On my soft bosom!

You try to pin me down,

You are a fool,

 I am a cloud.

 

You try to break my spirit,

You are a fool,

I am not bottled.

 

You try to bind me by names,

You are a fool,

I have many names.

 

You try to ravage my body,

You are a fool,

I am the earth.

 

You try to stop my flow,

You are a fool,

I am the river.

 You try to cage my courage,

You are a fool,

I am a roar.

You try to shackle my freedom,

You have tried enough,

Baby, now rest on my soft bosom!
