Fm Bbm Fm Well, my name is Mathias and I came to say this: Fm C C7 I've got a big bushy beard and kissable lips Fm Bbm And I carry all my fat in my ass and my hips C C7 Fm And the rest of me is skinny as a stick Fm Bbm Fm In the sixties, my mom was thin and mini-skirted Fm C C7 She was raised as a Catholic, but then she converted Fm Bbm Because she loved my dad's religion; she loved him, too C C7 Fm And that's how I was born a Jew Fm Bbm Fm They lived and went to school in Buffalo Fm C C7 But my dad decided that they had to go Fm Bbm Because the Vietnam War would not be good for his health C C7 Fm And that's how I was born in the Commonwealth CHORUS Ab Eb Where we're born and when we die, we can't control that Fm C C7 And life in between is war and combat Bbm Fm There are targets you can shoot for, mines to circumvent, C C7 Fm but, most of life is an accident. Fm Bbm Fm I've spent time in Peterborough, and in Winnipeg C C7 And leaving is living: just use your legs Fm Bbm 'Cause everywhere is nice if you drink enough beer C C7 Fm So some days I'm there, and some days I'm here. Fm Bbm Fm And it's not about sowing my wild oats or whatever Fm C C7 I sowed my oats when I was young and I thought i was clever Fm Bbm And my oats all rotted in the field where they lay C C7 Fm And I'm oat-less and unemployed these days. Fm Bbm Fm So I have a ukulele, I have a guitar Fm C C7 But I don't have a house or a kid or a car Fm Bbm I'd like to keep it that way as long as I can C C7 Fm But you know what they say about the best laid plans. CHORUS Ab Eb Where we're born and when we die, we can't control that Fm C C7 And life in between is war and combat Bbm Fm There are targets you can shoot for, mines to circumvent, C C7 Fm but, most of life is an accident. Fm Bbm Fm And an accident is something that you don't plan Fm C C7 Like the Y chromozome between a woman and a man Fm Bbm One day I might get hit by a bus or get cancer C C7 Fm (or just stay on C7) But right now all I am is a fabulous dancer Fm Bbm Fm So dance with me, baby! Put your hands on my hips Fm C C7 Kiss my aforementioned kissable lips Fm Bbm Wherever we are, that's where we're at C C7 Fm My name is Mathias and I came to say that.
