​Ferris Wheels and Freakshows

This song is by Grey DeLisle and appears on the album Homewrecker (2002) and on the live album Bootlegger, Vol. 1 (2003).

Well, I don't know a lot of great big college words
To tell you how I feel
But I borrowed Bob's truck and saved up my tips for three weeks
To ride your ring of steel
And you may not believe me
But that ain't nothing new
It's been ferris wheels and freakshows
Since I met you

Well, you're drowning in that polyester vest
And plastic yellow shoes
And I shoved nineteen years of nerve into this dress
And I'm only twenty two
You might think I'm crazy
Depends on who you've been talking to
It's been ferris wheels and freakshows
Since I met you

That fat lady died here
At last summer's midnight show
She didn't get to hold nobody close
Before she goes
So let that be a lesson
To freaks like you and me
Letting carnies rob us
Of our carnal gluttony

Dr Pepper lip gloss sweet love's baby soft
My lucky rhinestone ring
Forget the zipper, tear this ticket off
And show me everything
Go on, say I'm easy
Make the rumors all come true
It's been ferris wheels and freakshows
It's been ferris wheels and freakshows
It's been ferris wheels anf freakshows
Since I met you
