Song Meaning
Verse 1
Well, there's gonna be a Freakers Ball,
Yes, yes, tonight at the Freakers Hall,
Yeah and you know that you're invited,
One and all.
Verse 2
c'mon babies... grease your lips...
Put on your hats, and swing your hips.
Don't forget to bring your whips.
We're goin' to the Freakers Ball.
Verse 3
Blow your whistle...bang your gong --
Roll up somethin' to take along.
Feels so good... it must be wrong -
Freakin' at the Freakers Ball.
Verse 4
All the fags and dikes, they're boogyin' together --
Leather freaks dressed in all kinds of leather.
The greatest of the Sadists and the Masochists, too,
Screamin' "Please hit me" and "I'll hit you".
Verse 5
F.B.I. dancin' with the junkies -
All the Straights swingin' with the Funkies
'Cross the floor and up the wall
Freakin' at the Freakers Ball.
Verse 6
Everybody is lovin' each other --
Brother with sister... son with mother.
Smear my body up with butter,
And take me to the Freakers Ball.
Verse 7
So pass that roach and pour the wine --
I'll kiss yours and you'll kiss mine.
I'm gonna boogie til I go blind --
Freakin' at the Freakers Ball.
Verse 8
Black ones, white ones, yellow and red ones --
Necropheliacs lookin' for dead ones.
The greatest of the Sadists and the Masochists, too --
Screaming' "Please hit me" and "I'll hit you".
Verse 9
Everybody ballin' in batches --
Pyromaniacs strikin' matches.
I'm gonna itch me where it scratches --
Freakin' at the Freakers Ball, y'all
Freakin' at the Freakers Ball.
