Ain't Got No/I Got Life

Gerome Ragni, James Rado, Gal McDermot
in: Nina Simone And Piano - 1968

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 wear, ain't got no job
Ain't got no man

Ain't got no father, ain't got no mother
Ain't got no children, ain't got no
Ain't got no earth, ain't got no water
Ain't got no ticket, ain't got no token
Ain't got no love

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

I got my tongue, I got my chin
I got my neck, I got my tits
I got my heart, I got my soul
I got my back, I got my sex

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

Got life , I got my life
