My skin is black 
My arms are long 
My hair is wooly 
My back is strong 
Strong enough to take the pain 
It's been 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 SIFFRONIA 
My name is Siffronia 

My skin is tan 
My hair's alright, it's fine 
My hips invite you 
And my lips are like wine 
Whose little girl am I? 
Well yours if you have some money to buy 
What do they call me 
My name is SWEET THING 
My name is Sweet Thing 

My skin is brown 
And my manner is tough 
I'll kill the first mother 
I see Cos 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 Egypt
