Verse 1 chords: [play chords or play Intro Riff] 
      G          C/G   F
Your beautiful African friend
G           C/G        F
Next to him I look so white
   G          C/G         F
So white that you turned away
    G         C/G         F
And wanted me out of your sight


Interlude: G  C/G  F  G  C/G  F


Verse 2: (use verse 1 chords)
To be exotic and I did pretend
In the backyard to slowly undress
As you pulled the twigs from my hair
That I put there myself I confess

So I joked of a forbidden fruit
As we argued into the night
In a city of tanning salons
And TV screens all shining bright
