"Map to the Treasure" as written by and Laura / Nyro....
Where is your woman?
Gone to Spanish Harlem?
Gone to buy you pastels?

Where is your woman?
Gone to Spanish Harlem?
Gone to buy you books and bells
Beneath Indian summer?

Take my hand now
There is a land now
In the treasure of love.

Jade and coral
Perfume from Siam
In the treasure of love.

To your fingertips
To the summer sunset
In the treasure of love
In the treasure of love, in the treasure of love.

Light the night
Oh, light the night
Come my way
Light the night.

Come to me baby
You got the look that I adore, that I understand
My pretty medicine man
My pretty medicine man
Got pretty medicine in his head
For you I bear down
Soft and burning
In the treasure of love
In the treasure of love
In the treasure of love, love.

Where is your woman?
Gone to Spanish Harlem?
Gone to buy you pastels?

    General CommentRemember that ST:TNG episode, "Hide and Q", in which Riker is given the power of the Q. At one point he materializes a Klingon woman before Worf as a potential mate? Worf declines, and the woman is taken away. Someone asks Worf "is this your idea of sex?" and he replies "This IS sex, but I have no place for it in my life now."

    This song IS sex. The structure of the song is that of sexual intercourse (a venerable tactic; recall side two of Steppenwolf's _Second_, Ravel's _Bolero_, Bob Cook's "Love is a Verb", and probably many others I don't know about--maybe even _Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis_?!), and the lyrics match the music; lazily erotic at first, then increasingly insistent until the climactic cry of "love...", and a recapitulation afterwards (the refractory period?).
