Track Name: Temptation
Steppin off the subway train
Early in july
I was walkin down the platform yeah
When something caught my eye
A hunchback in the tunnel waved
Offered me a drink
I drank that strange blue liquid
In a blink

I don't know what's goin on
Temptation gets me every time
I don't know what's goin on
Temptation gets me every time

I woke up in the morning
And I looked up in the sky
I saw a flying saucer and
It landed right nearby
This girl from space came flying out
Right up to my side
She said come on
Do you wanna take a ride

I don't know what's goin on
Temptation gets me every time
I don't know what's goin on
Temptation gets me every time

Break

I don't know what's goin on
Temptation gets me every time
I don't know what's goin on
Temptation gets me every time
Track Name: You Don't Want Me
I've given you everything that I have 
But you're just asking for more
And every time I think I'm getting close
You just walk out that door
Now I can't see no other help for me
I'm goin outta my mind
Now babe you know exactly what I need
So stop wastin my time...

I tried so hard but you don't want me!
I cried so hard cause you don't want me!

You been bad, you been treatin me mean
What am I gonna do
I've been blind but now I see
That I been such a fool

I tried so hard but you don't want me!
I cried so hard cause you don't want me!

Break

I've been used and I been abused
You been treatin me bad from day one
You'd cut out my heart and squash it to the ground
Just to have some fun

I tried so hard but you don't want me!
I cried so hard cause you don't want me!
Track Name: The Sideshow
The elephant man is looking mighty weird
And he's dating the lady with a full grown beard
Pinhead's speaking a bizarre jive
And the leopard man would like to eat you alive
Monkey boy's forehead is really low
It's the Sideshow

Crocodile man don't need no shoes
He's got the looking-like-a-shoe-all-over blues
The double jointed woman's looking really strange
The way she is able to re-arrange
Now the circus midgets will never grow
It's the Sideshow

Break

Monkey boy likes to rock'n'roll
And the maggot man does the fishin' pole
The siamese twins do a crazy hop
While the sideshow band play a grinding slop
It's for you to guess and for us to know
We're the Sideshow
Track Name: Now I Have To Go
Yeah you know I wanted you all the time
Yeah you know I had you on my mind
Well I thought this was always gonna be
Then I heard that you were a-foolin' me

I thought that you loved me
But now I know
You were only foolin' me
And now I have to go
Now I have to go
Now I have to go

Well I thought you were always gonna be true
But now I know I shouldn't have trusted you
Well I thought you were always gonna be mine
But now I know - it was a waste of time!

I thought that you loved me
But now I know
You were only foolin' me
And now I have to go
Now I have to go
Now I have to go
Track Name: It's Not Me, It's You
I used to run around
Like crazy in the streets
Cursing at everyone I'd meet
You been driving me insane
You been tearing at my brain
Never thought I'd get back on my feet
But I've opened my eyes
Yeah I've seen through your lies

Now you know
When you go
I got nothing else to say
Except close the door
On your way!

You told everyone that before we met
I only had records with Sting
You been spreading around that I'm lousy in bed
And just about as smart as The Thing
Well I caught you red handed
And I'm not gonna stand it

'Cause you know
When you go
I got nothing else to say
Except, close the door
On your way!

Break

Shut up that piehole oh yeah
- now ya close that lying lip
I can happily say that I'm finally
- out of your grip

'Cause you know
When you go
I got nothing else to say
Except, close the door
On your way!
Yeah you know
When you go
I got nothing else to say
Except, close the door
On your way!
Track Name: Til The End Of Time
Lemme tell you a story
It's about a friend of mine
He met himself a woman
Out walkin late at night
Suddenly she stood there
Yeah she made him all uptight
She said honey take it easy
And just look into my eyes
Come on over to my place and you'll see
Everything'll be alright

Because youre gonna be mine
Ah yeah you're gonna be mine
You're gonna be mine - til the end of time
Oh yeah you're gonna be mine

He started sleeping through the days
Began to roam around at night
He had to satisfy a hunger
Always looking for a bite
Then he met this little girl
When the moon was shining bright
But he said honey take it easy
And just look into my eyes
Yeah baby come on over
And everything'll be alright

Because youre gonna be mine
Ah yeah you're gonna be mine
You're gonna be mine - til the end of all time
Oh yeah you're gonna be mine

Now take it easy baby
Let it go without a strif
And I will show you the secret
Of eternal life...

Break

Oh yeah
You're gonna be mine
You're gonna be mine - til the end of all time
Oh yeah you're gonna be mine
Track Name: Make Me Fly
Walking down the avenue
I see so many faces
A thousand eyes are looking back
From all their different places
But none of them're reaching me
Cause babe you're all I see

Oh yeah, come on and satisfy
Come on now girl and make me fly

The world outside is on my back
Tryin to push me round
But I just act serene at that
Won’t let’em put me down
I'm doing what I wanna do
And I'll do it all with you

Oh yeah, come on and satisfy
Come on now girl and make me fly

Break

Oh yeah, come on and satisfy
You know, you're gettin me so high ...so
Come on now girl and make me fly
Track Name: King Of The Freaks
Deep inside the jungle
Lives a monkey man
A pre-historic creature
With unexpected plans
The bravest of'em all
With brain a size too small

He's the monkey man
King of the freaks
Evolution's plan's
just not for him
He'll just go
Uh! Ah! Ah!
Uh! Ah! Ah!

He wanted fame and fortune
He lusted after love
So he went into the village
From his mountain far above
Soon everyone and all
Could hear his mating call

He's the monkey man
King of the freaks
Evolution's plan's
just not for him
- hear him go
Uh! Ah! Ah!
Uh! Ah! Ah!

Break

He's a stranger 'mongst the livin’
A big and hairy man
With a mighty disposition
And a good year around tan

He's the monkey man
King of the freaks
Evolution's plan's
just not for him
He'll just go
Uh! Ah! Ah!
Uh! Ah! Ah!
He's the monkey man
King of the freaks
Evolution's plan's
just not for him
- hear him go
Uh! Ah! Ah!
Uh! Ah! Ah!
