  • I ain't got no fun today
    It's just like yesterday, oh yeah
    Only different shades of grey
    I'm bored right out of my skull
    I'd have to get high just to be dull
    I'm institutional
    My TV screen spins around and around
    And around and around

    (I need a sideshow)
    I need a sideshow
    (Some kinda creepshow)
    Some kinda creepshow (oh yeah)
    Ooh yeah
    They ran the circus out of town
    But the ring master said "Boy, you can
    stick around"

    I pay to see the freaks
    Some finger lickin' chicken-eating geek
    Hey, that sounds cool to me
    I just want to step inside
    I want a scary ride, oh yeah
    See Jeckyll turn to Hyde
    I feel my head spinnin' round and around
    And around and around

    (I need a sideshow)
    I need a sideshow, oh yeah
    (Some kinda creepshow)
    Some kinda creepshow, oh yeah
    (Sideshow)
    I just want someplace to go, oh yeah
    I tried to be the circus clown
    But even my monkey wouldn't hang around

    And the hunchback midget and his twisted friends
    Offer me a world of thrills that never end

    I need a sideshow, oh yeah
    Some kind of freaky show, oh yeah
    (Sideshow)
    Down where the neon glows
    Just like a psychedelic video
    Or a 24 hour party, go go go
    Not a 90210, no
    I need a sideshow
    I'm runnin' my private sideshow
