Proud Convey It
I’ve got a story and I’m proud to tell you it
I’ve got a bong and I proud display it
I’ve got a pride and I proud convey it
I’ve got a knife in a pocket and I’m gonna take it out

Cause you put me in the corner with the magazines
Put me in the corner like a bag of beans
Put me in the corner and I know what it means
You put me in the corner with a hat
An’ I’m gonna take it off; I’m gonna take it off

But the truth is you’re a tourist and you’ll never know
Collect things on your visit to tell your friends about
An’ you shiver while you live here but you’ll never really know
The feeling of having healing in your hands and then it lets you go…
