Native Tongue

Oh sister, oh sister
You’ve so much to learn

Oh sister, oh sister
You’ve so much to learn

The girl that you are
The woman you will be
The world from afar
Gets closer than you think

There’s a language you were born with
There’s a look in your eyes
If I only teach you one thing
Remember this advice

You’ve got to walk like you have it
You’ve got to move like you own this place
You’ve got to walk like you have it
You’ve got to use your native tongue

Oh brother, oh brother
You’ve so much to learn

Oh brother, oh brother
You’ve so much to learn

The heroes of youth
The villains of pride
Then you learn how to kiss
And you learn how to fight

There’s a language you were born with
There’s a look in your eyes
If I only teach you one thing
Remember this advice

You’ve got to walk like you have it
You’ve got to move like you own this place
You’ve got to walk like you have it
You’ve got to use your native tongue

Oh sister, oh sister
You’ve so much to learn

Oh brother, oh brother
You’ve so much to learn
