Artificial Lady I love you like sugarcane, Come and keep me warm.
It’s all because of the love I have for you, We are dancing. I’ve been living peacefully, I have done my best to no avail I have suffered a disappointment. . Don’t forget the past Beautiful woman. Don’t worry me, Love sickness, Tell me the truth. I am not afraid.
