Ain't Got No/I Got Life Lyrics

Artist: Nina Simone

Ain't got no home, ain't got no shoes
Ain't got no money, ain't got no class
Ain't got no skirts, ain't got no sweater
Ain't got no perfume, ain't got no beer
Ain't got no man

Ain't got no mother, ain't got no culture
Ain't got no friends, ain't got no schooling
Ain't got no love, ain't got no name
Ain't got no ticket, ain't got no token
Ain't got no God

What about God?
Why am I alive anyway?
Yeah, what about God?
Nobody can take away

I got my hair, I got my head
I got my brains, I got my ears
I got my eyes, I got my nose
I got my mouth, I got my smile
I got my tongue, I got my chin
I got my neck, I got my boobs

I got my heart, I got my soul
I got my back, I got my sex
I got my arms, I got my hands
I got my fingers, Got my legs
I got my feet, I got my toes
I got my liver, Got my blood

I've got life , I've got my freedom
I've got the life

And I'm gonna keep it
I've got the life
And nobody's gonna take it away
I've got the life

oh jeah thank you.
by alison on 1/1/2009 10:13am
did a man sing this as well
by Lincoln on 1/2/2009 10:44pm
I just listened to a recording of Nina singing this song, and she followed this lyric only loosely. It suggests that she uses various lyrics when she performs this tune.
by Allan on 2/3/2009 12:18pm
Yeah, it is what have I got?, not what about god. someone should fix that. Anyone know how.
by hardyandtiny on 3/29/2009 1:30pm

by Kensington on 2/22/2010 12:37pm
So beutiful song ever this is telling us not what we don't have, just talk about we have.
by Erica on 3/25/2010 5:53pm
Awesome song. It's really passionate with great lyrics
by lyricson on 5/15/2010 2:32am
About the lyrics - so many options like no wine/no cigarettes.and the beer too. really nice song anyway.
by alice on 5/26/2010 8:21pm
what a beautifull black woman was a ridiculoes comment
lyrics probs genarally right for certion versions of the song
by avril on 7/8/2010 7:30am
bit rude in some parts
by Rachella on 9/11/2010 5:43am
I also think it's a great song and she's a pretty black lady. Big Kiss, Rachella

Perfeita! Que música extraordinária.... Um letra que cativa, uma melodia que inspira.
by José on 11/5/2010 2:24pm
This song has many lyrics, specially on live performances Nina changes the lyrics according to her inspiration and mood.
Therefore, the recorded songs also resulted in two lyric versions that I'm aware of.
by mepcharm on 11/30/2011 9:59am
It's basically from 'Hair,' the 1960's musical!
by Mike T on 5/16/2012 6:02pm
I personally think she was an ugly black woman..... The point being that her colour is irrelevant. Positive racism is not good
by gioturrini on 12/17/2012 1:40pm
u're right Mike T: Simone is a great musician and performer/composer.that's all there's to it. no matter whether she's beautiful (and she was not) or whatever her skin colour. positive racism is one of the worst things, great music is great music, no matter what
by steptoe on 8/18/2013 11:51am
Yeh but who else sang ive heard a bloke singin it eithar 69s or early 70s anyone know ?
by wae on 2/1/2014 10:44am
wrong lyrics! check out live video on youtube
by brass on 3/29/2014 5:44pm
These two songs are from the 1967 musical "Hair", lyrics by James Rado and Gerome Ragni and music by Galt MacDermot. Nina combined the two songs (that come at different times in the play) into one song. Check out the other 40(!) songs from this musical, they are ALL as moving and beautiful as these two!
by Shit on 4/30/2014 3:17am
Is a shit
by Amin on 6/28/2014 5:29pm
C une chanson incroyable . C tt
by Joey on 12/19/2015 9:19pm
This bridge is missing. "I got headaches, and toothaches, and bad times too, like you" and it is"what have I got" instead of what about God.
