Random fact about song
Ram Jam were a short-lived band from New York City, and this was their only hit. While the lyrical content is pretty standard Folk/Blues material - about a black woman from Alabama who has a "wild" child, Ram Jam took some heat because some civil rights groups felt the lyrics were disrespectful to black women. While the lyrics can be deconstructed, Ram Jam's version is driven by the powerful beat and aggressive tempo, making it one of those songs that gets your heart beating faster. The song is commonly played at sporting events to pump up the crowd.

Black Betty lyrics:


Whoa, Black Betty (Bam-a-Lam)
Whoa, Black Betty (Bam-a-Lam)
Black Betty had a child (Bam-a-Lam)
The damn thing gone wild (Bam-a-Lam)

She said, "I'm worryin' outta mind" (Bam-a-Lam)
The damn thing gone blind (Bam-a-Lam)
I said Oh, Black Betty (Bam-a-Lam)
Whoa, Black Betty (Bam-a-Lam)

HIT IT
(Instrumental)

Whoa, Black Betty (Bam-a-Lam)
Whoa, Black Betty (Bam-a-Lam)
She really gets me high (Bam-a-Lam)
You know that's no lie (Bam-a-Lam)

She's so rock steady (Bam-a-Lam)
And she's always ready (Bam-a-Lam)
Whoa, Black Betty (Bam-a-Lam)
Whoa, Black Betty (Bam-a-Lam)

HIT IT
(Instrumental)

Whoa, Black Betty (Bam-a-Lam)
Whoa, Black Betty (Bam-a-Lam)
She's from Birmingham (Bam-a-Lam)
Way down in Alabam' (Bam-a-Lam)

Well, she's shaking that thing (Bam-a-Lam)
Boy, she makes me sing (Bam-a-Lam)
Whoa, Black Betty (Bam-a-Lam)
Whoa, Black Betty (Bam-a-Lam)

    This song is also the background music of a Spider-Man Flash player game my brother plays on the computer. I don't know what it has to do with Spiderman but whatever works.
