or
Barbra Streisand

Hm, hm,
Hm, hm,
I wanted the music to play on forever
Have I stayed too long at the fair?
I wanted the clown to be constantly clever
Have I stayed too long at the fair?
I brought me blue ribbons to tie up my hair,
But I couldn't find anybody to care;
The merry-go-round is beginning to slow now
Have I stayed too long at the fair?
The music has stop and the children must go now
Have I stayed too long at the fair?
Oh, mother dear, I know you're very proud,
Your little girl and kingdom is so far above the crowd

No, daddy dear,
You never could have known
That I would be successful, yet so very much alone

I wanted to live in a carnival city,
With laughter and love everywhere
I wanted my friends to be thrilling and witty,
I wanted somebody to care,
I found my blue ribbons all shiny and new
But now I discover them no longer blue

The merry-go-round is beginning to taunt me,
Have I stayed too long at the fair?
There's nothing to win
And there's no one to want me
Have I stayed too long at the fair?
