Singin’ Those Anchor Baby Blues

 Trigger warning:  If you are an illegal alien sleazebag,
this poem might be offensive to you.

Waaah!  I wanna be an anchor baby—
A little greaser with hair slick and wavy!

Waaah!  I wanna be an anchor baby!
Gimme a passport and I don’t mean maybe!

Waaah!  I wanna be an anchor baby!
I’m gonna get in line for U.S. gravy!

Waaah!  I wanna be an anchor baby—
So I can grow up and be in your Navy!

Waaah!  I wanna be an anchor baby!
A little hero like your Crockett (Davy)!

Waaah!  I wanna be an anchor baby—
And vote for Democrats just like a slavey!

Waaah!  I wanna be an anchor baby—
So mom and dad can face La Migra bravely!
