All She Wanted Was A Greencard

Written By: Juan Botino

She was standing there
Across the square
Looking like she lost her best friend
A pretty brown eyed senorita
With hair down to her waist
She came over to me, introduced herself
Asked me if I could help
She said senor I’m alone,
Got no place to go
With not a penny to my name

So I took her home
Got to know her well
After a month she proposed
We got married in Tijuana
Honeymooned in Louisianna
Everything was just swell

I came home from work
One late afternoon
And she met me at the door
She said close your eyes
I have a surprise
You gringo that I adore

When I opened my eyes
I saw laying inside
People all over my floor
She said come on and meet
Part of my family
Manana there’ll be some more

This is my mother Conchita
This is my sister Rosita
My father Manuel, my brother Miguel,
My cousins Jaimica and Juanita
My abuelo Jose, abuela Inez
And my chiguagua named Fred
They are going to live
With usted and me
In the land of the free

I took her aside
And told her that I
Was going to go get a drink
And by the time I returned
I wanted those people gone
This was not a Holiday Inn

When I returned
Later that night
I went and opened the door
My big screen was gone
And tacked to the wall
Was a note that said it all

All she wanted was a green card
All she wanted was to stay
In the land of the free
Where there’s color t.v.
And the water for drinking is safe

All she wanted was a green card
Married me so she could stay
Now I’m scanning The Times
Hoping to find
A job with the Border Patrol!

All she wanted was a green card
All she wanted was to stay
In the land of the free
Where there’s color t.v.
And the water for drinking is safe

All she wanted was a green card
Married me so she could stay
Now I’m taking control
I’m going to work
For the USA Border Patrol!
