Lyrics:
Verse

[Lucio]
You must do like this-a [trick]
You must do like this-a [trick]

[Susan]
Oh no, not-a without a mat-a.

[Lucio]
It's easy you try-a [trick]

[Susan]
Easy, my eye-a [on her fanny]

[Lucio]
Just-a practice you must-a.

[Susan]
I will till I bust-a.

Verse

Mother, look, I'm an acrobat
Baby's jumped in the ring
Once I sat as a back-row bat,
Now I nip up and spring.
Hear your daughter yell, "Allez-up!"
With the strong man I'll play.
Watch them lift this tamale up
And we'll rally up all the crowd there.
I have never groused about
Showing my from in tights
Or watching a clown or roustabout
in fight-
Join the circus and see the world,
Monkey and tiger pup.
Now my circus will be the world.
I'm an acrobat "Allez-up!"
