Paroles Sweet Rhode Island Red

Le - Par .

Born in Louisiana in a town called Franklin
I was fully matured by the time I reached the age of ten
A mulatto girl is what they called me
And us mulattos had no trouble at all with men
All men say that I'm as sweet as honey
'Cause I'm thirty-four, thirty-eight and twenty-two at the tummy

They called me Sweet Rhode Island Red
Sweet Rhode Island Red
Sweet Rhode Island Red
Sweet Rhode Island Red
Sweet-y is what they said about Sweet Rhode Island Red

Tried to live a life I thought I wanted me to
I went to church, finished school, was a member of a [?]
But old pastor [?] and Nathan Jones
They were just too hard headed to leave me alone
They said that I was sweet as honey
'Cause I'm thirty-four, thirty-eight and twenty-two at the tummy

They called me Sweet Rhode Island Red
Sweet Rhode Island Red
Sweet Rhode Island Red
Sweet Rhode Island Red
Sweet-y is what they said about Sweet Rhode Island Red

I was seventeen when I moved to New Orleans
'Cause living in the city has always been my dream
People laughed, said it was a shame and a pity
When old mayor Daley gave me the key to the city
He too said that I was as sweet as honey
'Cause I'm thirty-four, thirty-eight and twenty-two at the tummy

They called me Sweet Rhode Island Red
Sweet Rhode Island Red
Sweet Rhode Island Red
Sweet Rhode Island Red
Sweet-y is what they said about Sweet Rhode Island Red
