"Mommy, mommy

if you were a tree,

your little boy in your branches

I would like to be a bird.

If you were river

that the sea is singing,

your little son in your waters

I would like to be a boat.

Mommy, mommy

if you were a river

or were you a tree

you would cradle me

the same in your arms ”.
