Lyrics

As the signs outside proclaimed:
"Nature sometimes makes a mistake"
Was it the mother or the father to blame?
Inside the damp grass and tilted tent

As the signs outside proclaimed:
"Nature sometimes makes a mistake"
Was it the mother or the father to blame?
Inside the damp grass and tilted tent

Won't you come with me to the fairground?
Your head will be spinning
I said your head is your feet

And the man at the side of me starts a lewd laugh
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
At the cat with two heads and the dog with eight legs
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
The man has come between us, his cheeks rattle like a fence
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
He's come between us and he starts a lewd laugh
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha

I sought shelter from the storm in a small inn by the coast
In the children's room three identical sisters sat
except for the one that was hideously deformed
Her grotesque features seemed to parody her sisters' beauty
Ridiculing and mocking everything I held dear

Won't you come with me to the fairground?
Your head will be spinning
I said your head is your feet

And the man at the side of me starts a lewd laugh
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
At the cat with two heads and the dog with eight legs
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
The man has come between us, his cheeks rattle like a fence
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
He's come between us and he starts a lewd laugh
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha

The fish-eyed foetus floated blankly in the yellowed water, still as wax
The man came between us, my sister and I
Ridiculing and parodying everything we held dear
Making a mockery of our former emotions
Dragging it all down to his level

Won't you come with me to the fairground?
Your head will be spinning

And the man at the side of me starts a lewd laugh
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
At the cat with two heads and the dog with eight legs
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
The man has come between us, his cheeks rattle like a fence
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
He's come between us and he starts a lewd laugh
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha

And then we went for rides

Roll up, roll up... fast ride... come on spin those cars boys, it makes the girls scream. The louder you scream the faster we go. C'mon roll up, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, the ride of a lifetime, there's plenty of seats, c'mon don't be shy. C'mon roll up... c'mon! C'mon!

And the man at the side of me starts a lewd laugh
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha...

(Screams and laughs)

And then we went for rides
