Andra Day - Tigress & Tweed Lyrics


(Music From the Motion Picture)

Say, say, say
Mm, say, say, say
Say a prayer for me

Strange fruit come down off the tree
Cut it down under your feet
Juicy fruit, so bittersweet
Fruit stand tall, these roots go deep
Strange fruit bustin’ on these leaves
Ancestors don’t take defeat
Left the scent of victory
In the air, tigress and tweed
Oh, Lenthéric, you carry it
I’m tired, grin, bear it
The truth of these, you carry it
Future, you and your chariot

Say a prayer for me (Ah, ah-ah)
‘Cause I don’t get no sleep (Ah, ah-ah)
Say a prayer for me (Ah, ah-ah)
Mm, say, say, say (Ah, ah-ah)
Chariot

But I been rallyin’ the troops
Chariots aflame in line behind my Masi’ coupe
Damu at thesе roots
It’s thick, too, made big fruit, big vines
Always pressin’ that linе
So full of love and light
The truth is black and white

Say a prayer for me (Ah, ah-ah)
‘Cause I don’t get no sleep (Ah, ah-ah)
Say a prayer for me (Ah, ah-ah)
Mm, say, say, say (Ah, ah-ah)
Say a prayer

Say, say, say
Mm, say, say, say
Say a prayer for me
Say a prayer
