Sand And Foam Lyrics

Artist: Donovan

SAND AND FOAM
Donovan


The sun was going down behind a tattoo tree
And the simple act of an oar's stroke put diamonds in the
sea
And all because of the phosphorus there in quantity
As I dug you digging me in Mexico

There in the Valley of Scorpio beneath the cross of jade
Smoking on a seashell pipe the gypsies had made
We sat and we dreamed awhile of smugglers bringing wine
That crystal-thought time in Mexico

Sitting in a chair of bamboo sipping grenadine
Straining my eyes for a surfacing submarine
Kingdoms of ants walk across my feet
I'm a-shaking in my seat in Mexico

Grasshoppers creaking in the velvet jungle night
Microscopic circles in the fluid of my sight
Watching a black-eyed native girl cut and trim the lamp
Valentino vamp in Mexico

The sun was going down behind a tattoo tree
And the simple act of an oar's stroke put diamonds in the
sea
And all because of the phosphorus there in quantity
As I dug you digging me in Mexico

This seems more correct:

"Watching a black-eyed native girl cut and trim the lawn
Valentino bound in Mexico"

Alvaro's version indeed seems more approriate but what does the second line mean?. Either explain or translate into French! Thanks Alvaro anyway. Where in this world do you live?
