The Lyrics


Are our borders porous?

There is no lid on the border line,
How do we rid car-tels and their kind?
They get pissy, locos much maligned,
Laws get twisty, raunchos stink like swine.

Get wet down as they ford the Rio Grande,
They get 'round since border's zero manned.
Get assaulted these nuts out of hand,
'Bama faulted now they own our land.

Outlaws think we've opened up the port,
Bylaws have opined they stay says court.
Loco's come a massin' cannot thwart,
We need some bomb blastin; stop 'em short.

They go at sunset, 'Course they've come to steal,
They pose a gun threat, 'Course they've come to kill.
Chasin' locos all night through the fields.
'Case those locos start fight, make them yield.

Like Crisco™ slid through the border line,
Hit the skids, and turn you one eye blind,
Just cannot rid, got us in a bind,
And once they're hid, no how can you find.

Let's put a lid on that border line,
These locos split, La Migra [1] seeks and finds,
Send back they're rid, back next round up time.
Once off the grid, up the stats on crime.

There is no lid on the border line,
There is no lid on the border line,
There is no lid on the border line.

[1] La Migra: TEX-MEX term for immigration or the INS.

Clever juxtaposition of the OS's storyline with current events, and great use of "Crisco"!

SirGuy, I can imagine ~WAR ~ playing this here in the SF Bay Area . . . using these lines, perhaps ?!?!? . . . . yeah, right !

JD - Hey buddy, long time no hear from. How ya doin? Crossing the border undetected is what is kanown as the "Cisco Switch". Yeah, I knew before I wrote this that Crisco™ was somehow going to get into the lyrics. Thanks for stoppin' by and leaving me the good words.

Lady of the wee Crisco™ icing cakes - I can't imagine them doing it here in S.A. even along the River Walk where all the tourists hang. Now get into the cowboy country 'round these parts and they'd have them a totally non hostile audience. You have made my day again by gracing my page with your words. Thanks much!

Dug the 'Crisco' line in your song! This satire sure "Wades In The Water" to the "South of the Border!" Great work and 555 Visa points for this one!

Definitely need better border protection, on all sides..good job

I'll have to agree with Crisco remark- slick phrasing. I know very little of what the problems are along the border with thugs and not-thugs crossing the line other than what I see or read. From what I glean, the points of view are pretty diverse from card anyone who looks Hispanic, to leave 'em alone because the rest of us don't want the jobs they're taking anyhow. We all know that the issues are much more complex than that.
Good read, and good job.

Wonderful job, but "Cisco is actually a "sanctuary city"! ;D

I'm not too up on the situation down there, but you seem to have a pretty astute commentary here. Nicely written!

Mark - I think our comments crossed. I'm not ignoring you, I just saw this. And yes I do La Migra just fine, thanks.

Christi - I knew when the thought first entered my mind to write this that the word Crisco™ would be in the parody. Thanks for reading and commenting.

Farce - I'm too close to that southern border. That is part of the reason that I have three Border Collies. They'll let anyone in but once in they won't let them do anything. Obama should station a few hundred packs of Border Collies along the southern frontier. Thanks.

OMR - only the San Fran one. This stuff all started with Poncho and Cisco. They were the first undocumented aliens on this side of the border. They were the first ones to come back in after Sam Houston caught Santa Anna's army with their pants down in East Texas near the city of Bastrop. Those that survived limped back to Mehico.

Of course we have the Alamo here in town. Ozzie Osbourne had the gall to take a whiz on it. He don't have a lot of friends in Texas. A little known fact is that Santa Anna actually had about 10,000 troups under his command but he only brought about 4,000 to the Alamo. He would have brought them all but he only had six pick up trucks. =;-)

Bil. - The reason I have a handle on it is because all this stuff happens in my back yard. Again, I refer to my Border Collies. Thanks for visiting and chatting.

When I saw the title, I thought this was going to be about a dearth of pot, but there's plenty of that coming over the border. This parody is rock solid--no pores.

JAB - Yeah, I knew someone would think that the word "lid" would be used for something else, 'cept they don't move it in lids, they use tractor trailors and big stuff like that.
