When I was born
What a good boy
What a strong boy
And when you were born
What a good girl
What a pretty girl
We've got these chains
People want to strangle us with them
Afraid of change
When temptation calls

And this hair shirt is woven from your brown hair
Bear with me
Bear with me
I know that it isn't right

I write exams
Does anyone give a damn
And if I do
'Cause it won't take much for me

I wake up strange
Is ever gonna change
I wake up strange

And this hair shirt is woven
This song is the cross that I bear
Bear with me
Be with me tonight
But be with me tonight
I couldn't tell you
Chickened out grabbed a pen and a paper

That you were right
Watched TV laid awake all night
We've got these chains
People want to strangle us with them
Afraid of change
When temptation calls
This name is the hair shirt I wear
It's woven from
This song is the cross that I bear
Bear with me
Be with me tonight
And when I was born
What a good boy
What a strong boy
And when you were born
What a good girl
What a pretty girl
