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 Man-din-ka
I do know Man-din-ka
I do know Man-din-ka
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 Man-din-ka
I do know Man-din-ka
I do know Man-din-ka
I do
I do
I do
I say 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
