The Lyrics

The story of a hopeful group of Mexicans who get deported after sneaking across the border to San Diego...
The mama Tijuana rolled out a bed
And she ran to the border station
When the papa found out he began to shout
And he started the celebration

It's against the law
It was against the law
What the mama saw
They had found a flaw.

The mama look down and crawled on the ground
As they snuck ast the border station
The papa said, "Oy, we're close, oh boy!
I'm gonna sneak into the nation."

Now I'm on my way.
I don't know where I'm going
I'm on my way
I'm crossing the line but I don't know where
Goodbye Mexic-ooo, the home of Tijuana
'Cause you, me and Julio
Don't have a green card
See you, me and Julio don't have a green card

In a couple of days they come and
Take us away
And things were looking bleak
And when the radical priest
Tried to get us released
With asylum on the cover of Newsweek

But I'm on my way
I know just where I'm going
I'm on my way, I'm charged with a crime
But I don't really care
Hello Mexic-ooo, hello Tijuana
Because you, me and Julio
Don't have a green card
Because you, me and Julio
Don't have a green card
Because you, me and Julio
Don't have a green card
