Black cards in effigy
We sing the song that was grievin'
All dressed like vagabonds
Sharks smell the blood that I'm bleedin'

I know there's something wrong
Might take a fire to kill it
Might take a hurricane
Don't know the life that I'm livin'

Ohh ohh oh, black tambourine
Ohh ohh oh, black tambourine

My baby run to me
She lives in broken-down buildings
Can't pay the rent again
These spider webs are my home now

And when the sun is down
We'll shake and rattle our bodies
To keep it warm at night
My tambourine is still shaking

Ohh ohh oh, black tambourine
Ohh ohh oh, black tambourine

Doo doo doo doo

Black cards in effigy
We sing the song that was grievin'
All dressed like vagabonds
Sharks smell the blood that I'm bleedin'

I know there's something wrong
Might take a fire to kill it
Might take hurricane
Don't know the life that I'm livin'

Black tambourine
Ohh ohh oh, black tambourine

Doo doo doo doo
