Black Entertainment

another great entertainerrobinson_large

bojangles

jingled his way to the top

tapped nonstop

for him it was play

but he was made to work it

he tapped himself to the stage

jingling jangling

jangling baby jangling

until he couldn’t stop

because the penalty was

whuppings on his back

so he tapped himself

until his freedom ran raw from his pores

’til blood seeped from his soles

’til sweat poured from his soul

Sambo led the way for black entertainment

remember that
