Long Black Nylons, Long Black Nylons, 5inch heels and flowing curves,
That’s the way that, I discovered some were boys and some were girls.

In the village I remember when we kids, were in our teens, everybody looked
Alike there, in their boots and tight blue jeans.

Till a salesman from the city dropped around there once or twice and he
Changed our little village, with his fancy merchandise.

Long Black Nylons, Long Black Nylons 5inch heels and flowing curves, that’s
The way that, I discovered some boys and some were girls.

Just imagine when I found out, freckle Joe was Suzy Brown and the guy I
Used to fight with, was the cutest girl in town.

Some looked better in a sweater, some looked best in taylored clothes, but
They all looked ring ding dinga in those Long Black Nylon hose.

Oh those nylons Long Black Nylons how they cut those dungarees, never knew
That girls had ankles and those dreamy dimpled knees.

It was dullsville in our village, till things took a different shape, now
The cats all call it wigsville, since those nylons drove us ape.

Long Black Nylons, oh yes, Long Black Nylons, 5inch heels and flowing
Curves, that’s the way that I discovered some were boys and some were
Girls.
