Black maybe or maybe
It's just what you say
Black maybe or maybe
This is just your colour for today
You've seen the way they've done your boy
And the boy's still down
After three hundred years
Black maybe you better come around

Black maybe or maybe
You just talkin' trash
Black maybe yeah or maybe
Your colour I better not ask
You've seen the way they done your boy
And the boy's still crying
For days in and days out
Black woman you better
Wash your man's tears away

Maybe you're red, or
Maybe you're green
But your real colour
I've never seen
Oh oh black maybe or maybe
You're just talkin' trash
Tell me black maybe
Or really would you rather for me not to ask
You see the time is running out
And your man's been sad
For ages and ages and ages
Black maybe it's time for you to wake up
Come around, come around
