"I think I'll sing you a little ballad. It's a new one. I just learnt it. Oh, I hope you like it."Got my mother's eyes and my father's hair.Does anybody really care?It's gettin' cold out here.Well, I keep walkin' with my head held high,with my head to the sky,with my mother's eyes.And my mother's eyes are with mein the darkness that's been paid for.I'm just a nameless stranger, don't know why.Have I seen all that I could?Have I seen more than I shouldwith my mother's eyes?Have I seen all that I could?Have I seen more than I shouldwith my mother's eyes?And my mother's eyes are with mein the chilly winds of autumn.If I ain't here by winter, she'll know why.I've seen all that I dare.I've seen more than my share.Forgive me if I stare with my mother's eyes.
