Lyrics

Remember the days when there was no picture show?
Saturday night where did everyone go?
To the local pantomime for the Harlequin show
Everybody loved the Harlequin

The curtain went up to reveal the clown
Playing the fool and watching the crowd
Romancing his fantasies he's playing out loud

He sees the light now
It shines so bright now
He hears the crowd hush
He feels his blood rush

(From behind the eyes of the red and black mask)
(Come see him dance behind the masquerade)

He stakes his claim now, he'll act his mime now
Harlequin, Harlequin

The people came out to be entertained
By the clown beneath his coloured crown
Playing the fool and watching the crowds

They see the shadow fleeing the night now
The power of the mystic much larger than life now

(From behind the eyes of the red and black mask)
(Come see him dance behind the masquerade)

Who'll take his place now?
Who'll act his mind now?
Harlequin, Harlequin

The lights all stayed out
And the curtains stayed down
Nobody laughed and nobody cried
The doors all stayed shut
The pantomime died
Everybody loved the Harlequin

Ooh Ooh Ooh Harlequin
