Feelin' light and low
Like nothin I've felt before
My woman is black, but now she's blue
And I'm wonderin just what to do
(the day is new)

A motor-city love affair
In the heat of the night
A woman dark and debonair
Too hard to resist
The moment you've kissed

Feelin' good, feelin' down
Repercussions of a heavy heart
(torn apart)

The summer night is hot
But soon turns cold
Like a winter's song
(when something's wrong)

Oh lady black! please don't be blue
Wash the midnight with the morning dew
(the day is new)
