lyrics

Late 70's something happened that I just discovered
through an old picture hidden in a jewelry box
Ten months before I was born my mother had a lover
This queer secret leaves me completely in shock

Who is the man embracing my mother again and again?
Why does he hide his face and his huge smile behind a mask?
where did they meet? I don't recognize this caribbean place
How long did this affair last? Now I want to know it all.

One day the circus came to a nearby village
My mother and her friends went to see the show
The main star was a giant wrestler called The Phantom
His strength and his size captivated my mom
Then everything happened so fast
and she didn't miss her chance
It leaves me completely in shock!

Since I saw that photo I can't forget this guy
There is something very familiar to me about his smile
giant size, strong arms, broad shoulders, muscled chest
his body and mine look very similar in all the rest

Who is this man that hugs my mom?
Who is this man behind the mask?
Who is this man that looks like me?
I have no doubt,
I am the Phantom's son.
