Just stand in line -papers in hand
Don’t look around
understand 

What’s that you say 
You just want a job
We know your kind 
you kill and you rob 

Kill and you rob
corrupt the young mind
preachers of hate
prejudice blind

We came such a long way mother
we came such a long way here
I lost my father and my bother
they want to make us disappear
 
Those women of yours
they cover their face
the President says
you’re the wrong human race 
the wrong human race
the wrong human kind 
We’re shipping you out
Get in line

We came such a long way mother
we came such a long way here
I lost my father and my bother
they want to make us disappear

This country of ours
we’re taking it back
We’re making it great
taking it back   
Just stand in line - papers in hand
don’t look around
understand
