We people who are darker than blue. This ain't no time for segregatin'. I'm talking 'bout brown and yellow two. High yellow girl, 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 the same as me. Pardon me, brother, as you stand in your glory. I know you won't mind if I tell the.
Let me love in my own way. 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.
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.
Here's the lyrics: "WE ARE THE PEOPLE. WHO ARE DARKER THAN BLUE. WE PEOPLE WHO ARE DARKER THAN BLUE. ARE WE GONNA STAND 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.
