  • 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
    Oh 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
    Maybe it would help them, help them understand
    Maybe it would help them, help them understand
    That a full-blooded city boy
    Is now a full-blooded city man

    Oh my soul
    Oh my soul
    Oh my soul
