Produced by Barney Josephson. Album Jazz at the Philharmonic. Strange Fruit Lyrics. Southern trees bear a strange fruit Blood on the leaves and blood at the root Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees. About Strange Fruit. This song, written by Abel Meeropol and performed by many artists (but most notably, Billie Holiday and Nina Simone,) is a dark and profound song about the lynching of African Americans in the Southern United States during the Jim Crow Era. In the lyrics, black victims are portrayed as strange fruit, as they hang from trees, rotting in the sun, blowing in the wind, and becoming food for crows upon being burned. 3. I Cried for You. 4. Fine And Mellow. 7. Gee, Baby, Ain't I Good to You?

Fine And Mellow (оригинал Billie Holiday). Нежный и ласковый (перевод Алекс). My man don't love me. Мой мужчина не любит меня, Treats me oh so mean. But when he starts in to love me. Но когда он начинает любить меня, He's so fine and mellow. Он такой нежный и ласковый. Love will make you drink and gamble. Любовь опьяняет тебя и вызывает зависимость, Make you stay out all night long. Заставляет тебя не спать всю ночь.
