lyrics

This is the Night When the Freaks Come Out


This is the Night When the Freaks Come Out,
When the freaks come out, when the freaks come out! [clap clap]
This is the night when the freaks come out,
To share their tales of woe!

There's Hemo Hank, and Heartbreak Hanna,
Who found themselves a love that couldn't last.
And the Siamese twins, in love with the same man...
How's that story end? So glad you asked!

This is the Night When the Freaks Come Out,
When the freaks come out, when the freaks come out! [clap clap]
This is the night when the freaks come out,
To share their tales of woe!

The midget and the lady, with the beard upon her face,
Have a tragic, tragic of sapphic lust.
We can see you've taken interest in our freaky little lives,
Perhaps now you can see... you're one of us!?

Now Dance!!!
[dance break]

This is the Night When the Freaks Come Out,
When the freaks come out, when the freaks come out! [clap clap]
This is the night when the freaks come out,
To share their tale of woe...

How low can you go?
