Razing Arizona

John McCain receives a history lesson.

Here at Lynnrockets’ Blast-Off, we do not feel the need to expound any more on the ill-conceived new Arizona state immigration law which encourages racial profiling and reduces all legal residents and citizens with “brown” skin to second class status as the result of having to carry their “papers” at all times. The comparisons to another governmental entity that did the same thing are obvious.

Consequently, we will simply comment by means of lyric. Please enjoy.

Please remember to click on the song link below to familiarize yourselves with the tune and to have more fun singing along with today’s topical song parody.

(sung to the Mark Lindsay song “Arizona”)

I sure do long for San Francisco
This Arizona day
They just pulled over ol’ Pedro and Cisco
Racism has its way
Police don’t believe in brotherhood or neighborhood
If your skin is brown, you’re prey
And Jan Brewer we all laugh at her
As she initiates the neo-Nazi ways

Arizona – take off your racist shades
Arizona – have another look at the world
My, my
Arizona – don’t follow John McCain
Arizona – hey, put down that Kool-Aid

Mmmm try as you might, you’ll never solve your problems by deporting a child
Coat them in red paint as you place them in shackled restraints
Arizona – you’ve made the evening news
Arizona – You’ll have pure white highways

Lock them both up, Pedro and Cisco
Make them sit there and wait
As the wheels of justice turn so slow
Just stare at them with hate
And you can tell them that brotherhood and neighborhood
Is the Arizonan way
But you and they know it’s an untrue fable
To justify locking them away

Arizona – now you resemble Hades
Arizona – you’ll soon be cut off from the world
My, my
Arizona – don’t follow John McCain
Arizona – wake up and use your brain

Hey, Arizona – discard your racist views
Arizona – you’ll soon be cut off from the world
My, my
Arizona – next will it be the Jews?
Arizona – wake up and use your brain

Come on, hey, Arizona – cast off your racist ways.

  1. You’ll have pure white highways


  2. Scathing but earned. Excellent commentary through song.

  3. Arizona Tea

    George H.W. Bush, who once referred to his grandchildren as “the little brown ones”, hasn’t commented publicly, but Jeb Bush, whose Mexican-born wife is presumably even “browner” than the children, is objecting to the new law.

    Sen. Boehner, on the other hand, has no qualms about setting foot in Arizona-with his orange hue, he’s more likely to be mistaken for an intergalactic alien than a “foreign-looking” one!
