Suzanne - Nina Simone

 

Suzanne takes you down to her place by the river

 

You can hear the boats go by

 

You can spend the night forver

 

And you know that she's half crazy

 

And that's why you want to be there

 

And she feeds you tea and oranges

That come all the way from China

 

And just when you mean to tell

 

That you have no love to give her

 

She gets you on her wavelength

 

And she lets the river answer

That you've always been her lover

 

And you want to travel with her

 

And you want to travel blind

And you think every you can trust her

 

For you've touched her perfect body with your mind

 

Now Jesus was a sailor

 

When he walked upon the water

 

And he spent a long time watching

 

From his lonely wooden tower

 

And when he knew for certain

 

Only drowning men could see him

He said "All men will be sailors then

Until the sea shall free them"

But he himself was broken

 

Long before the sky would open

 

Forsaken almost human

 

He sank beneath your wisdom like a stone

 

And you want to travel with him

 

And you want to travel blind

'Cause you think maybe you'll can trust him

 

'Cause he's touched your perfect body with his mind

 

Now Suzanne takes your hand

 

And she leads you to the river

 

She is wearing rags and feathers

 

From Salvation Army counters

And the sun pours down like honey

 

On our lady of the harbour

 

And she shows you where to look

 

Betteen the flowers

 

Betteen the flowers in the garbage

 

There are heroes in the seaweed

 

There are children in the morning

 

They are leaning out for love

 

And they will lean that way forever

 

Now Suzanne takes your hand

 

And you want to travel with him

 

And you want to travel blind

 

'Cause you think maybe you'll can trust him

 

'Cause he's touched your perfect body with his mind
