Black letters
Nā Rob Ruha
Written to push back at Māori hate groups like Treaty Gate, One Law for All and Hobbsons Pledge, ‘Black Letters’ is a declaration of moving on from their go-to social stereotype lables and likens their media rants to those of a gossiping ex-partner.

I’m not listening, I’m not listening to you, mmm
You got me all fired up ‘cos you never ever tell the truth
I’m not listening, I’m not listening to you, mmm
White lies pressed in your Black Letters baby you’re no good

Why didn’t ya tell me, thought you were always kinda sneaky
Runnin’ your mouth about me in my neighborhood
Why’d nobody tell me, tell me all about her cheatin’
How she’d toast her post just to boast the most dirt on me

Oh… why when we were like family
Don’t you believe it! You better not believe it
But you turned your back, you turned your back on me

I’m not listening, I’m not listening to you, mmm
You got me all fired up ‘cos you never ever tell the truth
I’m not listening, I’m not listening to you, mmm
White lies pressed in your Black Letters baby you’re no good

Black letters in the morning
Black letters in the evening
LOL – its like a spell with a #1840 Blame it on me yeah

Black letters in the morning
Black letters in the evening
Oh Tweet little birdy, lolly-pop sweet
Then you take me by the heart and twist

Oh… why when we were like family
Don’t you believe it! You better not believe it
But you turned your back, you turned your back on me
On me… on me… you take me by the heart and Twist!

Twist, twist! You take your black letters and;
Twist, twist! A little harder now
Twist, twist! A little tighter now
Twist, twist! Oh, a little meaner now
You take your Black Letters and you twist, you twist, you twist!

I’m not listening, I’m not listening to you, mmm
You got me all fired up ‘cos you never ever tell the truth
I’m not listening, I’m not listening to you, mmm
White lies pressed in your Black Letters baby you’re no good
