BE MY BABY (1991)

Ronnie Spector

Skinny Yellow Horse. That was the name the black kids had for me when I was growing up, because I had light skin and I was so small that I'd always kick like a little pony whenever I got in a fight. And I was always getting beat up. PS 153 on 145th Street and Amsterdam Avenue was one of the toughest black schools in Harlem, and the kids were always making fun of me. 'Hey, half-breed,' they'd yell, 'get your ass back to the reservation.'
I didn't have it as bad as my sister.
