Mama, mama, here come Doctor Dark
Horse clippin', clappin' 'n his ol' hooves makin' sparks
Black leather lady Lord carried her bags
The hell horn, hell horn, hell horn

Horn rim crimped
Glasses look out on the pale hell bent
Moon milk run
O' lady go home

Lord they done cookin' done
Black lady
Black leather lady
Done had a white, white, white poor son

Mama, mama, here come Doctor Dark
Horse clippin', clappin' 'n his ol' hooves makin' sparks
Gotta git me who I want to
God, Lord knows I've got to oh see that Doctor Dark

Mama, mama, here come Doctor Dark
Horse clippin', clappin' 'n his ol' hooves makin' sparks
Shed a tear on the meadow lark 'n like
Tear t' drink

T' brush away
'N tear apart 'n black 'n white 'n like
Tear t' drink t' brush away
'N tear apart 'n black 'n white 'n like

The moon a pail of milk spilled down black in the night
Little girl lost a tear
'N her kite
T' the night 'n like 'n light

God, Lord knows I've got to oh see that Doctor Dark

    General CommentLove this song. Listen to it with headphones, and in parts you can hear the horse clippin and clappin - the percussion sounds exactly like a horse's canter in some parts .. genius
