Bring Your Best

You're in The Big Show now.
It's not a matter of how I treat you.
You're a part of The Show.
There are rules to The Show.
About, how things go.
That's just the way it is.
When you're part of The Show.
There's a lot behind these rules.
Heritage, history, thought.
That's why, it's worked for so long.

My job, is to maintain these rules.
I, am a part, of an ongoing legacy.
That started long before your time.
What I am, has been handed down
Through a unique gene pool.
Produced by Mother Nature.
And all handeled by the natural order of things.
That's why you're here with me right now.
It's part of the natural order of things.
Oh, you-are-fine-as-a-dime.
You should do fine.

And don't worry you'll be safe with me.
This has been around since the beginning of time.
In fact, you can call me Father-Time.
Because I'm the father
Of all your time from this moment on.
If you want to be a part of The Show.
Of course you've got to follow the rules.
That's the only reason you'll be on-board.
If I accept you.
Into this show.

You see, this is my show.
The street show, the ongoing never ending freak show,
This is the sex show, that is my show.
That's why it's the best show around.
So what's it going to be?
You want to be a part of The Show?
Then you with me.
Say the word.
Or you can take your great goods elsewhere.
