I’ve got a #Black heart
So don’t you mess with me baby
All #Black suit
With the #Blacked out shades
#BLACKVelvet on the sheets
‘Cos she likes the feel baby
I’m the deepest shade of #Schwarz
All #Black everything

Mystery and power
At the midnight hour
I’m stealthy like the Raven
With a bite like the #BlackMamba
Cool and in control
The origins of Soul
I embody elegance
So don’t dictate my role

#Black cat, no #BlackPanther
Prepare yourself ‘cos I’m coming atcha
#Black on #Black hat, tilt that to the side
Patent leather shoes you can watch me glide
#Black ice, no #BlackDiamonds
I’m ‘bout unleash my inner tribesman
I’m not French but, I’ve got a thing for #Noir…


Smooth like oil
Ancient blood so royal
Now I know my history
I’ll never slave or toil
I move like a Ninja
To the beats of #Africa
Infectious is my rhythm
Shake your body faster

#Black wheels, no #BlackFerrari
I got the strength of a #Zulu army
#Black on #Black shirt with the #Ebony tie,
Keep looking into my #Charcoal eyes
#Black jet, no #BlackSpaceship
Take you into orbit, I’ll arrange it
I’m not French but, I’ve got a thing for #Noir…


Dance with me through the #Black night
(Its gonna get #Black tonight)
I’ll show you everything under the moonlight
(I can be your dark delight…)
I’m feeling like the Dark Knight…
So jump in my #Batmobile,
And I’ll take you for a ride…

Tribal Skank it,
Harlem Shake
Pop it, drop it
Make no mistakes
Welcome to the black groove
Let me see your black moves
I wanna see your black moves
Let me see your black moves

Martin Luther,
Malcolm X,
Michael Jackson,
Better than the rest
It’s Mr. Richards,
Giving you #BLACKVelvet
I’m smooth like #BLACKVelvet
The deepest #Black
