There's only two types of people in the world:
The ones that entertain, and the ones that observe
Oh baby, I'm a put-on-a-show kinda girl
Don't like the backseat, gotta be first

(Whoa)

I'm like the ringleader
I call the shots (Call the shots)
I'm like a firecracker,
I make it hot


When I put on a show
I feel the adrenaline moving through my veins
Spotlight on me and I'm ready to break

I'm like a performer
The dance floor is my stage
Better be ready
Hope that you feel the same

All eyes on me in the center of the ring
Just like a circus
When I crack that whip everybody gon' trip
Just like a circus

Don't stand there watchin' me,
Follow me, show me what you can do
Everybody let go, we can make a dance floor
Just like a circus

There's only two types of guys out there:
Ones that can hang with me, and the ones that are scared
So baby, I hope that you came prepared
I run a tight shift, so beware

I'm like the ringleader
I call the shots (Call the shots)
I'm like a firecracker
I make it hot

When I put on a show,
I feel the adrenaline moving through my veins
Spotlight on me and I'm ready to break

I'm like a performer
The dance floor is my stage
Better be ready
Hope that you feel the same

All eyes on me in the center of the ring
Just like a circus
When I crack that whip everybody gon' trip
Just like a circus

Don't stand there watchin' me,
Follow me, show me what you can do
Everybody let go, we can make a dance floor
Just like a circus

Let's go!

(Uh, uh, uh, uh, Uh-huh)
Let me see what you can do
(Uh, uh, uh, uh, Uh-huh)
I'm running this
(Like, like, like, like a circus)
Yeah, like a what?
(Like, like, like, like a circus)

All eyes on me in the center of the ring
Just like a circus
When I crack that whip everybody gon' trip
Just like a circus

Don't stand there watchin' me,
Follow me, show me what you can do
Everybody let go, we can make a dance floor
Just like a circus

All eyes on me in the center of the ring
Just like a circus
When I crack that whip everybody gone trip
Just like a circus

Don't stand there watchin' me,
Follow me, show me what you can do
Everybody let go, we can make a dance floor
Just like a circus

    My name is Lacey Potter and I am going to die in 10 days. I am sworn to secrecy by my horrible cousins. I will be very grateful if you copy and paste this message onto 6 other lyric pages. If you don't I will kill you in your kitchen one very rainy and dreary day and you will die on the floor bleeding and crying and nobody will hear you because I will do it when noone is home besides you. If you do it I will come to you in your dreams and tell you the aweful secret my very evil cousins have sworn me to. But bewarecause I am as skinny as a pole and my face is sinking into my skull and I have cuts all over my body pouring with blood because I have tried to escape the evil laughs and torture of my cousins but have failed miserably -- creepy!
