All versions

Welcome back, my friends
To the show that never ends
We're so glad you could attend
Come inside, come inside

There behind the glass
Is a real blade of grass
Be careful as you pass
Move along, move along

Come inside, the show's about to start
Guaranteed to blow your head apart
Rest assured, you'll get your money's worth
Greatest show in Heaven, Hell or Earth

You gotta see the show
It's a dynamo
You gotta see the show
It's rock and roll

Oh right before your eyes
We pull laughter from the skies
And he laughs until he cries
Then he dies, then he dies

Come inside, the show's about to start
Guaranteed to blow your head apart

You gotta see the show
It's a dynamo
You gotta see the show
It's rock and roll
Oh

Soon the gypsy queen
In a glaze of Vaseline
Will perform on guillotine
What a scene, what a scene

Next up on the stand
Will you please extend a hand
To Alexander's ragtime band
Dixieland, Dixieland

Roll up
Roll up
Roll up
See the show

Performing on a stool
We've a sight to make you drool
Seven virgins and a mule
Keep it cool, keep it cool

We would like it to be known
The exhibits at the show
Were exclusively our own
All our own, all our own

Come and see the show
Come and see the show
Come and see the show

See the show

Welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends
Ladies and gentlemen: Emerson, Lake and Palmer!

Welcome back, my friends
To the show that never ends
We're so glad you could attend
Come inside, come inside

There behind the glass
Stands a real blade of grass
Careful as you pass
Move along, move along

Come inside, the show's about to start
Guaranteed to blow your head apart
Rest assured, you get your money's worth
Greatest show in Heaven, Hell or Earth

Gotta see the show
It's a dynamo
Gotta see the show
It's rock and roll

Right before your eyes
We pull laughter from the skies
Laughs 'till he cries
Then he dies, then he dies

Come inside, show's about to start
Guaranteed to blow your head apart

Gotta see the show
It's a dynamo
Gotta see the show
It's rock and roll

Soon the gypsy queen
In a glaze of Vaseline
Will perform on guillotine
What a scene, what a scene

Next up on the stand
Will you please extend a hand
To Alexander's ragtime band
Dixieland, Dixieland

Roll up
Roll up
Roll up
See the show

Performing on a stool
We've a sight to make you drool
Seven virgins and a mule
Keep it cool, keep it cool

We'd like it to be known
The exhibits that were shown
Were exclusively our own
All our own, all our own

Come and see the show
Come and see the show
Come and see the show
