    Arun how could you not know what it's about on the first listen?

    southern trees bear a strange fruit
    blood on the leaves and blood at the roots
    black bodies swinging in the southern breeze
    strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees

    Well I alway's assumed it was about the Klu Klux Klan and stuff..slavery in the south..

    But it's about German paratroopers who got killed jumping from planes in their invasion of Crete..and they were just left there to rot...

    //all better now...

    //repeats

    Its just like the time Jon told me that Ice Cube was Mr T's son. And I told everyone and they believed me!

    (mind you, I thought Ice Cube was the guy in Deep Blue Sea but that was actually LL Cool J so it got even more confusing cuz I was telling people that LL Cool J was Mr T's son!!! And people were saying that THEY LOOKED LIKE EACH OTHER SO IT MUST BE TRUE!!!)

    A word of advice...don't believe anything Jon Steggles tells you!

    LOL
