The Lyrics

Three very different cultures coming together! Original Song:
My parents think I’ve
gone so awry
Silly mom and dad
Cause I went into the town
Close to New York’s Bronx
They thought I was a nice young man

Had to get out
Had to get a look
So I went out for rumspringa
Said “Goodbye, mom and dad”
and I’ve changed my ways
Overnight, I’ve turned into a gangsta

I'm now a street Mennonite
from East Lancaster, Pennsylvania

Now my parents just frown
The way I get around
I’ve got spinning rims on my buggy
Back home, I once was so biblical
Now, I’m a criminal
Don’t grow a beard, my face is just stubbly

I call my friends on the phone,
from my brand new home
I know that my mother would worry (Pfft)
Now, I have come so far
But I don’t need a car
When I do my drive-by churnings

Well I still dress in all black
Now, my pants sag
Don’t worry, not satanic
I go out every night
And they call me so fly
They call me the Germanic maverick.

Cause I’m a street Mennonite
from East Lancaster, Pennsylvania

Man, I was raised so uptight (tight)
It was such a fright (fright)
Adding to my dad’s furniture collection
Now that I am a man
I’ll just do what I can
Do things that are out of the convention

I'm just a street Mennonite
from East Lancaster, Pennsylvania

I'm just a street Mennonite
from East Lancaster, Pennsylvania

Should go back to my fam
Won’t end up on the slab
I won’t be here for the investi….gation
So maybe this place
is just too “in your face”
So I'll return back home, but keep my rhythm
