Mmh, yes, then I'd taken the kiss of seedcake
Back from his mouth, going deep South, go down, mmh, yes
Took six big wheels and rolled our bodies
Off of Howth Head and into the flesh, mmh, yes

He said, "I was a flower of the mountain, yes
But now I've powers o'er a woman's body, yes"

Stepping out of the page into the sensual world
Stepping out

To where the water and the earth caress
And the down of a peach says, "Mmh, yes"
Do I look for those millionaires like a Machiavellian girl would
When I could wear a sunset, mmh, yes

And how we'd wished to live in the sensual world
You don't need words, just one kiss, then another

Stepping out of the page into the sensual world
Stepping out off the page into the sensual world

And then our arrows of desire rewrite the speech, mmh, yes
And then he whispered, "Would I, mmh, yes"
Be safe, mmh, yes, from mountain flowers
And at first with the charm around him, mmh, yes

He loosened it so if it slipped between my breasts
He'd rescue it, mmh, yes

And his spark took life in my hand and, mmh, yes
I said, "Mmh, yes", but not yet, mmh, yes
Mmh, yes
