A Bowl Of Rice

作詞:順子    作曲:順子/Joe'B'Baamil
TAKIN' MY LITTLE VOYAGE AGAIN
THINKIN' BACK INTO MY CHILDHOOD LAND
DRINKIN' THE WHITE MILK SHE FORCED ME TO
HERSHEY'S CHICILATE SYRUP ON SUNDAYS, TOO
POURIN' TASTELESS WHITE MILK INTO THE SINK
HOPIN' THAT GRANDMA DIDN'T SEE ME DONIN' IT
COULDN'T DRINK NOTHIN' WITHOUT COLOUR IN IT
HATIN' COLOURLESS SOCIETY AND PROVIN' IT
WATCHING TOO MUCH T.V. FOR A CHINESE GIRL
LIVING IN A NEW COUNTRY CALLED AMERICA
YES SHE'S BEAUTIFUL, SHE'S GOT HER SPACIOUS SKIES
BUT WHAT ABOUT THE UGLY PARTS THE CONQUERORS HIDE?
CHORUS:A BOWL OF RICE IS A BOWL OF MEMORIES
SHOVIN' IT DOWN OUR HUNGRY THROATS
A CUP OF TEA IS A CUP OF TEARS
FLOODIN' DOWN OUR THIRSTY THROATS
SO I WRITE A SONG TO KEEP
THE MEMORIES OF YOU AND ME
IT SHALL KEEP US WARM AT NIGHT
EVEN TOHGH YOU'RE OUT OF SIGHT
BEING HIT IN FIRST GRADE BY A LITTLE BLACK GIRL
I KNEW SHE FELT TRAPPED IN HER UNJUST WORLD
SHE NEEDED SOMEONE TO BEAT BECAUSE SHE, TOO, WAS BEING BEAT
BY THE SAME SOCIETY I LEARNED LATER DREADED ME……
THE EYELINE I WAS BLESSED WITH MADE MY FEEL SUPERIOR
WATCHIN' SISTERS SLICE UP THEIRS, WHO FELT INFERIOR?
THINGS ARE NOT THE SAME WHEN THE EAST MEETS THE WEST
A FOGGY GLIMPSE IS WHAT THEY GOT OF 美國 BEAUTIFUL WEST
CHORUS:A BOWL OF RICE IS A BOWL OF MEMEORIES
SHOVUN' IT DOWN OUR HUNGRY THROATS
A CUP A TEA IS A CUP OF TEARS
FLOODIN' DOWN OUR THIRSTY THROATS SO I WRITE A SONG TO KEEP
THE MEMORIES OF YOU AND ME
IT SHALL KEEP US WARM AT NIGHT EVEN THOUGH YOU'RE OUT OF SNGHT
A BOWL OF RICE IS A BOWL OF MEMORIES
SHOVIN' IT DOWN OUR HUNGRY THROATS
A CUP OF TEA IS A CUP OF TEARS
FLOODIN' DOWN OUR THIRSTY THROATS
SO I WRITE A SONG TO KEEP
THE MEMORIES OF YOU AND ME
IT SHALL KEEP US WARM AT NIGHT
EVEN TOHGH YOU'RE OUT OF SIGHT
EVEN TOHGH YOU'RE OUT OF SIGHT
EVEN TOHGH YOU'RE OUT OF SIGHT
EVEN TOHGH YOU'RE OUT OF SIGHT
EVEN TOHGH YOU'RE OUT OF SIGHT
EVEN TOHGH YOU'RE OUT OF SIGHT
EVEN TOHGH YOU'RE OUT OF SIGHT
EVEN TOHGH YOU'RE OUT OF SIGHT
