The first time that I saw you
I said for goodness sake
That man's got the power
He's a charmer with a snake
I was thrilled and fascinated
But somehow liberated,
When you took me to a place I'd never been.
You showed me lots of things I'd never seen

You set me free
As if you'd taken me,
Halfway up the Hindu Kush
And I love you,
For showing me the view
From halfway up the Hindu Kush
