I' ve got life..


I've got life.. I've got my freedom(?)
I've got life and I'm gonna keep it!



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 skirts, Ain't got no sweaters
Ain't got no perfume, Ain't got no bed
Ain't got no mind

Ain't got no mother,Ain't got no culture
Ain't got no friends, Ain't got no schooling
Ain't got no love, Ain't got no name
Ain't got no ticket, Ain't got no token,
Ain't got no god,

And what have I got?
Why am I alive anyway?
What have I got nobody can take away?

Got my hair, Got my head
Got my brains, Got my ears
Got my eyes, Got my nose
Got my mouth, I got my smile

I got my tongue, Got my chin
Got my neck, Got my boobs
Got my heart, Got my soul
Got my back, I got my sex

I got my arms, got my hands
Got my fingers, got my legs
Got my feet, got my toes
Got my liver
I got my blood

I've got life
I've got my freedom
I've got life and I'm gonna keep it

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 laughs, I've got headaches,
and toothaches and bad times too like you ...

Got my hair on my head
Got my brains, Got my ears
Got my eyes, Got my nose
Got my mouth, I got my smile
I got my tongue, Got my chin
Got my neck, Got my boobies
Got my heart, Got my soul
Got 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, and i'm going to keep it
as long as i want it, I got life.....

update: Έψαξα στο mix pod την εκτέλεση με τους παραπάνω στίχους, αλλά δεν επιτρέπει   την εκτέλεσή του. Έτσι το παραθέτω εδώ.                                                                  Μία διαφορετική εκτέλεση του Ain't Got No, I Got Life σε στίχο και μουσική, πάντα από την Nina Simone!
