Hundreds of Stories Song Lyrics


USNAVI
Abuela
ABUELA CLAUDIA
Are you okay?
ABUELA CLAUDIA/USNAVI
Paciencia y fe!
Paciencia y fe!
USNAVI
Let me see it again
ABUELA CLAUDIA
We kept it safe
USNAVI
So we survived the night, what happens today?
ABUELA CLAUDIA
A third for you
USNAVI
Uh huh uh huh
uh huh uh huh
ABUELA CLAUDIA
A third for me
USNAVI
No pare sigue sigue
ABUELA CLAUDIA
The rest for Sonny-
And with our share of the money
And with our share of the money-
Dream of the seaside air
See me beside you there
Think of the hundreds of stories we will share
You and I
USNAVI/ABUELA CLAUDIA
Ay
ABUELA CLAUDIA
Now you can sell your store
Open a bar by the shore
I've told you hundreds of stories about home
Make some more
USNAVI/ABUELA CLAUDIA
More
USNAVI
Yo! I know just where to go
There's a little beach named Playa Rincon
With no roads, you need a rowboat or motorbike
To reach this beach and it's a stone's throw from home
My folks' home
Before I was born
Before they passed on
And left me on my own, in New York, with the grocery store
They would talk about home I listened closely for the way they whispered to each other
'Bout the warmer winter weather
Inseparable, they even got sick together
But they never got better
Passed away that December
And left me with these memories like dyin embers
From a dream I can't remember
Ever since then it's like another day deeper in debt
With different dilemmas,
The bodega's a mess
I'll be seeing less of Vanessa
Abuela, I don't know how I can keep it together
ABUELA CLAUDIA
Remember the story of your name
It was engraved on a passing ship on the day your family came
You father said "Usnavi"
That's what we'll name the baby
USNAVI
It really said "US Navy," but hey
I worked with what they gave me okay
ABUELA CLAUDIA
They'd be so proud of you today
USNAVI
Then by the end of July
ABUELA CLAUDIA
Uh huh uh huh
Uh huh uh huh
USNAVI
Out where the sea meets the sky
ABUELA CLAUDIA
No pare sigue sigue!
USNAVI/ABUELA CLAUDIA
Think of the hundreds of stories we'll create
You and I
ABUELA CLAUDIA
Ay
We'll find your island-
USNAVI
My island sky
ABUELA CLAUDIA
Ay, find your island-
USNAVI
And whatever we do it's
USNAVI/ABUELA CLAUDIA
You and I!
