Out on the wine dark sea-- ma pretty baby and me
What do you mean when you say life is so long?
All I know is that I'm coming home to Maman
And Maman is so Erzulie Danto

Upon my tete
I wear my hat
An a long black coat
Sunglasses cracked

The smoke rise up
I pull you down
Down to the floor
Drag you around

Ghostly girl sure has grown
I ain't going to tell you what her car runs on
Sweet Mama in a yellow dress
Leave your heart in a white hot mess
Maman, Maman is so Erzulie Danto

That Loup Garroux will come for you
When you come to, you're all black and blue
Walking past the graveyard (on) your way home
Sing that song pour Ma Baron
Maman! Maman is so-- Maman is so Erzulie Danto

Ma Belle Jolie Madame Ochun
(We'll) sing your song pour La Claire de Lalinn
Meet her by the gate
Dance on the stones
Never get out of this world alone
Maman take you by the hand
Lead you out of this sorrowful land
Maman Maman is so Erzulie Danto
