If You've Never Been Vamped by a Brown Skin: You've Never Been Vamped At All

2016 Broadway revival
Shuffle Along the Musical - If You've Never Been Vamped by a Brown Skin: You've Never Been Vamped At All Lyrics

CHIEF OF POLICE:
DEACON BIRCH OF MT. ZION CHURCH,
WAS HAILED UP INTO COURT,
HE WAS BROUGHT IN BY HIS WIFE, I THINK,
AND CHARGED WITH NON-SUPPORT.
A SEAL-SKIN BROWN WITH JET BLACK HAIR,
CAUSED DEAC' TO LOSE HIS HEAD,
AND WHEN THE JUDGE CALLED DEAC' TO SPEAK,
DESE AM THE WORDS HE SAID:

CHORUS:
IF YOU'VE NEVER BEEN VAMPED BY A BROWN SKIN,
YOU'VE NEVER BEEN VAMPED AT ALL.
FOR THE VAMPINGEST VAMP IS A BROWN SKIN,
BELIEVE ME NOW, THAT AIN'T NO STALL.
A HIGH BROWN GAL WILL MAKE YOU BREAK OUT OF JAIL,
A CHOC'LATE BROWN WILL MAKE A TADPOLE SMACK A WHALE,
BUT A PRETTY SEAL SKIN BROWN, I MEAN ONE LONG AND TALL,
WOULD MAKE THE SILENT SPHINX OUT IN THE DESERT BAL1.
IF YOU'VE NEVER BEEN VAMPED BY A BROWN SKIN,
YOU'VE NEVER BEEN VAMPED AT ALL.
