Lyrics

I was at this carnival, just a few years ago
No big deal, ferris wheel, the same ol' stuff you know
And I wandered around the grounds until I found this little tent
- man outside made a speech, and this is how it went
"she walks, she talks
She crawls on her belly like a reptile"
It was the same ole line ...except for one part
Said you don't need no money, you gotta pay with your heart
O sharon, what do you do to these men?
You know the same rowdy crowd that was here last night is back again
Well I went inside, looked around for a seat
Then the lights went low, and the drums played a beat
Out came this girl, dressed in a scarf and a sneeze
She did a little dance that made me weak in the knees
She danced just like her back had no bones
While the band played a tune they called the Main Street Moan
She smiled a smile the whole world could see
And then She turned around, and looked staraight at me
I must've jumped at least six feet in the air
And when I came down, that girl wasn't there
Oh Sharon, what do you do to these men?
You know the same rowdy crowd that was here last night is back again
Then Out come this guy with curly, red hair
He had a big bushy beard , and he looked like a bear
He said "Yuh stop yer shoutin' there's no more to the show
If you wanna breathe right, I think y'all better go
Well I didn't think twice, I headed straight for the door
But on my way out, I heard that big bear roar
O Sharon, what do you do to these men?
You know the same rowdy crowd that was here last night is back again
Every time that show played, I was right there
I stayed out off reach of that mean ole' bear
And it was Just like the man said in his speech at the start
When that carnie left town it took a piece of my heart
I still get a funny feeling deep down in my bone
Every time I hear a band play that Main Street Moan
O Sharon, what do you do to these men?
You know the same rowdy crowd that was here last night is back again
O Sharon, what do you do to these me?
You know the same rowdy crowd that was here last night is back again
