D                                                   G
The freaks'll stay together, they're a tight old crew 
A                                   D
You look at them and they look at you

It's hard to find love anywhere

The professor is the talker he's the talking man 
A                                       D
And if he can't clean a midway nobody can
D                                         G 
He'll get the tip on in from the midway mud 
G                           A       Bm
You gotta have the sawdust in the blood 
G                      A       D            A
Gotta have the sawdust in the blood 

D                                       G
See the pig-faced man and the monkey girl 
A                       D
Come see the big fat lady 
Bm                    G
'Gator slim with the alligator skin 
A                     D
Come see the devil baby

Springer is the talker he's the talking man 
A                                              D
He's got the whole studio eating out of his hand 
D                                        G
You can be on too with the nuts and the geeks 
G          A     Bm
Call 1-800-IMA FREAK
G       A    D        A 
1-800-IMA FREAK 

D                                     G
Be the pig-faced man or the monkey girl 
A                      D
Come be the big fat lady

Good tab.
Just a little correction: the "alligator skin" part is an Em not a G.
