The Lyrics

Viva la migra! No mas mojados!
Hey, mojados
Why don't you come to your senses?
you've been out climbing fences
for so long now

in Arizona
and out in California
And every state with a border town

You come to live the American dream
to buy houses, cars and things
But you know you aint legal, you aint right
and your whole life is nothin but a game
avoid the INS and the shame
But you know you'll never see the light

Yes, mojados
you know you're living a lie
so don't even try to justify it all
you'll do anything to avoid deportation
you know the risks and they are not small

you left your home in Mexico
north of the border you hurried to go
just like your friends eduardo and juan
the immigration system you choose to plunder
our border situation is torn asunder
doesn't your conscience tell you that you're wrong?

Yes, mojados
you know you're playin with fire
one day you'll get burned and you'll piss and moan
so watch your back, and learn to cover your tracks
and don't let the INS catch you
don't let the INS catch you
no, don't let the INS catch you
and send you back home

Well, you see the argument is that California BELONGS to Mexico, so they're just returning to their homeland. Course, California belongs to just about every ethnic group, but anyway...

Careful, Tim, Spain might come in and say, "Wait a minute..." And then the Indians...

California does *not* belong to Mexico, it's part of the sovereign United States of America. Mexico had it at one point in time, and we had it prior to that (research Kennewick man), so in essence, we merely took it back once again.
