I had a little daughter
Her name was Lulubelle
She had a sip of water
And tumbled straight to hell
Oh my lord, how I missed her
I went out of my mind
I had a drink of water
And now I’m doin’ fine
Blyeah-blyeah blyeah…
I had a drink of water
And now I’m doin’ fine

I had a mental father
Angry and depressed
He thought I was a bother
I was his uninvited guest.
Oh I stayed for a few years
Til I turned twenty-one
I had a mental father
And now he’s come undone
Blyeah-blyeah blyeah…
I had a mental father
And now he’s come undone

My ma was into voodoo
She crucified my tongue
I didn’t know what to do
I was scared and very young
Oh I suffered in silence
No one knew how I cried
But that was how she loved me
And now my tongue is tied
mmb-mmb-bmbmm
But that was how she loved me
And now my tongue is tied
