“—What do the children say?
—There's a thing the children say.
—What do the children say?
—They say: Will you always love me?
—Will you always remember me?
—Will you remember me a year from now?
—Yes, I will.
—Will you remember me two years from now?
—Yes, I will.
—Will you remember me five years from now?
—Yes, I will.
—Knock knock.
—Who's there?
—You see?
