Review

January, 22nd 2017
Nina Simone, who after sunset of her star is still considered one of the best soul-performers of the world, makes us happy with this vibrant song. It is noteworthy that here she also takes the play on the piano, however, with a few notes. The basic sound goes from contrabass and drums; last faintly stroke with sticks. Long as 4:40, but you want to make it lasted 10 times longer. Reference: Read more about "Four Women" , the song written by jazz singer, composer, pianist and arranger Nina Simone

Four Women Song Lyrics


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
