My skin is black

Lizz Wright, Dianne Reeves e Simone (filha de Nina Simone) numa afirmação de feminilidade e negritude

My skin is black
My arms are long
My hair is woolly
My back is strong
Strong enough to take the pain
That's been inflicted again and again
What do they call me
My name is Aunt Sarah

My skin is yellow
My hair is long
Between two worlds
I do belong
My father was rich and white
He forced my mother late one night
What do they call me
My name is Saffronia (2x)

My skin is tanned
My hair's alright, its fine
My hips invite you
And my lips are like wine
Whose little girl am i?
Well yours if you have some money to buy
What do they call me
My name is Sweet Thing

My skin is brown
And my manner is tough
I'll kill the first mother I see
Cos' my life has been too rough
I'm awfully bitter these days
Because my parents were slaves
What do they call me
