Original video
MARIE THERESE
Madame Antoine, Madame Antoine
It's getting dark outside
It's time to come in

MADAME ANTOINE
Oh Mother!

MARIE THERESE
Madame Antoine, it's time to come in

MADAME ANTOINE
Yes, yes mother, I'm coming
One day...

One day I'll be queen
Live on peaches and cream
Wear satin and lace
And laugh in the faces
Of the teachers and priests
And the boys will all fawn
Fawn before me like beasts

MARIE THERESE
Madame Antoine, it's time to come in

HONEST BIRD
Little princess, so sure you are right
But your endless day is their endless night
You can preen in the limelight
In your diamonds in pearls
But the children go hungry
In that other world

MARIE THERESE
Madame Antoine, it's time to come in

MADAME ANTOINE
Little sparrow fly back to wherever you're from
You could never imagine the plane I live on
The intricate steps of the tumblers and clowns
Are above and beyond you cock robin
So just you pipe down
