I paint my nails black
I dye my hair a darker shade of brown
'Cause you like your women spanish, dark, strong and proud
I paint the sky black
You said if you could have your way
You'd make it nighttime all today
So it'd suit the mood with your song

Oh, what can I do?
Nothing, my sparrow blue
Oh, what can I do
Life is beautiful
But you don't have a clue
Sun and ocean blue
Their magnificence, it don't make sense to you

Black beauty
Oh x2

I paint the house black
My wedding dress black leather too
You have no room for light
Love is lost on you
I keep my lips red
They seem like cherries in the spring
Darling you can't let everything seem so dark blue

But oh, what can I do?
Nothing, my sparrow blue
Oh, what can I do
Life is beautiful
But you don't have a clue
Sun and ocean blue
Their magnificence, it don't make sense to you

Oh x5
Black beauty baby x2

Oh, what can I do
Life is beautiful
But you don't have clue
Sun and ocean blue
Their magnificence, it don't make sense to you

Black beauty
Oh x4
