Cat Power – Angelitos Negros lyrics

(by Roberta Flack)

Pintor nacido en mi tierra,
Con el pincel extranjero,
Pintor que sigues el rumbo,
De tantos pintores viejos.

Aunque la virgen sea blanca,
P? Ntale angelitos negros,
Que tambi? N se van al cielo,
Todos los negritos buenos.

Pintor si pintas con amor,
? Por qu? Desprecias su color?,
Si sabes que en el cielo,
Tambi? N los quiere Dios.

Pintor de santos alcoba,
Si tienes alma en el cuerpo,
Por qu? Al pintar en tus cuadros,
Te olvidaste de los negros.

Siempre que pintas iglesias,
Pintas angelitos bellos,
Pero nunca te acordaste,
De pintar un? Ngel negro
