Colonize me America
I'm Mexican and I like tacos, but I'm not always in the mood for them.
And I'm American and I like hamburgers, but I'm not always in the mood for them either.
I'm a human being and I'll tell you what I want.
Screw my old world ancestors for taking away my history before I was even born.
But hey guys, thanks for the mole, it’s delicious.
And hey, screw you Wal-Mart and your long lines,
Give me something or give me nothing America
But just let me have my TV for 129.99
Screw you McDonalds and your delicious dollar menus
I’m not obese like the rest of you America, (pats stomach), but I’m sure getting there
Give me the lights and blindfold so I can forget you
Your politics are too boring to listen to and I’m too tired to talk; heck I'm too tired to think
I’ve been at school and work all day, so just let me sit down throw on some Netflix and forget about it
Just give me that TV I told you about, and hey keep the mole coming, some chicken nuggets wouldn’t hurt either, I could put some mole over them
Because hey man, I'll forget the rape and remember some dances every once in a while.
Because I'm a new species of Chicano, I'll hear your 60's folk singer and revel in his lyrics.
And I’ll work really hard just so I can buy that 72 inch blindfold you've been telling me about.
Oooo wweeee that sure is a big blindfold,
And look it’s in HD, and 3D too,
But that’s not gonna last.
The 3D I mean,
The blindfold,
Na, it will always be there.
So colonize me America,
If you haven’t already, which I assure you, you have
But take a second stab because I'm yours for the taking
I'm Mexican and I like tacos but I’m not always in the mood for them
And I'm American and I like hamburgers but I'm not always in the mood for them either
I'm a human being and I'll tell you what I want.
