Crowd

Come one, come all!

Leave your loops and milking stools

Coop the hens and pen the mules
Come one, come all!

Close the churches and the schools

It's the day for breaking rules

Come and join the feast of ...



Clopin

Fools!


Once a year we throw a party here in town

Once a year we turn all Paris upside down

Ev'ry man's a king and ev'ry king's a clown

Once again it's Topsy Turvy Day

It's the day the devil in us gets released

It's the day we mock the prig and shock the priest

Ev'rything is topsy turvy at the Feast of Fools!





Crowd

Topsy turvy!



Clopin

Ev'rything is upsy daysy!



Crowd

Topsy turvy!



Clopin

Ev'ryone is acting crazy

Dross is gold and weeds are a bouquet

That's the way on Topsy Turvy Day



All

Topsy Turvy!



Clopin and Crowd

Beat the drums and blow the trumpets



All

Topsy Turvy!



Clopin and Crowd

Join the bums and thieves and strumpets

Streaming in from Chartres to Calais



Clopin

Scurvy knaves are extra scurvy

On the sixth of "Januervy"



Clopin and Crowd

All because it's Topy Turvy Day!



Clopin

Come one, come all!

Hurry, hurry, here's your chance

See the myst'ry and romance

Come one, come all

See the finest girl in France

Make an entrance to entrance

Dance la Esmeralda

Dance!



Here it is, the moment you've been waiting for

Here it is, you know exactly what's in store

Now's the time we laugh until our sides get sore

Now's the time we crown the King of Fools!

So make a face that's horrible and frightening

Make a face as gruesome as a gargoyle's wing

For the face that's ugliest will be the King of Fools!

Why?





Crowd

Topsy turvy!



Clopin

Ugly folk, forget your shyness



Crowd

Topsy turvy!



Clopin

You could soon be called Your Highness!



Crowd

Put your foulest features on display

Be the king of Topsy Turvy Day!



Clopin

Ev'rybody!



Crowd

Once a year we throw a party here in town



Clopin

Hail to the king!



Crowd

Once a year we turn all Paris upside down



Clopin

Oh, what a king!



Crowd

Once a year, the ugliest will wear a crown



Clopin

Girls, give a kiss



Crowd

Once a year on Topsy Turvy Day



Clopin

We've never had a king like this



Clopin and Crowd

And it's the day we do the things that we deplore

On the other three hundred and sixty-four

Once a year we love to drop in

Where the beer is never stoppin

For the chance to pop some popinjay

And pick a king who'll put the "top" in

Topsy Turvy Day!

Mad and crazy, upsy-daisy, Topsy Turvy Day!
