Uh, check it check it check it out
Yo, yo
listen up
First name Jin
, Jin is my Chinese name
All you have to do is look at the tattoo on my neck
Whether young or old
Thanks for your support, it’s really not easy
An ABC has to look carefully in the mirror
They want to know how I speak Chinese so well
“Did you study the language with a tutor?” not me
As a kid I use to watch a lot of TVB
My favorite shows starring Mr. Leung he was so cool
As well as others I even know the theme songs
“Working hard all day and night with no rest”
It doesn’t matter how I say it, just as long as you know…

Chorus: (x2)
ABC that’s me, that’s me
No matter how you look at it, that’s me
That’s right, that’s right
ABC that’s me, that’s me
(You know that’s me)

Don’t worry about where I was born
A birth certificate is only a sheet of paper
I ask you, “What’s so bad about being an ABC?”
Even if I am, don’t take me as an idiot
In the blink of an eye
I’ve already been in the US for 24 years
I’m 24 this year and not much has changed
Time sure flies
It seems like only yesterday I was 7 years old drinking soy milk
If I ever acted like I was “all-that”
Don’t blame me, take it as I was only a child that didn’t know better
I bet you wouldn’t even know if I didn’t tell you
That’s why I have to clarify it at this moment that…

Repeat Chorus x2

You say I’m not officially Chinese, “Who are you?”
In the eyes of foreigners I am “yellow skinned,” just like you
Even though we come from two different worlds
But it’s pretty much the same, so don’t treat me otherwise (T/N: literally translated, “don’t step on me”)
August 15th and Lunar Festival, we celebrate it all the same
Chinese New Year is a time to collect red bags
Get dim sum and whatnot, or maybe even playing some cards
Au Yeung Jin, exactly who is he?
Nobody knows him better than me
Simply put, he is three letters
Which three?

Repeat Chorus x2

Yea, Jin
You know that’s me
