What you are looking for is a song called Brother Louie by the band Stories.
Louie Louie is an American rock 'n' roll song written by Richard Berry in 1955. It has become a standard in pop and rock, with hundreds of versions recorded by different artists. The song is written in the style of a Jamaican ballad; and tells, in simple verse-chorus form, the first-person story of a Jamaican sailor returning to the island to see his lady love. The song you are referring to was Brother Louie by the group Story. It started out something like this: She was black as the night, Louie was whiter than white, there's a danger when you taste brown sugar... Go to a search engine and type in {Brother Louie lyrics} and you will find the whole song. 'Brother Louie' was written by Errol Brown and performed and released by his band Hot Chocolate in 1973. Hot chocolate had a hit with Brother Louie in the U.K. (#7) but never charted in the U.S. The Stories had the hit everyone remembers in the U.S.
