The Man On The Flying Trapeze

The Man on the Flying Trapeze is the song in the video A Day at the Circus. It was originally written by the leotard inventor Jules Leotard.


Dinny McGuire: I now call your attention with the apex of the circus big top, for an astounding aerial acrobatics...with The Flying Garcia!

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.
