Bananarama: Venus (1986)



British pop group Bananarama perform “Venus” in this official 1986 music video; the song was written in 1969 by Robbie van Leeuwen of the Dutch band Shocking Blue. In Roman mythology, Venus is the goddess of love, sex, beauty and fertility—a counterpart to the Greek goddess, Aphrodite. The band is considered the most successful all-female group in pop history.


Venus
By Robbie van Leeuwen

Goddess on the mountain top
Burning like a silver flame
The summit of beauty and love
And Venus was her name

She's got it
Yeah baby, she's got it
I'm your Venus, I'm your fire
At your desire
Well, I'm your Venus, I'm your fire
At your desire

Her weapons were her crystal eyes
Making every man mad
Black as the dark night she was
Got what no one else had, wah

She's got it
Yeah baby, she's got it
I'm your Venus, I'm your fire
At your desire
Well, I'm your Venus, I'm your fire
At your desire

(Venus)

She's got it
Yeah baby, she's got it
I'm your Venus, I'm your fire
At your desire
Well, I'm your Venus, I'm your fire
At your desire

Goddess on the mountain top
Burning like a silver flame
The summit of beauty and love
And Venus was her name, wow

She's got it
Yeah baby, she's got it
I'm your Venus, I'm your fire
At your desire
Well, I'm your Venus, I'm your fire
At your desire

(Venus was her name)

Yeah baby she's got it
Yeah baby she's got it
Yeah baby she's got it
Yeah baby she's got it
