Am                       C
Take me to the big show
                     E
Take me anywhere but here
Am                       C
Put me in the front row, 
                 E
Make my problems disappear

Am                   C
Trapeze high wires, 
          E
Without a safety net
Am                         C
For the present admission, 
                E
I wanna witness life or death

Am             E         Am      E           
All the pretty girls get cut in half 
          Am         E       Am E Am
While the sad clowns make us laugh

  Dm                          Am
I wanna make friends with the freaks, 
                 E                           Am
I wanna throw it down with the clowns that I meet, 
               Dm                         Am
I wanna have a party in the middle of the street
               E                          Am
I wanna have a party in the middle of the street
               Dm                         Am
I wanna have a party in the middle of the street
               E7              E7        E7               E7
Invite all the carnies and the crazy acrobats and bearded ladies 
        E7              E7             N.C,
And the fire breathers, all the people just like me.

Am                            C
Are you ready to risk it all, 
               E
And be a human cannon ball?
Am                                
Sharpen up those knives and throw em'
       C                E
At the fool against the wall, 
      E7               E
We're all against that wall

  Dm                          Am
I wanna make friends with the freaks, 
                 E                           Am
I wanna throw it down with the clowns that I meet, 
               Dm                         Am
I wanna have a party in the middle of the street
               E                          Am
I wanna have a party in the middle of the street
               Dm                         Am
I wanna have a party in the middle of the street
               E7              E7        E7               E7
Invite all the carnies and the crazy acrobats and bearded ladies 
        E7              E7             N.C,
And the fire breathers, all the people just like me.

classicNote: Some of the E-based chords could be wrong. Whatever you think sounds best E, E7, 
or anything else you think sounds better. Also, some of the positions during the verses could 
be off. Just listen to the song and you'll figure it out. Suggestions and constructive 
criticism are always welcome.
