Lyrics

I paint my nails black,
I dye my hair a darker shade of brown,
'Cause you like your women,
Spanish, dark, strong and proud.

You paint the sky black,
You said if you could have your way,
You'd make a nighttime world today,
So it'd suit the mood of your soul.

Oh, what can I do?
Nothing my sparrow, blue.

Oh, what can I do?
Life is beautiful,
But you don't have a clue.
Sun and ocean, blue,
That magnificence,
It don't make sense to you.

Black beauty, oh-oh-oh-oh,
Black beauty, oh-oh-oh-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,
To seem like cherries in the spring.
Darling, you can't let everything,
Seem so dark blue.

Oh, what can I do,
To turn you on or get through you?

Oh, what can I do?
Life is beautiful,
But you don't have a clue.
Sun and ocean, blue,
That magnificence,
It don't make sense to you.

Black beauty, oh-oh-oh-oh,
Black beauty, oh-oh-oh-oh.

Black beauty, oh-oh-oh-oh,
Black beauty, oh-oh-oh.
Black beauty, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh,
Black beauty, baby, black beauty, baby.

Oh, what can I do?
Life is beautiful,
But you don't have a clue.
Sun and ocean, blue,
That magnificence,
It don't make sense to you.

Black beauty, oh-oh-oh-oh,
Black beauty, oh-oh-oh-oh.
Black beauty, oh-oh-oh-oh,
Black beauty, oh-oh-oh-oh.
