The Lyrics

what's that man holding in his hand ?
its worth a lot...made by guys who lived way back then
a frameless painting by a famous hand ?
could be...oo-ee
what's that man bringing to the stage ?
its looks a lot like a gun of a certain gauge
a wartime relic from a different age ?
could be...oo-ee

there's a...road show...and we all gotta go
they got...old chairs...that are heavy and square
they got...lots of gold...and some vases so old...
they are rare...oh yeah

the folks go down...when they're in town...okay
they've got a knack...for artifacts
condition counts...appraisers pounce...they say...
values may you best be wise...what you buy

there's a...road show...they got violins and bows
they take...hard your tables and chairs
they got...pots and bowls...that have value untold
we'll be there...oh yeah

i've a gold lame suit...that ol' elvis once sin city
and a ring with a diamond that a setting, so pretty
its a pity...the cost of this gear...was too much to spend
says the dashing young man...who's so confident...that he seems giddy
flitty ?...witty ?....ha ha

what's the man waving to and fro ?
thinks its a fortune but the value is so very low
sometimes that's how the breaks go
could be...oo-ee

there's a...road show...with a vincent van gogh
they got...things, rare...with a great deal of flair
they got..barber poles...and some papyrus scrolls
we'll be there...oh yeah

there's a...road show
there's a...road show
there's a...road show
