You come into this country
You can't get real jobs
Boats and boats and boats of you
Go home you fuckin' slobs
Selling hot dogs on the corner
Selling papers in the street
Pushing, pulling, digging, sweating
Where you come from must be beat

You always make us wait
You're the ones we hate
You can't communicate
Speak English Or Die

You don't know what I want
You don't know what I need
Why must I repeat myself
Can't you fuckin' read?
Nice fuckin' accents
Why can't you speak like me
What's that dot on you head,
Do you use it to see??

    General CommentSOD was comprised of Scott Ian (Anthrax), Charlie Benante (Anthrax), Dan Lilker (Anthrax, Nuclear Assault), and Billy Milano (M.O.D. - Method of Destruction.

    While the lyrics are not overtly serious, they were released in 1984, a time when the growing foreign population in the US was resistant to learning the language of the country in which they resided.

    General Commentdon't really see how this song is true, funny or how you guys think it is. someone's being a little close-minded. you probably think it's me.

    if you listen to any M.O.D., there's obvious racial connotation in their lyrics too. not saying that any of them were racist, but some people (one of my South American friends) do take offense to their lyrics but listen to their music.

    i understand it's all in good humor to them, but i'm just saying.

    That said, even if the lyrics to this song and a few others suck, S.O.D. had some of the best riffs of any 80's crossover band.
