I had written a song called “Cokie The Clown,” about a bitter birthday clown who gets out of rehab and takes petty revenge on his audience by dosing them with various drugs.

"Oh no, not clown shoes! I must be in for some pretty bad news!" Flora's mother, Ella, said when Flora telephoned her that evening.
"What do you mean, Mother? I've just given you some pretty bad news"
"It's a song, "Clown Shoes" I've been trying to remember the words for years, and who it was by. Was it Johnny Burnette?
… anyway, in the song, this girl sends her boyfriend a pair of clown shoes to tell him they're through. It's hilarious - as if sending clown shoes was standard dating protocol. Do you think there was a special clowns' shoe department in the shoe store, or that they had to buy them from a circus? Anyway, it ends up with the boy putting the clown shoes on. Sad.
