Alannah Myles “Black Velvet”

Mississippi in the middle of a dry spell
Jimmy Rogers 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 and that little boy’s 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 heatwave
White lightening, bound to drive you wild
Mama’s baby’s in the heart of every school girl
“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 and that little boy’s smile
    Black velvet with 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
In a flash he was gone, it happened so soon, what could you do?

    Black velvet and that little boy’s smile
    Black velvet with that slow southern style
    A new religion that’ll bring ya to your knees
    Black velvet if you please

    Black velvet and that little boy’s smile
    Black velvet with 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
