Underworld, the queen of pearls
Catches the light that's in your eyes
She has desires and has to get higher
Trying to love the whole wide world

Mother of pearl, she's a charity girl
She's giving herself away, giving herself away
To some body and soul, some body, some body and soul
Some body, some body, some body and soul

Paradise if you pay the price
Inlaid with love, she satisfies
She has to pray alone everyday
Lying in wait for the whole wide world

Mother of pearl, she's a charity girl
And she's giving herself away, giving herself away
To some body and soul, some body, some body and soul
Some body, some body, some body and soul

Black see-through
Dressed to kill and cast her spell
Sequins of fire for her love's desire
She's drifting away from her open shell

Mother of pearl, she's a, a charity girl
Giving herself away, giving herself away
To some body and soul, some body, some body and soul, yeah
Some body, some body, some body and soul, yeah

Some body, some body, some body and soul, yeah
Some body, some body, some body and soul
Some body, some body, some body and soul
