Mississippi Goddamn letra



MISSISSIPPI GODDAMN
(Nina Simone)


The name of this tune is Mississippi Goddam And I mean every word of it

Alabama's got me so upset Tennessee made me lose my rest And everybody knows about Mississippi Goddam

Alabama's got me so upset Tennessee made me lose my rest And everybody knows about Mississippi Goddam

Can't you see it can't you feel it It's all in the air I can't stand the pressure much longer Somebody say a prayer

Alabama's got me so upset Tennessee made me lose my rest And everybody knows about Mississippi Goddam

This is a show tune But the show hasn't been written for it yet

Hound dogs on my trail Schoolchildren sitting in jail Black cat crossed my path I think every day's gonna be my last Lord have mercy on this land of mine We're all gonna get it in due time

I don't belong here I don't belong there I've even stopped believing in prayer Don't tell me I tell you Me and my people just about do I've been there so I know Keep on saying go slow

But that's just the trouble too slow Washing the windows too slow Picking the cotton too slow You're just plain rotten too slow Too damn lazy too slow Thinking's crazy too slow

Where am I going What am I doing I don't know I don't know Just try to do your very best Stand up be counted with all the rest Cos everybody knows about Mississippi Goddam

I bet you thought I was kidding didn't you

Picket lines school boycots They try to say it's a communist plot All I want is equality For my sister my brother my people and me

Yes you lied to me all these years You told me to wash and clean my ears And talk real fine just like a lady And you'd stop calling me Sister Sady

Oh but this whole country is full of lies You're all gonna die and die like flies I don't trust you anymore You keep on saying go slow go slow

But that's just the trouble too slow Desegregation too slow Mass participation too slow Unification too slow Do things gradually too slow Will bring more tragedy too slow

Why don't you see it why don't you feel it I don't know I don't know You don't have to live next to me Just give me my equality

And everybody knows about Mississippi Everybody knows about Alabama Everybody knows about Mississippi Goddam That's it
