The Queen Nina Simone… Ain’t Got No… I’ve Got Life

I

Ain’t got no home

Ain’t got no shoes

Ain’t got no money

Ain’t got no class

Ain’t got no friends

Ain’t got no schoolin’

Ain’t got no work

Ain’t got no job

Ain’t got no money

no place to stay… 

Ain’t got no FATHER

Ain’t got no MOTHER

Ain’t got no children 

Ain’t got no sisters

or

brothers

Ain’t got no EARTH

Ain’t got no faith

Ain’t got no church

Ain’t got no GOD

Ain’t got no love…

Ain’t got no MIND

no cigarettes

 no clothes

no country

 no class

no schoolin’

 no friends

 no nothin’

Ain’t got no GOD

Ain’t got one more…

Ain’t got no EARTH  

no order

 no food

no home

I said I ain’t got no clothes

no job

no nothing

Ain’t got long to live 

but

I ain’t got no love 

 But what have I got

Oh, what have I got

Let me tell you what I got

Nobody’s gonna take away…

Unless I want to

I got my hair on my head

my brains

my ears

my eyes  

nose

and

my mouth

I got my smile… 

I got my tongue  

my chin

 neck

my boobies

 my heart

soul

and

my back

I got my sex…

I got my arms, my hands, my fingers,

my legs, my feet, my toes,

and my liver,

got my blood…

I got life

I’ve got lives

I got headaches

and

toothaches

and

bad times too

like you …

I got my hair

 my head

 my brains  

my ears

 my eyes

my nose

and

my mouth

I got my smile 

and

it’s my smile

I got my tongue

 my chin

 my neck

and my boobies

my heart  

my soul

and

my back

I got my sex …

I got my arms, my hands, my fingers,

my legs, my feet, my toes,

got my liver, got my blood..

I got life

I got my freedom

My heart

I got life…..
