I am a sleuth
I ferret the truth
I dig up the facts even when there are none
a silent child
an elegant youth
this led me to find
the truth about Ruth

Ruth is... John
Ruth is... John
we all do what we can
just to get along

The life you lead
straightforward and bland
everything happens
according to plan
but some people fight
just to take root
in a world ill-equipped
for the truth about Ruth

Ruth is... John
Ruth is... John
we all be who we are
just to get along

Oh bully for you
oh bully for you
your groin and your face
slip right into place
masoned and carved
your arrow is drawn
you know who you are
yet you have no idea

Ruth is John!
Ruth is John!
and sooner or later
we are all
cut down.
