She sits there in her room Listening to The Cure She’s there on her own With her headphones on Her little sis storms in: she wants to know more She streams, she screens: she wants to know more She says ‘Black is beautiful’ She says it’s not even a colour She says ‘Black is beautiful’ She says it’s not even a colour She heads straight from school To embrace subculture With Doc Martens boots and a Niggy Tardust tee-shirt on She gets dirty looks from all the other girls Who do wonder what is wrong with her She says ‘Black is beautiful’ They say it’s not even a colour She says ‘Black is beautiful’ They say it’s not even a colour Her folks think she is demented Her folks think she’s been abducted By the white white white white white white noise By the white white white white white white noise They say ‘Black is beautiful’ She says it’s not even a colour They say ‘Black is beautiful’ She says it’s not even a colour It’s not even a colour, it’s not even a colour She digs the vibe of Wesley Willis She feels his stress on neurosis Bad Brains: she gains, she gets, she rates Bad Brains: she gains, she gets, she rates They say ‘Black is Beautiful’ : It’s not even a colour They say ‘Black is Beautiful’ : It’s not even a colour It’s not even a colour, it’s not even a colour Have you ever felt this way?

Hum, hum, hum To say, to say… ‘I know, I know, I know, I know’ ‘I know, I know, I know, I know’ ... ‘BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL'
