Sinead O'Connor – Mandinka lyrics

I'm dancing the seven veils
Want you to pick up my scarf
See how the black moon fades
Soon I can give you my heart

I don't know no shame
I feel no pain
I can't see the flame

But I do know Mandinka
I do know Mandinka
I do know Mandinka
I do

They're throwing it all this way
Dragging it back to the start
And they say, "see how the glass is raised?"
I have refused to take part
I told them "drink something new"
Please let me pull something through

I don't know no shame
I feel no pain
I can't...
I don't know no shame
I feel no pain
I can't see the flame

But I do know Mandinka
I do know Mandinka
I do know Mandinka
I do

I do
I do
I said I do
Soon I can give you my heart
I swear I do
Soon I can give you my heart

I do
Mandinka
Soon I can give you my heart
Soon I can give you my heart
Soon I can give you my heart
