A carnival in town

Take off, take a seat
with the big procession.
A carnival is in town!
Buy a mask
and a feather for your hat.
Forget yourself,
conceal yourself
behind a laughter.
Be someone else instead,
paint an eye on your forehead.
Hey man, cool man!
Swinging calypso,
bongos, congas,
Hawaiian flowers, pineapple ice cream.
Death dances in a trance
round and round
and somewhere
a child sleeps in the street.
Conceal yourself
forget about tomorrow - live today!
Join the procession,
come on and dance.
Everybody say yeah, yeah.
