"Fairground Attraction" as written by and Mark Edward Cascian Nevin....
Children with candyfloss
And prizes of goldfish
Young men kill tin ducks
In sharp shooter poses
The laughter of the lovers
On the rickety stairs
The rumble of the diesel
And the sounds of the fair

An old gypsy lady
In soft Spanish whispers
Took my hands in hers
And told me their secrets
Your heart is a fire
And his love is an ember
You must forget
What you'll always remember

Superstitious nonsense
Just a fairground attraction
I walked through the neons
In search of distraction
But the tears in my eyes
Knew the truth in my heart
She'd only confirmed
What I knew at the start

Oh-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah

    Lyric CorrectionChildren with candyfloss and prizes of goldfish.
    Young men kill tin ducks in sharp shooter poses.
    The laughter of the lovers on the rickety stairs.
    The rumble of the diesel and the sounds of the fair.

    An old gypsy lady, in soft Spanish whispers
    Took my hands in hers and told me their secrets
    "Your heart is a fire and his love is an ember
    You must forget what you�ll always remember."

    Superstitious nonsense, just a fairground attraction
    I walked through the neons, in search of distraction
    But the tears in my eyes knew the truth in my heart
    She'd only confirmed what I knew at the start

    oh-ah-ah-ah
