Lyrics for 'The Man on the Flying Trapeze'

He floats through the air
With the greatest of ease
The daring young man
On the flying trapeze
His movements are graceful
He tries hard to please
I know that he must be the best

He floats through the air
Doing turns like a bird
He flies without wings
At least that's what I've heard
He flips and he flies
High above you and I
I wonder when he will come down

He catches the bar
In only one hand
He must be the bravest
In all of the land
He flips and he turns
Oh where did he learn
To fly the way that he does
