Your noble highness
The mighty monarchy princess
Were it not that you ain’t mine
Were I not a tapper of palm wine
The gods would overturn your betrothal
The sacred shrine would know I am lethal

Lulu, my blood is not of kingship line
Were it not that I would stink like swine
I swear to thunder, I would make it a custom
Ingressing like a termite into your kingdom
Face you, dressed like a Venice merchant
Subject myself to be your amorous servant

Were it not that your territory is guarded
Were I not to be regarded a retarded
I would sneak in like an urgent message
Serve you with a soothing royal massage
Wander like a bee on steamy roses then dive
Spill creamy nectar into crowned hive.

Were it that you are of this planet
I would wish to be your royal carpet
Feel the tenderness of an angel without wings
Whose flavoured skin swings the muggy ‘kings’
It is a taboo to crave for the princess’ lips
I would yawn at the sight of your crescent hips.
