The Lyrics

This song parody is dedicated to Mexican soap star/singer Thalia, who recently married Tommy Mottola, the President of Sony Music (Mariah Carey's ex-husband). She's been desperately trying to cross over into the American market for years. I believe this is part of her evil plot for world domination through her squeaky voice and bad acting, and it might just become a reality, especially now that she's got a brand new cash cow. Be afraid. Be very afraid.
Mexico City
It's the U.S. from here
I will not stop
I believe crossover has brought me here
And I should be a diva now
But I'm not
I've slept with old man Diaz-Ordaz*
And I've shaken my tits and my ass

I try to sing a song and I choke
Try to act in soaps and I gurgle
Though I try to hide it, it's clear
I've no talent but I can suck d*ck
Sing songs and I croak
I try to act in soaps and I gurgle
Though I try to hide it, it's sick
I've no talent but I can suck d*ck

I just married old Tommy
But I'm just a prisoner of his dough
And I learned English so I can be Madonna
But my accent is so strong
Is so strong, hey
I play with ignorant people's bad taste
And I even have my own eyewear line

I try to sing a song and I choke
Try to act in soaps and I gurgle
Though I try to hide it, it's sick
I've no talent but I can suck d*ck
Sing songs and I croak
I try to act in soaps and I gurgle
Though I try to hide it, it's clear
I've no talent but I can suck d*ck

Here is my confession
I might be Tommy's possession
Mariah's bad sub
In bed and in the tub
With all his cash I try
But this I can't deny
Deny
I've slept with old man Diaz-Ordaz
(but I'm dreaming of dough babe)
And I've shaken my tits and my ass

I try to sing a song and I choke
Try to act in soaps and I gurgle
Though I try to hide it, it's clear
I've no talent but I can suck d*ck
*Grandpa in Mexico (an older equivalent of Mottola) who gave Thalia her first big break when she was 17 or so.
