Come on along with the Black Rider
We'll have a gay old time
Lay down in the web of the black spider
I'll drink your blood like wine

So, come on in it
Ain't no sin take
Take off your skin
And dance around in your bones

Come on along with the Black Rider
We'll have a gay old time

Anchors away with the Black Rider
I'll drink your blood like wine
I'll drop you off in Harlem with the Black Rider
Out where the bullets shine

So, come on in it
Ain't no sin
Take off your skin
And dance around in your bones

Come on along with the Black Rider
We'll have a gay old time

Come on along with the Black Rider
I want your company
Come on along with the Black Rider
I've got just the thing for thee

I'll have the veal life
A lovely meal
That's how I feel
May I use your skull for a bowl?

Come on a along with the Black Rider

We'll have a gay old
We'll have a gay old
We'll have a gay old
We'll have a gay old

We'll have a gay old
We'll have a gay old
We'll have a gay old time
