Born In East L.A. by Cheech And Chong

Took a walk to the corner store
Just to buy a loaf of bread and a box of s`mores
Up pulled a guy in a yellow van
Shiny gold badge flashing in his hand
He said, alright all you mojados down here
I want you all to hit the floor
I got one thing to ask you and nothing more
So answer in English, if you can
Where were ya born, man
Huh? Where was I born?
That`s right, I said
Where were ya born?
Hey, are you one of those dudes who do horoscopes, man
Hey, I`m a Cancer with a bad moon rising
Look here el fago, watch my lips
Where were ya born?
Man, I was BORN IN EAST L.A.
Oh yeah, you were BORN IN EAST L.A.
Let`s see your green card
Huh? Green card?
I`m from East LA
Alright, then who`s President of the United States
Oh, that`s easy, man
That guy that used to be on Death Valley Days, John Wayne
Alright, let`s go, come on
Next thing I know, I`m in a foreign land
People talkin so fast, I couldn`t understand
There was nobody there to lend a helping hand
I was cold, it was dark where is a burger stand
I want to go back to East LA
I wish I was back in East LA
I don`t belong here in downtown T.J.
Cause I was born in East LA, ole
I crawled under barbed wire, swam across a stream
Rode in six different trucks packed like a sardine
Walked all day in the burning sun
Now I know what it`s like to be born to run
Up ahead was the promised land
Shining like a star just beyond my hand
All I could see was a golden door
I looked up, a sign said five billion sold
And I was back in East LA
Yes, I was back in East LA
You know I`m never gonna stray
Cause I was born in East LA, oh LA
(adlibs with I'm a low rider rocker in East LA, oh LA)
