The Lyrics

Hot August night
And the lights drooping down
And the cigars all around smelling sweet
Walk up the path
To the back of the fair
To the sound of the old carney's speech
Sit's a ragged tent
Where there ain't no seats
And that carney's voice
Saying "come and see"

It's freaks
Brother Freak's, see Brother Freak's Traveling Monstrosity Show
Pack up the babies
To see bearded ladies
And everyone goes
Cause everyone knows
Brother Freak's show

Tent gets suddenly still
And when you'd almost thought
You could hear a pin drop, one limps in
Hair, red as fire
And when he lifts his shirt
Every eye in the place is on him

Moving strange and slow
Like one of Bush's twins
And when he turns around
You can see his fins

It's freaks
Brother Freak's, see Brother Freak's Traveling Monstrosity Show
Pack up the babies
To see bearded ladies
And Everyone goes
Cause Everyone knows
'Bout Brother Freak's show

Hallelujah
People! I said people
Now you got yourself real good views
And when you see Monkey Girl walking you got to reach out and point right at her
Cause that's what she's there for
And when your stomach is churning you got to reach for that thrash can
Reach out to the Rubbermaid there
Cause that's what it's there for

Give me three dollars
Walk with me this way
See the Pony Boy
Eating on his hay
freaky, freaky, freaky, freaky, freaky, freaky, freaky, freaky

Freaks
Brother Freak's, see Brother Freak's Traveling Monstosity Show
Pack up the Babies
To see bearded ladies
And Every one goes
I say Freak's,
Brother Freak, see Brother Freak's Traveling Monstrosity Show
Pack up the Babies
To see bearded ladies
And everyone goes
