Would you like to taste a little pain
From the fickle hand of fame
Aren't you happy that the road to success 
Is littered with drugs and sex
It's all here for your delectation 
In compromising situations
Let fallen heroes entertain you
Take a look
Nobody's gonna blame you
Say hello, le Grand Guignol
Say hello, le Grand Guignol
Say hello, to the broken people
The broken people
 Snake dancers, sex changer 
Come inside 
It gets stranger and stranger 
Got a lot of unpleasant surprises
 Cruelty comes in all shapes and sizes 
Say hello, le Grand Guignol
Say hello, le Grand Guignol
Say hello, to the broken people
The broken people
Say hello, le Grand Guignol
Say hello, le Grand Guignol
Say hello, to the broken people
The broken people
It's Grand Guignol
It's rock 'n' roll
It's vaudeville and burlesque 
All of human life is here
In the theatre of the grotesque 
The city has turned upside down
The circus lion is eating the clown 
We're all delivered to the poison pens
And sacrificed to the pig with the lens
Say hello, le Grand Guignol
Say hello, le Grand Guignol
Say hello, to the broken people
The broken people
Say hello, le Grand Guignol
Say hello, le Grand Guignol
Say hello, to the broken people
The broken people
It's Grand Guignol
It's rock 'n' roll
It's vaudeville and burlesque 
All of human life is here
In the theatre of the grotesque
