We Gotta Show


Lyrics:
CARNIE 8
WE GOTTA SHOW TO PUT ON TONIGHT
LET THE CEILING FLY AWAY
WE GOTTA SHOW TO PUT ON TONIGHT
BRING IN THE AUDIENCE AND WATCH THEM….PLAY

TAKE IN THE SPECTACLE OF THE MAKEUP N MASK TONIGHT
BEWARE YOU FOOLS WHO DARE A MASK ‘CAUSE SOME CAN/MAY GET TOO TIGHT.

WE GOTTA SHOW TO PUT ON TONIGHT
FOR THOSE WHO COME FROM
BEYOND THE CARNIVAL LIGHTS

CARNIE 2
CRICKET, THERE YOU ARE.
WHERE YA BEEN ALL THIS TIME?
GET OUT THERE
WE HAVE SO MUCH TO DO-

CARNIE 1
DAMMIT, WATCH YOUR STEP
WE’LL BE OPENING SOON
WHAT THE HELL?
BEEN LOOKING FOR YOU

CRICKET
HOW WILL YOU COPE ONCE I GET OUT OF HERE

CARNIE 3
SPINNING THE SAME YARN NOW YEAR AFTER YEAR.

CARNIE 1
There’s nothing beyond the carnival lights but sorrow and pain. You don’t see us fighting to get out there

CARNIE 2
But you sure see them trying to get in here.

CARNIES
WE GOTTA SHOW TO PUT ON TONIGHT
GRANTING FOOLS THEIR FANTASIES
WE GOTTA SHOW TO PUT ON TONIGHT
INSIDE THE CARNIVAL LIFE IS A BREEZE

YOU MAKE LOVE AND LOSE IT, YOU MAKE CASH AND SPEND IT
HAPPINESS IS ON THE HOUR AND WE RECOMMEND IT

CAUSE WE GOTTA SHOW TO PUT ON TONIGHT
FOR THOSE WHO COME FROM
BEYOND THE CARNIVAL LIGHTS

CARNIE 1
GO THEN
GET OUTTA HERE
THE WORLD IS BEGGING FOR YOU

CARNIES
THOUGH WHEN
YOUR PATH IS CLEAR
YOU KEEP (ON) CRAWLING RIGHT BACK
YOU ALWAYS DO——–

CAUSE WE GOTTA SHOW TO PUT ON TONIGHT
FULL OF SURPRISES, FRIGHTS AND CHILLS
WE GOTTA SHOW TO PUT ON TONIGHT
FOR NO OTHER REASON BUT TO PAY BILLS

FORGET REALITY AND LEAVE COMMON SENSE AT THE DOOR
ECSTASY IS LOST TO SOME THAT’S WHAT WE’RE HERE FOR!

CAUSE WE GOTTA SHOW TO PUT ON TONIGHT
FOR THOSE WHO COME FROM
BEYOND THE CARNIVAL LIGHTS
