I want to be your Bodhisattva baby

I want to be your Bodhisattva love

I want to have a lotta

Of what it is you gotta

Got to be a Bodhisattva

Oh yes I do - oh yes I do

 

Don't want to be no Pratyeka Buddha baby

Don't want to be no angel in the sky

Don't want to disappear

Just want to volunteer

To be a Bodhisattva

Yes I do - oh yes I do

 

repeat first verse
