I wanna shed my skin, my hair, my face
I've got money saved up
I can buy a new name
But I wonder
How many Mennonites might feel just like this?
I'll learn German, I'll teach sermons and lose my lisp
But I wonder, I wonder

Do you think my name
(someone's keeping you warm)
Do you see my face when
(your chest is crossed with his arms)
I'm bummin' Black and Milds
(Not too many years old)
How much free smoke can you breathe
(and still be young in the bones?)
Wha-ohhhhh, wha-ohhhhhh
Wha-ohhhhh, wha-ohhhhhh

I'm tearing shingles from a roof that's still my home
To keep my head from getting drenched Until that home is gone
But I wonder
If we can hammer in the rain when we're Frozen thaw
How many years until we rest under new sturdy walls?
But I wonder, I wonder

Do you think my name
(someone's keeping you warm)
Do you see my face when
(your chest is crossed with his arms)
I'm bummin' Black and Milds
(Not too many years old)
How much free smoke can you breathe
(and still be young in the bones?)
Wha-ohhhhh, wha-ohhhhhh
Wha-ohhhhh, wha-ohhhhhh

Do you think my name
Someone's keeping you warm
Do you see my face when
Your chest is crossed with his arms?
Bummin' Black and Milds
And not too many years old
How much free smoke can you breathe
And still be young in the bones?
Wha-ohhhhh, wha-ohhhhhh
Wha-ohhhhh, wha-ohhhhhh
