Who are you 
       (Who are you, who who, who who), 
I really want to know
                (Who are you, who who, who who) 
Tell me who are you
                (Who are you, who who, who who) 
'Cause I really wanna know

[verse]
I took the tube back out of town, back to the rollin' pin
I felt a little like a dying clown with a streak of rin tin tin
I stretched back and I hiccupped and looked back on my busy day
Eleven hours in the tin pan, god, there's got to be another way.

[repeat chorus]
Well, who are you
             (Who are you, who who, who who)
Oh, who are you
           (Who are you, who who, who who)
Come on tell me who are you
                       (Who are you, who who, who who)
Oh, who the fuck are you
                    (Who are you, who who, who who)
