Hey Amnesty
A parody song by Steve Bryant
(Originally recorded by the Gin Blossoms, new lyrics by Steve Bryant)

A follow up to the Star Spangled Banner. Although the illegal immigration bill has been defeated, I fear it's just a matter of time until they pass it or something similar. - Steve

 


Does my green card look alright,
I made it up last night.
Don’t say that I’m illegal,
Or you’re looking for a fight.

You know I got feelings, too,
As I take your job from you.
And if you’re not really careful,
I’ll take your country, too.

Tomorrow, I can cut the Gringo’s lawn,
Before amnesty’s withdrawn.
When it is, then I’ll be gone, but I’ll be back,

Hey amnesty.
Hey amnesty.
Hey amnesty.
Hey amnesty.

You can trust me not to care,
When I go on welfare.
I came here with such surety,
Where’s my social security

I couldn’t stay in Mexico,
They don’t pay that much, you know.
There’re 11 million of us
Just watch our numbers grow

Tomorrow, I can cut the Gringo’s lawn,
Before amnesty’s withdrawn.
When it is, then I’ll be gone, but I’ll be back,

Hey amnesty.
Hey amnesty.
Hey amnesty.
Hey amnesty.

(Guitar Solo)


Tomorrow, I can cut the Gringo’s lawn,
Before amnesty’s withdrawn.
When it is, then I’ll be gone, but I’ll be back,

Hey amnesty.
Hey amnesty.
Hey amnesty.
Hey amnesty.

Do you think it’d be alright,
To cross the Rio Grande tonight?
We still don’t have amnesty,
But they’re putting up a fight.

They still want our votes.
They’d even slit their mother’s throats.
The President and Congress,
Have all become turncoats.

Tomorrow, I can cut the Gringo’s lawn,
Before amnesty’s withdrawn.
When it is, then I’ll be gone, but I’ll be back,

Hey amnesty.
Hey amnesty.
Hey amnesty.
Hey amnesty.
