Lizz Wright, Dianne Reeves & Simone - Four Women (NSJ '09)
My skin is black My arms are long My hair is wooly 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 My Name Is Peaches
They are performing as a tribute to Nina Simone, Simone's mother. She is present "in spirit" and her part is sung by her daughter. That is why Simone is singing 2 parts. ;-)
