black and blue

sozleri 1929'da andy razaf tarafından yazılan, thomas fats waller ve harry brooks tarafından bestelenen, o tarihte genis kitlelere ulasan ilk zenci protest sarkısı olarak kabul edilen, louis amstrong'un unutulmaz sarkısı.
( what did i do to be so) black and blue
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 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?

i'm white inside,
but that don't help my case.
'cause i can't hide
what is on my face,
oh!
