When the brass played.

When the brass played.

When the brass played.

When the brass played.

When the brass played.

When the brass played.

The Circus gave a last bow to their biggest crowd

When the brass played.

The Evasive Man tipped his hat, and that was that

When the brass played.

When the brass played.

When the brass played.

The Zookeeper's life work complete, they drifted off to sleep

When the brass played.

And no one gave a fuss, when the world turned to rust

because the brass played.
