"Miss Celie's Blues (Sister) [From the Color Purple]" as written by Quincy D. Jones, Rodney L. Temperton and Lionel B. Jr. Richie....
Sister, you've been on my mind
Sister, we're two of a kind
So, sister, I'm keepin' my eye on you

I betcha think I don't know nothin
But singin' the blues, oh, sister
Have I got news for you, I'm something
I hope you think that you're something too

Scufflin', I been up that lonesome road
And I seen alot of suns going down
Oh, but trust me
No low life's gonna run me around

So let me tell you something Sister
Remember your name, no twister
Gonna steal your stuff away, my sister
We sho' ain't got a whole lot of time
So-o-o shake your shimmy Sister
'Cause honey the 'shug' is feelin' fine
