The Lyrics


Quinceanera. Please, mija, come to your senses.
Baby, it’s too expensive to do all that.
Sure, you’re our favorite, but won’t you listen to reason?
You’ve maxed out our Visa, and we can’t pay it back.

Don’t you wanna go to college, girl,
At least that beauty trade school?
Then the pink and turquoise limo has to go.
And it seems to me that layer cake’s
As tall as our sweet angel.
Yes, we had your dress expressed from Mexico.

No dinero. Banco de Papa’s gone under,
And it makes me wonder how this all began.
Your sisters, your sisters, they all wanna be like you.
You might want to lighten up your list of demands.

All the disco lights and the fog machines,
We hope you get what it really means –
We’re doing all we can to let you know,
Ambos padres love you very much.
We could really never do enough, and so…your…

Quinceanera. Maybe we’ve all lost our senses,
But all of these presents, they’re just on loan.
One day you’ll leave us. Oh, but it won’t be forever.
Familia ties cannot be severed.
(And it just gets better!)
One day we all will live together in your lovely…home!

Quinceanera = (L America and US) a celebration of a girl's 15th birthday Mija = term of endearment given to a young girl by an elder (mijo = young boy)/ Banco de Papa = Bank of Dad/ Ambos padres = both (of your) parents/ Familia = (really, you have to look? Okay, it means "family". Seriously, you gotta brush up on your basic Spanish) B > )

Wouldn't "ambos padres" be more like "both sides of the family" Hispanics dont blur traditional gender lines by calling women "padres" In fact, they seem to be the group that's most resistant to that

I believe when grouping both parents together, the masculine is not uncommon, like “mankind” in English. Actually, I did ask one of my Mexican friends who is from Mexico, and for whom Spanish is their primary language, what would be the correct term for “parents” in Spanish, then verified with a few of my other Mexican friends, then finally checked a translation site I like to use, just to see what it would say, and all verified “ambos padres” was the correct term to use in general, and was used correctly in this context. I try very hard to make sure nothing in my parodies would offend anyone. If a reader who speaks Spanish as a primary language reads this parody and wants to weigh in, I would be very interested to know what they think. Anyway, thanks for checking my lyrics out, and for your comments. Peace. Brad

A local limo company is advertising its new stretched vehicle as perfect for, among other events, a quinceñero. Holds 15 people. Nice party. If you want to ride around Kansas City in style.
