Billy Bragg – I Was Born lyrics

I was born at half past 12, almost one in the morning;
I was born at half past one, almost two in the morning.
Now my birthday comes again and I don't know how old I am;
Half past one or two or three, almost 4 in the morning.

I was born at half past four, almost 5 in the morning;
I was born at half past six, almost 7 in the morning;
How old am I, you ask of me? One year younger than I used to be;
Half past 7, half past 8, half past nine in the morning.

I was born at half past nine, almost ten in the morning;
I was born at 1/2 past ten, almost 'leven in the morning;
Today my age is tweedle and 'twee I'm prettier than I used to be;
Half past 'leven, half past 'leven, almost 12 in the morning.

Words: woody guthrie (1950) - music: billy bragg (1996)

Billy bragg: acoustic guitar
