(ferry / marr)

Got your money on the table
And the devil in your eye
Who is that woman with the crooked smile?
You got to go with what you feel
A little loving is a dangerous thing
Black is the ocean - a burning sky
Her nature's wild - hard to beat the right stuff
Itґs mountain high - river deep the right stuff
Got your pearls on a string
And your skin's so bare
Over your shoulder thereґs a world out there
You got the nerve - you gonna win
Boy youґre playing with a dangerous thing
So it goes without saying
Sheґs the queen of the nile
Lion woman with the crooked smile
You got the nerve - whoґs gonna win?
Boy youґre playing with a dangerous thing
Send me the woman on a bended knee
Emerald eyes in desert heat
Sheґs mountain high - river deep the right stuff
Send me the woman to fight for me nature's wild - hard to beat
Sheґs mountain high - river deep the right stuff
