​The Freak

This song is by Zoot and appears on the album Zoot Locker : The Best Of The Zoot, 1968-1971 (1995).

(Rick Springfield)

Step inside the tent ladies and gentlemen
And see the freak they call 'Jojo The Dog Face'
He walks like a man
He talks like a man
Yet he was born with the face of a dog
An actual living freak of nature

Bright lights
Blind me
And I'm whisking by the people
Pushing, rushing
To the organ grinder's music

And my eyes are running
And my legs are aching
And there's people winning
And the carnival's spinning

Merry - go round
Go round and they make me dizzy
People - shouting
As they shoot and win an ashtray

And my head is breakin'
And my ears are splitting
And my hair is thinning
And the carnival's spinning

After the people have gone
I walk alone down sideshow alley
And from a tent I hear some crying
The sound of someone in pain

And written brightly on the canvas and woodwork
So that everybody would see
Was the question they pose to the public
"When is a man not a man
When he's a freak in a sideshow"

But we've all got to cry
Yes we all got to cry
And we've all got to cry

Bright lights
Blind me
And I'm whisking by the people
Pushing - rushing
To the organ grinder's music

And my eyes are running
And my legs are achy
And there's people crying
And the carnival's dying
