Have a seat and listen please don't say a thing
In matters of the heart sometimes the truth will have a sting
Just don't take it personally, this is no attack
But we will never last because I am white and you are also white

I only like black girls, the brown girls, the cafe au lait
Caramel girls and mocha girls just blow me away
If you are Nubian I want you to be in every fantasy
But if you're a whitey, say nighty nighty
You're just not the girl for me...

I hate vanilla ice cream, I like chocolate instead
I hope she likes her soul food with a little Wonder Bread
Don't call it jungle fever 'cause that just isn't right
I am not racist, some of my best friends are white

I just prefer black girls, the brown girls, the cafe au lait
Caramel girls and mocha girls just blow me away
If you're a cracker, you better get blacker
or else you best get out
It is no mystery I like a sister, see
That's what I'm talking about

Our wedding song will be Ebony & Ivory
and we'll sing Christmas carols 'round the old Kwanzaa tree
but color is not the issue here, it's dignity, it's class
It's all about her heart; okay, it's partly about that ass

I want me some black girls, the brown girls, the cafe au lait
Caramel girls and mocha girls just blow me away
If you're a honky, you're singing the wrong key
It's the honest truth
The skin that she's dwellin' must contain melanin
That is the fountain of youth

    General CommentEasily the greatest chorus in Stephen's discography and probably one of my favourite tracks by him, both musically and lyrically. Wonderful song.

    General CommentIs his interest only pertain to black women, or other dark-skinned women as well?
