Devendra Banhart - Shabop Shalom Lyrics

Shabop Shalom by Devendra Banhart
Our story begins on a sunday afternoon

Just between halfway tree and spanish town

Where a young boy

Not yet the cock o’ the walk that he would soon become,

Was lying on the grass and takin’ in the sweet and sensuous scent of hibiscus

That languidly lilted along the summer breeze

It was at this precise moment that he saw her.

Her walk was soft and delicate with a thaumaturgical touch

That only a rabbi’s daughter could have

Before their eyes had even met

Her luminous lips had already lured him in

Salvation winked with he promise of a briss held at pinnacle

And a congregation of sages bunny hopping and chicken dancing to yiddish mento

Then their eyes linked

An aeon blinked amharic vows were scryed upon their hearts

Just to think this could all be with a frenectomy and a few words of love.

My shabop shalom baby

Won’t you shabop shalom with me

Under the old banana tree

Whoa, whoa

My sweet telavivian lamb‘s bread

My heart can act as an emoliant

And you’ll never ever say

Get bent!

No, no

Todamama todamama

Todamama todamama


Todamama todamama

Todamama todamama


All the signals that i’m sendin i’ll keep sending

And on the constantillionth time

I’ll make you mine

Yes, i swear i will

Your sweet supple breasts are golden ghettos

Soft statues in stilettos

Two wise men instead of three

Blow a kiss just for me

I’m ever in a foul mood

I’ve gotta see you in your talmud

And so happy in makes me

(who who who who who)

You wanna know who

Who wrote the book of jude?

She wants to know who

(who who who who who)

Who wrote the dead sea scrolls?

Well, i did, i did


Yes, i did, i did

I did, i did


I did, i did

Hexakosioi hexekonta hex phobia can be a fun ordeal

I swear by solomon’s seal

Honey, when it comes to love

There’s a fire in the deep bend of my heart

Givin’ me the heeby-geebys

You see

I know the land of wood and water is

Merely fooder for the loves slaughters

And darling, I’ve watched you cake walk to the immaculate conception

For far too long

Walls are wailing

I’m livicated to you

Ahaba raba

Ahaba raba for you

We’re in heaven

We’re in heaven, it’s true

I’m in ascending

I’m ascending tonight with you
