I want to be black
Have natural rhythm
Shoot twenty feet of jism, too
And **** up Jews
I want to be black
I want to be a Panther

Have a girlfriend named Samantha
And have a stable of foxy whores
Oh I want to be black

[Chorus:]
I don't want to be a ****ed up, middle class,
College student anymore
I just want to have a stable of foxy little whores
