Your eyes have cast a spell, Agnes,
The doom of a village is nigh,
It is not only the male that stare,
Even the female have a share,
Where have you come from, Agnes?
The sun, the moon, or the sea?
Whichever place it might be,
I bet it it is adorned with your kind.
Under your spell, Agnes,
There are others like me,
Tell them where your kinds abound.
Let them lust after them but not you,
A jealous victim you will say I am.
Your spell-laden eyes are hypnotising,
The curve of your lips are inviting,
Come to me, Agnes, come to me,
And never break this spell, never!
