Look Mummy, No Hands
- 8 Views
Remember the Fairmont The two of us there, mom By the merry-go-round I stood there entranced As the bright horses danced To a magical sound Just a dollar for pleasure untold And I rode in a whirl of scarlet and gold Look, Mummy, no hands I'm riding the roundabout all by myself Look, Mummy, no hands I called as I passed her, faster and faster "Hold on tight, darling" She called out in fear But I laughed and pretended That I couldn't hear How careless we are when we're young Remember the years Of the sulks and the tears Do you recall? I hated you when you said Be back by ten I knew it all Always asking to know what I'd done When as far as I knew, I was just having fun Look, Mummy, no hands I know how to take good care of myself Look, Mummy, no hands Please don't be a bore, cause I know the score She tried to warn me But I didn't hear her I was grown up And I didn't need her How careless we are when we're young Remember the daughter And all that you taught her She's grown up at last With a child of her own She struggles alone As the years all rush pass But now you're not there to answer her call You're not there to catch her when she stumbles and falls Look, Mummy, no hands I'm having to do it all by myself Look, Mummy, no hands I used to dismiss you, now I just miss you As my child grows away from me I feel my heart sinking I look back and smile And I find myself thinking How careless we are when we're young
