My friends they wash the windows and they shine in the sun
They tell me wake up early in the morning sometime
See what a beautiful job we done
I say let's put on some tunes sing along do little all day
Go sown to the riverside take off our shoes wash these sins away
The river said la la la
Shame on you
I go down to Chicano city park because it makes me feel so fine
When the weeds go down you can see up close in the dead of the winter time
But when the summer comes everything's in bloom and you wouldn't know it's there
The white folks like to pretend it's not but their music's in the air
You can hear them singing la la la
Shame on you
You can feel them dancing la la la
Shame on you
My friend Tanner she says you know me and Jesus we're of the same heart
The only thing that keeps us distant is that I keep fuckin' up
I said come on down to Chicano city park wash your blues away
The beautiful ladies walk on by
You know I never know what to say
They'll be singing ooh la la
Shame on you
Let's go road block trippin' in the
Middle of the night up in Gainesville town
There'll be blue lights flashing down the long dirt road
When they ask me to step out
They say we be looking for illegal immigrants can we check your car
I say you know it's funny I think we were on the same boat back in 1694
I said ooh la la
Shame on you

I want to rate this higher than the original 6 I gave it, and I might have gone to an 8 if the lyric that included 'Fuckin' up' wasn't altered to be 'f#$%in' up' still...I'll go to 7 on this unfortunately topical song still....Long Live RP!!

It must be those "la-la-la-la"s.
Illegal immigrants? This song is so 20th century. ... Er, wait a topical minute,  
Favorite line in this song:
