Track Name: Rich Little Poor Girl
When I was just a little girl
my mama used to sew my clothes for me
dresses of pinks, blues, and yellows
cuz not much at the store fit me

I went to school pretty much every day
in a dress and a matching bow
I never thought much about the way that I seemed
until, a boy.

He was 3 foot 5 with brown hair, brown eyes
and a dimple that made me swoon
we were standing in the hallway
in the third grade
when he said to me thing

ARE YOU RICH, GIRL?
ARE YOU RICH, GIRL?
TELL ME,ARE YOU A RICH GIRL?
ARE YOU RICH, GIRL?
YOUR DRESS LOOKS FINE GIRL.
TELL ME, ARE YOU A RICH GIRL?

I’d never thought about
all these things before
what was rich, what was poor?

I was 3 foot two, with brown hair brown eyes
and skinny as a rail
We were standing in the hallway in the third grade
So I said to him this thing:

I DON’T KNOW, BOY
I DON’T KNOW, BOY
NO ONE’S TOLD ME IF I’M RICH OR POOR
ARE YOU RICH, BOY?
ARE YOU A RICH BOY?
THEN MAYBE YOU CAN TELL ME WHAT ALL
RICH GIRLS DO…

I think that asking someone else might be
rude.
Track Name: Passing for Invincible
I called up an old high school friend yesterday
to drum up a story
about the two years when we were all young
in a small Texas town

we were wild and we were reckless
We were reckless and we were free

WE WERE INVINCIBLE, INVINCIBLE,
INVINCIBLE WE WERE
INVINCIBLE, INVINCIBLE,
AND NOBODY SAID WE WERE WRONG

We were all athletes and they were all white
While me and Inayah were passing

WE WERE INVINCIBLE, INVINCIBLE,
INVINCIBLE WE WERE
INVINCIBLE, INVINCIBLE,
AND WE DIDN’T SAY SAID THEY WERE WRONG

One spring afternoon we snuck out of school
to go eat some tacos
We came back to campus, happy and unafraid
and then we got busted
we were so busted

All they told us was “be more discreet”
Next time you go out to eat

THEY WERE INVINCIBLE,
INVINCIBLE, INVINCIBLE WE WERE
INVINCIBLE, INVINCIBLE,
AND THEY DIDN’T SAY SAID IT WAS WRONG
Track Name: Oh Mother
Track 3: Oh Mother
She did not wait
to be told who were
She told the world
these babies will rise

WIth our name, with our culture,
with my knowledge, and belief

I BELIEVE, I BELIEVE, I BELIEVE
IN YOU.
She would weep
weep tears for
the war she wages for
for all sisters,
and brothers

Tears of pride, tears o progress
tears of fear, tears of joy


I BELIEVE, I BELIEVE, I BELIEVE
IN YOU.

You will be wise
You will win races
You will be seen
the roots of our chains
begin
the roots of all change
it begins

in the heart, in the mind,
in the theory and the spirit

I BELIEVE, I BELIEVE, I BELIEVE
IN YOU.
