Black Velvet

In the style of

Alannah Myles

Lyrics

mm mm mm mm
mm mm mm hmm
mm mm hmm mm

mississippi
in the middle of
a dry spell
jimmie rodgers
on the victrola
up high

mama's dancin'
with baby
on her shoulder
the sun is settin' like
molasses in the sky

the boy could sing
knew how to move
everything
always wanting more
he'd leave you
longing for

black velvet
in that
little boy smile
black velvet
with that
slow southern style

a new religion
that'll bring ya
to your knees
black velvet
if you please

up in memphis
the music's
like a heat wave
white lightnin'
bound to
drive you wild

mama's baby
is in the heart of
every schoolgirl
love me tender
leaves 'em
cryin' in the aisle

the way he moved
it was a sin
so sweet and true
always wanting more
he'd leave you
longing for

black velvet
in that
little boy smile
black velvet
in that
slow southern style

a new religion
that'll bring ya
to your knees
black velvet
if you please

every word
of every song
that he sang
was for you
hoo hoo hoo ooh
ooh ooh ooh ooh

in a flash
he was gone
it happened so soon
what could you do

black velvet
in that
little boy smile
black velvet
in that
slow southern style

a new religion
that'll bring ya
to your knees
black velvet
if you please

black velvet
in that
little boy smile
black velvet
in that
slow southern style

a new religion
that'll bring ya
to your knees
black velvet
if you please

if you please

if you please
if you please
mm mm hmm mm mm
mm mm hmm mm mm
