Strange Fruit (奇怪的水果) (Tricky/Tool Remix) - Billie Holiday (比莉.荷莉戴)

Written by:Lewis Allan

Southern trees bear strange fruit


Blood on the leaves and blood at the root


Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze


Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees


Pastoral scene of the gallant south


The bulging eyes and the twisted mouth


Scent of magnolias sweet and fresh


Then the sudden smell of burning flesh


Here is fruit for the crows to pluck


For the rain to gather for the wind to suck


For the sun to rot for the trees to drop


Here is a strange and bitter crop
