  • Oh oh oh ohh
    Oh oh oh ohhh
    My Ethnicity babay ay
    Oh oh oh ohh

    My Ethnicity babay ay

    My father worked hard every day of his life to give us everything we had
    Then the war took everything away
    It broke his spirit
    So he broke his back
    My mum taught piano and it put us through school
    Didn't have much, everything she knew
    How to make it right
    How to not fight
    Yeah yeah yeahh

    [Chorus:]
    Then he told me
    Son I want you to go to North America
    To dream the dream of dreams
    To be somebody
    Work real hard
    Don't forget where you came from
    Don't forget who you are
    Look at you, you're a star
    So I'll never forget my e-ethnicityy
    No I'll never forget my e-ethnicityy
    No I'll never forget my e-ethnicityy
    No I'll never forget my e-ethnicityy
    I can only be me
    {E-ethnicity}
    I can only be me
    {E-ethnicity}

    The older I get I feel this need to know
    All about my past and family tree
    Everything my people been through
    And how we finally came to be
    They said I had to go and change my name
    Forget about all my dreams of fame
    I asked my father why
    Does it have to be this way

    [Chorus]

    But wait waait
    Why should this even make a difference though
    I'm human
    I'm just born this way
    We're the same same
    Take your time to get to know me better
    Buy the album and play it
    Now tell me am I worse then you?

    Oh oh oh ohh
    Oh oh oh ohhh
    My Ethnicity babay ay
    Oh oh oh ohh
    Oh oh oh ohhh
    Oh oh oh ohhh
    But I'll never forget my e-ethnicity
    No I'll never forget my e-ethnicity
    [Repeated]
    What's wrong with my e-ethnicity
    I can only be me...
