I know you won’t get very far
With the back seat driver in the carpetbagger
With the dagger heart grabber stuck in your car
 
And the yard is grown to a hilt
And the money spent money spent where it went
Embarrassment, embarrassment to pay for the car
 
And the man who left you for dead
He’s the heart grabber back stabber double cheater wife beater
You don’t need that man in your life
 
And you worked yourself to the bone
While the people say what they say
It’s the neighbors anyway
They don’t know what’s good for your life
 
And I see your head hangs low
In the black shadow, half shadow
Living room is fitting is sitting room is fit for your crying
 
Don’t be ashamed—don’t hide in your room
For the woman is, woman is the glorious victorious
The mother of the heart of the world
 
Djohariah Djohariah, etc.
 
And the time you held to the light
When water ran water ran with the strange attic
And when the walls were wet with your life
 
And you pushed yourself to the floor
And the spirit went where it went
Hovering discovering uncovering your life, on the floor
 
And the walls were wet with your love
 
For the mother is, the mother is the glorious victorious
The mother of the heart of the world
 
Don’t be ashamed, don’t hide from me now
For the woman is the woman is the glorious victorious
The mother of the heart of the world
 
Djohariah Djohariah, etc.
 
Don’t be ashamed, don’t cry in the bath
For it’s the story of, story of, morning glory story
It’s the gloriole that comes to your path
 
There is a time when the lights will arise
For the mother is, the mother is the glorious victorious
The mother of the heart of the world
 
Go on! Little sister! Go on!
For your world is yours, world is yours
All the wilderness of world is yours to enjoy
 
Go on! Little sister! Go on! Little sister!
For your world is yours, world is yours
All the wilderness of world is yours
 
Go on! Little sister! Go on! Little sister!
For your world is yours, world is yours
All the wilderness of world is yours
 
Go on! Little sister! Go on!
For you’re beautiful, beautiful
All the fullness of the world is yours
