"Seven Veils" as written by and Charlie/peden Russell....
She gets grumpy when she doesn't come
She says, "Hey boy you got all the fun"
Then she comes over
With the flowers in her hand
She gets clumsy when she's all alone
I say "baby, there's some things you just don't know"
Then she comes over
And puts her hand upon her heart and says
Oohh you could she her dance the seven veils
Oohh there are only four to fall away
She gets jealous
And asks me "Who was she"
I say "Patience" and put a kiss upon her cheek
Then she comes over
And says, "The two of us should never part"
Oohh you could she her dance the seven veils
Oohh there are only four to fall away
He's the one whose questions go unanswered most the time
Words
Words to keep from falling from her mouth
Even though she was a mirror in her-own time
That wasn't her
You know she was a spy
Oohh you could she her dance the seven veils
Oohh there are only four to fall away
No I won't be coming home this year
Now watch them fall away

    General CommentThe following is a direct quote from an email from stu himself...

    As for Seven Veils, it's a reference to a biblical tale of Salome, daughter of Herodias, who dances for her step-father, a dance involving the removal of seven
    veils, revealing her, pretty much naked, body. Herod, her step father, is so pleased by her dance that he promises her anything she desires. After consulting
    with her mother, she asks for John The Baptist's head on a plate, a man who Herod had imprisoned, but who was not to be killed, as he was greatly revered as a prophet. As he had made such an oath in front of all of his guests, Herod is forced to behead John The Baptist, and Salome's mother gets her wish. I guess the song itself is a metaphor for the games and politics involved in the bedroom.
