vanilla ice cream lyrics – stephen lynch

have a seat and listen,
please don’t say a thing.
in matters of the heart sometimes,
the truth will have a sting.

just don’t take it personally:
this is no attack.
but we will never last, because i’m white
and you are… also white.

i only like black girls, the brown girls, the café au lait.
oh, caramel girls and mocha girls just blow me away.
if you’re a nubian,
i want you to be in
every fantasy,
but if you’re a whitey,
say nighty-nighty,
you’re just not the girl for me.

oh, i hate vanilla ice cream, i like chocolate instead.
i hope she likes her soul food with a little wonder bread.
don’t call it jungle fever, ’cause that just isn’t right.
i am not a racist: some of my best friends are white.

i just prefer black girls, the brown girls, the café au lait.
oh, caramel girls and mocha girls just blow me away.
if you’re a cracker,
you better get blacker,
or else you best get out.
it is no mystery,
i like a sister, see,
that’s what i’m talkin’ about.

our wedding song will be “ebony and ivory”,
and we’ll sing christmas carols ’round the old kwanza tree.
but color is not the issue here: it’s dignity, it’s cl*ss.
it’s all about her heart. … ok, it’s partly about that *ss!

i want me some black girl, the brown girl, the café au lait.
oh, caramel girls and mocha girls just blow me away.
if you’re a honkey,
you’re singin’ the wrong key,
it’s the honest truth.
the skin that she’s dwellin’ in
must contain melanin:
that is the fountain of youth.
