Four Women (Dee Dee Bridgewater)

My skin is black My arms are long My hair is woolly My back is strong Strong enough to take the pain Inflicted again and again What do they call me My name is aunt sarah 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 My name is saffronia My skin is tan My hair is fine My hips invite you My mouth like wine Whose little girl am I? Anyone who has money to buy What do they call me My name is sweet thing My name is sweet thing My skin is brown My manner is tough I'll kill the first mother I see My life has been too rough I'm awfully bitter these days Because my parents were slaves What do they call me My name is peaches
