lyrics

Roll up, roll up, see the idiots of our age
Watch them caper, hear them scream
Feel their fearful rage
For a penny, you can poke these feeble with a stick
And for a shilling we will make them
For you perform a trick

Souls in pain
Minds insane
Melancholy and Mania
In silent stone above the door
For once you pass their faces cold
Bedlam your home for evermore

Come see, come see
And take some sound advice
A cautionary tale, a warning
Against immorality and vice
A moral example, if your passions run too free
The frisson of the freak show

Move on, move on, enter this school of misery
Walk inoffensive madmen along the gallery
As you reach the second floor
Those rows of cells they hold
More dangerous maniacs we have
Terrible to behold

Hear now hear now to the story of a rake
He was left a fortune
Much more than he could take
Then spends it all on finery
With girls and hangers-on
Even employs musicians

Beware, beware, for our Tom, he liked to bet
Takes to heart no sound advice
So soon he is in debt
He ends up here in Bedlam's care
Sent mad in debtors gaol
Violent and insane, mind is rent and broken
