Name That Tune on the Yellow Happy Mini Guitar with Jade Zabric!

I start a “Name That Tune” Series on my Tik Tok @JadeZabric!

Got a little lost with all the songs, so I’m made this page to post them all so I can keep track and not do the same one twice!

How many can YOU guess?

When I Took Your Name

I used to be married to a man and that is how I got the last name Zabric. Spoiler Alert… I’m gay…..
Back when I was married, I tried to bring in another woman and have a polyamorous relationship. He was fine with that, but I was never able to find the right woman. He ended up leaving me for a virgin that he claims he never got with. She left him and he came back, but by then I was living in NYC really discovering women 😉

When I Took Your Name
125 BMP
G G C D

Chorus:
I’m gonna love you for the rest of my life
You showed me love and you made me your wife
You held me down like nobody else could
When I took your name, yeah I took it for good
You are the reason that I’m even out here
I wasn’t going home broken so here I am
There’s no going back
It’s taken me awhile but I’m still on track

Verse:
I wanted my babies to look like you
You weren’t ready we were young and I don’t blame you
I was exploring myself, but
You were the one who left us
You left me for a virgin
Go ahead and tell you church friends
That I’m the devil cause I wanted an abortion
But that’s not what I wanted
I wanted back my husband
I made a promise that I’m always gonna love him

Chorus:
I’m gonna love you for the rest of my life
You showed me love and you made me your wife
You held me down like nobody else could
When I took your name, yeah I took it for good
You are the reason that I’m even out here
I wasn’t going home broken so here I am
There’s no going back
It’s taken me awhile but I’m still on track

Verse 2:
I wasn’t ready to let you go
I was still in love and I wanted you both
You were cool with that, I know
And when I had to, you were the one that I chose
We were building a home, we had our future set
I had a couple of girls, you let it get to your head
I was trying my best to bring it home for us
I never lost my love, I never broke your trust

Chorus:
I’m gonna love you for the rest of my life
You showed me love and you made me your wife
You held me down like nobody else could
When I took your name, yeah I took it for good
You are the reason that I’m even out here
I wasn’t going home broken so here I am
There’s no going back
It’s taken me awhile but I’m still on track

Bridge
I’m always gonna love you, like everyone I’ve ever loved
I never meant to hurt you, I may have wanted more
but that does mean you weren’t enough
I won’t say you weren’t worth it
You had your purpose
And I’m always gonna love you for it

Chorus:
I’m gonna love you for the rest of my life
You showed me love and you made me your wife
You held me down like nobody else could
When I took your name, yeah I took it for good

My Life

My Chronologic Life: 

I was born in Houston, Texas, to John and Sandra, a bartender and a nurse (LVN at the time). We lived in a garage apartment until I was about one and my brother was born and then we moved in with my mother’s parents. 

My father is the oldest of four children. His mother’s line is from Texas as far as I am aware. My father’s father’s family is from southern Mexico, but I’m not sure how far back.

My mother is the fourth of seven children. Her parents are both from Monterey, Mexico and moved to the US as a married couple in their 20s. My grandmother had spent one year when she was 15 years old in San Antonio, Texas. She attended a catholic school and noted that America was worse off then Mexico because it was during the depression and there were food rations but that didn’t happen in Mexico. 

So on my mother’s side, I am second generation American, and on my father’s side I’m not actually sure. I say that I am 5th generation because I know at least 5 generations back, but before that, I’m not sure where they are from. 

To me, I’m an American.

 

When I was 3 years old, I started preschool. During this year my father took at trip to DC to look for work and possibly move our family there. He came back broke and had wasted the money that my parents had saved for a downpayment on a home. He also cheated on my mother and I told her because I was a child and I did not and still do not keep secrets. They divorced. 

When I was 4, my brother started preschool and I went to Prekindergarten. He wasn’t ready for school (he was throwing up each day) and my mother decided to give him another year at home. In my mind, I didn’t want him fall behind so I took it upon myself to teach him the lessons I would learn in school each day. 

