The Lyrics

One of us! One of us! Gooble-Gobble! Gooble-Gobble! One of us!
To join our circus need to lack limbs
That's basically O-D-D
(D, D, D, D)
Those lobster claws rock
Cause we're all born this strange, Freaky

My mama had a beard that's quite long
My daddy swallowed swords
Medusa hair is what my sister's got
When you see them jaws are floored

My grandpa is the same weight as our car
That's how my family all gets paid
My brother's one half girl it's bizarre
Down the middle like two shades

To join the freak show is great
One leg but can figure skate
Genetics gone whack, Crazy
We were born this strange

It glows bright pink when I sweat
Like the X-Men, We're mutant
I've got a huge rack, Busty
But three tits is strange (Born this strange)

See my aunt suck down that flame
I might be a whore for fame
Baby, We were born this strange (Born this strange)
You are chubby and ashamed
My toenails they can maim
And this is our knack, Freaky
We were born this strange!

Head's like a stag's, Your antlers gleam
No paper bag, Just join our team
Then you can brag and live the dream
(Like me, like me, like me)

Folks kept their distance, Bad words were said
Lizard kid, Please join our Troop
It's not a gimmick though the tourists roar
"Freaks burn in Hell cause we've been duped!"

In scales you're covered, With fangs you grin
We all are basically O-D-D, Heeeeeeeey!
You'll get a wife who can sprout feathers and
Will chug down cups of gasoline

So join our Freak Show, Get paid
And with some midgets get laid
Eat rats as a snack? Creepy!
We are born this strange!!!

If there's a time that you fret
Cause you are Simese Triplets
Then don't take their flack, Sweeties
We're all born this strange!

If your skin's purple or it's gray
Ribs like a Xylophone you play
Creepy but we're born this strange (Born this strange)
Like a goat we'll hear you bray
Crazy but we're born
Hair is like a grown yak, Fuzzy
We were born this strange!

(Like me)
It's not a gag or make-believe
If smoke blows from your ears don't grieve
We're cracked, frights, crazed so don't lament
If you're diseased or head is dent

Come join in our festivities
If made of glass with beard of bees
Your voice is way high-pitched in range
We're freaky but we were born this strange!

Look like a snake then apply
Thespians don't need a fife
If teeth are coal black, Icky
Then in the Big Top you'll thrive

Transparent stomach is gazed
Or hair is a raging blaze
Then join our crew it's easy
With your fish fin just wave

Your cuticles on the floor drag
Or have a tail that wags
That talent they lack, Jelly
We were born this strange!

Don't stick with nasty parents
You are a fine one eyed gent
They might think you're unsightly
But we're born this strange, Yeah!

If on garbage you can graze
You will make the crowd amazed
Freaky but you're born this strange
(Born this strange)

That's how we our earn our pay
Uncle sports his horns
Don't wear that old sack, Jamie
We were born this strange

We were born this strange, Hey!
We were born this strange, Hey!
You've got a humpback? Sexy!
Cause we're born this strange!

We don't need to change, Nay!
We don't need to change, Nay!
Come sleep in our shack, Eddie
We were born this strange, Yay!

We're dealt this fate
So let's be strange!
We've got these traits
So let's be strange!

No secret that I'm a fan of list parodies - whish I had come up with this one. 555.

(ABC) This was really good. You matched the tone of the OS so perfectly. At first about halfway through the song, I was worried you weren't going to give us that many examples, but you came through and hit us with tons of them and they were ridiculous and silly and always fun. Great job man, this was freakishly fun!

Lots of colorful imagery here carried through to the song's end. Reminded me of that show about the real life freakshow family Netflix was running, a happy crew.

Running away to join the circus does sounds like it'd lead to an interesting life.

(ABC) A couple of pacing flubs here and there, nothing I couldn't fix in my head. Other than that, this was pretty good despite being kinda listy, exactly the right amount of funny without being too insulting. 555 tickets!

I noticed a couple pacing issues as well, but this was a really fun and inspired read. Nicely done!
