Strange Fruit

Billie Holiday1998年1月27日

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 popular 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 cry
