I was born, I was born
I was born, I was born on the floor.
x4

I was born in 1979.
I was just a look in my daddy's eye.
I put it into my mama's mind
to push me through her thighs.

I was enraged
with the black ops sent by the CIA.
I was packing things for Angola;
she said "No, you're just an embryo!"

When I came into this world,
I wanted to be premature.
I said "Mama, I gotta come out soon!"
I kicked against the womb.

I was born in 1961.
I was born to be a son of a gun.
a hot day in Dallas, my mother's water broke.
contractions started, but I was late to the show.

I was born in 1917
when the guns of October sowed my seed.
I was born in 1908
when my battleship was sittin' at the dock of the bay.

When I came into this world,
I wanted to be premature.
I kicked against the womb.
I said "Mama, I wanna come out soon!"

But by the time I was out,
it was twilight; we were shut down.
They cut my umbilical cord
and left me there; I was born on the floor.

I put that thought
into my mother's mind
and I put that look
into my daddy's eye.

I said "Mama,
you must create
a terrible baby they all fear
who destroys the State."

She delivered a bundle of joy
so full of righteous hate,
but by delivery time,
they spanked my behind and it was too late.

When I came into this world,
I wanted to be premature.
I kicked against the womb.
I said "Mama, I gotta come out soon!"

But by the time I was out,
it was twilight; we were shut down.
I was born, I was born
I was born, I was born on the floor.

When I came into this world,
I wanted to be premature.
I kicked against the womb.
I said "Mama, I gotta come out soon!"

But by the time I was out,
it was twilight; we were shut down.
They cut my umbilical cord
and left me there; I was born on the floor.

I was born, I was born
I was born, I was born on the floor.
I was born, I was born, I was born,
well, I was born, I was born on the floor.
whoa, born
well I was born on the floor.
