The Lyrics

We've all seen the men at the convenient store, buyin all the beer.
the hair on his head is dirty, short brown, and he's not from here.
he asks the clerk up front for some smokes, with dirt on his pants.
she hands him the box, he gives her the dough and he tells her thanks.
-------
and god forbid you ever had to drive a mile in his van
then you really might know what its like to be mexican.
and then you really might know what its like,
then you really might know what its like.... to be mexican.
and then you really might know what its like,
then you really might know what its like.
-------
juanita got pregnant from a guy named rico, he said he had a green card.
he said dont worry bout a thing, i got the thing you been dreamin of.
then 3 months later, he's back to mexico with his best friend juan.
and she swear "ah si" if she find that man, she takin all his flan.
------
so she heads to the farm, and she gets some static drivin through the gate
they call her a chica and they call her bonita and they ask for a date.
and god forbid you ever had to drive a mile in her van.
cause then you really might know what its like to be mexican.
and then you really might know what its like,
and then you really might know what its like
and then you really might know what its like,
and then you really might tknow what its like....
------
Ive seen a mexican steal, ive seen a mexican rob, ive seen a mexican lie.
I've seen them eat some tacos, ive seen them drive their cars, Ive seen a mexican high.
I've seen the bien side of mal ive seen the debajo side of arriba and everything between
I ate the silver burrito, drank from the golden 40 and smoked the finest cambridge
I drove a ten man van at least a couple of times before i broke it down.
You wanna know where it is? You know its ususally ten miles from where it starts.
------

This chico named Paco, he used to eat fat tacos, out on the corner with Raul.
He got the fire sauce, and he put it on, and ate them all.
Til late one night, he was at the latin corner, and paco lost his head
He pulled out a crisp new five, ate twelve tacos and wound up dead.

now his padre and his madre are wonderin why he ate so much
he could have used that five he had for other things like 40's and such.
and god forbid you ever had to wake up and drive that van
cause then you might really know what its like to be mexican...
then you really might know what its like
then you really might know what its like
then you really might know what its like
then you really might know what its like... to be mexican.
