Bb+b5 Fmaj7
Me and my brother were talking to each other
Cadd9 BbII Dadd2
About what makes a man a man
Bb+b5 Fmaj7
Was it brain or brawn, the month you were born
Cadd9 BbII Dadd2 D
We just couldn't understand
D G D D Dsus4 D
Our old man didn't like our appearance
G Asus4 Ano3
He said that only women wear long hair
Bb+b5 Fmaj7
So me and my brother borrowed money from mother
Cadd9 BbII Dadd2
We knew what we had to do
Bb+b5 Fmaj7
We went downstairs, past the barber and gymnasium
Cadd9 BbII Dadd2/D
And got our arms tattooed
D D D Dsus D
Welcome to my life, tat-too
D [as above] D D
I'm a man now, thanks to you
D D/C#
I expect I'll regret you
But the skin graft man won't get you
G Asus4 Ano3 Bb+b5 Fmaj7 Cadd9 BbII
You'l be there when I die tattoo
My dad beat me 'cause mine said mother
But my mother naturally liked it and beat my brother
'Cause his tattoo was of a lady in the nude
And my mother thought that was extremely rude
Welcome to my life, tattoo
We've a long time together, me and you
I expect I'll regret you
But the skin graft man won't get you
You'll be there when I die, tattoo
Now I'm older, I'm tattooed all over
My wife is tattooed, too
A rooty-toot-toot, rooty-tooty-tooty-toot
Rooty-toodle-toodle tattoo too to you
