      Dinah Washington - Black And Blue Música y Letra

      Out in the street, shufflin' feet
      Couples passin' two by two
      While here am I, left high and dry
      Black, and 'cause I'm black I'm blue
      
      Browns and yellers, all have fellers
      Gentlemen prefer them light
      Wish I could fade, can't make the grade
      Nothing but dark days in sight
      
      Cold, empty bed, springs hard as lead
      Pains in my head, feel like old Ned
      What did I do to be so black and blue?
      
      No joys for me, no company
      Even the mouse ran from my house
      All my life through I've been so black and blue
      
      I'm white inside, it don't help my case
      'Cause I can't hide, what is on my face, oh!
      
      I'm so forlorn, life's just a thorn
      My heart is torn, why was I born?
      What did I do to be so black and blue?
      
      'Cause you're black, folks think you lack
      They laugh at you, and scorn you too
      What did I do to be so black and blue?
      
      When you are near, they laugh and sneer
      Set you aside and you're denied
      What did I do to be so black and blue?
      
      How sad I am, each day I feel worse
      My mark of Ham seems to be a curse, oh
      
      How will it end? ain't got a friend
      My only sin is my skin
      What did I do to be so black and blue?
