Black Velveteen
Lenny Kravitz Lyrics


Black velveteen
Simple and clean
Oh what a bad machine
Black velveteen

Supple and plain
The 21st century dream
Ready to please
Free from disease
She's waiting on her knees
It's not a sin
Titanium skin
Just take her for a spin

Black velveteen
Simple and clean
Oh what a bad machine
Black velveteen

Supple and plain
The 21st century dream
Nice piece of kit
Electronic clit

Just sit down for a fit
Ready to trip
A guarantee hit
She's all you ever wished

Black velveteen don't give a damn she'll do dishes
Black velveteen knows all the night spots in France
Black velveteen's cat smells like strawberry kittens
Black velveteen always is ready to dance

She's ready to
Black velveteen
Simple and clean
Oh what a bad machine

Black velveteen
Supple and plain
The 21st century dream

Black velveteen don't give a damn she'll do dishes
Black velveteen knows all the night spots in France
Black velveteen's cat smells like strawberry kittens
Black velveteen always is ready to dance

Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Oh yes she's ready to

Black velveteen don't give a damn she'll do dishes
Black velveteen knows all the night spots in France
Black velveteen's cat smells like strawberry kittens
Oh Yeah

Black velveteen always is ready to dance
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Oh yes she's ready to
Black velveteen

Simple and clean
Oh what a bad machine
Black velveteen
Supple and plain

The 21st century dream
Black velveteen
Simple and clean
Oh what a bad machine

Black velveteen
Supple and plain
The 21st century dream

Man I remember seeing this video on VH1 as a kid and being mesmerized and I still don’t even know why 😂😂

Lenny was in some real industrial grade cocaine when he made this gem.
