Thread Name: Lyr Req: Black But Sweet (Houdini)
Subject: Lyr Req: Black But Sweet (Houdini)
"She's black and homely and that is all,
She's black and homely and that is all,
When men meet her, they're bound to fall,
And say, "Oh Mamita, she's sweet oh Lord."

What are the rest of the lyrics to this 1931 song by Wilmoth Houdini? I love it, probably because it seems to be the singer saying about his girlfriend, "Yeah, she's a really wonderful person."
