  • the impressions'ın meşhur ettiği, sonradan curtis mayfield'ın da solo kariyerinde icra etmeye devam ettiği inanılmaz güzellikteki 1 şarkısı, şu dünyanın. işte sözleri:

    we people who are darker than blue
    don’t let us hang around this town and let what others say come true
    we're just good for nothing, they all figure
    a boyish grown up shiftless jigger
    now we can't hardly stand for that
    or is that really where it's at
    we people who are darker than blue
    we got no time for segregating
    let’s talk about brown and yellow too
    high yellow gal can't you tell
    you're just the surface of our dark deep well
    if your mind could really see
    you'd know your color same as me
    pardon me brother as you stand in your glory
    i know you won't mind if i tell the whole story
    get yourself together, learn to take the time
    we’re committing our genocide, without even trying
    i know we've all got some problems, but the hell am i to say
    the peace we keep shall be the peace you reap
    today there’s no other way
    what goes around comes around
    now i know we have great respect for the sister, and mother
    it's even better yet
    but there's the joker in the street loving one brother and killing the other
    when the time comes and we are really free
    there'll be no brothers left you see
    we people who are darker than blue
    don't let us hang around this town
    and let what others say come true
    we’re just good for nothing they all figure
    a boyish grown up shiftless jigger
    now we can't hardly stand for that
    or is that really where it's at
    pardon me brother as you stand in your glory
    i know you won't mind if i tell the whole story
    pardon me brother, i know we've come a long long way
    but let us not be so satisfied
    for tomorrow can be an even brighter day
