Black and white boy
 Black and white boy
You're so extreme 
You're so confused 
I'm coloring in
 Whatever mood I'm in
I could be still 
In touch with you

And you're full of the wondrous spring
It's all sweetness and lightness you bring 
And a room full of people fallto your infinite charm
But when darkness should quickly descend
You go quietly, my miserable friend
To the depths of despair you will crawl  Black and white boy

 Black and white boy
 Black and white boy
You're so extreme 
You're so confused 
I'm coloring in
 Whatever mood I'm in
I could be still 
In touch with you

When you shake off the shadows of night 
And your eyes are so clear and so bright 
You'll make fools of the liars and creeps 
Put a rose in my cheeks 
But when demons have climbed on your back
You are vicious and quick to attack 
And you put on a wonderful show
Do you really, really think I don't know?
 Black and white boy

And you run like a cat to the cream 
And you're acting so nice it's obscene 
You put on a wonderful show
Do you really, really think I don't know?
 Black and white boy
