Tattoo'd lady, bearded baby, they're my family
When I was lonely, something told me where I could always be
Where I could wish for pennies, if we had any
You'd meet me down at the shooting gallery
Yes, I'm a fair ground baby, wonder what made me
Fall for the Pearly Queen

I spent my youth under canvas roof
As I roamed from town to town
I'm not fooling when I say I got no schoolin'
Never like the school bell sound

From the caravan, I hear the fairground band
Sounding good as they can be
You know I can't be found
If you look around, tomorrow we'll be gone by dawn, alright

Now hear it on the loud speaker say
The fire eater is a real fine sight to see
Yeah, he's a death cheater, some kind of central heater
Be sure to save a seat for me, hey

Let me tell you 'bout wicked Sadie
She's no baby, the law came and tried to close her sideshow down
But soon she had the, the cheering
The police chief wearing her garter for a crown

I spent my youth under canvas roof
As I roamed from town to town
Not fooling when I say I got no schoolin'
Never like the school bell sound

From the caravan, I hear the fairground band
Sounding good as they can be
You know I can't be found
If you look around, tomorrow we'll be gone by dawn, yeah, yeah

Tattoo'd lady, bearded baby, they're my family
When I was lonely, something told me where I could always be
Where I could wish for pennies, if we had any
You'd meet me down at the shooting gallery
Tattoo'd lady
