Sun down, sun down
They're taking all the tents down
Where have you gone my handsome Billy?

Sun down, sun down
The carnival trains leave town
Where are you now darling Billy?

We won't be dancing together on the high wire
Facing the lions with you at my side anymore
We won't be breathing the smoke and the fire
On the midway

Hanging from the trapeze
My wrists waiting for your wrists
Sun down, sun down
They're taking all the tents down
Where have you gone my handsome Billy?

Sun down, sun down
The carnival trains leave town
Where are you now darling Billy?

We won't be dancing together on the high wire
Facing the lions with you at my side anymore
We won't be breathing the smoke and the fire
On the midway

Hanging from the trapeze
My wrists waiting for your wrists
