Lyrics & Music by York Taylor
Album: He Bombed My Daddy


Done in the Woodie Guthrie Protest style. A story of how the Bush policy of "if they have a job they can stay" makes for near slave labor for the Illegal and lost jobs for the legal immigrates and other workers in the trades.
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

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 eight 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.

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 eight dollars less
Layoff time comes and his work looks the best
But illegals are working for 8 dollars less.

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

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 eight dollars less.

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

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.
