Lyrics to "Don't Bring Me Down" song by Electric Light Orchestra: You got me runnin' goin' out of my mind, You got me thinkin' that I'm wastin' my time . You're lookin' good just like a snake in the grass, One of these days you're gonna break your glass. Don't bring me down, no no no no no no no no, I'll tell you once more before I get off the floor Don't bring me down. You got me shakin' got me runnin' away You got me crawlin' up to you everyday, Don't bring me down, no no no no no, I'll tell you once more before I get off the floor Don't bring me down. I'll tell you once more before I get off the floor Don't bring me down.
Coal Black opens in front of a fireplace with a red-tinted silhouette of a large woman holding a young child in her lap. The little black girl asks her "mammy" to tell her the story of "So White an' de Sebben Dwarfs". Mammy" begins: Well, once there was a mean ol' queen. And she lived in a gorgeous castle. Just before they drive off, the assassins are seen covered with So White's lipstick, an innuendo as to exactly how she earned her freedom. Wandering through the woods by herself, So White runs into the Sebben Dwarfs, seven diminutive army men in uniform who sing "We're in the Army Now," with two dwarfs singing "it takes us cats. to catch them rats" at the end, and So White declares in a 1940s swing-style singing voice, "I'm wacky over khaki now!"
