Come Look at the Freaks - Lyrics

COMPANY
Come look at the freaks
The pygmies and geeks
Come examine these aberrations
Their malformations
Grotesque physiques
Only pennies for peeks
Come look at the freaks

MEN
Come look at the freaks
(Ah, ah, ah)
They'll haunt you for weeks

ALL
Come explore why they fascinate you
Exasperate you
And flush your cheeks

WOMAN
Come hear how love speaks

ALL
Come look at the freaks

SIR
Ladies and Gentlemen
Step right up
Right this way
There is no wait
We don't waste your time
So little to pay
Just one thin dime
Gains you admission
To my odditorium
Never have you seen
A comparable emporium
Of wonders under one tent
Your dime could not be better spent

Come see a curious gal
The bearded lady
See a man with an extra appendage
Instead of two legs there's three
Come see our tattooed girl
She's a walking marquee

Come see our elegant geek
Refined but deadly
Chicken necks delight his incisors
Their heads decorate the mud
His favourite cocktail drink?
It's warm chicken blood!

From the barren desert
Of the heathen camel trade
The lizard man of Khartoum
An encounter with him will mean certain doom
And from the Far East
See this intriguing specimen
Is it woman? Is it man?
I guess you'll be satisfied either way
With half and half from Saipan!

Come have your fortune foretold!
Then see a boy who's a dog!
The living Venus de Milo lacking both arms!
And from the Siberian tundra --
The world's tiniest Cossacks!

He's punctured! He's pierced!
He's the human pin cushion!

ALL
Come see God's mistakes
The freaks God forsakes
Take a look at exotic creatures
Their mangled features
The mess God makes

SIR
And we don't harbour fakes

ALL
Come see God's mistakes

SIR
From the inky jungles
Of the darkest continent
Time to witness first hand
The ferocity of the cannibal king
We keep him chained up
Because we know he's hankering
For a taste of one of you
And you are here for enlightenment
Not stock for cannibal stew

Ladies and Gentlemen
With great pride
Misty-eyed
I now present
The stars of our show
No duo is more simpatico
Though their condition
Is called "abnormality"
They've developed charm
And gifts of musicality
Their bond immutably strong
Just listen to their haunting song

DAISY AND VIOLET
Ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah-ah

SIR
Scientists tell me that Siamese twins
come from the same life germ
and that their complete separation was
retarded in some way -- perhaps, while
pregnant, their mother witnessed dogs
stuck together copulating.

They are called "Siamese" after
Chang and Eng, the first widely
known specimens. Siamese twins
share everything -- yet remain
completely separate in their minds,
bodily functions and, presumably,
their souls.
But enough about science.
Sing, girls, sing!

DAISY AND VIOLET
Ahh ahhh ahhhh
Ah, ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah-ah
Ahhh ahh ahhh
Ah-ahhh-ahh-ah
ahh-ahhhhh

SIR
Come look at the Freaks (Spread the word)
The pygmies and geeks (Tell the world)
What you've seen and heard

SIR AND ALL
Come examine these aberrations
Their malformations
Grotesque physiques

SIR
Only pennies for peeks

SIR AND ALL
Come look at the freaks!
