Favorite Haunt


Tiny little girl
with black hair
decorated with yellow bow
runs barefoot
through the grove, singing
Dear granny
I am coming, I am coming
following light steps rhythm

Tiny little girl
felt weariness
and sat down, looking around
Over her head, besides
and all over she is seeing
Wild Strawberry
Dear granny
I will eat them. I will eat them
So big, so sweet-scented

Tiny little girl
holding the biggest berry
as a shield
saving the childhood
there preserves all in brand outline
Dear granny
I won't back, I won't back
Just pass in review an pick up
a bit strength for being granny
