Track Name: This Ain't The Circus
This ain't the circus
This ain't the circus
This ain't the circus
This is a serious show

If you came for nonstop action (yeah!)
If you came for a cheap thrill (yeah!)
Shut your plebeian mouth and kindly get out
'Cause you won't find that garbage here (aww!)

Did you miss the sign that says "Playhouse"?
We only do serious plays
You might say that's oxymoronic
If you think so, please go away

(x2)
This ain't the circus
This ain't the circus
This ain't the circus
This is a serious show

So don't you dare crack a smile in here, kid
Don't you dare give a titter
The only emotional states we accept
Are sad, angry, frightened and bitter

We only have one performer
But she's the best in the biz
So much so, she disrobes to show
What a serious actress she is

(x2)
This ain't the circus
This ain't the circus
This ain't the circus
This is a serious show
Track Name: Dangerous World
I'm not here to seduce you
Amuse you, delude you
Or leave you confused
I'm just here to remind you
That behind you there's a monster
Who's watching
He wants you

So don't go down that dark deserted alley
Don't go to the bar alone
Don't fly solo to Kuwait or Venezuela
Unless you never want to come home

One mistake
Is all it'll take
To tear your life to shreds
You need more than ambition
Or parental permission
Or else you'll wind up

So don't go down that dark deserted alley
Don't go to the bar alone
There's no escape, dear
You're never safe here
Your life is a combat zone

It's a dangerous place, this world of ours
It won't end very nicely
Time is short, your days are numbered
Might as well spend them wisely
Track Name: J'ai Oubliée mon français
J'ai oubliée tout mon français
Maintenant ma vie est folle
Je dis des choses vraiment absurdes
Qui sont souvent très drôles

Ma maison n'a pas de sens
Ma chambre n'a pas de fenêtres
Mon WC est dans la cuisine
Je mange sur la toilette

Je sors le soir et fais la fête
Quand je me sens malade
J'oublie quel type d'avocat
Est pour droit ou salade

Je bois du jus de vêtements
Je me vêtir de tomates
J'ai un costume avec crevette
Et une livre de cravates

J'ai oubliée tout mon français
Maintenant ma vie est folle
Je dis des choses vraiment absurdes
Qui sont souvent très drôles

English:
I’ve forgotten all my French
Now my life is crazy
I say truly absurd things
That are often very funny

My house doesn’t make sense
My room has no windows
My bathroom is in the kitchen
I eat on the toilet

I go out and party
When I’m feeling sick
I forget which type of [lawyer/avocado]
Is for law or salad

I drink clothing juice
I dress in tomatoes
I have a suit with a shrimp
And a pound of ties

I’ve forgotten all my French
Now my life is crazy
I say truly absurd things
That are often very funny
Track Name: Everyone Wants To Look Like A Lady
When I was a little girl
My mother took me to a party
All of the other girls had their hair up in curls
And dressed in gowns rich and gaudy

So overwhelmed was I that night
That I wandered onto the floor
Whirling and twirling, it was quite a sight
But I wanted to hurl

Nobody stopped
Nobody stopped
Nobody stopped to see
What a little girl was doing down there
Nobody stopped for me

Everyone wants to look like a lady
But nobody wants to be one
When you cross paths with some lovely lass
You don't really know if you've seen one
‘Cause underneath all of those diamonds and pearls
I'm told there hide some real demons
‘Cause everyone wants to look like a lady
But nobody wants to be one

So I climbed to the rooftop
And I surveyed the city
All of the gentlemen looking so handsome
And all of the women so pretty

Never before had I felt so alone
So I started to scream
Won't somebody break the silence
Wake from this beautiful dream

But nobody stopped
Nobody stopped
Nobody stopped to see
What a little girl was doing up there
Nobody stopped for me

Everyone wants to look like a lady
But nobody wants to be one
When you cross paths with some lovely lass
You don't really know if you've seen one
‘Cause underneath all of those diamonds and pearls
I'm told there hide some real demons
Yeah, everyone wants to look like a lady
But nobody wants to be one
Track Name: Dog Person
I’m not a dog person
But in time you could make me one
You could convince me of anything in time
Can’t form my own opinions
So I’ll just be your minion
Life is so much easier this way

I’d change any part of myself to be like you
Anything you say you love I’ll say that I love too
I’m not a stalker, see
You’re just made for me
And you’ll make a dog person of me, my dear

I don’t like gambling
But for you I’d bet everything
I’d go broke before I told you no
I am afraid of knives
But if you asked I’d juggle five
And as my arms gushed blood I would just grin

I’d change any part of myself to be like you
Anything you say you love I’ll say that I love too
La, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la
And you’ll make a dog person of me, my dear

I’d change any part of myself to be like you
Anything you say you love I’ll say that I love too
Alas, you’re all wrong for me
So you’ll never see
The dog person you’d make of me, my dear
Track Name: Suck An Egg
All of you people can suck an egg
All of you people can suck an egg
I don’t give a damn what you think about me

I worked so hard for you
But you treat me like gum on your shoe
Now that I’m free
Not a penny from me will you get

All of you people can suck an egg
All of you people can suck an egg
I don’t give a damn what you think about me

