I STAYED TOO LONG AT THE FAIR (Streisand Barbra)

I wanted the music to play on forever Have I stayed too long at the fair? I wanted the clown to be constantly clever Have I stayed too long at the fair? I bought me blue ribbons to tie up my hair, But I couldn't find anybody to care; The merry-go-round is beginning to slow now Have I stayed too long at the fair? The music has stop and the children must go now Have I stayed too long at the fair? Oh, mother dear, I know you're very proud, Your little girl in gingham is so far above the crowd; No, daddy dear, You never could have known That I would be successful, yet so very much alone... I wanted to live in a carnival city, With laughter and love everywhere; I wanted my friends to be thrilling and witty, I wanted somebody to care; I found my blue ribbons all shiny and new But now I discover them no longer blue... The merry-go-round is beginning to taunt me, Have I stayed too long at the fair? There's nothing to win And there's no one to want me Have I stayed too long at the fair?
