They don’t have the likes of me where you come from.
I speak quickly, act hastily, love impetuously, and suffer bitterly.
And that’s because I was born in Kansas City, Missouri.
They’ve got tornados, and they call themselves the “Show Me State”
So even though I tiptoed over fault lines as a child,
and blossomed under stormy skies,
Despite being raised on sourdough and tea,
I never got the twister out of me.
I’ve never gone about these things the right way.
And I’m sorry I turned your world upside down.
But I don’t think I should have to apologize
for being a force of nature.
This is how I was meant to be,
that’s why they call it an act of God.
