Alannah Myles
Black Velvet

Mississippi in the middle of a dry spell
Jimmy Rogers on the victrola up high
Mama`s dancing with baby on her shoulder
The Sun is setting like molasses in the sky.
The boy could sing, knew how to move, everything.
Always wanting more, he`d leave you longing for.

CHORUS:Black velvet and that little boy smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that`ll bring you to your knees
Black velvet if you please.

Up in Memphis the music`s like a heat wave
White lightning, 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.

CHORUS:Black velvet and that little boy smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that`ll bring you 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?

CHORUS:
Black velvet and that little boy smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that`ll bring you to your knees
Black velvet if you please.
Black velvet and that little boy smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that`ll bring you to your knees
Black velvet if you please.
If you please
If you please
