Beasts both wild and domestic have got The taste and smell of human creatures, But to walk every day on their hind feet is The poor humansí unfortunate lot. Today the audience, today the audience Is fed up with circus trainers and their dominance, But if you really want to dominate Work in the police force - that would be great! Just a few decent people have got The taste and smell of human creatures, But to walk every day on their hind feet is The poor beastsí sad unfortunate lot. Today the residents, today the residents Are fed up of town officials and their dominance, But if you really want to dominate Work in the circus - that would be great!
