Black Beauty Lyrics

by Lana Del Rey

I paint my nails black
I dye my hair a darker shade of brown
'Cause you like your women Spanish, dark, strong and proud
I paint the sky black
You said if you could have your way
You'd make a night time all today
So it'd suit the mood of your soul
Oh, what can I do?
Nothing, my sparrow blue

Oh, what can I do?
Life is beautiful, but you don't have a clue
Sun and ocean blue
Their magnificence, it don't make sense to you

Black beauty
Oh
Black beauty
Oh

I paint the house black
My wedding dress black leather, too
You have no room for light
Love is lost on you
I keep my lips red
To seem like cherries in the spring
Darling, you can't let everything
Seem so dark blue

But oh
What can I do
To turn you on
Or get through you?

Oh, what can I do?
Life is beautiful, but you don't have a clue
Sun and ocean blue
Their magnificence, it don't make sense to you

Black beauty
Oh
Black beauty
Oh
Black beauty
Oh
Black beauty
Oh
Black beauty
Oh
Black beauty, baby
Black beauty, baby

Oh, what can I do?
Life is beautiful, but you don't have a clue
Sun and ocean blue
Their magnificence, it don't make sense to you

Black beauty
Oh
Black beauty
Oh
Black beauty
Oh
Black beauty
Oh
