Big Top
Written by: Jimmy Buffett, Roger Guth
Performed by: Jimmy Buffett

Originally from the Album: Buffet Hotel (2009)

Lyrics:
Just like Santa, I come around once a year
Time to break out all of your party gear
There’ll be a jump up out on the lawn
Just look for those fins
Singin’ along with your favorites once again.

Walkin’ this tumultuous tight rope ain’t no sweat
Nowhere else I’d rather be, you can bet
Workin without a net might seem severe
But if I fall I know it will appear.

And it’s a big time under the big top
There’s nothin’ wrong with that
Rhumba-ing in my flipfops
I’m an assessory in front of the pack
Come on baby, let’s rock
The circus has come to town
It’s a big time under the big top
Don’t you just love the sound.

Fortune tellers full of gossip and news
The tattoo man is wearing his points of view
Under the big top’s where we all belong
Just a good vibe crowd happen to sing along

And it’s a big time under the big top
Ain’t nothing wrong with that
Dancing the part in my flipfops
Watching this three ring act
Come on baby, let’s rock
The circus has come to town
It’s a big time under the big top
Don’t you love to move around?

Musical bridge; lead guitar

Just like Santa I come around once a year
HO HO HO
Time to break out all of your party gear
There’ll be a jump up out on the lawn
Just look for those fins
Left right left
Singing along with your favorites once again.

And it’s a big time under the big top
Ain’t noting wrong with that
Rhumba-ing in my flipflops
Watching this three-ring act
Come on baby, let’s rock
The circus has come to town
It’s a big time under the big top
Don’t you just love the sound?
Love the sound
Move around

Da da da da da
Da da da da da
