The Lyrics

ah...look at all the freaky people
ah...look at all the freaky people

robert l. ripley
showed us the sights...in the world...that were wild and extreme
seldomly seen
look at the weirdos
scary, their fate...for their deeds...were more strange than the norm
comic strip form

all the freaky people...where do they all come from ?
all the freaky people...he knew where they belonged

author of frenzy
rites, so absurd...and inhuman...that logic ain't clear
doubt may appear
bob would keep working
claiming his facts...were airtight...ask for proof, if you dare
he was prepared

all the freaky people...where do they all come from ?
all the freaky people...he knew where they belonged

ah...look at all the freaky people
ah...look at all the freaky people

robert l. ripley
died, i have heard...books still carry...his wonderful name
noble, his fame
strange things bring whimsy
facts are researched...books are crammed...ripley laughs from his grave
oddities saved

all the freaky people...where do they all come from ?
all the freaky people...he knew where they belonged
