Lyrics: Born Never Asked [Laurie Anderson]

OK, Folks, you know the drill. Allright everyone, let’s gather in front of our large, 13″, Black and White TV set, and watch as a tall, lanky man in a khaki uniform strides out, introduces himself as Sheriff John, and pulls out his accordion. He plugs it into a collection of electronic equipment that makes it sound more like a full organ with reverb, and starts singing the song “Born Never Asked” by Laurie Anderson for [assignment: name]:

It was a large room. Full of people. All kinds.
And they had all arrived at the same buidling
at more or less the same time.
And they were all free. And they were all
asking themselves the same question:
What is behind that curtain?

You were born. And so you’re free. So happy birthday.
