Human clone of opposite sex.

The following song is written by Randall Garrett. Later few stanzas were added by the science fiction god Isaac Asimov.

Oh, give me a clone


Of my own flesh and bone


With its Y chromosome changed to X


And after it's grown


Then my own little clone


Will be of the opposite sex.




(chorus) Clone, clone of my own


With its Y chromosome changed to X


And when I'm alone


With my own little clone


We will both think of nothing but sex.




Oh, give me a clone


Is my sorrowful moan,


A clone that is wholly my own.


And if she's X-X


And the feminine sex


Oh, what fun we will have when we're prone.




My heart's not of stone,


As I've frequently shown


When alone with my own little X


And after we've dined,


I am sure we will find


Better incest than Oedipus Rex.




Why should such sex vex


Or disturb or perplex


Or induce a disparaging tone?


After all, don't you see


Since we're both of us me


When we're having sex, I'm alone.




And after I'm done


She will still have her fun


For I'll clone myself twice ere I die.


And this time without fail


They'll be both of them male


And they'll each ravage her by and by.
