"Killer Klowns" also referred as "Killer Klowns (From Outer Space)" is the main theme from the 1988 horror comedy film Killer Klowns from Outer Space.

The song was performed by the music band The Dickies, who sing about the titular Killer Klowns and warn about the danger they suppose.

Lyrics

P.T. Barnum said it so long ago
There's one born every minute, don't you know
(Killer klowns)
Some make us laugh, some make us cry
These klowns only gonna make you die

Everybody's running when the circus comes into their towns
Everybody's gunning for the likes of the killer klowns
From outer space
Killer klowns from outer space

The ring mast shouts "Let the show begin"
Send in the klowns, let them do you in
(Killer Klowns)
See a rubber nose on a painted face
Bringing genocide to the human race

Its time to take a ride on a nightmare merry-go-round
You'll be dead on arrival from the likes of the killer klowns
From outer space
Killer klowns from outer space

There's cotton candy in their hands
Says the polka dotted man with a stalk of jacaranda
They're all diabolical bozos

Oh look around what do you see
Tell me what's become of humanity
(Killer klowns)
From California shores to New York Times Square
Barnum and Bailey everywhere

If you've ever wondered why the population's going down
Blame it on the plunder of the likes of the killer klowns
From outer space
Killer klowns from outer space

Killer klowns
Killer klowns
Killer klowns
Killer klowns
Killer klowns
From outer space

Killer klowns
From outer space...
