And they're making children And they're making love With their old excuses We are built for reproduction But I find it soothing When I am confined I'm just fearing one day soon I'll lose my mind
Then I'll lose my children Then I'll lose my love Then I'll sit in silence Let the pictures soak Out of televisions Float across the room Whisper into one ear And out the other one
Then I'll take my clothes off And I'll walk around Because it's so nice outside And I like the way the sun feels And when it's dark I'll call out in the night for my mother But she isn't coming back for me 'Cause she's already gone But you will not tell me that 'Cause you know it hurts me every time you say it And you know you're doing the right thing You must know you're doing the right thing
I have lost my children I have lost my love I just sit in silence Let the pictures soak Out of televisions Out of televisions Out of televisions Out of televisions Out of televisions
And they're making children Everyone's in love I just sit in silence Let the pictures soak

Michael Jackson's "Liberian Girl" opens with the South African female singer Letta Mbulu saying the Swahili phrase "Naku penda piya-naku taka piya-mpenziwe." There was some geographic liberty here, as Swahili is not spoken in the West African nation of Liberia.
Robin Thicke and his mom, Gloria Loring are the first the first ever mother-and-son to have both tallied top 10 singles on the Hot 100 as solo artists or duos. Loring reached #2 with Carl Anderson in 1986 with "Friends and Lovers" and Thicke topped the chart in 2013 with "Blurred Lines."
