Step right up
We bring to you the finest entertainment
And I am pleased to be your humble servant
Accept our hospitality
Indulge in abnormality
Step right up
We've something here for everyone's enjoyment
I do this as a gift, not for employment
A portrait of insanity
Approached with pure humanity

Come... See... Our girls!
Crazy girls!
If you're willing to be thrilled, this is a hell of a ride
Those girls!
Crazy girls!
They're hot - they're nuts - they're suicidal!
Tickets cheap
It's a crime
And they're half off after 4 o'clock
So toss us a dime
To see these lovely freaks of nature
For a limited time
Come see the girls, girls, girls!

Some of them are really quite attractive as you'll see
But some are truly hideous - I'm sure that you'll agree
While others still look rather quite a lot like you and me
But you mustn't let them fool you
Just one more rule:
You shouldn't look this one too long in the eye
That one - let's just keep walking by
'Cause they're no ordinary girls,
And we've a steady supply
So grab another cup of tea
And follow me

To see the girls!
Crazy girls!
If you're willing to be thrilled, this is a hell of a ride
Those girls!
Crazy girls!
They're hots - they're nuts - they're suicidal!
Tickets cheap
It's a crime
And they're half off after 4 o'clock
So toss us a dime
To see these lovely freaks of nature
For a limited time
Come see the girls, girls, girls!

EA: "Now, has anybody any clever questions for your guide?
For a penny more, go on and ask, we've nothing here to hide"

Everybody: "I! I! I would like to!" etc.

EA: "Quiet down! You, sir"

Contessa: "If insanity's primarily a feminish malady - and no one's doubting that, for it's a scientific fact! - then according to the medics, have they faultier genetics?
Are they born with this disease or is it something they contract?!"

It's all to do with reproductive organs
Which are naturally unstable in a dame
You see, from lunar
We have lunatic, and lunacy, and loony
And they're always ovulating by the cycle of the moony

Maggots: "I have a question!"

EA: "Shoot!"

Maggots: "Has any patient ever been released?
Woudld you send her home if her bizarre behavior were decreased?"

For the good of our society, they aren't to reproduce
So while they may pretend propriety
We'll never let them loose!

To see the girls!
Crazy girls!
If you're willing to be thrilled, this is a hell of a ride
Those girls!
Crazy girls!
They're hots - they're nuts - they're suicidal!
Tickets cheap
It's a crime
And they're half off after 4 o'clock
So toss us a dime
To see these lovely freaks of nature
For a limited time
Come see the girls, girls, girls!

EA: "Some are born mad - some achieve madness - some have madness thrust upon them!
This is the real thing, my friends: 100% authentic mentally ill!
Accept no substitutions

For a little extra on the side we can arrange for a slightly more intimate encounter, wink wink
For a tuppence - just a tuppence!
A handful pills to feed the inmates

We've got pills for:
Agression
Opression
Depression
Manic depression
But there's a pill for everything these days!"

VeVa: "How big is a lady's brain?"

EA: "It's really very, very small
A simple thought is quite a strain"

Maggots: "It seems just a bit inhumane"

EA: "It's just a simple little shock
It doesn't cause her any pain" *bzzt*"

They're really more like animals than people
Which haven't proven to have any souls at all
The only bits that aren't inferior
Are bosom and posterior
And these are only useful in a seedy music hall

They won't bite!
Well, she might...
I say, this one does look hungry tonight!
So get your picture with an inmate
But be sure she's locked up tight
They're practically wild, sir
Protect your child, sir

They can't recall the taste of freedom
They're just happy that we feed them
So point and laugh, it isn't bad!
They ought not mind
Because they're mad
If you haven't got a dime
Toss us your pearls!

You're welcome to enjoy our
Girls!
Crazy girls
If you're willing to be thrilled, this is a hell of a ride
Those girls!
Crazy girls!
We're hot! - They're hot
We're nuts! - They're nuts
They're suicidal!
Tickets cheap
It's a crime
And they're half price after 4 o'clock
So toss us a dime
To see these lovely freaks of nature
For a limited time

I've got a lot more words to say
But I just can't make them rhyme
So ladies, let this be a lesson to you
Keep your hair uncut
Your corsets tight
Your morals high
Your knitting neat
Your yappers shut!

This is what comes of over-educating
Mentally over-stimulating
Too much serious conversating
Organised religion hating
Sinful over-copulating
Marriage without procreating
Girl on girl caught lesbiating
She was caught while masturbating!

Male mind manipulating
Chronically hallucinating
Certainly there's no debating
Some we just find fascinating
Women's right facilitating
Independent thought creating
She may just be complicating
Get your money out, we're waiting!

To see those girls! Girls! Girls!

    General Comment:Oh shit, I accidentally wrote "humbled" instead of "humble".
    Anyway, this has got to be one of the funniest, most epic songs on earth. Especially with Maggots "masturbating" on stage.

    My Interpretation:Continuing with my analysis/ my take on the 'Story of FLAG' the proprietors of the Asylum use the girls mental illnesses to attract an audience to humiliate and profit from the girls condition, instead of trying to help them.

    The men who ask questions also give a small (biased) view on how mental disorders were viewed in the past.

    Outside of the story, this song is a powerful satirical take on medication, women's rights and society itself:

    "If insanity's primarily a feminish malady - and no one's doubting that, for it's a scientific fact!" The quickness of society to support paradigms in modern society.

    "We've got pills for:
    Agression
    Opression
    Depression
    Manic depression
    But there's a pill for everything these days!"
    Another take on the heavily reliance of medication in today's society, less serious than, "Take The Pill"

    "They're really more like animals than people
    Which haven't proven to have any souls at all
    The only bits that aren't inferior
    Are bosom and posterior
    And these are only useful in a seedy music hall"

    This bit bashes religion and the objectification of women.

    Finally the last bit, from "I've got a lot more words to say..." to the end of the song, is a bash on just about everything relating to women: from women's rights to science to religion to sexuality.

    There's so much more to say about this song, and the message it portrays, but Ill stop here.

    General Comment:There's actually a Shakespeare reference in here.

    "Some are born mad, some achieve madness, and some have madness thrust upon them!

    "Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them!" - Marvolio/Maria from Twelfth Night.

    Just thought I'd add that.

    General Comment:A hilariously and blatantly sarcastic song, which suggests that Emilie has sang this to a very sexist person who thinks of women as crazy wierdos. "They're really more like animals than people" suggests my point earlier.

    General Comment:One time I was singing this and I got to the part where she was naming all the pills and my mum was like,
    "Well, number one, we don't use tuppence, and number two, I don't want any pills except Claritin D. Thank you."
    My mum is awesome.
