Blackpatch Songtext
Invitations to my party

send Jones an inviting card

he got his meanstreak from the gutter

got his kindness from God

Now tugboats paint the river

carry coal to the city

and white-deck liners

happiness on the uptown side

at my party in the morningtide

ooh la la la blackpatch

clothespins on wash ropes

window to window tie

socks and bells and nightgowns
Tassels in the morning sky

Womanchild on the sidestreet

flashin' in blackpatch

lipstick on her reefer

waiting for a match...
