My people do love to dance
Say yahhhh
Well my culture is full of it
I can’t get enough of it
Give me a piece of your time
So I can tell you a little rhyme
Pupusas to posole
Humans to grandma’s kitchen
Running with the chickens
Loving the life we lived in
California crush never felt such a rush
Monkeys that swang from tree to tree
From the sunset shores of El Salvador
Life could have never been a bore
Que pasa calavasa
Learning how to salsa
Angels baseball that takes my time
Grandpa Torres when he smiles it’s an incredible rare sight
Tough rancho attitude for life
This is California life
Strict family rules
Me and dad head banging in the music stands
From learning the soldier boy to the head lean
We shuffle wip and dip
We are all along for this wicked wild trip
Belly dancing for bethleham started over with Uncle Sam
Cultures that change from day to day
Ill make shure mine stays the same this is my history
My father coming to this country
Tough love Mexicans
Artsy arbics
these are my people they made me who I am
I still add a little when I can
to the ruff sands of the middle east
To the sunlit shores of el Salvador
To the remote beauty of Mexico
To bold brave liberty
It defines me
Makes me special
Brings me to life
In times of great strife
What is culture?
It makes us golden it makes us who we are
What is your story?
