When I see your face like the mornin sun you spark me to shine
Tell all the world, my need is fulfilled and that's a new design
As long as you're near, there is no fear of a victory
But when I'm away, influences stray my mind to disagree
I wanna see your face in the morning sun ignite my energy
The cause and effect of you has brought new meaning in my life to me

Gonna tell a story morning glory all about the serpentine fire
Gonna tell a story morning glory all about the serpentine fire

oh yeah oh yeah oh yeah, oh yeah oh yeah oh yeah
I need to see your face like the morning sun ignite my energy
The cause and effect of you has brought new meaning in my life to me
The moments I find when I'm inclined to do my best
Negative wins when I give in and then I lose the test (not many times)

Gonna tell a story morning glory all about the serpentine fire
Surely as life begun, you will as one battle with the serpentine fire

oh yeah oh yeah oh yeah, oh yeah oh yeah oh yeah
Surely as life begun, you will as one battle with the serpentine fire
Surely as life begun, you will as one battle with the serpentine fire
Gonna tell a story morning glory all about the serpentine fire

    General Commentthis is a song of praise to the Sun..

    if you read between the lines and study the lyrics and imagery of Earth Wind & Fire, its pretty obvious that Maurice White was practicing and infusing Masonic credos and beliefs into EWFs music and imagery...

    General CommentWell interesting enough, Philip Baily said in an interview Serpentine Fire was a song nobody understood but Maurice White, "Because we didn't know what the heck Serpentine Fire was." They probably still don't know what Serpentine Fire means.

    At the time, Maurice visited South America and was influenced by Brazilian rhythms which you can definitely hear in "Serpentine Fire." Maybe there's some connection there?
