lyrics

Seven’s her number
Green is her color
Venus is on the prowl
Eight is a dark house
Sometimes you can’t get out
All you can do is howl

The serpent said it’s just a little bite
And so I thought that it would be alright
Jai ma, jaya jaya ma
Let it ripen till the full moon
You want to pick it but it’s just too soon
Jai ma, jaya jaya ma

Come closer to your heart’s delight
Come closer to your heart’s delight
Come on, closer to your heart’s delight
Tonight

Rose and myrtle leaf, sweet neroli
She brews a potion for a love so free
Jai ma, jaya jaya ma

Come closer to your heart’s delight
Come closer to your heart’s delight
Come on closer to your heart’s delight
Tonight

Mama, baby, baba
Mama, baby, baba
Mama, baby, baba

Seven’s her number
Green is her color
Venus is on the prowl
Eight is a dark house
Sometimes you can’t get out
All you can do is howl

Come closer
Come on closer
Jai ma, jaya jaya ma

Come a little
Come a little
Jai ma, jaya jaya ma
