LYRIC



They told her, In America nobody works hard. They all live in big houses and they marry movie stars. They said, You’re the one – we’re too old. Now go on, get all the money…. bring it all on home.

So go on girl, have a look at the world. She didn’t want to go, but her family’s kinda poor. Met in L.A. by an uncle she couldn’t remember. Said, Welcome to paradise my little “morsel tender”. Got a job under the table as a night-time guard. But now eyes were on the sky: a U.S. Greencard.

NO REFUNDS NO GUARANTEES THEY TAKE YOUR MONEY THEN THEY TAKE YOUR PRIVACY WHERE DO YOU GO AT NIGHT? AND WHAT DO YOU DRINK? WE ALWAYS WATCHING YOU …. SO YOU BETTER NOT BLINK

Democratic convention, downtown L.A. Same day Rage Against The Machine done played Waitin’ for her number at the INS Waiting to get legal in this land of excess.

Now it’s two years gone, and still no Greencard. They say she’s gettin’ closer, but she’s still so far. She’s tired of these lines, tired of these fines. Tried to pay ‘em off, but they wouldn’t take a bribe. Stuck holding ticket number 811, but the light on the wall says 107. Seven-hundred and four ‘til they get to her turn. Let this mofo burn, let this mofo burn.

Her number came up…and guess what ? They denied her ass, that’s some messed-up luck. But a young chola with tear-tats on her eyes dropped upon her, some words of the wise.

Why don’tcha go down to McArthur Park ? In an hour you can have license and passport. For five-hundred dollars you can be all set, either to work or to get your welfare check.

So she rode her bicycle down sixth street to where the brothers play b-ball and the dealers creep. She told one of them players, Yo… I need I.D. He said, hold on, Buttercup…let me call my boy “Z”.

“Z” showed up and asked for half the dough Then he took of her a digital photo And said, Come back in an hour-my little orange flower You will soon be resident in the land of milk and power Welcome to America, Baby.

Now she gotta new name, but she’s still got that face And now it’s time she rip the roof of this place
