Lyrics
(Kinky Friedman)

I'm the star of Captain Midnite's travelin' show
Came to this circus many moons ago.
My mother's in your storybooks, she loved a jungle king,
Left me standin' here alone inside the center ring.

In a bamboo cage I crossed the ragin' sea,
A livin' page torn clean from history.
A hairy, scary, legendary screamin' souvenir,
Now don't you come too close to me, don't you come too near.

I'm the wild man from Borneo,
The wild man from Borneo.
You come to see what you wanna see,
Ah, you come to see but you never come to know.

The tattooed lady left the circus train
Lost all of her pictures in the rain.
I wonder if you're happy, I wonder if you're free
I wonder if you'll ever know the mark you left on me.

I'm the wild man from Borneo, The wild man.
You come to see what you wanna see,
Ah, you come to see but you never come to know.

We come to see what we want to see,
Oh, we come to see, but we never come to know.
