Baby Naming Ceremony

Cock your head
To say it right
And don’t you worry
If it’s right
(It might be all wrong)

Don’t despise your name
Because it will find you
In the House of Bread
It has to be this way
Such is your friendship

Not of the Dead Sea
Not of your father
What’s your father?

Ruth the Moabite for Real Toads
