Was (Not Was): Freakshow

Ian Gittins, Melody Maker, 26 March 1988

"BOBBY Maggot was a big attorney/Through the courtroom down to hell he'd journey/Baldheaded piece of garbage that he was/He'll defend you if your money's honest/Do his best, but that's no promise/Off he goes in his Corvette to get a tan/Oh Lord I ask you/What kind of beast is man?"
'Out Come The Freaks'.

Total word count of piece: 1641
