Love had bound us together
Like an infant and a mother
I never thought of another
So hardworking like a father
But lo! You’re a monster

After dragging me from the freezing gutters
In the streets
In my heart you planted threats
You brought mistreatment
Ruined my dignity
Defiled my purity
Maimed my sweet heart

As I pick and pack
My rags ready to go
I promise never to show
My face anymore
Cherio, adios, shalom, kwaheri
To the streets I go again
I shall free myself from this chain

Thanks for the sweet bitter times
Spent together
Thanks for the forceful laughter
Bye bye!
