(Safka)
Look what they've done to my song, Ma
Look what they've done to my song
Well it's the only thing I could do half right
And it's turning out all wrong
Look what they've done to my song
Wish I could find a good book to live in
Wish I could find a good book to live in
I'd never have to come out and
Look what they've done to my song
Look what they've done to my brain, Ma
Well they've cook it like a chicken bone
I think I'm half insane, Ma
Look what they've done to my brain
Ils ont changй ma chanson Ma
Ils ont changй ma chanson
C'est le seul chose je peux fais
Est-ce-que n'est pas bonne, Ma?
Ils ont changй ma chanson
Look what they've done to my song, Ma
Look what they've done to my song
Well they've tied it up in a plastic bag
Then turned it upside down
Look what they've done to my song
La, la, la, la...
Well it's the only thing I could do half right
And it's turning out all wrong
Look what they've done to my song, Ma
Oh Mama
Well they've cook it like a chicken bone
Look what they've done to my song, Ma
Look what they've done to my song, Ma
Look what they've done to my song, Ma
Look what they've done to my song, Ma!

    Words are weak. May the intent be understood. Even so let it be. There is a beautiful purpose to our existence. That purpose has been corrupted. We are in a state of punishment masked as an illusion of pursuit of "fun" and "me, me, me". The northeners had it right when they said "op lopt ok lok"... This is the hummingbird wizard... This is song that the bluebird sings... One that has an ear to hear... Hear these words... Know the deeper meaning

    Wow, after sooo many years, this song just popped into my head this morning. I had forgotten some of the lyrics, ergo, i'm here. I think that maybe i had a song when i was birthed, then i was molded into somebody that everybody thought i should be. I am retiring from my job to get out from behind the desk in 53 days. And i think i have to search for the song that is within me...?

    The world took all my childhood dreams and thoughts of what things meant and burnt them on the altar of growing up. Ignore the world and go hide in a good book

    I believe the lyrics have dual meanings.first they rail against the comercialization of the music and i believe secondly and maybe more importantly that the writer feals her creativity is being smothered and thus her inner being or her soul is being destroyed in the processs.
