Chavao’ Acento

Angela sin acento

I say

I say it all the time

Ángela lleva acento

They answer back

But I just ignore them

Mi mamá no es bruta

She named me, you know

She knew what she was doing

No importa, Ángela lleva acento

The dictionary says so

I read it all the time

Angela no lleva acento

I would know

It is my name, after all

No, Ángela lleva acento

It’s the rules

Do you not understand?

Angela no lleva acento

It’s officially that way

And then I explain to them why…

Because I’m too cool for rules

El acento is ugly to the sight

My name is written in English

Y mi mamá no tiene tres pelos de bruta

Idiota, she knew what she was doing.
