Forever Chamorro

Somebody asked me where I come from
I gave my usual reply
mom and dad, they are both from GUAM
but I am americanized

Born on the mainland back in 58
I grow up pretending that I was nothing more
than the boy next door your average american guy

I couldnt face I was something much more diffe’rent than the rest of my friends
Grandpa Juan he’d say, » listen here, son, I am proud of the land from where I came »
and he’d say «FOREVER CHAMORRO» you’ll always be the home in my heart

Seasons may change and our lives rearranged
and I am so glad we’re never apart
some years gone by, I must confess Id get those feelings inside
I cannot run from my heritage
and my own homeland tonight

I didn’t even know what my history was
didnt even know where to begin
dad and mom they’d say, » listen here, son,
we’re glad of the land from where we came»
and they’d say «FOREVER CHAMORRO
»
you’ll always be the home in heart»

Seasons they change and our lives rearranged
but I am so glad we’re never apart something inside me
led me to explore the names and faces that have gone
before a people of warmth and generosity
a people of courage, a people of dignity

So when somebody asks me where I come from
I give a heartfelt reply

Mom and dad they are both from GUAM
and now I realize that I am FOREVER CHAMORRO

Forever chamorro
Forever chamorro

I am so glad we’re never apart
yes I am forever chamorro
Forever chamorro
