I think this one sort of all came together -- and in time, too?

Lyrics

I was at the circus
and I thought I'd do something sweet for my honey.
I was at the circus
so I bought her
I bought her a stuffed cannibal.
She screamed! She screamed!
Apparently she did not like it.
She screamed! She screamed!
She found it quite offensive.

I did not know why she screamed.
I thought it was a cute thing.
A scorpion, sure with its sting,
but it was just stuffed.
It was a stuffed, quite stuffed cannibal.
As scorpions, as they grow,
mostly just eat scorpions.
Scorpions as they grow,
mostly just eat scorpions.

We were at the circus
and I thought I'd do something sweet for my honey.
We were at the circus
so I bought her
I bought her a stuffed cannibal.
She screamed! She screamed!
Apparently she did not like it.
She screamed! She screamed!
She found it quite offensive.

I thought it was a cute little thing
I thought it was a cute praying mantis.
I thought it was a cute little thing
and only half of them are cannibals.
But, did you know that if it's a lady
I bought her a stuffed cannibal.
I bought her a stuffed cannibal!
They praying mantis ladies
apparently think the male is yummy.
Apparently the praying mantis ladies
just gobble, and gobble, and gobble the man all up.

But what can I do? I was trying to be sweet.
So I took her to a prison.
Not a real working prison.
I took her to a prison
that had become kind of a theme park.
We went to the gift shop
and I thought about buying her
a stuffed cannibal.
But I didn't, so we're still together.