During this year, I also took a test to attend the Magnet program at River Oaks Elementary which I remember vividly. The test was administered by the Vice Principle, Mr Talbot. and I remember the questions being easy and thinking I nailed it. The questions were about letters, numbers, shapes and colors. All simple, but remember I was 4. 

Also when I was 4, we had a house fire at house where we lived with my grandparents. It was salvageable, but we had to moved out while it was being fixed, and we never moved back in. Instead my mother, brother and I got a 2 bedroom apartment and for the first time I got my own bed with my very own bed sheets!

At 5 years old, I started Kindergarten at River Oaks Elementary. This school is located in the richest neighborhood in Houston. Ted Cruz lives there now. Bush has a house there. Muhammad Ali was denied when trying to buy a home there, no other reason than racism. Yet here I was at 5, riding the yellow school bus everyday past the gates on to Kirby Drive past all the mansions to my new school. On the first day, my father drove behind the bus the entire way and met me at school to take me to my classroom. (My father never left me and my brother, he was alway present even though my parents divorced and they were “on and off again” many times until I was about 12 years old.)

At this school, I realized the differences between the races. I knew I was Mexican, I knew they were white. I knew they didn’t like us, but I didn’t really understand why. There were also a few black kids at the school, but not many. There was only one other girl that was Mexican and looked like me, but I learned very quickly that she was half white and choose to be that side of her. She didn’t like me and literally told me not to sit next to her anymore.

I was the poorest kid in the class. It was obvious. This class had “Nap Time,” which was a new concept to me, we didn’t take naps in my previous school and now we were to spend an hour after lunch sleeping in sleeping bags. They even gave all kindergartners two lockers, one for the backpack and books and the other for the sleeping bags. I was the only kid in the class without a sleeping bag. Instead I had two towels, I laid one down to sleep on and used the other as a blanket. I don’t remember if I had a pillow or not. I hated nap time.  

Also when I was 5, one of my aunts stole our only car and wrecked it one night after drinking with my mother at our home. 

In my first 5 years, we had so many set backs, the divorce, the fire, the wrecked car, but the silver lining was that I was going to be able to change all that by going to the “white” school. 

So in my kindergarten class, we had a collection of Mercer Meyer books. There were about 25 kids in the class and each week we took one book home to read. I loved them. After school each day, I would sit on my stool next to my grandmother’s rocking chair and read to her while my mom was at work. My grandmother didn’t speak english very well so at the same time I was learning to read, I was also teaching her. Often, I would have a question about a word and neither one of us knew so we had to figure it out. 

In 1st grade I made my first friend. His name was Gabriel and he was Mexican like me, but he was a grade below me and so I only saw him on the bus before and after school. The 45 minute ride home was my favorite time of the day. The bus dropped me off at my grandma’s house where I would wait until my mom would get off work and take me and my brother home. So even though we had moved out, I still saw my grandma every day almost and I spent the most time with her. 

When I started first grade at River Oaks, my brother started Kindergarten at the neighborhood school because he didn’t get into the program that I had gotten into. We had sibling rivalry, but really I wanted him to get the same tools I got. I didn’t want a stupid brother, so I remember being very hard on him and trying to teach him all the time. A year later, when he was in 1st grade and I was in 2nd, he joined me at River Oaks.

