Said the Blackbird to the Crow
Says the Blackbird to the Crow
Says the blackbird to the crow,
"What makes white folks hate us so?"
"Ever since this world was made,
Pulling up corn has been our trade."
So said the blackbird to the crow
"Down in the cornfield we will go,
"Ever since Adam and Eve were made,
The picking of corn has been our trade."
