The Lyrics

ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh lay
ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh lay
we come from the land of ol' mexico
to the golden state where the grape crops grow

we're hammered by the feds
they ship us back to our land
but back we pour
living and thriving
eu-re-ka...we are coming

in we creep
right through the door
our only goal is to get in once more

ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh lay
ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh lay
we come from the land of ol' mexico
its a midnight run and we're set to go

how rich, your fields of green
the "migra" we abhor
oh, how we swarm
for this is war
we work for gringo lords

earn our keep
though pay is poor
our only goal is just a job to score

if you've got better crops
its cause of work we're doin'
life's sweet for us
we shout ole'
despite of all our bruisin'

ole'...ole'...ole'
ole'...ole'...ole'

Yes, alvin, an awful lot of people complain about them - Except when they can USE them to suit their own purposes (including politicians who USE them as someone to bash and then vote for bills that leave a lot of loopholes so their favorite Agricultural or Manufacturing companies and still employ & exploit them)...I'll pay you three 5's for all your hard work on this parody and not a penny more...
