PROSERPINA


Proserpina : Proserpina
come home to mama
come home to mama
Proserpina : Proserpina
come home to mama
come home to mama now

I shall punish the earth
I shall turn down the heat
I shall take away every morsel to eat
I shall turn every field into stone
where I'll walk : crying alone
crying for Proserpina : Proserpina
come home to mama
come holme to mama now

Proserpina : Proserpina
go home to your mother
go home to Ceres
Proserpina : Proserpina
go home to your mother
go home to Ceres now

she has punished the earth
she has turned down the heat
she has taken away every morsel to eat
she has turned every field into stone
where she walks : crying alone
crying for Proserpina : Proserpina
come home to mama
come home to mama now
