Ahh ahh
Ahh ahh
Ahh ahh woo ooo

Venice breathing shy chimeras
Of sex and violence
In the purple evening silence
Venice dreaming of a partner

Velour arms with breasts of marble
From the cradle to the table
Coax this naked treasure from
Your savior

Come swim into my love
Come swim into my life

Divine blasphemer temptin'
Holy beads of Jism
With the scarlet catechism
Her lips will answer
(Oh, her lips will answer)

How to be there perfect stranger
(Ahh ahh)
The perfect lover wanting
(Ahh ahh)
And as you'll discover giving
And as you'll discover being

Come swim into my love
Come swim into my life
Enter this sublime corrosion
Venice drowning in an emotion

The body stirs and is reanimated
Only briefly
But then life is very brief

Entra in questa corruzione
Venezia e' un'emozione
Vieni e nuota nel mio amore
(Come and swim into my love)
Vieni e incontra la mia vita
(Come and swim into my life)

Ahh ahh
Ahh ahh woo
Ahh woo ooo
Aaa

Venice drownin'
Venice drownin'
Venice drownin'
Venice drownin'
Venice drownin'
Venice drownin'
(Slowly disappearing, slowly disappearing, slowly disappearing)
(Slowly disappearing, slowly disappearing)
Venice drownin'
(Slowly disappearing, slowly disappearing, slowly disappearing)
(Slowly disappearing, slowly disappearing)
Venice drownin'
(Slowly disappearing, slowly disappearing, slowly disappearing)
(Slowly disappearing, slowly disappearing)
Venice drownin'
(Slowly disappearing, slowly disappearing, slowly disappearing)
(Slowly disappearing, slowly disappearing)
