See a black Eldorado
Oh, rolling along down below my window
That black girl in the back looks pretty good

Christ! She's beautiful
Know how soft she is?
Just what you feel like

Oh, I'm so far away from her
Jesus, this is Iggy

You, you might as well come with me
When you ride the ride
There's talk and I don't wanna talk

Oh mamma, I shot myself down
Oh mamma, I shot myself down
Oh mamma, I shot myself down
Oh mamma [Incomprehensible], I tell you, I shot myself down

They're stepping on our hearts
Stepping on our hearts
I don't know why they're stepping on our hearts
Stepping on our hearts

Damn, I don't know why
They're stepping on our hearts
Stepping on our hearts
Stepping on our hearts
Stepping on our hearts
Stepping on our hearts

Can't you see?
Oh no, stepping on our hearts

How come the blacks, how come they
They copy you so good?
They get off on you so sexually
If you wanna make it

Young man, you gotta make somebody come
Come out of your black
Come out of your black

Black and strong and black
Black and strong and black
Strong, black

Jesus, it's cold in this room, it's really cold
You know, I never, I never told you about this but there's one guy
Somebody I really love, he's never around

Well, he's taken things that could be alright, that could be nice
And he make him so ugly, so damn ugly
And we put out the lights on them

Yeah, we'd make it dark, we put out the lights on them
It's idiots like you that screw me up
I know there's nothing to you

And I don't know why I treat you so kind
Come down and dance with me, dance with me
You got nobody left but me
Oh accept me, don't reject me, don't forget me

Mamma, what color will the lights be?
Will they turn blue on me?
Mamma, what color will the lights be?
Will they turn blue on me?

Mamma, I shot myself up
Whoa mamma, I shot myself up
Mamma, I shot myself up up up up up

Mamma, I shot myself up, down, up, down
Mamma, oh oh oh oh oh
Mamma, I didn't know what I was doing
And I didn't mean to but I did it, I shot myself up
