Oh, give me a clone
Of my own flesh and bone
With the Y-chromosome changed to X
And when it is grown
Then my own little clone
Will be of the opposite sex.
Clone, clone of my own,
With the Y chromosome changed to X.
And when we're alone,
Since her mind is my own,
She'll be thinking of nothing but sex.
