8 Views

Written by jazz singer, composer, pianist and arranger Eunice Waymon (aka Nina Simone), released on the 1966 album ''Wild Is the Wind''.

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
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 rough.
I'm awfully bitter these days
because my parents were slaves.
What do they call me
My name is
PEACHES!
