  • I paint my nails black
    I dye my hair a darker shade of brown,
    Because you like your women Spanish, dark, strong and proud.
    I paint the sky black,
    You said if you could have your way,
    You'd make a night time what a day,
    So it suits the mood of your soul
    Ohhh, what can I do?
    Nothing, my sparrow blue

    Ohhhhh, what can I do?
    Life is beautiful,
    But you don't have a clue
    Sun and ocean blue,
    They're magnificent,
    It don't make sense to you

    Black beauty
    Ohhh oh oh
    Black beauty
    Ohhh oh

    I paint the house black,
    My wedding dress black leather, too.
    You have no room for light,
    Love is lost on you.
    I keep my lips red,
    They seem like cherries in the spring.
    Darling, you can't let everything seem so dark blue.

    But, ohhh
    What can I do,
    To turn you on,
    Or get through you?

    Ohhh, what can I do?
    Life is beautiful,
    But you don't have a clue.
    Sun and ocean blue,
    They're magnificent,
    It don't make sense to you.

    Black beauty,
    Ohhhh
    Black beauty,
    Ohhhh

    Black beauty,
    Ohhhh
    Black beauty,
    Ohhhh
    Black bea-u-uty,
    Ohhhh-oh-oh-oh-oh
    Black beauty baby
    Black beauty baby

    Ohhhh what can I do?
    Life is beautiful,
    But you don't have a clue
    Sun and ocean blue,
    They're magnificent,
    It don't make sense to you

    Black beauty,
    Ohhhh
    Black beauty,
    Ohhhh
    Black beauty,
    Ohhhh
    Black beauty,
    Ohhhh Writer/s: BARRY O'NEIL, ELIZABETH GRANT, RICK NOWELS
