"Black Boys On The Corner" as written by and Philip Parris Lynott....
One of the black boys said
"I need none of your pity"
It's your mama that don't
Like you loose in the city

But stick about, take note
Take a tip, take no back lip
Come come a little closer
Let me see you snap your fingertip

Because standing on the corner
Just might suit you or maybe baby
There's something else you wanna do

Like rolling dice, nice
Like shooting pool, hey that's cool

I'm a little black boy and I don't know my place
I'm just a little black boy, I just threw my ace
I'm a little black boy, recognize my face

One of the black boys said
"I'm a giving a warning"
"People been putting me down"
"I'm so tired I'm yawning"

A new suit, pretty boots to boot
And I'm feeling slick
Gonna go to town, look around
And pull a chick

Of course standing on the corner
Might suit you or maybe baby
There's something else that you wanna do

Like playing poker, joker
Like to back a race, ace

I'm a little black boy and I don't know my proper place
I'm a little black boy, get my head in its space
I'm a little black boy, I just play my bass
I'm a little black boy, it's no disgrace
