Live version (1973)

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
The greatest show in heaven hell or earth
You've got to see the show
It's a dynamo
You've got to see the show
It's rock and roll

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

Carl Palmer on the drums

Soon the gypsy queen in a glaze of vaseline
Will perform on guillotine
What a scene
What a scene
Next upon 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 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

See the show
