Black Girlfriend

This slightly bizarre whimsical ditty fits in with the post-LA-riots theme of the album. It also jibes nicely with remarks Perry Farell was making at the time, saying in essence that intermarriage and miscegenation were the solution to strife over race and ethnicity. If everyone is a light shade of brown, who you gonna discriminate against based on color? I'm sure humanity would find a replacement qualification.

Thanks to Mike Loux for his transcription.

@SONG: Black Girlfriend (4:33) ever since the riots
all i really wanted
was a black girlfriend
they don't play around
they're hard enough
to keep any man in line
        thinking of my pale white skin
        thinking of her dark and smooth
she against me
my black girlfriend

saw her on the corner
where she lived, i asked her
"can you braid my hair?"
she and her girlfriends
laughed at me, said that
"it was easy but it'll cost you some"
        looking out her window
        it's so exciting and foreign
but i'm staying with
my black girlfriend

drivin' thru the hood
in my chevy nova '62
my arm around my
little black girl
people on the corner
looking in my car
wanna do me
but i won't give her back
my little black girl
        "do you wanna come on in?
        do you wanna eat some?
        meet my family?"
my black girlfriend
