Written by Leo Sayer and David Alexander Courtney
- as recorded by Three Dog Night (released March 16, 1974)
- entered the Billboard Top 40 the week of April 13, 1974 and
stayed for 12 weeks, peaking at #4 the week of May 25, 1974.

Baby, although I chose this lonely life
It seems it's stranglin' me now
All the wild men, big cigars, gigantic car
They're all laughin' at the lie

Oh, I've been used Ooo-oo-oo-oo (used)'
I've been a fool Oh, what a fool
I broke all the rules Oh, yeah
But I must let the show go on

Baby, there's an enormous crowd of people
They're all after my blood
I wish maybe they'd tear down the walls of this theatre
Let me out, let me out

Oh, I'm so blind Oh, I'm blind
I wasted time Wasted, wasted, wasted time
Walkin' on the wire, high wire
But I must let the show go on

----- instrumental break -----

Oh, I'm so blind Oh, I'm blind
I wasted time Wasted, wasted, all too much time
Walkin' on the wire, high wire
But I must let the show go on

Baby, I wish you'd help me escape
Help me get away
Leave me outside my address
Far away from this masquerade

'Cause I've been blind Oh, so blind
I wasted time Wasted, wasted, all too much time
Walkin' on the wire, high wire
But I must let the show go..
I must let the show go..
I must let the show go on
