I seen Venus, Venus coming
She come down in a cloud machine
And I believe, I believe that she is
The only woman I ever seen

She came curving soft and hard
Carved outta marble, tall and fair
Her heart is a temple, lover you better
Kneel if you ever enter there
She don't need no one, don't need no one
Don't need no one to hold her hand
I just wanna see her face again
I wanna see her again

Venus laughing, Venus singing
Venus moaning oh my god
It's like to set the green earth spinning
It's like to light the sky above
She opened her mouth, birds flew out
Her love was hovering all around
My love moved inside of me
A snake waked up in my body

I'm not making, I ain't making
I'm not making any kind of plan
I just wanna see her face again
And again, I wanna see her again

I seen Venus, Venus leaving
I don't even know what it means
But I believe, I believe that she is
The only woman I ever seen
