The boy could soon know how to move everything, Always wanting more, he'd leave you longing for.



Chorus:

A                    D
Black Velvet in that little boy's smile.

A                         F             C
Black velvet in with that slow southern style.

A                     D
A new religion that'll bring you to your knees,

F        E              
Black velvet, if you please.
