"Come Here By Law"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

My feeble attempt at combating illegal immigration. TOS should not be confused with the Nirvana song of the same title.
They had a protest, over immigration
Down in LA where so many of them live
Their signs demanding, all you Gringos get out
Piece of my mind, I'd like to give

Come here by law, like we did
You wait your turn, like others in line
To heck with all of your demands
Come here by law, and you'll be just fine

You should be learning, when you ask for your rights
All your rights come with responsibilities
Get a green card, is it such a hard task?
People, why is this too much to ask?

Obey our law, earn respect
Defy our law, and go straight to Heck
I don't want Dubya's scamnesty
Come here by law, and you'll be like me

I saw you waving, out there at your protest
Mexican flags, such a pretty sight to see
But if you think Mexico is so great
Well then, why did you leave?

Come here by law, like we did
You get in line, so we'll have no doubts
Don't wanna have no scamnesty
Come here by law, or stay the hell out
Disclaimer: I did not invent the term "scamnesty". The credit for that goes to the Center For Individual Freedom.
