Sri Lankan Woman

Hear the song

Her eyes were not unlike pearls in an oyster,
And her lips were like fine silk, only moister.
And when she talked, Oh!, her voice would melt right through you.
She opened up my head and my brain, and a ball fell through.

Sri Lankan Woman
I got you on my mind.
Sri Lankan Woman
I don't think I can leave my Sri Lankan woman behind!
(Sri Lankan Woman, Oh!) Sri Lankan Woman,
(I got you on my mind, babih, baby) I got you on my mind.
(Sri Lankan Woman, I don't) And I don't
(together) think I can leave my Sri Lankan woman behind.

Her feet were soft and warm, just like her ears,
And when I stuck my tongue inside of one, she couldn't hear.
And when she walked by I thought I would die!
I don't want to say good-bye to my...

Sri Lankan Woman
I got you on my mind.
Sri Lankan Woman
I don't think I can leave your precious behind!
(Sri Lankan Woman, Oh!) Sri Lankan Woman,
(I got you on my mind, babih, baby) I got you on my mind.
(Sri Lankan Woman, I don't) And I don't
(together) think I can leave my Sri Lankan woman behind.

Her soft black hair reached from her head down to her toes,
And when my head was in her lap, I could see right up her nose.
Her hair, her hair, was all feathered back and wavy
And the touch of her skin reminded me of warm bitty babies.

(Sri Lankan, Sri Lankan) Sri Lankan Woman, (baby Sri Lankan)
(Sri Lankan, Sri Lankan) I got you on my mind (baby Sri Lankan).
(Sri Lankan, Sri Lankan) Sri Lankan Woman, (baby Sri Lankan)
I don't think I can leave your cute little behind!
(Sri Lankan Woman, Oh!) Sri Lankan Woman,
(I got you on my mind, babih, baby) I got you on my ma-i-a-i-a-ind.
(Sri Lankan Woman, I don't) And I don't
(together) think I can leave my Sri Lankan woman-
Babih! Babih! Babih!
Sri Lankan Woman!
