I went looking for trouble and boy - i found her

She's in love with herself - she likes the dark
On her milk white neck - the Devil's mark

Now it's all Hallows Eve - the moon is full
Will she trick or treat - i bet she will
She will - happy halloween - baby

She's got a date at midnight - with Nosferatu
Oh baby, Lilly Munster - ain't got nothing on you

Well when i called her evil - she just laughed
Well cast that spell on me - boo bitch craft

Yeah you wanna go out 'cause it's raining and blowing
You can't go out 'cause your roots are showing
Dye em black - dye em black

Black black black black No. 1
Black black black black No. 1

Little wolf skin boots - and clove cigarettes
An erotic funeral - for witch she's dressed
Her perfume smells like - burning leaves
Everyday is halloween

Yeah you wanna go out 'cause it's raining and blowing
You can't go out 'cause your roots are showing
Dye em black - dye em black

Black black black black No. 1
She dyes em black black black black No. 1

Loving you - loving you - love love loving you was like loving
The dead
Loving you - loving you love love loving you was like - loving
The dead

Loving you was like loving the dead - loving you was like loving
The dead - loving you was like loving the dead
Was like loving the dead - was like loving the dead - was like
Loving the dead

Sacre bleu

Loving you - loving you - love love loving you was like loving
The dead - was like fucking the dead
Loving you was like loving the dead - loving you was like loving
The dead - loving you was like loving the dead - was like loving
The dead
Loving you - loving you - loving you - loving you - loving you -
Loving you
Was like loving the dead
Was like loving the dead
Was like loving the dead

Black black black black No. 1
She dyes it black black black black No. 1

Ooh yeah

Black black black black No. 1
Black black black black No. 1

    Its a his way of writing a sarcastic song on the gothic scene. I'm very familiar with the scene and it's so true what he says "an erotic funeral for which she's dressed" ditto on how gothic girls make black look sexy. Love this song and he's so dead on with his sarcasm

    Peter steele wrote this as a joke about goth girls. Black no 1 is that really dark hair dye color that all 'dark' and 'serious' people seem to dye their hair.