All you wanted was cold hard cash
I hope you get an unpleasant rash
That spreads to your face
Makes your outsides as ugly as in

All of you people can suck an egg
All of you people can suck an egg
I don’t give a damn what you think about me
Track Name: Rock Star
I am a rock star
I don’t have much to say
But when I come to sing my song
You best get out the way

I am a rock star
My outfits burn the eyes
I'm lord of dazzle, god of glam
And a master of disguise

I am a rock star
I feed on children's souls
I corrupt their minds and crush their hearts
Into the devil's mould

I am a rock star
My songs make babies cry
So bow down to me, kowtow to me
Or else prepare to die

I am a rock star
My charisma knows no bounds
I can make you stand with a wave of my hand
And you know I get around

I am a rock star
Yeah, danger's just a game
Death may harm my body
But not my immortal name
Track Name: A Strong Word
I wake up every morning
And I look up at the sun
And I think about
How much I want to shoot it down
With a big-ass machine gun

I hate the sunlight
I hate the rain
I hate all weather
You know it drives me insane
I hate the moonlight
I hate the stars
I hate Uranus, Neptune
Jupiter and Mars
I hate polka dots
I hate plaid
I hate stars and stripes
Because you know they make me really mad
I hate cookies
I hate pie
I hate cake and fudge and ice cream
‘Cause they make me want to die

Hating everything
Is no way to live
You got to find a balance
Your heart can’t be a sieve
So try to love a little
Each and every day
You know love conquers all, my friend
Love will find a way

I hate punk rock
I hate the blues
I hate jazz and ska and hip-hop
They all make me crave the booze
I hate pancakes
And scrambled eggs
If you feed me shredded wheat
Then I will chop off my own legs

I hate butterflies
And bumblebees
Little birds and flowers
Ladybugs and trees
I hate parties
I hate my friends
I hate fun of any kind
Because it makes me want to end my—

Life goes by so quickly
You got to drink it in
Try to let out all your hate
And then love will begin
To grow just like a flower
Deep inside your heart
Give a bloom to everyone
And your new life will start

Bite me!
Track Name: Blister On My Toe
I was walking down the street
I was walking to a funky beat
I was grooving to the bass
I had a contemplative look on my face

I was walking down the street
Shaking my booty, stomping my feet
But I think, I think I was walking
A little too enthusiastically

Got a blister on my toe
I got a blister on my toe
My new shoes
Gave me a bruise
And now I have a blister on my toe

I was walking through the mall
My new stilettos made me look tall
I was shopping for cute stuff
Because a girl can never have enough

I was strutting through that mall
To sounds of whistles and cat calls
But I think, I think I was walking
With a little too much gall

I got a blister on my toe
I got a blister on my toe
My new shoes
Gave me a bruise
And now I have a blister on my toe

Blister on my toe (x8)
Track Name: It's Over
There’s a feeling that you feel
When you’re feeling free
Of all the burdens in your life and the agony
The things that yesterday were bringing you down
Are gone tonight
They won’t come around
Anymore
Anymore
Anymore
Anymore

Man in the moon
Smiling, smiling
Stars in the sky
Twinkling, twinkling
The open air calls to you
You know just what to do
Run, sucker, run, sucker, run, sucker, run, ‘cause

Ooh, it’s over
Now on with the show
Just get up and go
Ooh, it’s over
Make your escape and choose your fate

There’s a feeling you get
When your plans are set
And the worst is over
And the best is yet
To come, you want some of that, some of that
Well, go get you some of that, some of that
Don’t be shy
Time will fly
My oh my

All of your friends
Smiling, smiling
Fruits of success
Ripening, ripening
The game of life calls to you
You know just what to do
Play, sucker, play, sucker, play, sucker, play, ‘cause

Ooh, it’s over
Now on with the show
Just get up and go
Ooh, it’s over
Make your escape and choose your fate

There’s a feeling you feel
When the race is won
And you’ve made your mark
And you’ve had your fun
Now that it’s all said and done
I’ve got a few words for you, son
Don’t stop
Don’t stop
Don’t stop
You’re a loaded gun

Ooh, it’s over
Now on with the show
Just get up and go
Ooh, it’s over
Make your escape and choose your—
Ooh, it’s over
Now on with the show
Just get up and go
Ooh, it’s over
Make your escape and choose your fate
Track Name: Star-Nosed Pete (Bonus Track)
Underground
Beneath your feet
Down there lives a little mole
Whose name is Star-Nosed Pete

Does he hear you? No
Does he see you? No
He's a mole, that means that he's got quite a nose
He can smell you coming from miles away
So for Pete's sake, please wear some perfume today

School bells ring
Children yell
And that body odor stench
is surely worse than hell

Does he hear you? No
Does he see you? No
He's a mole that means that he's got quite a nose
He can smell you coming from miles away
So for Pete's sake, please wear some perfume today

Pete grew old
And finally he died
RIP, in loving memory
What a poor little guy

Does he hear you? No
Does he see you? No
Now he's died and gone to heaven, babe, don't ya know
Even though his body is long decayed
So for Pete's sake, please wear some perfume today

He's a sensitive mole (x4)
