My Ca-Ca-Ca

The teacher told her to stand up, telling her name
from that day on, her life was never the same
I gotta say again
Help my Ca-Ca-Ca

The boys just silly, were talking out of their head
Gave her that name, so she cried every night in her bed
I gotta say again
Help my Ca-Ca-Ca

I was a fool, such a flaw
Why didn’t I do a little more?
Her name was Caroline
shivers are running down my spine

Solo

I was a fool, such a flaw
Why didn’t I do a little more?
Her name was Caroline
She’ll will always be on my mind

The teacher told her to stand up, telling her name
Broken, she fought her way out of the shame
I gotta say again
Help my Ca-Ca-Ca
I gotta say again
Help my Ca-Ca-Ca

Sangen jeg skrev i tresserne med titlen My Ca-Ca-Ca havde dengang ikke rigtig nogen tekst. Jeg sang bare “noget”.

Da jeg begyndte i skole for snart 70 år siden kendte vi ikke ordet mobning. Men det eksisterede.

En pige fortalte mig mange år efter, hvordan hun siden første skoledag havde følt sig udenfor på grund af et mindre handicap. Som helt små legede vi sammen på gaden, men jeg fangede aldrig hendes smerte i skolen, selvom vi gik i samme klasse i 10 år.

Det var nu ikke stamning, der var hendes problem, men her for nylig gik det op for mig, hvad titel og sang skulle handle om i My Ca-Ca-Ca.