Also in 1st grade, something crazy happened. I was six years old and was curious about the differences between girls and boys. I knew the physical differences, that my brother had a penis and I didn’t. But I didn’t know anymore than that and so I was talking about it with a girl in my class at school. We were wondering where girls peed from. A simple question we thought and we wanted to go investigate. So we went into the bathroom to try to look at each other peeing. Of course we were caught and my mother received a call at home. My mother’s reaction to this was to have a family conversation. She talked to me and my brother about sex. She drew a picture of a boy and a girl. She said that boys have penises and girls have vaginas which is like a hole for the penis. And they fit together and that’s how babies are made. She also said it was for adults to do only and that even then, you shouldn’t do it unless you are ready to have a baby, because that’s what happens. Then, she said that since it’s for adults, a lot of parents don’t want their kids to know about it. So we weren’t allowed to talk about it at school with anyone, unless we were already sure that they knew what it was. My mom was very open and honest about things which made me feel like an adult. Learning about sex at 6 years old didn’t make me go out and have sex, it gave me the knowledge to make better choices and be more aware of my surroundings.

My first couple of years at the school were good, I didn’t have any friends except Gabriel. The girl’s mom from that incident probably told her to stay away from me too. I just focused on school and spent my recess time playing in the dirt. Literally, at school they built this huge sandbox called the “Sand Lake.” It even had a water faucet so that we could make rivers. It was amazing, but messy.

I also developed a friendship with the janitors at the school. They had a vending machine in their break area that sold RC Cola for 25 cents and after school on the way the buses, I would pass by to buy one. This wasn’t open to the students, but they were cool with me and it made me feel special.

 

 

 

All My Cards

All My Cards

 

Female

Homosexual

Mexican to you

Chicana 

I’m American to me

I served in the US Air Force

I went to NYU

I quit before I went in Debt

I saved myself

Nobody’s coming to the rescue

Mestizos

Mestizos

 

Mestizo is a human of mixed race

Traditionally Indigenous and Spanish

But it really could be any mix

Extensively White and Black

All inclusively let’s say it means you are mixed 

with two or more cultures

And what a beautiful world that would be

Mixed kids are the future

Segregation is over

We are the American Dream

We are the American Dream

 

We are the American dream

My family was poor and now we have what we need

Food is on the table

There’s a roof above my head

And each of us has our own individual bed

We know how to read and write

We know how to clean

We know what hard work feels like 

And we work as a team

 

Although I don’t know how to show it sometimes

I hope that they know it

That even though I seem closed off, 

I’m totally open

I know if I need help they got me 

and vice versa

 

Through rhymes I’m beginning to understand the meaning of life

 

Nothing is worth more than what what we work for

Respect is what we work towards

 

February 11th, 2021

I’ve retreated, posted less on social media, quit reaching out to people. I have been taking the Covid Pandemic extremely seriously. To the point that I didn’t want to see others that weren’t taking it seriously. As much as I want to return to normal life, I don’t want rush and catch the virus after being so good for almost a year. If I am anything, it is patient. So if anybody feels like I dipped, I did and it’s gonna take a min to get back.

I reopened my songbook and have been falling in love with my old tunes, learning piano and drums and syncing with my guitar again. I’ve signed up for a course that will take music industry knowledge to the next level in addition to graduating this May from Baruch college. I’ll soon have a degree in Music! I’ve also joined a certain app that has motivated me to get out there. (It’s Clubhouse, it’s amazing. *hint: sign up for it even if you don’t have an invite yet to reserve your username*) 

A big hurdle I have is figuring out where to focus my energy. Playing music and writing songs is easy, but then what do you do with them? No more busking, I have to go live somewhere, but where?   

Since I’ve been reawakening, I’ve been asked to be a part of three projects! 

Friday, Feb 12: I’ll be performing with my student club, Lexington Music at 6pm (Eastern).

Saturday, Feb 13th: I’ll be performing for an Online Lesbian Speed Dating Event. 530pm (Eastern)

Next Saturday, Feb 20: I will be performing live and interviewed on  Off Stage Tunes . 11am (Eastern)

I will be going live on my own soon. Communicating is not my strong suit, I’m a worker bee and I miss the trains, but I will try to talk more. And I appreciate that when I opened myself up again, I was received. Let’s GO 2021!

