Lyrics

Mommy, Mommy come and see
Look what i have found
A little way away from here
While digging in the ground

Come away Melinda, come in and close the door
It's nothing but a picture book
They had before the war

Mommy, Mommy come and see
Oh mommy hurry look
Four or Five Melinda girls
Inside this picture book

Come away Melinda, come in and close the door
There were lots of little girls like you
Before they had the war

Mommy, Mommy come and see
Such things i had never seen
Happy faces all around
And all the grass is green

Come away Melinda, come in and close the door
That's just the way it used to be
Before they had the war

Mommy, Mommy come and see
Oh mommy hurry do
Someone grown up very tall
Who doesn't look like you

(rubato)
Come away Melinda, come in and close the door
Your father was a man like that
Before they had the war

(tempo)
Mommy mommy come and see
Tell me if you can
Why can't it be the way it was
Before the war began

Come away Melinda, come in and close the door
The answer lies in yesterday
Before they had the war
