there's more to be than you think
I'm Chinese
and these
I kung fu fight
cuz they're not all right

real quick
I don't kill dogs
cuz I'm not Michael Vick
I go
nobody binds my toes
I can drive a car
I don't switch my L's and R's

the model minority?
forget genetic superiority
and the Nazis
watch me
climb the ladder
no matter
the color of my skin
cuz my strength comes from within

and I realize
I have small eyes
and my vision isn't 20-20
but I still see plenty
on the other hand you have a closed mind
so you're the one that's blind
