Alvin's Song

Lyrics by Suzy Red, Melody and Performance by Liz Sanchez

I am boy named Alvin Ho,
I can cook and I can throw.
I love explosions, and war games,
But, at school, I'm not the same.

I survive.
With my box.
Garlic pod,
Dental floss,
Scary mask.

Allergic to all girls but Mom,
Not allergic to a bomb.
Allergic to my teachers, too.
At school I'm silent. I am blue.
