QUEERO- words and music by Rev. Yolanda

Om Kring Kalikaye Namaha (3x)
Vs. 1
D
I knew a girl
G
they called her Queero
D
She was my friend
G
she was my shero
A.
we would proclaim
G
that we were witches
C G
We'd cast spells
D
on bullies and bitches
Chorus:
D
We'd say
double double toil and trouble
fire burn and cauldron bubble
(repeat G repeat D and back and forth)

(over the chant)
D G
I burn away my shame
D G
I burn away my pain
D G D
I am a QUEERO
D G D
I am a QUEERO

Vs 2:
D
In jr high 
G
she became a cheerleader
D
and I became 
G
the one who was queerer.
A
And when everyone else
G
Were embarrassed of me…
C G
Queero became
D
Like family
Chorus:
D
We'd say
double double toil and trouble----
fire burn and cauldron bubble
(repeat G repeat D and back and forth)

(over the chant)
D G
We burn away my shame
D G
We burn away my pain
D G D
We are QUEERO
D G D
We are QUEERO

BRIDGE:
D G
My family moved away and we lost touch.
The pain of losing Queero was too much.
But the memories of our friendship made me strong
To face my hardships for many years to come.
My Facebook searches found the woman who grew from that girl.
I finally felt her loving embrace at my Mother's funeral.
Vs 3:
D
She's still my friend
G
she's still my shero
D
Living in our hometown
G
she fights for rights  
D
for all of us queeros 
A
we still cast spells
G
on bullies and bitches
C G
cause me and Queero
D
Are powerful witches

Chorus:
we say double double toil and trouble
fire burn and cauldron bubble (repeat)


(Add) Om Kring Kalikaye Namaha 
We burn away our shame
We burn away our pain
We are QUEERO
We are QUEERO
