Verse 1:
I dig the black girls, oh so much more than the white girls
I was so pleased to learn they were faster
yeah guess guess guess guess guess who I'm after
Along comes little faggot white boy
Said look, look, look first kind of joy
They come around so queer and quiet
but inside rebel and riot
Shall I dig the white boys
so much more that the black boys
I was so pleased to learn they're not smarter
Go on, give, give, give it to me harder, harder, harder, just say harder

Verse 2: (drums only)
You know I love the Lord of hosts
the Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost
I was so pleased to learn that he's inside me
In my time of trouble he will hide me
(other instruments enter)
I dig the black girls
I dig the black girls
I dig the black girls
I dig the black girls
