In the shadows of the dark night,
You need a woman by your side
She'll help you make it in the cold light 
And keep you warm an' satisfied 

If you want some more lovin'
 Drive you out of your mind
Give a little sweetness and sugar 
Just make it sure she understands 

 White skin women keep me howlin' for more
 Brown skin honey, I love

Got a Whitesnake mama
You want to shake it mama
Got a Whitesnake mama
Come an' let it crawl on you,
Just enough to see ya through 

You want to find a little angel
 Sweet surrender in her eyes 
 Broke down heart through morning 
To the moon is on the rise

 Night time is the right time
For rolling on the silent gloves
Daytime, nighttime, anytime is the right time
Stealin' round and makin' some love

 White skin women keep me howlin' for more
 Brown skin honey, I love

Got a Whitesnake mama
You want to shake it mama
Got a Whitesnake mama
Come an' let it crawl on you,
Just enough to see ya through 

 Listen 

Back door man ain't done nothing,
But creep around the door..
When you see his woman weepin'
You know the snake is there for more

Day time, night time is the right time
For rolling on the silent gloves
 Night time is the right time
Make it sure you're the only one

 White skin women keep me howlin' for more
 Brown skin honey, I love

Got a Whitesnake mama,
You want to shake it mama
Got a Whitesnake mama
Come an' let it crawl on you,
And you, and you

Got a Whitesnake mama (endless repeat)
