The Lyrics

In April 2000, federal agents raided a Miami house and retrieved Elian Gonzalez to reunite him with his father, who had come from Cuba to the U.S. to bring Elian back.
(instrumental intro)

Way down south in old Miami
Right wing Cubans ran the town
But now their mood's down there
They want to tear their hair
'Cause they're mad at Reno now

And Reno caused them trouble
See, she stands about six feet tall
All the right wing kooks want to run for cover
Republicans hate her for sure

Yeah, they're mad at Reno now
Elian's gone, and they had a cow
Mad that things turned out wrong
Screaming like a big stuck hog

With Reno, they did gamble
When they took the path they chose
Tried to bribe Elian with toys and things
Just to tweak old Castro's nose

We know it's not coincidental
They got this right wing attitude
They thought Republican Huns in the Congress had won
They got so crazed, they came unglued

Yeah, they're mad at Reno now
Elian's gone, and they had a cow
Mad that things turned out wrong
Screaming like a big stuck hog

They weren't willing to let Elian go
Reno played too nice
Went past the deadline too far
And the right wing chorus
Gave these Cubans bad advice

So she sprang surprise upon them
Rescued Elian just as planned
Reno showed them a lesson
'Bout messin' up these no good Republicans

Yeah, they're mad at Reno now
Elian's gone, and they had a cow
Mad that things turned out wrong
Screaming like a big stuck hog

Yeah, they're mad at Reno now
Elian's gone, and they had a cow
Mad that things turned out wrong
Screaming like a big stuck hog

Yeah, they were mad that things had turned out wrong
Screaming like a big stuck hog

So the right wing screamed, "They frightened him!"
And claimed the cops broke down the door
It was by the book, and their scams just fizzled
Now their chance to get Reno's gone

Yeah, they're mad at Reno now
Elian's gone, and they had a cow
Mad that things turned out wrong
Screaming like a big stuck hog

Yeah, they were mad that things turned out wrong
Screaming like a big stuck hog!
