  • One, two, three, four Nam Myoho Renge Kyo Buddha please
    Can you help a little peasant that's begging on her knees
    Illusion fills my head like an empty can
    Spent a million lifetimes loving the same man

    [Chorus]
    Whoa! Every drop that run through the vein
    Always makes it's way back to the heart again
    And by the way you look fantastic in your boots of Chinese plastic

    Hare Krishna, Hare Rama too,
    Govinda I am still in love with you
    I see you in the birds and in the trees
    That's why they call me Krishna Mayee

    [Chorus]

    Hoffa told us we should tolerate the people and the things that make me wanna hate
    Oh have a little mixed mercy on me, this seasoned beauty in this human pageantry
    Jesus Christ came down here as a living man
    If he can live a life of virtue then I hope I can
    Unto others as you would have a turn
    Back here and repeat until you learn, learn, learn

    Whoa! Every drop that run through the vein
    Always makes it's way back to the heart again
    Every dog that lived his life on a chain knows what it's like
    Waiting for nothing!

    And by the way you look fantastic in your boots of chinese plastic Writer/s: ANN FARINA, CHRISTINE HYNDE, JOHN FARINA, SANTO FARINA

  • Mike from Austin, TxFor all you youngsters out there,
    The title is an obvious reference to Bob Dylan's "Boots of Spanish Leather"
