Here we are, now where are we?
It's like nothing I've ever seen

We got a hoarse-throated huckster's whispered gimmicks
Rubbernecking all the curious cynics
Headlong-walkers, one born every minute
Do I plug it in, or do I stick it in it?

Well I don't know what came over me
I'm too dumb for words
Well I didn't think I'd like it here at all
But I swear, I swear I'm on the verge

Here we are, now who are you?
The long lost Queen's of some Hoodoo?

Well we're the last of the big-time penetrators
Playin' dead to fuck the undertaker
The movie'll come out a little bit later
The men, the legend, the goat, the satyr

Well I don't know what came over me
I'm too dumb for words
Well I didn't think I'd like it here at all
But I swear, I swear I'm on the verge
On the verge, I'm on the verge, on the verge
Woah! I'm on the verge!

Here we are, now don't ask how
The time to leave was kinda now

Don't cry, baby, no cause for grief
Dead heading's never gonna kill the chief
It's an empty road without a relief
I'm a highway romance milking thief

Well I don't know what came over me
I'm too dumb for words
Well I didn't think I'd like it here at all
But I swear, I swear I'm on the verge

Well I don't know what came over me
I'm too dumb for words
Well I didn't think I'd like it here at all
But I swear, I swear I'm on the verge
On the verge, on the verge, on the verge
