Wear your hat like a renegade
Hold your pride like the sharpest razorblade
Beg for love
But you never give your heart fully away

Hustling around's a way to get attention
Prostitution's good to achieve ambition
Such an elegant tramp and loving crook
Can make you pay

Please do that cartwheel you do for us
You know it takes more than just a skillful lamb
To tame the wolves

Boisterous dandy dismissing all the clones
Neither Prokofiev nor David Jones
Could have pictured that such a tell-tale heart
Could speak the truth

Please do that cartwheel for us again
You'll soon get to walk on your hands,
A skillful lamb won't tame the wolves

Let me tell you the story of a lamb
Oddly, leading the wolfpack was his aim
Oddly, leading the wolfpack was his dream

Call yourself Arthur
Wish you were adored
Dress up like a king
Make up like a whore
Make up your whole life
As a three-ring Barnum stage

Please do that cartwheel you do for us
You know it takes more than just a skillful lamb
To tame
Please do that cartwheel for us again
You'll soon get to walk on your hands,
A skillful lamb
You know it takes more than just a lamb
It takes more than a delicate clown
To tame the wolves.

A delicate clown or a skillful lamb...
