Charades pop skill, water hyacinth, name by a poet.
Imitation of life
Like a koi in a frozen pond, like a goldfish in a bowl,
I don't want to hear you cry.

That sugar cane that tasted good,

that cinnamon, that's Hollywood

Come on, come on; no-one can see you try.

You want the greatest thing,
the greatest thing since bread came sliced
You've got it all; you've got it sized.
Like a Friday fashion show teenager cruising in the corner,
trying to look like you don't try.
That sugar cane that tasted good, that cinnamon, that's Hollywood.
Come on, come on, no-one can see you try.
No-one can see you cry.
That sugar cane that tasted good, that' freezing rain,
that's what you could.
Come on, come on; no-one can see you cry.

This sugar cane, this lemonade, this hurricane,

I'm not afraid.

Come on, come on, no-one can see me cry.

This lightning storm, this tidal wave, this avalanche,

I'm not afraid.

Come on, come on, no-one can see me cry.

That sugar cane that tasted good, that's who you are,
that's what you could.
Come on, come on, no-one can see you cry.
That sugar cane that tasted good; that's who you are,
that's what you could.
Come on, come on, no-one can see you cry.
