"Taste Of India" as written by Glen Ballard, Joe Perry and Steven Tyler....
God I love the sweet taste of India
Lingers on the tip of my tongue
Gotta love the sweet taste of India
Blame it on the beat of the drum

God I love the sweet taste of India
Lingers on the tip of my tongue
Gotta know that what's gotten into you
Any cat man do when it's done

Yeah, she's got that kind of love incense
That lives in her back room
And when it mixes with the funk my friend
It turns into perfume

When you are born
You're afraid of the darkness
Then you're afraid of the light
But I'm not afraid
When I dance with my shadow

This time I'm gonna get it right
To think of what I'll get tonight
Just lookin' for a little taste
(A Taste Of India)
She'll steal the smile right off your face

Her Yin and Yang
Is just the thing
She's unpredictable my friend

God I love the sweet taste of India
Lingers on the tip of my tongue
Gotta know that what's gotten into you
Any cat man do when it's done

It's like your first taste, love, of vindaloo
That sets your heart on fire
And if you let her stuff get into you
It will be all that you desire

When you make love to
A sweet tantric priestess
You drink in the bliss of delight
But I'm not afraid
When I dance with her shadow

This time I'm gonna get it right
She's gonna wake my appetite
Just lookin' for a little taste
(A Taste Of India)
She'll steal the smile right off your face

She a friend of mine
She a concubine
The sweetest wine
I gotta make her mine

God I love the sweet taste of India
Lingers on the tip of my tongue
Gotta love the sweet taste of India
Blame it on the beat of the drum

God I love the sweet taste of India
Lingers on the tip of my tongue
Gotta know that what's gotten into you
Any cat man do when it's done

Just think of what I'll get tonight
She's gonna wake my appetite
Just lookin' for a little taste
(A Taste Of India)
She'll steal the smile right off your face

Yow, yow...

    General CommentYes, it's about sex, but to be a bit more specific, think about the shape of India. That's all I'm saying.

    General CommentThunderbolt is a dumb ass. Vishnu is a god and not goddess. He is married with Laxmi (the goddess)

    General CommentLol, it's blatantly about sex, I think it's just about sex with an Indian woman. Although he just uses her for the sex, hence 'concubine', and 'Just looking for a little taste'

    Not a big fan of this song I must say, but posting my comment nonetheless.

    General CommentThis song has an awesome arrangement. I love the ties with actual Hindu music and the pitch in the guitars.

    General CommentI'm indian, and I love the song. The guitar and bass is amazing. But I think steven sometimes goes a little bit too far with his lyrics 'sexually'. But the innuendoes are funny.

    General CommentHey, guys. I love all your comments, but the meaning is actually here: en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/… I actually believed it to be about sex or a drug as well. But, yeah here is the simple meaning. Weird huh. I fell in love with this song right away when I got the CD in 1997. There is just something about it. The lyrics are very poetic. Aerosmith's music is usually very poetic anyhow. Theyes take risks as a band that other artists have been too afraid to do. They are my favorite band.