 

 

 

War For Sale

 

 

War for Sale

Chorus:
G Bm C Cm
I got ten thousand troops
We’ve got nothing to do
Let’s cause a riot, raise some hell
Maybe we’ll get on the news
G B7 C Cm
War for Sale
Who’s gonna buy us now?
Who’s gonna sell as out?

Verse 1:
Em C G D
I was 18 years old
I didn’t know what to do
My country was at war so I went to war too
Em C G D
I’m proud of who I am
Defender of my land
Divided we fall united we stand
Em C G D
But what do we stand for?
But what do we stand for?

 

 

How Life Sounds

Chorus:
C G
Give me your words and I’ll put them to song
Give me an idea and I’ll have the world singing along
This is what this life is all about
This is how life sounds, This is how life sounds, This is how life sounds

Verse 1:
Em Em Em Am Em Em Am C G B7
Tell me who you are, Tell me who you were, Tell me who you wanna be
Tell me who you love, Tell me who you hurt,
Tell me who you wish you hadn’t let get away, and what you would say
Em Em Em Am Em Em Am C G B7
Tell me how you feel, Tell me how you deal, Tell me how your’re struggling
Tell me how you live, Tell me how you love,
Tell me how much fun you’d have if you’d got away, the chance you didn’t take

Chorus

Verse 2:
Em Em Em Am Em Em Am C G B7
Tell me ’bout the mood, ’bout the attitude, tell me ’bout the undertones
How you want the feel, and fantasy or real, and if you want it vague or completely exposed
Tell me your woes

Bridge:
C Em Am D7
I’ll write you a memoir, a sweet seranade
Your own very theme song, by miss amanda jade
G F E E7
A relic of memories or idea manifest
Tell me your story and I’ll tell the rest
Tell me your story and I’ll tell the rest

Beautiful

  • “Beautiful” is an anthem for girls (and boys) who know who they are. They are beautiful and don’t need validation because they have already found it in themselves.

I wrote it after being told too many times that I was too pretty to be a lesbian.

Well I think I’m too pretty to be straight.

Lyrics:

I know I am beautiful
I don’t need you to tell me so
Don’t think you know me
You ain’t figured me out

I know I am beautiful
I don’t need you to tell me so
Don’t think you know me
You ain’t figured me out

Never cared too much for fashion
I just wanted to be comfortable
I DO NOT PAIN FOR PRETTY!
I’m already beautiful!

I ain’t wearing no high heels
I ain’t doing my nails
You can put that mascara
Back on the self

‘Cause, I know I am beautiful
I don’t need you to tell me so
Don’t think you know me
You ain’t figured me out

I know I am beautiful
I don’t need you to tell me so
Don’t think you know me
You ain’t figured me out

My music is my passion
Listen and appreciate
What I’m wearing doesn’t matter
I’m more than a pretty face

I love myself
You can’t rain on this parade
‘Cause I tell me I’m pretty
Each and every single day

I know I am beautiful
I don’t need you to tell me so
Don’t think you know me
You ain’t figured me out

I know I am beautiful
I don’t need you to tell me so
Don’t think you know me
You ain’t figured me out

I know, with a look in the eye
I can have any guy
Take him home for the night
And I take pride
in the fact that I decide
Who I want
Oooh,
This must be your lucky day!
I’m way too pretty to be straight!
And just as sexy in the morning…

I know I’m hot
I see when I take my clothes off
I look in the mirror and I say to myself
This don’t belong to nobody else
This don’t belong to no one but me
I got everything I need
Yeah, I’m already BEAUTIFUL!

I know I am beautiful
I don’t need you to tell me so
Don’t think you know me
You ain’t figured me out

I know I am beautiful
I don’t need you to tell me so
Don’t think you know me
You ain’t figured me out

I know I am beautiful
I don’t need you to tell me so
Don’t think you know me
You ain’t figured me out

I know I am beautiful
I don’t need you to tell me so
Don’t think you know me
You ain’t figured me out
