The spirit of Fatima still rules the Earth 
She knows your future, she knows what it's worth  Sister Fatima has God-given powers 
And on 42nd Street a shop that sells flowers
Is her palace, come and be healed 

She knows all your business, your health and your ills
She'll counsel your weddings, divorces and wills 
For full restoration five dollars an hour
And with each consultation a free holy flower 
And if she likes you, well you can have two

And I came from nowhere like you and your friend 
My searching and wandering went on without end
My future was dim, my spirit was crushed 
In one sacred moment my questions were hushed 

I'm a servant of fate in this garden of truth 
A humble recruit of the taffeta booth
 Where all things are known but few are revealed 
Sins are forgotten and sickness is healed 
For five dollars the flower is free
