Text písně

If it came to pass
That they should ask,
What could I tell them?
Would they criticize
Behind my back?
Maybe I should let them.
Oh, if only then, and only then
They would understand,
They'd turn
A full-blooded city boy
Into a full-blooded city man.

If they could face it,
I could take it,
In their eyes
I know I'd make it.
Their tiny minds
And sacred cows just fake it.
If only then, and only then
They would understand,
They'd turn
A full-blooded city boy
Into a full-blooded city man.

But I know the way
They want me,
In the way they publicize.
If they could turn
Their focus off
To the image in their eyes,
Maybe it would help them,
Help them understand
That a full-blooded city boy
Is now a full-blooded city man.
