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
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
My skin is tan
My hair is fine
My hips invite you
My mouth like wine
Whose little girl am I
Anyone with money to buy
What do they call me
My name is Sweet Thing
My name is Sweet Thing
My skin is brown
My manner tough
I'll kill the first mother I see
My life's been rough
I'm awfully bitter these days
To my sadness I'm enslaved
What do they call me?
