Italiano

Lingua infuocata Jamina
lupa di pelle scura
con la bocca spalancata
morso di carne soda
stella nera che brilla
mi voglio divertire
nell'umido dolce
del miele del tuo alveare
sorella mia Jamina
mi perdonerai
se non riuscirò a essere porco
come i tuoi pensieri

staccati Jamina
labbra di uva spina
fatti guardare Jamina
getto di fica sazia
e la faccia nel sudore
sugo di sale e cosce
dove c'é pelo c'é amore
sultana delle troie
dacci piano Jamina
non navigare di sponda
prima che la voglia
che sale e scende
non mi si disfi nell'onda

e l'ultimo respiro Jamina
regina madre delle sambe
me lo tengo per uscire vivo
dal nodo delle tue gambe
(3 volte)

English

Tongue fiery Jamina
she-wolf with dark skin
with an open mouth
bite of firm meat
black star that shines
I want to have fun
in the sweet humid
honey of your hive
my sister Jamina
forgive me
If I can not be pig
like your thoughts

detach yourself Jamina
gooseberry lips
let me look Jamina
jet of satisfied pussy
and face in the sweat
sauce, salt and thighs
where there is hair there is love
sultana of the sluts
go slow Jamina
don't sail shore
before the desire
rising and falling
I disposes in the wave

and the last breath Jamina
Queen Mother of Samba
I hold myself to get out alive
from the node of your legs
(3 times)

Comments by Starless

The atmosphere is very dedicated to the Middle East in this track Jamin-a young Algerian woman, not a prostitute, but Queen of intercourse, the woman who every sailor dreams of meeting in every port, a sort of reward after the long months spent in a sea sometimes friend, often dangerous, sailed as facing an evil that sucks all the energy and thoughts and makes the bowels squirm.

The rhythm is hypnotic, harmony entrusted all'oud and bouzouki, strings of Arabic and Greek tradition, both descendants from the lute, the first 11 strings and a short neck, the second at 8 strings and a long handle, and all 'haunting chant of shanaj turkish, enveloping and sinuous sound from the flute.

"Tongue fiery Jamina she-wolf with dark skin
with an open mouthbite of firm meat
black star that shines I want to have fun
sweet in the humid honey of your hive
my sister Jamina forgive me
If I can not be pig like your thoughts..."

The body of Jamin-a is the protagonist, "the bite of tough meat" in a whirlpool of erotic suggestion and sound like a shroud that wraps all sweaty. And in the intimacy of a room, in the throes of passion, even more scathing insults, tougher sentences, become caresses.

"give us slow Jamina don't sail shore
before the desire rising and falling
I disposes in the waveand the last breath Jamina
Queen Mother of Samba I hold myself to get out alive
from the node of your legs..."
