The Lyrics

A song about a 15-year-old Goth girl who has the Devil's daughter and is busy with schoolwork while her daughter grows up. It's a Mother's Day song.
My demon child arrived just the other day
Came to the world in the Satanic way
But there was ritual birth and I was only 15
she learned to walk while I was at high school
she was talkin' 'fore I knew it
And as she grew she said,
I'm gonna be like you, Mom,
You know I'm gonna be like you.

And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon,
Little girl blue and the woman on the moon.
When you comin' home, Mom?'
I don't know when, but we'll get together then.
You know we'll have a good time then.

Pandora turned ten just the other day.
She said, 'Thanks for the doll, mom. Come on, let's play.
Can you help me dress her?'
I said, 'Not today. I got homework to do.'
She said, 'That's okay.'
And then she walked away but the smile never dimmed and she said,
‘you know, I'm gonna be like her, yeah.
You know I'm gonna be like her.'


Well, she came from college just the other day,
So much a Goth woman, I just had to say,
'I'm proud of you. Could you sit for a while?'
She shook her head and she said with a smile,
'What I'd really like, Mom , is to borrow the broom.
See you later. Can I have it please?'


I've long since retired, my daughter's moved away.
I called her up just the other day.
I said, 'I'd like to see you, if you don't mind.'
She said, 'I'd love to, Mom, if I could find the time.
You see my new job's a hassle and the kids have the flu,
But it's sure nice talkin' to you, Mom.
It's been sure nice talkin' to you.'
And as I hung up the phone it occurred to me,
she'd grown up just like me.
My girl was just like me.
