Aall (x02220@1)the world was a stage dive,
                      Eall (022100@1)the world loved a clown,

                              A- (x02220@1)Ab- (xx1114@1)Gb- (244322@1)Eand (022100@1)all the clowns in the house

stared up at the stage.
                   EThey (022100@1)used to get so mad.
                    DThe (xx0232@1)had such a good thing that day

AThey (x02220@1)lost their nerve,
EThey (022100@1)just went straight.
DThey (xx0232@1)didn't have the balls to hold it down and

they brought everybody else right down with them
While clowns must stand.

So welcome.
Welcome to the scene!
You've all got to come out and have a drink with me. I'll buy round one,
you buy round two,
you buy round three.
We'll make a toast to absent friends
and better days,
to remembering and being remembered as brave
and not as a bunch of whining jerks.
To the quitters and the complainers,
if we never meet again remember this --

All the world is a stage dive
All the world loves a clown.
You know that clowns hate them and
how hard it is to get a clown out of the house
and up on the stage.
But tonight you've come, you're here, I'm so glad.
Don't forget how it feels kids and don't crap out.

Don't lose your nerve.
Do not go straight.
You must testify or
I'm going to come to your house to
punch you in the mouth
'cause clowns must stand.

When a clown goes straight all clowns are hurt. When a clown abandons his passion
all his friends end up with egg on the face.
Clowns must stand.
