I ain't got no fun today, it's just like yesterday
Oh yeah, only different shades of grey
I'm bored right out of my skull
I'd have to get high just to be dull

I'm institutional
My TV screen
Spins around and around
And around and around

I need a sideshow
Some kinda creep show
They ran the circus out of town
But the ring master said, "Boy, you can stick around"

I pay to see all the freaks
Some finger lickin' chicken-eating geek
Hey, that sounds cool to me
I just want to step inside

I want a scary ride
Oh yeah, see Jekyll turn to Hyde
I fell my head spinnin' round and around
And around and around

I need a sideshow, oh yeah
Some kinda creep show, oh yeah
I just want someplace to go, oh yeah
I tried to be the circus clown
But even my monkey wouldn't hang around

And the hunchback midget
And his twisted friends
Offer me a world of thrills
That never end

I need a sideshow
Some kind of freaky show
Oh yeah, down where the neon glows
Just like a psychedelic video

Or a 24 hour party, go go go
Not a gozio, no
I need a sideshow
My private sideshow
