BIG TOP SHOW
I live in the desert
east of California
it’s been about four years gone
since I jumped that circus train
and threw my lot in with these hucksters
on the Big Top show
don’t peek behind the curtain
some things are better not to know
.
see the Lizard Man
his face is covered with tattoos
check out the Bearded Lady – she’s a dude from Santa Cruz
the Midway Barker will seduce you
with his lies and love and luck
first he’ll pick your pocket, girl
and then he’ll pick you up
.
’cause we are barkers
we are cheaters
we are liars
we are thieves
we’re in the business of denial
yeah we are selling you your dreams and we are good at it
we’re better than you’ll ever know
so come on step right up here people for the Big Top show
.
Leon is a strongman, claims to lift 1,000 pounds
but those barbells are hollow
magnets hold them to the ground
Trixie is the madame of a tent they call ‘Delights’
you can see them lining up for her almost every Friday night
.
(repeat chorus)
.
Lady Kathryn is our psychic
she’ll tell you what you want to hear
the conjoined twins are sick today
so you’ll have to come back next year
the World’s Largest Lady
she died three weeks ago
we had a moment of silence for her
before we buried there by the road
.
(repeat chorus … )
