Acrobats

It’s showtime, hundreds watch
There’s a spotlight that waits for you
You hope you will not miss your cue
You hope your partner makes the catch

Here’s the death defying act
That launches you into the air
Love’s a trick that few would dare—
Except for fools and acrobats

Three cheers for the acrobats!
Three cheers for the acrobats!
Three cheers for the acrobats of love!

It’s give and take, it’s knowing when
To go for broke or take it slow
Holding fast and letting go
Turning round to uphold again

And a hand in a loving hand
You’re ready now to risk it all
Fools are not afraid to fall
And acrobats know how to land

Three cheers for the acrobats!
Three cheers for the acrobats!
Three cheers for the acrobats of love!

See them spinning high above!
See them dancing on the wirе!
See them leap through hoops of fire:
Thе acrobats of love!

Your ladder’s braced, your ropes are strong
You’ve checked your equipment twice
Practiced hard to get it right
But you can laugh with things go wrong

In time, though your bodies crack
Your hearts will only grow in skill
May your love be limber still
When you’re old fools and acrobats

Three cheers for the acrobats!
Three cheers for the acrobats!
Three cheers for the acrobats of love!

Three cheers for the acrobats!
Three cheers for the acrobats!
Three cheers for the acrobats of love!
