A goddess on a mountain top
Burning like a silver flame
A summit of beauty and love
And Venus was her name.

She's got it,
Yeah baby,she's got it.
I'm your Venus,
I'm your fire at your desire.

Her weapons were her crystal eyes
Making every man mad,
Black as the dark night she was
Got what no one else had.

She's got it,
Yeah baby,she's got it
I'm your Venus,
I'm your fire at your desire.
