We are here to stay

Over four hundred years ago

You brought me here to help

Because you could not handle the load

And tend that crop yourself

 

Over four hundred years ago

You forcefully removed me from my home

And brought me this place called America

And made me forget my native tongue

 

I learned to speak your language

And help you build this new place

Invented things to make your life easier

But you still think that I am the inferior race

 

I helped you get a man to the moon

And return him safely back to earth

News flash for those who still don’t believe

This is now my place of birth

 

I am no longer an immigrant

I am an American true blue

And I will not go away quietly

Just because talking about race issues is uncomfortable for youwe are here
