    Your skin's like rich coffee baby, my skin's like cream
    our love is a colour somewhere in between
    and I like my coffee straight, strong, black and hot
    you like yours with cream, with cinnamon on top

    Your skin's like the night sky baby, my skin's like the day
    we go together no matter what they say
    with the stars and the moon you light up my world
    I give you warmth, I'm your sunshine girl

    Your skin's like chocolate baby, my skin's like vanilla
    we face the same blindness, it's all to familiar
    I guess I'm a chocoholic, I just can't get enough
    and you want what I got, vanilla-flavoured love

    Your skin's like ebony baby, my skin's like alabaster
    but your not my slave and I'm not your master
    just like the tree, you stand dark and strong
    just like the rock, I'm yours to lean on


    Your skin's so black baby, my skin's so white
    I've heard people say that our love isn't right
    black goes with white , like a breath goes with air
    you're my black prince, I'm your maiden fair

    To me your skin's colourless, to you so is mine
    don't they say baby, that true love is blind
    we find in each other, the beauty inside
    we love from our hearts, not with our eyes
