So.. I read on the internet that there's an UK version and an US version with different lyrics each other. Is that true? Searching on the internet I found the lyrics with this line:

No other sucker gonna have them on the *beep* mantelpiece.

And another version with this lyrics:

You know well the circus gonna have you on a *beep* mantelpiece.

Personally, I can't find the difference ^^ For me it's just the first lyrics (which is cooler). Can someone confirm that?

I bought AE here in the US.

I listened closer and at first I heard 'circus' but tried it again and here is what I heard:

"No other sucker's gonna have you on the *beep* mantelpiece".

which makes sense in keeping with the theme of the song.

There was a 'clean' version (for radio I think) where *beep* was removed. It was not put on any album/CD that I know. I'll have to go find and listen to it to see if they put in 'circus' in place of 'sucker'.

Found the clean version. It's just the CD version with the *beeps* suppressed.

The 'clean' version where 'f*k was removed? I think some individual probably edited the original to remove a few words. There were no 'changed' lyrics otherwise. It was not a 'US' only version. Official CD releases have not had a difference. I only know if it through the forum here.
