  • Softly, in the evening dusk, a woman is singing to me
    She takes me back down the vista of my years, until I see
    I see a child underneath the piano, in the boom of the tingling strings
    Pressing the poised feet of his mother who smiles at him as she sings

    Cucurucu, cucurucu

    Softly now in the evening dusk, a woman is singing to me
    She takes me back down the vista of my years, until I see
    A boy, a child underneath the piano, in the boom of the tingling strings
    Pressing the poised feet of his mother who smiles at him as she sings
    Yearning to belong, yearning to belong
    My heart beats with a ceaseless longing of a yearning to belong
    In spite of myself, and all of these nursery songs
    My heart beats with a ceaseless longing of a yearning to belong

    Till the melodies of childish days, are upon, upon me
    And they take me back, back down the river
    They keep leading me on, they lead me to the sea
    And all of my manhood is cast
    Down in the flood of remembrance, and I weep like a child for the past

    Singing cucurucu, cucurucu
    Singing cucurucu, cucurucu

    I see a child underneath the piano, in the boom of the tingling strings
    Pressing the poised feet of his mother who smiles at him as she sings
    Listen to me son, I'll tell you why your feather's strong
    'Cause he can still say every single day, he's yearning to belong
    Yearning to belong, yearning to belong
    My heart beats with a ceaseless longing of a yearning to belong
    In spite of myself, and all of these nursery songs
    My heart beats with a ceaseless, meets with a peaceless burning to belong
