The Lyrics

in the mornin', i went huntin'
for a first class plastic surgeon
and at first, he thinks i'm funnin'
and he's puzzled by my order
for my skin tone, i'd like changin'
from my head down to my feet
with my features, rearrangin'
just to make the look complete, yeah

goin' black...whack !
darken my skin
my lips more round and brown
goin' black...whack !
darken my skin

well, my nose will be much wider
and my hair requires some bend
i'll look good for a first timer
i am sure to fool my friends
and my threads will be all wild ones
my white duds just brought me sorrow
i'll be stridin' and a-jivin'
when i hit the streets tomorrow, yeah

goin' black...whack !
darken my skin
my lips more round and brown
goin' black...whack !
darken my skin

make it dark as you can make it
so i'm not a pale skinned man
you can dye or paint or bake it
i will leave it in your hands
your black art will make you money
and i'm rich so i am able
i will get a foxy honey
and a coat made out of sable, yeah

goin' black...whack !
darken my skin
my lips more round and brown
goin' black...whack !
darken my skin
