A song about feminism written in English and Spanish to honor my upbringing.


Verse 1:
I grew up
With some fears and doubts
But they soon were
Gone, gone, gone, gone
Every time I’ve been pushed down
Or bossed around
I’ve gotten up, and moved
On, on, on, on

My mama told me
When I was young
Girls can be petty
And boys can be dumb

Yo soy guerrera
Soy mujer
Yo soy alguien que confía
En su ser
Yo soy poderosa
Soy un río
Y nadie puede quitarme
Lo que es mío
Yo soy guerrera

Verse 2:
My favorite word
Is no, because
I know I have to prove them
Wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong
When I am told to
Give up, on something
You can bet I’ll stand
Strong, strong, strong, strong

Pre-Chorus 2:
My mama told me
When I was young
Girls can be petty
And boys can be dumb
But if you believe in yourself
Anything can be done

(Chorus) x3

Yo soy guerrera
Yo soy guerrera
