Recorded at Moon Studios, Berlin
Written by Kitty Durham, Holiday Sidewinder and A.A. Khan



Two wayward travelers
lost in blizzard of sin
hungry for a feast
to fill the void within
they clamored through
the streets of old New Orleans
and saw an enchanting fellow
dancing into their dreams

That boy is mine
I'll bake him cream pies
strawberry wine and green key limes
no one's ever known a bird so fine
that boy is mine
you honey coated swine
take your hands off
girl i've had enough of your meddlin
low down ways

That Boy is mine

Well i've seen you
on the corner with your blacksnake crawlin round
you make me weak in the knees
I'm on the ground
since you i found
I want you to rock me
i want you to shock me
I want you to come inside my mind
She don't realize there's one thing
that's on my mind
That boy is mine

The boy counts stars in technicolor bars
he carries hand bags
he's got a real swag about him
and I start to doubt him
The boy is fooled, he can never be told
His body's bought and sold
and leaves me cold
I guess I don't know
a thing about him

The boy ain't our kind

Well he's covered from head to toe
Diamonds, rubies, saphire, gold
he's got feathers like a crow
that makes him so
I just don't know
I still see him on the corner
calling strangers passing by
he sells his honey for your money
he's on all four
that boy is yours

The boy ain't our kind

T'was Mardi Gras night
and the sun bade farewell
as it sank back into the depths of pure hell
what they had see with their eyes
they would never have thought
that a boy so fine
could be sold and be bought
and poor Kitty and Holiday
ran through the streets
hiding and running from that voodoo beat

the boy is sweet, the boy is fine
but he just ain't our kind

the boy is sweet, the boy is fine
but he just ain't our kind
