Simone, Nina - Take Me To The Water Lyrics

Take me to the water
Take me to the water
Take me to the water
To be baptized

None but the righteous
None but the righteous
None but the righteous
Shall be saved

So take me to the water
Take me to the water
Take me to the water
To be, to be baptized

I'm going back home, going back home
Gonna stay here no longer
I'm going back home, going back home
To be baptized

Simone, Nina Take Me To The Water Comments
  1. Mary Salvi

  2. Panton Muenchen


  3. Jacobim Mugatu

    So beautiful and Lord what a spirit in her. Loved this.

  4. Guit Meister

    I may be a white guy (raised UN- prejudiced, thank god- BTW) I love this lady to no end, and all black women that I see with an inkling of this woman within. that's all I can & will say.

  5. 1947dhammond

    More love to anyone listening in 2020! Leave a legacy for people!! Love NS!!

  6. Veroosh

    Her life is an example of what happens to people when they stand up and oppose the system. But this should not deter you, as more people rise up, the negative consequences of doing so will be mitigated. She is an example of strength, a true Pisces-Aquarius cusper.

  7. Chrystal Herron

    When YeYe said “I’m a Pisces (water sign) and I’m on the cusp of an Aquarius (the water bearer of the zodiac, even though it’s an air sign) and so I gotta say take me to the water...” 🙌🏾🌊👑

    She was so far ahead of her time!

    End of the clip...
    “My folks got nothing and they need inspiration 24hrs a day...” 🙌🏾. To whom much is given, much is required...and Nina gave her all.

  8. Angela Rotella
