[Chorus] Black, you are my enemy And I cannot get close to thee Our life is ruled by enmity And I can't weaken that The only way that I can see Is to hold you close to me To love you for it's meant to be I weaken your attack Everything was lucked and downy What was good was up from under Until black, that awful tender Came and popped my sense of wonder All at once all eyes turned at him Leaving me an unwatched body And it sagged, my body's rib cage Out from under ogler's study Black was decomposing quickly This was found offensive to me His disrespect for life's proprieties Made me scared he would destroy me [Chorus] So I thought I'd try to cut him Try to force him 'neath my level The only way to equal to him Would be hit him with a shovel But to really rise above him That would be the final evil So instead I asked the sucker If he'd care to see my rooms And as a friend and as a comrade And all the things that these implied I made him leave what it was that he had Used to keep us unallied Black, you are my enemy And I cannot get close to thee Our life is ruled by enmity And I can't weaken that The only way that I can see Is to hold you close to me To love you for it's meant to be I weaken your attack Now black and I we are together Fairly just inseparable And in the terriblest of weather Our bonds are incorruptible [Chorus]
