The Princess of Mushrooms is smiling at me,  
And I wonder what she's going to say.  
She has me longing for her company.  
Oh, I hope she will take me away,  
          (la Princesse de los hongos de Palenque).  
  
     With her olivine eyes and the ring in her nose,  
     And her ribbon-wrapped hair and her wild gypsy clothes,  
     And her beauty like madness, all makes me suppose  
     That the Princess of Mushrooms can see  
     That she's welcome to trip out with me.  
  
The Princess of Mushrooms is whom I wait for  
And I wonder what she's going to do.  
There are so many wishes I need magic for,  
Oh, I hope she will make them come true,  
     If she will do   
     What the Princess of Mushrooms can do  
     And she gives me a mushroom to chew...  
  
     Ah-ha, now we have come to it all  
     Essences mixing in time  
     To the tune of the waterfall  
     With the ruins of Palenque above  
     Vibrations all ringing in rhyme  
     To the rhthm of Cosmic Love...  
          or is it all in my mind?  
          and is all this a dream?  
          are things what they seem?  
  
The Princess of Mushrooms has kissed me goodbye,  
She told me that she could not stay.  
But I will remember, and yes, I can try  
To thank her with this music I play.  
la princesse de los hongos de Palenque.  
  
     With her olivine eyes and the ring in her nose,  
     And her ribbon-wrapped hair and her wild gypsy clothes,  
     And her beauty like magic, all makes me suppose  
     That the Princess of Mushrooms can see  
     That I'm happy she tripped out with me.
