She smelled like flowers, she
 Tastes like toffee 
She kissed me slowly, she
Held me softly 
Got too close and she
 Backed up off me
Left me stone cold sober just
Like black coffee
Just like black  Coffee 
She told me that she'd always 
Be thinkin' of me
She said she wanted me to know
That she really did love me
She said she never put no one
Else above me
 Except her monkey, she's
Like a junkie 
Just like a junkie, just
Like a junkie 

It was April 25th, it's
Up around 80
 Found a spot out in the park
 Where the grass is shady 
She said her mom's from Jamaica 
Said her father's from Haiti 
Such a pretty lady, she's
Such a lady

She smelled like flowers, she
 Tastes like toffee 
She kissed me slowly, she
Held me softly 
Got too close and she
 Backed up off me
She left me stone cold sober 
Just like black coffee
Just like black coffee, just like
 Black coffee , just like black coffee
