Abney Park – Come One Come All Lyrics

[Verse 1]
He had a machine all rusty and lean
That walked on four legs by the tracks
Carried its home wherever he roamed
Kitchen, bathroom, small room on its back

He reached a town it would zip the house down
A man would hang up a large banner
[?] stand, and with metaphor in hand
Through it started to stammer

[Chorus]
Come one come all to enter my hall
Two pennies and a sugar, my freak
It doesn't be there, but it's covered in hair
The strangest thing you've seen all week

[Verse 2]
A small crowd shuffled in
Filled house with their kin
Looked timidly at the large box
[?] the lid
Huge body was hid
And chained to the floor with huge locks
The man opened the coffin
The screams they do often
As the smell of the body fell a foul
Eight good legs were there

All covered in hair
Ate palms in the head of an owl
[Chorus]
Come one come all to enter my hall
Two pennies and a sugar, my freak
It doesn't be there, but it's covered in hair
The strangest thing you've seen all week

[Verse 3]
This was the beast that I loved the least
Made it through nightmare in the canyon
So I took seven cracks with this goat on my back
And took out my loathsome companion
Though I beg he's a liar these events did transpire
Exactly as he had said prior
For the truth is that beast was soon together deceased
From this whole town's a Capella choir

[Chorus]
Come one come all to enter my hall
Two pennies and a sugar, my freak
It doesn't be there, but it's covered in hair
The strangest thing you've seen all week
