Act 1:
(“Mr. Bad Example”)

I’m very well acquainted with the seven deadly sins
I keep a busy schedule trying to fit them in
I’m proud to be a glutton, and I don’t have time for sloth
I’m greedy, and I’m angry, and I don’t care who I cross
I’m Mr. Bad Example, intruder in the dirt
I like to have a good time, and I don’t care who gets hurt
I’m Mr. Bad Example, take a look at me
I’ll live to be a hundred, and go down in infamy

Act 2:

I can see me bound and gagged
Dragged behind the clown mobile
You can treat me like a dog
If you make me feel what others feel
You can train me, you can drain me
If you make me lose control
I will be your prisoner
I will be your hostage-o
I will be your prisoner
I will be your hostage-o

Act 3:
(“I Was In The House When The House Burned Down”)

I may be old and I may be bent
But I had the money till it all got spent
I had the money till they made me pay
Then I had the sense to be on my way
I had to stay in the underground
I was in the house when the house burned down

Act 4:
(“Excitable Boy”)

Well, he went down to dinner in his Sunday best
Excitable boy, they all said
And he rubbed the pot roast all over his chest
Excitable boy, they all said

Act 5:
(“Lawyers, Guns And Money”)

Well, I went home with the waitress
The way I always do
How was I to know
She was with the Russians, too?
Send lawyers, guns and money
Dad, get me out of this

Act 6:
(“The Envoy”)

Nuclear arms in the Middle East
Israel is attacking the Iraqis
The Syrians are mad at the Lebanese
And Baghdad does whatever she please
Looks like another threat to world peace
For the envoy

Act 7:
(“Splendid Isolation”)

Don’t want to wake up with no one beside me
Don’t want to take up with nobody new
Don’t want nobody coming by without calling first
Don’t want nothing to do with you

Act 8:
(“Something Bad Happened To A Clown”)

Someone lost their squirting rose
There’s his red nose on the ground
No one’s seen his painted smile
He’s been gone for quite a while
Something bad happened to a clown

Act 9:
(“Excitable Boy”)

He took little Suzie to the Junior Prom
Excitable boy, they all said
And he raped her and killed her, then he took her home
Excitable boy, they all said

Act 10:
(“Mohammed’s Radio”)

Everybody’s desperate trying to make ends meet
Work all day, still can’t pay the price of gasoline and meat
Alas, their lives are incomplete

Act 11:
(“My Shit’s Fucked Up”)

Well, I went to the doctor
I said, “I’m feeling kind of rough”
He said, “I’ll break it to you, son
Your shit’s fucked up.”
I said, “My shit’s fucked up?
Well, I don’t see how—”
He said, “The shit that used to work-
It won’t work now.”

Act 12:
(“Keep Me In Your Heart”)

Shadows are falling and I’m running out of breath
Keep me in your heart for awhile
If I leave you it doesn’t mean I love you any less
Keep me in your heart for awhile
When you get up in the morning and you see that crazy sun
Keep me in your heart for awhile
