Carnival In Kenora

by Joni Mitchell

Twinkle, twinkle, what a pity
Alone alone on such a pretty night
With enchantment on your side
Popcorn, popcorn, cotton candy
Soft voice whispered, "This all can be right
If you come and share a ride"

Carnival in Kenora
I let him take me for a ride
On a giant Ferris wheel
Up in the neon sky
Or far from the barker's cry
One kiss can sometimes make you feel
Like a spinning Ferris wheel

All the tents are taken down now
All that's left is scuffled ground now
Still the magic echoes in the sand
Popcorn, popcorn, cotton candy
Now a stranger takes my hand; we smile
And the magic understands

Carnival in Kenora
I let him take me for a ride
On a giant Ferris wheel
Up in the neon sky
Or far from the barker's cry
One kiss can sometimes make you feel
Like a spinning Ferris wheel
