What I will tell you is what I told the cops after they caught me trespassing with two g’s of bud
White? Why not? I’m not here to represent.
Memphis-born, sure. Southern accent? I can invent.
Never thought my skin colour mattered to this extent
What I will tell you is what I tell “patriots” every time something comes up on the goddamn news
Go back where? I’m American, I was born here
No, this is just a scarf, I’m not wearing “religious headgear”
I cried when the Twin Towers came down, so no, I didn’t cheer
What I will tell you is what I tell the morality police in a land that should feel like home
That girl? I didn’t look, her back pocket has a snag
Officer, I’m engaged, and I promise I’m not a fag
I’ll throw away the bracelet, I don’t even want that rainbow flag
What I will tell you depends on why you ask
There’s not much under here, so pick a part, and I’ll put on my mask
