lyrics

Walking through the suburbs, El Mexicano,
Can’t afford the rent and cant afford a taco,
Sombrero and debt all he has left,
8 kids, 2 wives, no home
Dirty mustache, 3 dogs with no bone
Wished he hadn’t siesta’d while mowing the lawn

And now he’s praying, praying…
He’s praying to the lord,
Praying to Jesus
Praying to an invisible man to bring him salvation
He’s praying for hope
He’s praying for burito
He’s praying,praying to the lord


Chinese worker, crying in rice paper
Kicked from his job as poor slave labour
Seven year olds are apparently ten percent cheaper,
Family to support, Kung fu skills wont protect him
Only one way, sell his body, limb by limb
Kneeling at the temple, kneeling to his fate

But he’s praying, praying…
He’s praying to the Buddha,
Praying to the deity
Praying that a fat, bald man will cut him a break
He’s Praying for a way out
from the sex industry
He’s praying, praying. Praying to the lord…

-Solo-

Softer…

Little jew man, cap on his head,
Lost his only way to earn his daily bread
Not enough accountancy positions to hold them all
Big nose leading the way to go,
Sitting at the synagogue, head bent low,
And as the chants begin he starts to sing

and praays, praaays, praaaays yeahh
He’s praying to Satan,
Praying to Beelzebub
Praying to the dark lord to deliver damnation
He’s praying for gold,
Praying for circumcision
He's prayin, praayin oooh
Prayin to the lord...
