Ain't Got No/I Got Life

Nina Simone

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 love
Ain't got no faith

Ain't got no culture, ain't got no mother
Ain't got no father, ain't got no brother
Ain't got no children, ain't got no aunts
Ain't got no uncles, ain't got no love
Ain't got no mind

Ain't got no country ain't got no schooling
Ain't got no friends, ain't got no nothing
Ain't got no water, ain't got no air
Ain't got no smokes, ain't got no ticket

Ain't got no water, ain't got no love
Ain't got no hair, ain't got no God
Ain't got no wine, ain't got no money
Ain't got no bed, ain't got no God
Ain't got no love

What have I got?
Why am I alive anyway?
Yeah, what have I got?
Nobody can take away

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 myself

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
I've got the life

I've got the life
I got a headache, and toothache
And bad times too like you

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 boobs
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, I got my legs
I got my feet, I got my toes
I got my liver, got my blood

I've got life, I've got my freedom
I've got the life
