    Whoa Black Betty, bambalam
    Whoa Black Betty, bambalam

    Shes from Birmingham, bambalam
    Way down in Alabama, bambalam
    The way she shake that thing, bambalam
    Oh she make me sing, bambalam

    Whoa Black Betty, bambalam
    Whoa Black Betty, bambalam

    She really get me high, bambalam
    You know thats no lie, bambalam
    Shes so rock steady, bambalam
    Oh shes always ready, bambalam

    Whoa Black Betty, bambalam
    Whoa Black Betty, bambalam
    Whoa Black Betty, bambalam
    Whoa Black Betty, bambalam

    *Electronicish Vocal Interlude*

    Oh Black Betty, bambalam
    Oh Black Betty, bambalam

    Black Betty had a child, bambalam
    She swears its mine, bambalam
    She must be out of her mind, bambalam
    She must think I'm blind, bambalam

    Oh Black Betty, bambalam
    Oh Black Betty, bambalam
    Oh Black Betty, bambalam
    Oh Black Betty, bambalam

    *Electronic Vocal Interlude*

    Monday she got me arrested,
    On Tuesday up in jail,
    Wednesday my trail was attested,
    Thursday she posted my bail,
    Friday we went walking,
    Saturday I was outta my door,
    On Sunday we was talkin,
    Back on Monday she pawned all my clothes

    Whoa Black Betty, bambalam
    Whoa Black Betty, bambalam

    Shes from Birmingham, bambalam
    Way down in Alabama, bambalam
    The way she shake that thing, bambalam
    Oh she make me sing, bambalam

    Whoa Black Betty, bambalam
    Whoa Black Betty, bambalam

    She really get me high, bambalam
    You know thats no lie, bambalam
    Shes so rock steady, bambalam
    Oh shes always ready, bambalam

    Whoa Black Betty, bambalam
    Whoa Black Betty, bambalam
    Whoa Black Betty, bambalam
    Whoa Black Betty, bambalam

    *Electronic Vocal Interlude*

    Whooooa Black Betty!
