Yes! That's what I saw...the Lancers...wonderful.


    Mister Pastry 1979
You were an old time trooper
Doing an old time show
Laughing and falling over
And everyone loved you so
Baggy old coat and trousers
Bowler hat on your head
You understood the children
They followed where you led

Oh, won't you come back, we're asking
we know we let you down
you were a simple clown
who couldn't understand
how we could turn away from
all the joy you shared
to those who never cared
who smashed your wonderland

Pantomime horse and hero
Pantomime dame and fool
Once it was like a ladder
You climbed your way up from school
Now it's all beer and bawdy
Nobody learns their trade
The bluer the next comedian
The sooner he'll make the grade

I have a son who's growing
he needs to laugh with me
I need to be the young child
I always used to be
I need an old time trooper
Doing an old time show
Laughing and falling over
And all the kids love him so
