So Let the Sideshow Begin

sideshow

Can you remember this tune from the 70’s.   I can.  It is one of the saddest songs I can ever remember and today in 2012 it really does have a poignant meaning.

Hurry, hurry, step right up
See the sideshow in town for only fifty cents

Step right up, hurry, hurry before the show begins, my friends
Stand in line, get your tickets, I hope you will attend
It’ll only cost you fifty cents to see
What life has done to those like you and me

See the man with the broken heart, you’ll see that he is sad, he hurts so
bad (So bad, so bad)
See the girl who has lost the only love she ever had
There’s got to be no sadder show to see
No doubt about it, satisfaction’s guaranteed

So let the sideshow begin
Hurry, hurry, step right on in
Can’t afford to pass it by
Guaranteed to make you cry

Let the sideshow begin (Hurry, hurry)
Hurry, hurry, step right on in
Can’t afford to pass it by
Guaranteed to make you cry

See the man who’s been cryin’ for a million years, so many tears
(So many tears)
See the girl who’s collected broken hearts for souvenirs
It’s more exciting than a one man band
The saddest little show in all the land

So let the sideshow begin (Hurry, hurry)
Hurry, hurry, step right on in
Can’t afford to pass it by
Guaranteed to make you cry

Let the sideshow begin
Hurry, hurry, step right on in
Can’t afford to pass it by
Guaranteed to make you cry

So let the sideshow begin (Hurry, hurry)
Hurry, hurry, step right on in
Can’t afford to pass it by
Guaranteed to make you cry

Let the sideshow begin (Step right on in)
Hurry, hurry, step right on in
Can’t afford to pass it by
Guaranteed to make you cry (Hurry, hurry)

Let the sideshow begin (Step right on in)

Because that is what the disappearance of this little girl is,

It is nothing but a sideshow for the likes of Amaral, Birch, Bennett and Brown with each of them wanting your 50 cents in order for you to sit and watch them inflict more pain and misery on a family who are already suffering the most intolerable pain ever, the not knowing where their daughter is.

Hope you enjoy the sideshow because from where I am sitting and observing, after tonights tweets from Pat Brown begging yet again for money to fund her trip and the other carry ons and the antics of all the other anti-McCanns,

I don’t.
