 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

Please have a seat. I'm sorry I'm late 
I know how long you've had to wait 
I did not forget your documents 
No time to waste, why not begin? 
Here's how it works, I've got these faces 
You give them names and I won't deport you 
Make sure you face my tape recorder 

Make no mistake, this fountain pen 
Could put you on a plane by ten 
And by the way, your next of kin 
I know which house she's hiding in 
So now that you know whose skin you're saving 
In this photograph, who's this one waving? 
I think you know, so speak up, amigo 

It says here that by trade you were a fisherman 
Well I'll bet you Indians can really reel them in 
And if you get the chance 
You should try to get up to Lake Michigan 
Well maybe, but then again

Where were we then? Is he your friend? 
Well I recommend that you look again 
Where does he stay? What is his name? 
There is no shame. He'd do the same 
So what do you say? I don't have all day 
It's up to you. Which will it be 
Good citizen or poor campesino? 

My dad used to rent us this place in Ontario 
He showed us how to cast the line and tie the flies 
He used to say that God rewards us for letting the small ones go 
Well maybe, but I don't know 
Anyway, it's easy to bite. 
You just take the bait 
You can't fight the hook 
Hurts less if you don't try to dive 

Senor, as you know I was a fisherman 
And how full the nets came in 
We hauled them up by hand 
But when we fled, I left them just out past the coral reefs 
They're waiting there for me 
Running deep
