Washington, D.C. is pretty but it ain't my city
I need a town where I can get down
I follow traces of faces of people baby
And when they get it on the world turns brown
In my town you can walk around at night
Go anywhere with anyone you like
Don't like to leave I'd rather hang around
I love it 'cause the world comes to my town

C...A...RA...MEL

The younger you feel the more it feels right
Crossover genes in the middle of the night
I thought a little color hurt no one
But I was wrong baby, dead wrong
So I'm calling all white people, black people
Asians, South Asians, Hispanics, Natives everybody
I'm gonna scream it at the top of my lungs
Caramel city is where I come from

C...A...RA...MEL

It don't get better when you run and hide
I like to see it when the worlds collide
I wanna do it baby, do it like we do every night
I'm sick and tired of just being friends
I want to melt in pots and make amends
The first kiss means the party is about to begin

Washington, D.C. is pretty but it ain't my city
I need a town where I can get down
I follow traces of faces of people baby
I need love from everyone around
So I'm calling all white people, black people,
Asians, South Asians, Hispanics, Natives everybody
I'm gonna scream it at the top of my lungs
Caramel city is where I come from

C...A...RA...MEL
C...A...RA...MEL
C...A...RA...MEL
