What's that circus theme called?

Hey all, my girlfriend is teaching her 6th grade students about the circus (history of, acts in, etc) and we're wondering what the name of that stereotypical circus song is (aka, "look at that guy on a unicycle!" song.)
Anyone know?
And as a side note, anyone know if anyone's done a punk version or anything? If I'm going to be forced to hear it the rest of my life, I at least want tohave it more hard-core Actually, the ska-band Common Sense used it in their song "Skankin' With the Worm"

Hey, this belongs in RSU.

"Entry of the Gladiators".

I wonder if the MIDI link still works in that thread...

Disallusioned...

I am so disappointed to find that a song with such a cool title is THAT song! My world view has come crashing down like a drunk clown on a giraffe, riding through a cactus patch...

What a beautiful simile. It's time to switch signature lines.

Do you mean "Look at the man on the flying trapeze. Flies through the air with the greatest of ease"?
