Lyrics

(Source: The Lion and the Cobra)

I'm dancing the seven veils.
Want you to pick up my scarf.
See how the black moon fades;
Soon I can give you my heart.
Woo-ooh,
Woo-ooh.
I don't know no shame, I feel no pain,
I can't see the flame.
But I do know Mandinka.
I do know Mandinka.
I do know Mandinka.
I do, oh-oh.
They're throwing it all this way,
Dragging it back to the start.
And they say, "See how the glass is raised?"
I have refused to take part.
I told them, "Drink something new.
Please, let me pull something through."
I don't know no shame, I feel no pain
I can't.
I don't know no shame, I feel no pain,
I can't see the flame.
But I do know Mandinka,
I do know Mandinka,
I do know Mandinka,
I do,
I do,
I do,
I say I do.
Soon I can give you my heart.
I do
Mandinka.
Soon I can give you my heart.
Soon I can give you my heart.
Soon I can give you my heart.
Soon I can give you my heart.
