Take me to the big show
Take me anywhere but here
Put me in the front row,
Make my problems disappear

Trapeze high wires,
Without a safety net
For the price of admission,
I wanna witness life or death

All the pretty girls get cut in half while the sad clowns make us laugh

I wanna make friends with the friends with the freaks,
I wanna throw it down with the clowns that I meet,
I wanna have a party in the middle of the street
I wanna have a party in the middle of the street
I wanna have a party in the middle of the street

Invite all the carnies
And the crazy acrobats
And bearded ladies
And the fire breathers
All the people
Just like me.

Are you ready to risk it all,
And be a human cannon ball?
Sharpen up those knives and throw em'
At the fool against the wall,
We're all against that wall

I wanna make friends with the friends with the freaks,
I wanna throw it down with the clowns that I meet,
I wanna have a party in the middle of the street
I wanna have a party in the middle of the street
I wanna have a party in the middle of the street

Invite all the carnies
And the crazy acrobats
And bearded ladies
And the fire breathers
All the people
Just like me.

Ladies and Gentlemen,
Boys and girls,
Come one, come all
To the Cirque dans la rue!
Check your troubles at the door,
You don't need em anymore!
Leave reality outside,
And come along for the ride,
But just remember
While you're watching us,
Do the things that we do!

We're watching you

All the pretty girls get cut in half while the sad clowns make us laugh.
All the pretty girls get cut in half while the sad clowns make us laugh.

I wanna make friends with the freaks,
I wanna throw it down with the clowns that I meet,
I wanna have a party in the middle of the street
I wanna have a party in the middle of the street
I wanna have a party in the middle of the street

Invite all the carnies
And the crazy acrobats
And bearded ladies
And the fire breathers
All the people
Just like me...

Just like me.

I wanna have a party in the middle of the street
I wanna have a party in the middle of the street
I wanna have a party in the middle of the street

Invite all the carnies
And the crazy acrobats
And bearded ladies
And the fire breathers
All the people
Just like me.

All the pretty girls get cut in half while the sad clowns make us laugh.
