The Lyrics

Some parodies are a version of the song you wish the original had been.
If tomorrow all the whites were gone
I'd worked for all my life,
And I had to start again
On unemployment and no wife,
I'd sell my truck and cars
And I'd prob'ly be okay
'Cause I've got my ethnic culture
And they can't take that away--

I'm a hy-phenated American
If you're brown you're down with me!
And I like my enchiladas fried
And my Spanish MTV--
I'm a lad who's tanned up
(Next to you),
I'll defend you, straight or gay!
'Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land...
My Ethno-U.S.A.!

From the barrios of El Paso
To the ghettos of D.C.--
The homeless kids on Main Street
The slums of N.Y.C.--
In migrant camps, Japantowns
From Boston to L.A.
Where there's ethnic pride there's ethnic food
And I gots to say olé!...

I'm a hy-phenated American
And I dig diversity--
And I live for a bite of saag paneer
Or a plate of raw sushi!
And my language stands up
Next to yours
And with equal rights I say:
That there ain't no doubt I love this land...
My Ethno-U.S.A.!

So be proud to be an American
With a hyphened sense of self!
If you're Polish, Nica, French Creole,
Bow down to no one else!
And together stand up
All as one
For the Patriot Act? No way!
Fight for peace and justice in '05
My Ethno-U.S.A.!
ęBob Gomez 2005 See the comments following John Harvey's version if you want to feel really sad about this country.
