You have tamed me
Now you must take me
How am I supposed to be?
I don't have my thorns now

And I feel them sprouting
They'll grow right through if I don't watch it
They'll grow through even if I watch it
And a sunset couldn't save me now

These baobabs, and baobabs
And baobabs some more
But you cant out-wait fate

You have tamed me
Now you must take me
T-ta t-t-ta t-t-t-ta

And I wouldn't raise my child inside the city anyway
They grow up too savvy and they grow up too fast.
And they know about buying **** and they know about sex
And they know about investment banking and also about brokerage firms
And the know about the numbers and they know about the words
And they know about the bottom lines and also about stones
And they know about careers and about the real deals
And they all grow up and be come people's people with people skills.

You have tamed
Now you must take me
How am I supposed to be?
I don't have my thorns now

You have tamed me
Now you must take me
How am I supposed to be?
I don't have my thorns
