Step Right Up

They started burning down the old farmhouses
Making room for the new
They began to kick out families of ill repute
What a shame, they don’t like me, like you
What a shame, they got nothing better to do
If you’re anything like me, you’d rather stop talking and do
Or next it might be you

Step right up and move your feet
What'cha got left to lose?
Step right up and show your teeth
You better stop talking and do
Step right up and move your feet
It’s time to stand and choose
Step right up and show your teeth
Or next it might be you

The grim look of the land
After the bank took away your life
Promises Unheard
Not even muttered twice
What a shame, they don’t like me, like you
What a shame, they got nothing better to do
If you’re anything like me
You’d rather stop talking and do
Or next it might be you

The harvest didn’t come in
All the famers are starving
So they began bootlegging
Why don’t you come on in?
What a shame, they don’t like me, like you
What a shame, they got nothing better to do
If you’re anything like me
You’d rather stop talking and do
Or next it might be you
