I WAS QUITE LOW BUT I FELT, SHE WOULD TAKE ME HIGHER    
YES I MET A BEAUTFUL GIRL, HER NAME WAS MAYA

 

I COOLY TALKED AND BRAGGED AND DID MY WILY BEST
I FELT SHE MUST HAVE THOUGHT ME VERY SELF-POSSESSED

 

BUT SHE SMILED AND FLICKED HER FAIR HAIR AND HIPS
THERE WAS JUST NO WAY I COULD FORGET THOSE LIPS

 

BUT NOTHING HAPPENED SO I PINED TO NO AVAIL
HER MOTHER TRIED TO HAVE ME THROWN IN JAIL, IN JAIL


MAYA LOVELY GIRL, PLEASE TAKE ME HIGHER
OH MAYA, OH MAYA, YOU’VE STIRRED UP MY DESIRE
MAYA PLEASE MAYA DON’T BURN ME ON THE PYRE


I TRIED SO HARD TO GET HER LOVE AGAIN AND AGAIN
BUT FOR ME PRETTY MAYA HAD NO REAL YEN

 

I WENT TO A WELL-KNOWN SAGE CALLED MI-HO KUNILUNN
HE SAID “IN THIS WORLD NOBODY LOVES NO-ONE”

 

HE ALSO TOLD ME TO CHECK OUT WHAT MAYA MEANS
WHEN I DID, IT BLEW OFF MY SOCKS AND EVEN MY JEANS, MY JEANS

 

THERE IT WAS / IN BLACK AND WHITE / BEFORE MY EYES / FUNK AND WAGNALLS NEVER
TELLS NO LIES / NEVER TELLS NO LIES


I DIDN’T NEED LONG TO COME TO A FINAL CONCLUSION
MAYA IS JUST ANOTHER WAY, ANOTHER WAY TO SAY ILLUSION
