Lyrics

Baby was a black sheep, baby was a whore
Baby got big and baby get bigger
Baby get something, baby get more
Baby, baby, baby was a rock n' roll nigger

  • She explained what the song was really about, but I think while she's re-appropriating the word for something else, it still makes me feel uneasy. If it were sung by a Black person, I'm not sure I'd feel any better about it.
  • Bibi was a black sheep bibi was a whore !!!
  • anyone who thinks this song is racist is a moron, end of!
  • lol i didn't know patti smith was into using racist slurs.
  • Great song!
  • d0l
    it's funny this song still creates waves. quit yer titty flappin'
  • What a fucking tune.
  • The site seems to have some difficulty distinguishing between Patti Smith and Patti Smith Group, and often gets them confused. Maybe that's why; it's under the other artist name.
  • Er, how does this work? It says "Penny Traition's Loved Tracks"...So I put it on; it says "You've listened to Patti Smith 14 times before, but not 'Rock n Roll Nigger''". So how is it one of my "Loved Tracks"? Just a question; I'm a wee bit over the legal limit so please bear with me...
