Send in the Clowns

I have been searhing around, and found a very nice song, "Send in the Clowns" from the musical "A little Night Music". Despite what the name suggests, this is no circus song, but it's a ballad, altough some say it's also a waltz because of the 12/8 time signature. The term "send in the clowns" reflects a failed theather show whereby the last resort is to "send in the clowns". The song however reflects the failed relationship between the lover and the singer, sung in an angry, regreting tune. There are several version.. the original being sung:

This version is very nice, performed by Judy Collins

The next being the official song of the DCI team Santa Clara Vanguard.

This version is the piano version. I'm currently trying learn this song... Wish me luck XP...
