Crowded House – Black and White Boy Lyrics 12 years ago
This song is about Neil's black and white dalmatian, if you think about the words he has used them not very directly (Like there isn't any words that say "My do is black and white boy") but if you listen to the words it comes together. I have the Farewell To The World DVD and one of the bonus material things is from a channell 7 show and you can see a dog walking around when Neil is playing his guitar!!
