The Lyrics

Conceived in the state of euphoria, and born in the state of shock

Con-ceived in the heat of love
The first slap I felt came by a doctor’s glove
I cried out like a pig that is be-ing snuffed
And when they cut the cord I had had enough, now

Born in the state of shock
I was
Born in the state of shock
I was
Born in the state of shock
Born in the state of shock, now

OFF! with that little flap of skin
Doctor with a scalpel… plunging in
Whacked it off with no time to loose
Guess eight day waits are for the Jews

Born in the state of shock
I was
Born in the state of shock
I was
Born in the state of shock
I was
Born in the state of shock


Whisked from mom to the nursery
Almost like a draft into “the infantry”
Rank and file sleeping tiny tots
With standard issue Army cots now

(instrumental break)

My dad and mother, rushed me home
Showing off to every one
I was scared, it t’wernt fun

There was this neighbor who smoked in my face
He puffed his cigar it seemed out of place, uhh!


Sick from the drive home I got colicky
Up shot the liquids they had given me
My first time burping - lost my lunch
Newborn babies sure can raise a fuss

Born in the state of shock
I was
Born in the state of shock,now
Born in the state of shock
I’m a bald head baby in the state of shock, now

Born in the state of shock
Born in the state of shock
Born in the state of shock
I’m a drool drippin’ baby in the state of shock, now

To make things worse, it's all downhill from there.
