I’ll break your bones, like a bear ate fish from the movie, and use it to see your soul!
I’ll skip the broom in your throat, you will move upside down, take it to the hairdresser and put in order all your dirty hair!
I sderu with your skin and will wear it as a dress, and then I ride on broken glass, and then shove you in it!
I will cut off your hands, and attach them to where were your feet, cut off the foot and attach them to where were your hands, I will show you and laugh!
I will cut off your hair, shove them into the jar and send them to the Pope, with salmon.
