Just wondered if anyone has the lyrics for Chris Wood's 'Out come the freaks'(chords would be helpful but sure I can figure it out).
Cant seem to find them anywhere. It was on Acoustic Folkbox - disc 4.

Starts (I think):
"Little Michael on his motorcycle, leather pants and a leather brian he has never been the same since Vietnam."

Cheers
Becks

Thank you Hamish!!! Good to know the background of a song.

Just looked it up and the words are very different. Think I am going to sit and listen to Chris Wood's version and write them down with my finger on the pause button.
Just listened to it too and its very different! Infact its horrible, lol!

(RETURN TO THE VALLEY OF) OUT COME THE FREAKS
Don Was

Eddie Harold used a tape recorder
When he had one of his girlfriends over.
He didn't want to miss a single scream.
His friends all laughed when he played it later.
You had to wonder, did he really hate her?
Girls always made him nervous, that's to blame;
And makin' love was just a crazy game.
The woodwork squeaks and out come the freaks.

In her apartment was a plastic altar.
She'd light a candle when her courage faltered.
Sometimes the world got a little hard to bear.
It wasn't easy living in the city.
She wasn't clever and she wasn't pretty.
She chanted in the night but no one cared.
The woodwork squeaks and out come the freaks.

Freddie's wife became a topless dancer;
Had bondage parties with a Turkish bouncer.
She's been evicted. the police have got her car.
She tried to sell an antique shotgun.
She said she knows some crazy guy who wants one.
Her parents said, "You're not our daughter. You're a whore.
It's over, and you don't live here anymore."
The woodwork squeaks and out come the freaks.

The woodwork squeaks and out come the freaks.
The woodwork squeaks and "Strangers In The Night"
The woodwork squeaks and "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag"
The woodwork squeaks and "The Shadow Of Your Smile"
The woodwork squeaks and "Take The Last Train To Clarksville"
The woodwork squeaks and out come the freaks.


[Recorded by Was (Not Was) on "Born to Laugh at Tornadoes," 1983. I think several versions of this have been recorded, even by Was (Not Was). Some of them are disco remixes.]
