AMIGOS! we will be donating all proceeds from this number to the ACLU for obvious reasons...we love America and tacos.
Thank you for listening.

lyrics

I ain't afraid of getting my hands dirty.
but i haven't worked since last june.
because of free trade, i'm getting mighty pobre
that factory ain't comin back too soon

he said that they would build a wall
but there still ain't nuthin there at all
El Presidente's never gunna pay.
they've paved the way for all them bad hombres.

now there's a taco truck on every corner
ever since we lost the border
forget about all that law and order
now there's a taco truck on every corner

they tell me it's bueno and that i shouldn't worry
but they keep coming up thru the Gila.
my American sueno is getting rather blurry
probably from all this cheap tequila.

why do they get what i don't got?
they got a pollo in every pot.
para aca to the end of the whole race.
man, that really fries my frijoles.

CHORUS

pero, he tenido un cambio de corazon.
i have had a little bit of luck.
for tacos have taught me that we can't live alone.
ever since i've started working at this truck.

put what you want inside your shell
let others do the same as well.
mi casa, tu casa while i make 'em,
and futhermore, as-salaam-alaikim

now there's a taco truck on every corner
ever since we lost the border.
yes ma'am, i'm glad to take your order
at my taco truck on the corner
at my taco truck on the corner
camion de tacos en cada esquina
