The Lyrics

If you use your phone and pen
It isn't hard to act
You don’t need the votes you lack to win
But if you wait for lawfulness
You might just as well give up
It always seems to be so hard to spin

Amnesty is such a lovely word
Even if it’s so untrue
Amnesty is patently absurd
But mostly what we need from you

We don’t want Republicans
Who do not sympathize
And then say illegals have to leave
We’d rather want Obama’s face
To tell more pretty lies
All we want is someone who deceives

Amnesty is such a lovely word
Even if its so untrue
Amnesty is patently absurd
But mostly what we need from you

Obama’s our amigo
Obama is our friend
We can have security
Until the bitter end
Nobody can deport us
We promise not again
You know, you know

When we’ve got jobs instead of them
Don’t be too concern
We’ll vote Democratic when your gone
So when we’re seeking amnesty
Tell us where else can we turn
Cause you're the one that we depend upon

Amnesty is such a lonely word
Even if it’s so untrue
Amnesty is patently absurd
And mostly what I need from you
