Black Letters


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
