Lyrics:
Me and my brother were talking to each other
'Bout what makes a man a man
Was it brain or brawn, the month you were born
We just couldn't understand
Our old man didn't like our appearance
He said that only women wear long hair
So me and my brother borrowed money from Mother
We knew what we had to do
We went downstairs, past the barber and gymnasium
And got our arms tattooed
Welcome to my life, tattoo
I'm a man now, thanks to you
I expect I'll regret you
But the skin graft man won't get you
You'l be there when I die
Tattoo
My dad beat me 'cause mine said "Mother"
But my mother naturally liked it and beat my brother
'Cause his tattoo was of a lady in the nude
And my mother thought that was extremely rude
Welcome to my life, tattoo
We've a long time together, me and you
I expect I'll regret you
But the skin graft man won't get you
You'l be there when I die
Tattoo
Now I'm older, I'm tattooed all over
My wife is tattooed too
A rooty-doot-toot, rooty-tooty-tooty-toot
Rooty-toodle-toodle tattoo too
To you
