Jin Hackman - Banana

(Verse One)
Don’t you ever tell a brother to chill
A Chinese who can’t speak Chinese? Yo, the struggle is real
Some try to instill a sense of guilt in me
And some wouldn’t believe it so they start grilling me
Like “Didn’t your dad teach you a lil Cantonese?”
Nope, he wasn’t around much to begin with, he worked overseas
Now I need my subtitles hardcoded bro
To understand Donnie Yen when he’s not throwing blows
English my first language, BM my second
Learned a little Hokkien but not good enough I reckon
Guess I fit the mold but it’s actually embarrassing
To not know what it’s like to “press 3” for Mandarin

(Chorus x2)
BA NA NA NA BA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA (yellow on the outside, white on the inside)
BA NA NA NA BA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA (yellow on the outside, white on the inside)
BA NA NA NA BA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA (yellow on the outside white on the inside)
BANANA BANANA NA NA NA UH UH

(Verse Two)
You know you’re grandma’s worst grandson
When you can’t carry a convo beyond "cho san"
It’s no fun acting like a rap superstar
If you can’t explain to the mechanic what’s up with your car
I keep getting hustled by my fellow Chinamen
Maybe cause they don’t see me as one of them
But calling me anything else is downright stupid
I’m as Chinese as you and I got my eyes to prove it
Sorry if my accent is leaving you perplexed
At least I can order my dim sum perfect Har gao, siu mai, lo mai gai Yi tan, cha siu bao, homaigawd

(Chorus x2)

(Bridge x2)
Hey man
Don’t get it misconstrued
I ain’t trying to be rude
I ain’t trying to be rude
But the words coming outta your mouth
They got me confused
Yeah, they got me confused

(Chorus x2)

(Scratches)

(Outro)
