lyrics

Hey! It's your lucky day
Step this way, come and watch us play
What's that sound? Come from miles around
The Circus has come to town

So you've come to see the glamour of the greatest show of all
As we scrape our living down here in the dust
With your bellies full and empty heads, laughing as you go
Are you watching the freaks? Or just part of the show

Hey! It's your lucky day
Step this way, come and watch us play
What's that sound? Come from miles around
The Circus has come to town

Consider if you will, the effort and the skill
This should be my finest hour, but the master has the power
The strong man is strong and the clown is a hoot
But we all jump to the tune of the ringmaster's boot
So you see me do my magic tricks, you cannot comprehend
Yet I sleep with the beasts and I'm kicked by the men
See them cheer him, so adoring and proud
But are the clowns in the ring, or sat in the crowd?

Hey! It's your lucky day
Step this way, come and watch us play
What's that sound? Come from miles around
The Circus has come to town

But have you seen the one? They call her Queen Of The Night
As she dances all alone, her body melting in the light
A man would die for just one kiss, but the master holds the key
Just like the wild beasts she is his, she'll never never be free
Behold! Come and feast your eyes
See what my queen has in store
And not a sound can be heard, she holds them all in her stare
The beasts obey her every word from this creature so rare
Behold! Come and feast your eyes
See what my queen has in store
Don't you want her? Want to hold her close
The queen of your night, forever more
But she's mine
She's mine

And when the curtain falls she waits all alone
Til he comes back in the small hours to make her all his own
She's the queen of his night, so sickening and obscene
While he stinks of drink and whores and hell, she can smell just where he's been
"King of the beasts!" he tells her as he beats her once again
And she knows that there's no fouler beast and she vows through her pain that one day ...
"One day. One day."
