You can shine your shoes and wear a suit,
You can comb your hair and look quite cute,
You can hide your face behind a smile.
One thing you can't hide;
Is when you're crippled inside.

You can wear a mask and paint your face,
You can call yourself the human race,
You can wear a collar and a tie.
One thing you can't hide;
Is when you're crippled inside.

Well, now you know that your cat has nine lives, babe,
Nine lives to itself.
But you only got one
And a dogs life aint fun,
Mama, take a look outside.

Go!

You can go to church and sing a hymn,
You can judge me by the colour of my skin,
You can live a lie until you die.
One thing you can't hide;
Is when you're crippled inside.

Take it, brother!

Well, now you know that your cat has nine lives, babe,
Nine lives to itself.
But you only got one
And a dogs life aint fun,
Mama, take a look outside.

You can go to church and sing a hymn,
You can judge me by the colour of my skin,
You can live a lie until you die.
One thing you can't hide;
Is when you're crippled inside.

One thing you can't hide;
Is when you're crippled inside.

One thing you can't hide;
Is when you're crippled inside.
