The Lyrics

i said, "no way"...but you hung around
and bothered me every night
so then i finally went out with you
my dear mom won't find this so nice

my boyfriend's black...and i'm gonna be in trouble
hey, ma..hey, boyfriend's black
when she sees you comin', better cut out on the double
hey, ma..hey, boyfriend's black
she thinks colored guys are trashy, its true
hey, ma..hey, boyfriend's black
so look out now..she's gonna wanna murder you
hey, ma..hey, boyfriend's black

hey...her fists will be a flyin'
and...inside, she will be dyin'

we've been havin' fun and that ain't no crime
hey, ma..hey, boyfriend's black
i'm not sure she's gonna like you in time
hey, ma..hey, boyfriend's black
one can't help...their color skin, when they're born
hey, ma..hey, boyfriend's black
and its kinda be showin' scorn
hey, ma..hey, boyfriend's black mom's some sort of cretin
and...i'm sure to get a beatin'

you're just the same as a lighter colored guy
you're a black't my mama be surprised
ah-ooooooh...bigotry !

my boyfriend's black...this won't wreck my reputation
hey, ma..hey, boyfriend's black
i guess my mom will have to deal with her frustration
hey, ma..hey, boyfriend's black

hey...i can see her comin''d better start a-runnin'

bigotry !

my boyfriend's black...but that's no cause for excitation
ma...hey boyfriend's black
ma...hey boyfriend's black

I've had this same title in my head for years, but couldn't progress. Now I don't need to. Great job.555

Methinks it's not the color of the skin, but the gender of the friend... ;-)

The girl and the boy are both idiots. She is fueled by hatred of her mother. He's riding on her hatred of Ma. Does anybody here love anybody? And is the mother's beef the guy's color, or the fear that her daughter has no humility and will bring a iife into the world just because she can, and by then daughter's craving to control someone will find an object in poor Junior, because Mr. Man of Color STILL doesn't want to be a slave, even to a white girl, and it all goes 'round. Yes, the ballad is an outstanding appeal to the poplar culture to Listen To Your Mother because nobody will ever love you more. Can you imagine someone singing "Hey now, hey now, my boyfriend's white!"? Thank you, Alvin, for showing us something of the ugly side of teen rebellion.

How 'bout: My boyfriend's black; the kids are gonna be mulatto. (Hey, Ma, hey Ma, my boyfriend's black). My mom's so pissed they're gonna grow up in the ghetto (Hey, Ma, etc.) Whatcha think?
