I stand here at your border crossing
What a way to meet
Face in total disarray
Papers incomplete
A traveler at your mercy
My future rests on you
Will you turn me back around
Or will you stamp me through

Please forgive my awkwardness
I know I'm quite a mess
If I were a smuggler
I'd have much more finesse
Yes, if I were a smuggler
I'd breeze across this border
My clothes a bit conservative
My papers all in order

So please do check my pockets
And by all means check my bag
Make sure you search my vehicle
And check the license tag
And when you feel I've met
The strict demands of your employer
I hope you find it in your heart
To lose your paranoia
