What's a Mocha Drop?

(Originally posted on September 2, 2008)

The term 'Mocha Drop' is from the song "Black, White, Tan" by artist Nicole C. Mullen. It tells the story of diversity within her family. Since the time I knew that I would spend the rest of my life with Romeo, I knew that one day we'd have a little "mocha drop" of our own. We've been praying and hoping for many years now, me especially! But, I love this song, its really catchy if you've ever heard it, and it sums up our celebration of love!

Here's the lyrics:
Mama looks like coffee,daddy looks like cream
Baby is a mocha drop,American dream
All the colors in the rainbow is in her family tree
Woven altogether in a paisley tapestry

She holds real tightly to her parents' hands
Baby loves that woman,baby loves that man
And her soul gives a smile 'Cause she understands
That love is black,white,tan
Yeah black,white,tan
Everyone is precious in the Father's sight
It don't matter red,or yellow,black or white
He just loves you 'cause he loves you
And I tell you this is true
You are not a color and the color is not you

Hold real tightly to your Daddy's hand
Cause He loves that woman,He loves that man
And let your soul give a smile
Every once in a while
Let your soul give a smile
Every once in a while
Let your soul give a smile

Every once in a while'

Cause love is black,white tan
Yeah i know that love is black,white,tan

Yes i know GOD's love black,white,tan
A little girl will tell youBlack, White, Tan
