"Cirque Dans La Rue" as written by Tom Higgenson and Martin Edward Dodson....
Take me to the big show
Take me anywhere but here
Put me in the front row,
Make my problems disappear

Drag these high wires,
Without a safety net
For the present admission,
I wanna witness life or death

All the pretty girls get cut in half
While the sad clowns make us laugh

I wanna make friends with the friends with the freaks,
I wanna throw it down with the clowns that I meet,
I wanna have a party in the middle of the street
I wanna have a party in the middle of the street
I wanna have a party in the middle of the street

Invite all the carnies
And the crazy acrobats
And bearded ladies
And the fire breathers
All the people
Just like me.

Are you ready to risk it all,
And be a human cannon ball?
Sharpen up those knives and throw 'em,
At the fool against the wall,
We're all against that wall

I wanna make friends with the friends with the freaks,
I wanna throw it down with the clowns that I meet,
I wanna have a party in the middle of the street
I wanna have a party in the middle of the street
I wanna have a party in the middle of the street

Invite all the carnies
And the crazy acrobats
And bearded ladies
And the fire breathers
All the people
Just like me.

Ladies and Gentlemen,
Boys and girls,
Come one, come all
To the Cirque dans la rue!
Check your troubles at the door,
You don't need em anymore!
Leave reality outside,
And come along for the ride,
But just remember
While you're watching us,
Do the things that we do!

We're watching you

All the pretty girls get cut in half
While the sad clowns make us laugh.
All the pretty girls get cut in half
While the sad clowns make us laugh.

I wanna make friends with the friends with the freaks,
I wanna throw it down with the clowns that I meet,
I wanna have a party in the middle of the street
I wanna have a party in the middle of the street
I wanna have a party in the middle of the street

Invite all the carnies
And the crazy acrobats
And bearded ladies
And the fire breathers
All the people
Just like me

Just like me.

I wanna have a party in the middle of the street
I wanna have a party in the middle of the street
I wanna have a party in the middle of the street

Invite all the carnies
And the crazy acrobats
And bearded ladies
And the fire breathers
All the people
Just like me.

All the pretty girls get cut in half
While the sad clowns make us laugh.

    Lyric CorrectionTake me to the big show,
    Take me anywhere but here
    Put me in the front row
    Make my problems disappear

    Trapeze high wire
    Without a safety net
    For the price of admission
    I wanna witness life or death

    All the pretty girls get cut in half,
    While the sad clowns make us laugh.

    I wanna make friends with the freaks,
    I wanna throw it down with the clowns that I meet
    I wanna have a party in the middle of the street
    I wanna have a party in the middle of the street

    I wanna have a party in the middle of the street
    Invite all the carnies and the crazy acrobats and bearded ladies and the fire breathers
    All the people just like me

    Are you ready to risk it all
    And be a human cannon ball?
    Sharpen up those knives and throw
    'Em at the fool against the wall.
    We're all against that wall.

    I want to make friends with the freaks
    I want to throw it down with the clowns that I meet
    I wanna have a party in the middle of the street

    I wanna have a party in the middle of the street
    I wanna have a party in the middle of the street
    Invite all the carnies and the crazy acrobats and bearded ladies and the fire breathers
    All the people just like me

    General CommentIt sounds like some sort of parody on life.

    Trapeze high wire
    Without a safety net
    For the price of admission
    I wanna witness life or death

    It's kind of sadistic....

    All the pretty girls get cut in half,
    While the sad clowns make us laugh
    All the pretty girls get cut in half,
    While the sad clowns make us laugh

    It's about not caring what other people think

    want to make friends with the freaks
    I want to throw it down with the clowns that I meet
    I wanna have a party in the middle of the street


    It's about embracing the wild, crazy side, loving adrenaline and the way our society is messed up, if you ask me.

    And the gravely "we're watching you" made me laugh.

    General CommentI think the guy thinks hes a nobody and fits in with the carnies, like in

    "I wanna have a party in the middle of the street
    Invite all the carnies and the crazy acrobats
    and bearded ladies and the fire breathers all the people
    just like me"

    And then when he says

    "Check your troubles at the door,
    You don't need them anymore!
    Leave reality outside,
    And come along for the ride."

    I think he is saying to forget your problems and start over in life, be different.

    And FYI Cirque Dans La Rue means Circus on the Street.


    BTW LOL at "We're Watching You"
