Hey, USA! It’s time to change your ‘Dirty Diaper’ (video, lyrics)

POCHO amigo Eric Holland thinks something smells funny in the United Estates. (Eric is a new dad which may account for the diaper analogy.)

Mira los lyrics:

My grandpa was a Mexican born down in Durango
Immigrated to America
Now he’s called Chicano
He came North for his Family
During the racial riots of 53
After 53 years, He still wonders if he’s free

My daddy cut cotton East of San Diego
And he always had the mark of a man straight out of Mexico
He got shot in the barrio
By a policeman’s gun near the Shop and Go
He was reaching for his wallet
Not knowing what was to come?

“In 50 years will it be the same?”
Skin color decides your name?
KINDA like a Dirty Diaper
It’s time for a change

Mother since then, she hasn’t been the same
That’s the way the cards fall
When there ain’t no one to blame

She never does up her hair no more
Talks to the Lord and says “Por Favor”
I guess we all need something to believe

I can still hear my grandpa say
“Next year it will be OK?”
Like an anxious little kid I’m still waiting for that day

In 50 years will it be the same?
Skin color decides your name?
Kinda like a Dirty Diaper It’s time for a change
(2x)

My daddy cut cotton east of San Diego
And he always had the mark of a man straight out of Mexico
“In 50 years will it be the same ?”
Skin color decides your name?
Kinda like a Dirty Diaper it’s time for a change.
