Come one, come all! The time to change your minds is at hand
Approach the stall! Everything you knew was a lie in hand
Can't you see? The truth may be hard to believe?
But just trust me, I am on you side!

Oh gather round! Come see the man that suffers from his ailments
His agony may cause you to turn away from his torment
Can't you see? Though it may not be your cup of tea
Will you help or will you leave him be?

Oh woe are we! That will not actively seek help for the weak
Oh Mercy me! Mercy me! Mercy we!

Step right up! Leave your worries and burdens at the door
Please pass the cup! We only ask a dollar, not a cent more
Can't you see? Some money will ensure that your sympathies will travel
That's all we need so be on your way

Oh ladies and gents! Inside, you'll see things that you'll never forget
Such awful acts, the likes of which no decent human could digest
Won't you see? Come in, and gander for a nominal fee
We'll show all for just a buck fifty!

Oh woe is he! Who will not prove he's man enough to go see
Oh Mercy me! Mercy me! Mercy we!

Come one, come all! Approach the stall!
Can't you see you should just trust me?
Oh gather round, don't be down!
Will you help or will you leave us be?
Step right up! Pass the cup!
Sympathy isn't all we need
Ladies and gents, such great acts
Won't you see for a buck fifty

Oh woe is he! Who will not give to us that which we seek
Oh Mercy me! Mercy me! Mercy we!
