My Mama rides a lion
My Dad wears ashes and snakes
My Mama is a warrior
She kills demons in Her play
My Daddy has the power
And He likes Her this way
I call them day and night
I never leave their sight
Singing Om Shakti Om Shakti Om

My Mama lets Her hair hang loose
My Dad likes to sit still
Watching Mama scream and dance gives Him such a thrill
My Mama drinks from a skull cup
You got any demons
She’ll sip them up
They live up on the mountain
They’re the Eternal Fountain
Om Shakti Om Shakti Om
My Mama and my Dad
They are mad
They are mad
Singin Om Shakti Om Shakti Om

    General Comment"My Mama rides the Lion" refers to Kali Ma and her vehicle, a lion

    "My Dad wears ashes and snakes" refers to Shivaji who wears ashes as a symbol of the end of the physical universe and snakes as a symbol of Lord Shiva's yogic power. Like a yogi, snakes don't hoard anything, and can live with very little in nature.

    "My Mama is a warrior - she kills demons in her play" refers to Kali Ma's warrior nature (She is wrath deified)

    "I call them day and night" refers to Shivaji's shining, naked body and Kali Ma's dark skin

    "They live up on the mountain" refers to Lord Shiva's residence on the top of Mount Kailash with Parvati (Kali Ma is Parvati's dark side)
