Lyrics: Noa (Achinoam Nini)
Music: two part invention number 13 Johann Sebastian Bach
Oh mama dear do not expect me to comply,
I’m in the middle of a “story”!
My body’s doing things I can’t understand
My mind is banging like a big bright brass band
As for my mouth, well
As we can both tell,
It’s making Bolt look slow….!
Oh mama dear don’t ask me to calm down, I can’t!
I try to answer you politely , then I rant!
Believe me this is nothing I can control!
And besides the both of us are playing our role,
You are trying to save me from myself,
It’s for my own health,
And then we both yell,
Until we sound like sirens rushing to a fire..!
Oh mama dear there is so much that you can’t see,
I’m locked into a loop and everything is me,
I’m taught to think that I can tear the world apart,
And every selfie is a stunning work of art!
Oh mama dear, it’s very clear we’re lost inside
A world that tells us that the other is a thing we need to buy
That global warming is a joke at best, or a blatant lie
And plastic islands floating in the sea are far away so why,
Oh mama dear, just look at me,
I’m smarter than you’ll ever be!
Got a heart of gold, I’m brave and bold I’ll save the world like mommy’s girl,
Common now, mama…
Let’s just hold each other very tight
And say good night…..
(good night, mama…)
