Barbara Streisand made our weekend here at C&L with a very funny rendition of "Send in the Clowns," directed straight at the heart of one Donald Trump. Here are the lyrics, courtesy of Broadway World. (This fan video misses the first part of the first verse.) Enjoy, and discuss amongst yourselves, dahlinks!

VERSE 1
IS HE THAT RICH?
MAYBE HE'S POOR?
'TIL HE REVEALS HIS RETURNS
WHO CAN BE SURE?
WHO NEEDS THIS CLOWN?

VERSE 2
SOMETHING'S AMISS
I DON'T APPROVE
IF HE WERE RUNNING THE FREE WORLD,
WHERE WOULD WE MOVE?
NAME ME A TOWN?
JUST WHO IS THIS CLOWN?

BRIDGE
AND WHEN WE THOUGHT WE'D HEARD IT ALL
HUFFING AND PUFFING ABOUT HIS BIG FANTASY WALL
MAKING HIS ENTRANCE ON STAGE...
HE JUST SHOOTS FROM THE HIP
HE'S FULL OF BULL
HE'S LOST HIS GRIP!

["Since Putin likes me, I like him! Sounds like a 4-year old!"]

VERSE 3
AND IF BY CHANCE
HE GETS TO HEAV'N
EVEN UP THERE HE'LL DECLARE...
CHAPTER ELEV'N!
WHO'D HIRE THIS CLOWN?
THIS SAD VULGAR CLOWN...
"YOU'RE FIRED" YOU CLOWN!

BRIDGE 2
HILLARY'S KIND...
SMART THAT IS CLEAR
WHILE SHE IS GIVING US HOPE...TRUMP IS SELLING US FEAR
LOOK HOW HE CHANGES HIS VIEWS EVERY TIME THAT HE SPEAKS
IT'S LIE AFTER LIE
CAN'T TAKE EIGHT MORE WEEKS!

VERSE 4
THIS IS NO FARCE
MAYBE HE'S BROKE?
IS THIS "THE ART OF HIS DEAL"
OR SOME AWFUL JOKE?
YOU'VE GOT TO ADMIT...
THIS SILLY HALF-WIT...
IS SO FULL OF ­_ _ _ _!

And dahlinks, you might want to watch this classic clip from SNL while you're catching your breath from that unforgettable and hilarious performance. Streisand fans unite!!!
