It was bad, really mean She had the kind of reputation to make any woman scream Late one night, when it wasn't right And he made a catch and he met his match Black lady, black lady She was mean, really bad She was slender as a cat at night, she made the men go mad Well her eyes were green and her skin was soft And the lady's heart was as hard as rock Black lady, oh black lady You better beware, better beware Better beware, better beware, better beware, better beware You better beware, you better beware, ware Black lady's out to get you now Better beware, better beware, better beware, better beware Well he tried to fight it, tried to win But no matter where the poor man turned, the lady halted him Her wish was his command, his life in her hands And the death was slow 'cause she won't let go Oh, black lady, that black lady She tried to win, tried to buy She was all over him 'cause he played all the cards just right He laid out his hand like a winning man With a smile so deep, she put him into a sleep And you know she won Oh black lady, black lady You better beware, you better beware Ware, ware, ware, ware, ware, Ware, ware, ware, ware, ware, ware Black lady, you better beware Black lady, black lady, black lady, lady Well she tried to fight it, she just tried to win Black lady, you better beware Better beware, better beware, better beware, better beware
