Are you my mother
Yes I think you are
Come closer mother
Can I see you just a little bit
You belong to me now mother
You belong to me
Mother mother
Just like I did
I don’t care where you came from
I don’t care what you did
You belong to me now
It’s all different now
I’m the only person who can find you
I want to find you mother
I would like to
Can I
Teach me how to find you
Find you properly for me
