Letra Look Mummy, no Hands


Remember the fair ma, the two of us there ma,
by the merry-go-round
I stood there entranced, as the bright colours danced,
to the magical sound,
Just a dollar for pleasure untold,
and I rode in a world 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 salt 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, but 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 wouldn't heed 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 fly past,
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 this 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,
But I look back and smile and I find myself thinking,
How careless we are when we're young.
