I am convinced everyone has at least one nonsense song in their head from childhood. For one of my best friends, it is the relentless jingle from a toothpaste commercial. For me…it is the theme song from Bozo, The Clown. This is the song in its entirety. I do not know whether this is the official national theme song for Bozo or simply the local version from Flint, Michigan when I was six and my brother was two. Baby brother, Donny, this one’s for you:

       Hello world, every boy…every gal!

       This is Bozo, The Clown.

       Yes, this is your old pal.

       I’ve brought you a bag full of rootin’ tootin’ tricks!

       One, two, three, four, five, and six!

        The funniest man in the whole human race

         is going to put a smile on your face.

         So just keep laughing and don’t you ever frown…

         cause Bozo is back!

         The one and only Bozo, The Clown!


I would have included a picture, but I am afraid of clowns.
