My father says I cannot marry you
Says he forbids me
Says he will ship me back to his land
My mother says shame on you
For trying to use me
Don’t you know she worries that I’ll forget her land

My brother and my sister they’re with me
They say it don’t matter
As long as I remember my identity

So if you promise you’ll never let me forget my land
I will promise I’ll never let you forget your land

If what you said the other day is true then please forgive me
We don’t need to worry that we’ll forget our land
We will hop a train, we will fly a plane, we will walk all day
Through every country
We don’t need to worry, worry, worry if this world is our land
Oh no no no
