La Hija de Mexicanos shouldn’t be sad

Mental health is white people only

For mi gente, it’s just sadness that will pass

La Hija de Mexicanos shouldn’t be sad

Then why is it that I get panic attacks?

Why is it that my heart races, my body shakes and my breath is short?

La Hija de Mexicanos shouldn’t be sad

How do I tell my family that sometimes I can’t get out of bed?

That not even VapoRub can help.

How do I tell mi mami that her sana sana colita de rana is useless?

La Hija de Mexicanos shouldn’t be sad

Depression, que es eso?

Some illness the gringos made up to be lazy.

La Hija de Mexicanos shouldn’t be sad

Solo son nervios míja

La Hija de Mexicanos shouldn’t be sad

I refuse to be sad.

I tell myself “no estoy loca”

No quiero estar loca

Van a pensar que estoy loca

La Hija de Mexicanos shouldn’t be sad

I come from survivors

From people who cross rivers and made-up borders

At a shot of making it in a country that hates them

La Hija de Mexicanos is sad
