[Intro]

A Em A Em A Em A Em

[Verse 1]

A              Em       A                 Em
Have a seat and listen, please don't say a thing
    A              Em                   A              Em
The matters of the heart sometimes, the truth will ever sting
A                 Em           A         Em
Just don't take it personally, this is no attack
    A           Em                  G         D      
   E
But we will never last because I am white and you are...also white

[Chorus]

            A             Em                G         D
I only like black girls the brown girls, the café au lait
A                 Em                G        D
Caramel girls, and mocha girls just blow me away
A                   Em                G         D
If your a nubian, I want you to-be in every fantasy

A                       Em                      G            
       [A] <(FIRST CHORD OF THE INSTRUMENTAL)
But if you're a whitey, say nighty-nighty, your just not the girl for me

[Instrumental]

[A] Em A Em A EmA Em

[Verse 2]

     A            Em                A           Em
Oh I hate vanilla ice cream, I like chocolate instead
  A                  Em               A             Em
I hope she likes her soul food with a little Wonder Bread
      A              Em          A               Em
Don't call it Jungle Fever cause that just isn't right
A          Em                 G    D           E
I am not a racist, some of my best friends are white

[Chorus]

              A                Em               G       D
I just prefer black girls, the brown girls, the café au lait
  A                 Em               G        D
A caramel girls and mocha girls just blow me away.
A                        Em                    G              
  D
If you're a cracker, you better get blacker or else you best get out

A                 Em                  G               
      [A] <(FIRST CHORD OF THE INSTRUMENTAL)
It is no mystery, I like a sister see that's what I'm talkin about

[Instrumental]

[A] Em A Em A EmA Em

[Verse 3]

    A                 Em     A         Em
Our wedding song will be "Ebony and Ivory",
    A                    Em               A          Em
and we'll sing Christmas carols round the old Kwanza tree
    A                Em               A             Em
But color is not the issue here, it's dignity, it's class
     A             Em(PAUSE)         G      D        
 E
It's all about her heart, okay it's partly about that ass

[Chorus]

               A               Em              G        D
I want me some black girl, the brown girl, the café au lait
  A                  Em                G        D
A caramel girls, and mocha girls, just blow me away

A                         Em                    G             

D
If you're a honky, you're singin the wrong key, it's the honest truth

    A                           Em                    G   
    
   D           [A] <(FIRST CHORD OF THE INSTRUMENTAL)
The skin that she's dwellin in, must contain melanin, that is the Fountain of Youth.

asus2 works better rather than A, saw a video of him playing it on the radio and he uses that :)
