Deep Purple

Deep Purple are an English rock band formed in Hertford in 1968. They are considered to be among the pioneers of heavy metal and modern hard rock, although some band members claimed that their music cannot be categorised as belonging to any one genre. They were once listed by the Guinness Book of World Records as "the globe's loudest band", and have sold over 100 million albums worldwide, including 7.5 million certified units in the US. Deep Purple were ranked number 22 on VH1's Greatest Artists of Hard Rock programme. more »

Black suede, don't mean you're good for me 
Black suede, just brings your mystery 
I want to be inside of you 
But you're black and I don't know what to do 

You're a smooth dancer 
But it's alright 
'Cause I'm a freelancer 
And you can never break me though you try 

To make me think you're magical 
Baby, you're the one who can never see the sun 
Because it don't shine nightly 
Don't you look at me because I'm gonna shake free 

You'd better hang on tightly 
You want to rule the world, 
But you're acting like a girl 
Who's got a false pregnancy 
You've swollen up inside 
With nothing but your pride 

And yet you keep on dancing 
Black suede, don't waste your time on me 
Black suede, I sense your mockery 
I tried to go along with you 

But you're black and I know just what to do 
You're a smooth dancer 
But it's alright 
'Cause I'm a freelancer 

And you can never break me though you try 
To make me think you're magical 
I think you're crazy, your two-timing ways 
They don't bother me none 

You'd better do it right because one day or night 
I'm gonna walk to freedom 
You know I loved you once and I want to love again 
But you don't give nothing 

You can see it in my eyes so you've got to realize 
Baby, I ain't bluffing 
Black suede, don't waste your time on me 
Black suede, don't bring me misery 

I tried to be inside of you 
But you're black and now I know what to do 
You're a smooth dancer 
But it's alright 

'Cause I'm a freelancer 
And I can tell you're faking though you try 
To make me think you're magical 
Baby, you're the one who can never see the sun 

Because it don't shine nightly 
Don't you look at me because I'm gonna shake free 
You'd better hang on tightly 
You know I loved you once and I want to love again 

But you don't give nothing 
You can see it in my eyes so you've got to realize 
Baby, I ain't bluffing 
Baby, you can rock 'n' roll 

But you can never show your soul, smooth dancer
