D            C6                 Bbmaj7           Am7
   Mmm, yes, then I'd taken the kiss of seedcake back from his mouth,
D                        C6    Bbmaj7 
   Going deep south, go down,   mmm---, yes,
     C6                    D
Took six big wheels, and rolled our bodies ...off of Howth Head,
 C6             Bbmaj7       Am7
Into the flesh,          mmm----, yes!
    Gm7                         Am7
He said I was a flower of the mountain, yes,
    Gm7                      Am7
But now I've powers o'er a woman's body-------!

 D               C/D        Dm7 G/D
Yes, ...stepping out of the page  ...into the sensual world,
D             C/D           Dm7         
     Stepping out-------, |  /  /  /  /  |
G/D                D
    To where the water and the earth caress,
         C6             Bbmaj7       Am7
And the down of a peach says,  'Mmm------, yes!'

       D                                   C6          Bbmaj7
Do I look for those millionaires, like a Machiavellian girl would?
              D          C6     Bbmaj7   Am7
When I could wear  ...a sunset,  mmm---, yes,
    Gm7                Am7                Gm7
And how we'd wished to live in a sensual world,
Am7                 Gm7        Am7
    You don't need words, just one kiss, then another!

D            C/D        Dm7  G/D                      D
    Stepping out of the page    ...into the sensual world,
             C/D        Dm7  G/D                      D
    Stepping out of the page    ...into the sensual world!

  C/D                           G/D
|  /  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  /  |

  C/D            G/D            Dsus2          C/D
|  /  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  /  |

D                                                    C6
   And then our arrows of desire rewrite the speech,
    Bbmaj7                      Am7
Mmm-------, yes, and then he whispered,
         Dsus2                  C6       Bbmaj7             Am7
'Would I,    ...mmm---, yes, be safe, mmm-----, yes, from mountain flowers?'

D                                   C6        Bbmaj7
   And at first with the charm a - round him,  mmm--, yes,
     Am7          Gm7         Am7                Gm7
He loosened it, so if  ...it slipped between my breasts,
He'd rescue it, mmm----, yes!

D                             C6       Bbmaj7   Am7    D
   And his spark took life in my hand        ...and,  mmm---, yes,
   C6   Bbmaj7       Am7            D            C6   Bbmaj7    Am7
I said,  'Mmm, yes,     ...but not yet,   ...mmm----,  yes,   |  /  /  /  /  |
 D            C    Bbmaj7   A7sus4    D
Mmm--------, yes,   mmm---,  yes!
