Go watch The Boondocks

Filed in: media, Mon, Dec 19 2005 00:03 PT

I am the stone that the builder refused/I am the visual, the inspiration/that made Lady sing the blues/I am the spark that makes your idea bright/the same spark that lights the dark/so that you can know your left from your right/I am the ballot in your box, the bullet in the gun/the inner glow that lets you know to call your brother ‘son’/the story that just begun, the promise of what’s to come/and I’m-a remain a soldier until the war is won

theme song from The Boondocks

If you’re not watching The Boondocks on Adult Swim, you’re not utilizing your television to its full entertainment potential. Catch up before Episode 10 airs, sometime in January (which, coincidentally, is also when I expect to come back from hiatus).

    All I’m sayin is… you should change yo name to Bitches!

  9. Eli says:

    I think the song lyric actually says, “I am the visual, the inspiration, that made Lady sing the blues.” This refers to Ella Fitzgerald, known as Lady Ella. Could be wrong, but I don’t think so.

  10. Eli says:

    Also, she had an album actually called, “Lady Sings the Blues”

  11. WordUp says:

    Eli is most definitely correct. All the other original lyrics psted were right too. Clean out your ears man.

  12. Mohamed says:

    Lady sing the blues refers to Billie Holiday, not Ella Fitzgerald.

  16. dodiad says:

    “the inspiration that made Lady sing the blues” refers to Billie Holliday, aka Lady Day. “Lady Sings the Blues” is the movie about her life, starring Diana Ross, made in 1972.
