Tyrone, all our families used to speak
that language here
And then slowly people stopped
They lost it.
It got taken away or they forgot it
or it got covered up by that shame
We’re lucky we still go it
But if we make people shame for speaking that language,
they’re not gonna speak it
And then we won’t have it anymore
And our mob will get really lonely for that language
Like lots of us already are
And this country, our country that we’re on here,
It gets really lonely for that language too
Do you understand?
