Women will chase you down
Like they’re drunk out of their minds
Play all kinds of tricks on you
Till they make you call out their name
Once they win your heart
Somehow they don’t want you no more
Just like a booby prize
Won in a carnival game

Can’t be the lonely one
Sure you’re not the only one
Everybody gets to take a ride
But no one’s ever been satisfied
In the rundown carnival of love

Paper says it’s gonna snow
So you dream of where you’d go
If you had a month or two
Just take off and catch a clue
Get that girl out of your thoughts
Commit deeds without getting caught
Take on a new identity
Just like the man you want to be

Inside your lonely dream
You can still feel the steam
Of the way she held your self-esteem
And no one’s gonna care if you scream
In the rundown carnival of love

Back to the shooting gallery
Show yourself you ain’t done yet
And you can’t see her anyway
Where the broken sights are fixed
When you’ve blasted her from your mind
Go off and feed your baser needs
Just remember we’re all decoys
Set up for Cupid’s kicks

You just keep falling down
Like that old circus clown
And you can’t even make a sound
And there ain’t much laughter to be found
In the rundown carnival of love
