I LOST MY TALK

I lost my talk
The talk you took away
When i was a little girl
At Shubenacadie school

You snatched it away.
I speak like you
I think like you
I create like you
The scrambled ballad about my words.

Two ways i talk
Both ways i say
Your way is more powerful.

So gently i offer my hand and ask.
Let me find my talk,
So i can teach you about me.
