Story behind the song
I was working a big job with situations like this. For Pedro, Romel, Juan, and Pablo The legals I knew who felt this way. Hope this is not to offensive to those who like our other music, Pulled out my old D18 Martin grandma Terry and Dad bought me in 1971 to try to re-create a time when I was a Folksinger Produced by Skiffy Flippo (like all our music)
Me and Pedro we worked for the man Just making a living how ever we can work hard with our skills to make a fair wage and leave all we got at the end of the day Pedro he worked with a green card and he'd leave the country when it expired he became a citizen just three weeks today But illegals have taken his job away Chorus He works at our trade and he buys all his tools learned to speak english and plays by the rules Layoff time comes and his work looks the best But illegals are working for 8 dollars less Layoff time comes and his work looks the best But illegals are working for 8 dollars less Now listen George Bush our families need food shelter, clothes, and transportation just like you He's worked in your country and played by your rules Now you give the illegals Pedro's job too chorus Now listen George Bush I know your in with the man You'll all cheat poor people whenever you can But work and rules is something we need The illegals don't need no amnesty chorus Illegals have taken our jobs away Proclamation King George has passed out today As quick as your legal they'll lay you off And lead an illegal to your feed trough chorus
