NAKED

YOU CAN WEAR A SUIT
AND YOU CAN WEAR A TIE,
BUT YOU'RE NAKED WHEN YOU'RE BORN,
AND YOU'RE NAKED WHEN YOU DIE.
IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT YOU WEAR,
IT'S THE LOOK IN YOUR EYE
THAT LEAVES YOU NAKED.
YOU CAN DRESS UP LIKE A WOMAN,
YOU CAN DRESS UP LIKE A MAN,
BUT, THERE'S REALLY NO WAY
YOU CAN FAKE IT.
PEOPLE KNOW WHAT YOU ARE
BY THE WAY THAT YOU STAND,
CUZ YOU'RE NAKED.

YOU CAN WEAR A TUTU,
OR A TEN GALLON HAT.
DRESS IN A DIRTY BATHROBE,
OR A SHINY SILK CRAVAT.
IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT YOU WEAR,
PEOPLE KNOW WHERE YOU'RE AT,
CUZ YOU'RE NAKED.
EVERYTHING YOU'RE THINKIN',
EVERYTHING YOU FEEL,
WHEN YOU'RE TALKIN' TO A LOVER,
OR TRYIN' TO MAKE A DEAL.
THEY ALWAYS KNOW IF YOU'RE A PHONY,
OR IF YOU ARE FOR REAL,
CUZ YOU'RE NAKED.

NAKED.
WE'RE ALL NAKED.
NAKED.
WE'RE ALL NAKED.

YOU CAN WEAR A SUIT OF ARMOR,
OR A PAIR OF BOWLING SHOES.
DRESS UP LIKE A FARMER,
OR A MONK FROM KATHMANDU.
BUT PEOPLE KNOW IF YOU'RE IN BLISS,
OR IF YOU'VE GOT THE BLUES,
CUZ YOU'RE NAKED.
WE'RE AS NAKED AS THE CREATURES
LIVIN' IN THE ZOO.
AS NAKED AS THE DANCER
DOIN' THE HOOCHY KOO
WE'RE AS NAKED AS A JAYBIRD,
AND THERE'S NOTHIN' WE CAN DO,
CUZ WE'RE NAKED.

YOUR TEACHERS,
AND YOUR PREACHERS,
THE JUDGE UPON THE BENCH.
THE DOCTORS,
AND THE LAWYERS,
THE MECHANIC
WITH HIS WRENCH.
THE SOLDIERS,
AND THE SAILORS,
THE BUMS
OUT ON THE STREET.
YOUR MOTHER
AND YOUR FATHER,
AND EVERYONE YOU MEET,
ARE ALL NAKED.
NAKED.
