I hope my deeply accented love
Combs the depths of Ohio
To find you, my lover, seated
In your black, leather chaise lounge
Holding the portrait I made of you
Playing the violin...
Blonde Girl from Ohio
I speak love to you!

Come on, dear lovely girl
Raise up from your chaise lounge
Won't you walk to the window
And close your eyes
To see Africa
To see us
Won't you feel a little jealous
When you can't see skyscrapers anymore
When all you see is us
Bathing in the warm nakedness
Of Africa's mystical atmosphere...
Blonde Girl from Ohio
I speak love to you!

I miss you
I miss everything you came with
I miss your hungry hazel eyes
Your sensual, long, blonde hair
The magic around your smile...
I miss these but mostly
Your fears, sorrows, joys and laughter
I miss your possessive glare
Our soul-to-soul chats
I miss your irritating jealousy
Our rants and sweet, silly, dirty talks
Your tender and godly wrath...
Blonde Girl from Ohio
I speak love to you!

As you walk to the window
Do you see all these...
A love that crossed boundaries
Scrubbed off and dissolved colour
A love that sublimed accent
And descent
A love that joked about all these
With no chills but more feeling...
So Blonde Girl from Ohio
Will you come back home
I don't wanna waste more time
I wanna take cows to America...
Blonde Girl from Ohio
I speak love to you!

Or do you still fear
The intriguing glares you received
From the people of the tribe
It's what Britain did to us
But we forgave her
For Africa is the future...
Won't you counter that
With a sweet "Saseni!" ["Hi!"]
And maybe a few Odi Dance moves
While eating KDF and avocados...
Then come to me
By night
Hot and thirsty
Dripping with wetness
Turning Sahara to Paradise
Devour my soul like succubus
Sip me dry and numb
Carry me in your womb...
Blonde Girl from Ohio
I speak love to you!

I hope my deeply accented love
Finds its way to Columbus
I hope my deeply accented love
Knocks at your door
I hope you lay bare
To let it defile and possess you
To let it harm you carefully
I hope my deeply accented love
Swirls and boils Lake Erie
I hope my deeply accented love
Spreads like a bad flu
To hit Michigan and Indiana
Detroit, Pennsylvania
Kentucky, West Virginia
I hope my deeply accented love
Makes it rain upside-down
In the whole of America...
Blonde Girl from Ohio
I speak love to you!
