Weird temple land,
There princess Hoodoo dwells a wondrous Hindu maiden,
Come lovers gay
To sing their lay
Their love they offer, jewels proffer as they pray. Oh!
Hoodoo, my Hindu Hoodoo,
Please well me do you give me your love.
Hoodoo, whatever you do,
You’re the idol I’ve been dreaming of.
Across the coral sands
And burning desert sands,
I’ll be as constant as the stars above,
My Hoodoo, I’m pleading to you,
Please tell me, Hoodoo,
Who do you love.
Each lover’s plea
Falls as she throws aside the wealth and love they bring her,
Go to their way
Caravans gleaming still come streaming day by day. Oh!
