The Lyrics

take the north desert highway, and soon you'll be there
thend rink some mojitos, there's some mexicans there
some are showing resistance, the INS is all right
so have a bevvy and just settle in,
watch the immigrants fight..
right outside the front doorway,
they're screaming bloody hell
and I was thinkin to myself
this could be cancun, that would be swell
several hid in the brambles, then the law went away
and they opened up their humidors, cigars came our way

welcome, we're in oakdale, california
such a lovely place
places to hide here in oakdale caliornia
any time of year, they can't find you here.

enrique's neck was twisted, but now it depends
he got a new back of ice, on his neck it suspends.
he once hid in a graveyard, seen what he said
some hide there remember, some there are just dead..
so I called up the lawman, please come here more times
he said we havent caught a mexican there since 1969
and still those voices are laughine here every day..
cross the border in the middle of the night
just to live and play
welcome, we're in oakdale, california
such a lovely place
places to hide here in oakdale caliornia
any time of year, they can't find you here.

tacos on the ceiling, the quesadilla's nice
and they say, just try the burritos right here, we make them with rice
at siesta chambers, they gather for their sleeps
they try to mask that awful smell, but it still comes from their feet
best thing to remember, if you do come back some more
it's hard to find a passage in this literary lore
relax said the lawman, this town it will receive
thousands more across the rio grande, they will never leave..

welcome, we're in oakdale, california
such a lovely place
places to hide here in oakdale caliornia
any time of year, they can't find you here.

So there's a Latin version of "As the World Turns".

Malcolm, this is hot, hilarious, Sir !! really is . . . the lines are so, . . . well they ring true, in bizarre, Malcolmesque way! This should be a Movie ! "Siesta chambers" & "haven't cuaught an immigrant here since 1969" very true, Sir. This could be Mtn. View, Redwood City. San Jose, Calif. Lord Higuns, KEEP ON WRITING !
