The Lyrics

Okay, this is probably one of the more controversial songs I have ever written. I would like to warn anyone reading this that this song contains some otherwise profane and racial references song so you have been warned.WARNING: This song contains some otherwise profane and racial references. You have been warned, twice.Please do leave a comment. And as a statement, I am not a racist or a homophobic parody writer. I believe in equal opportunity as much as everyone else and I am observing my right of the First Amendment of the United States of America.
Feel like going back to California
Somethings telling me I must go there
I'm quite sure I will end up in the Oakland
Where all them live, them gang bangers are there

If I hitch a ride to San Francisco
I'll end up instead at Sunnyvale
Let's just say I don't wanna go to Castro
That's where the gays, all live their happy lives

From old Sunnyvale to Los Angeles
Hollywood greets me, I must be there
I end up in the East of Los Angeles
I'm going home, back home to Mexico

The prejudice is questionable, but the parody itself is just plain bad. Only decent pacing saves it from a total wipeout. It's not funny, it doesn't make any interesting points, and if you think gay people are happy, then you haven't seen who's been in the White House for the last six years. Come to think of it, if you think straight people are happy... This one didn't get any happier by reading this parody.

Yeah, I kinda made it feel very prejudice but it wasn't intentional. It was based on intolerant person I knew who felt all during this song and he was an illegal immigrant which made the situation worse (got deported). He told me that he went to SanFran and he didn't like it for the reason. The Oakland thing was his account on how he was robbed on his first day on the job. He even moved to LA where it didn't satisfy him so he surrendered himself to the police or some sort of department. The gay and happy thing, it was a double pun. You are not seeing it only.
