    You know, and it gets into this whole issue of border security
    You know, who's gonna say that the borders are secure?
    We've got the House and the Senate debating this issue
    And it's, it's really astonishing that in a country founded by immigrants
    "Immigrant" has somehow become a bad word
    So the debate rages on and we continue

    And just like that it's over, we tend to our wounded, we count our dead
    Black and white soldiers wonder alike if this really means freedom

    I got one job, two job, three when I need them
    I got five roommates in this one studio, but I never really see them
    And we all came America trying to get a lap dance from Lady Freedom
    But now Lady Liberty is acting like Hilary Banks with a pre-nup
    Man, I was brave, sailing on graves
    Don't think I didn't notice those tombstones disguised as waves
    I'm no dummy, here is something funny, you can be an immigrant without risking your lives
    Or crossing these borders with thrifty supplies
    All you got to do is see the world with new eyes

    Immigrants, we get the job done

    Look how far I come
    Look how far I come
    Look how far I come
    We get the job done

    Look how far I come
    Look how far I come
    Look how far I come
    Immigrants, we get the job done

    It's a hard line when you're an import
    Baby boy, it's hard times
    When you ain't sent for
    Racists feed the belly of the beast
    With they pitchforks, rich chores
    Done by the people that get ignored

    Ya se armó
    Ya se despertaron
    It's a whole awakening
    La alarma ya sonó hace rato
    Los que quieren buscan
    Pero nos apodan como vagos
    We are the same ones
    Hustling on every level
    Ten los datos
    Walk a mile in our shoes
    Abróchense los zapatos

    I been scoping ya dudes, ya'll ain't been working like I do
    I'll outwork you, it hurts you
    You claim I'm stealing jobs though
    Peter Piper claimed he picked them, he just underpaid Pablo
    But there ain't a paper trail when you living in the shadows
    We're America's ghost writers, the credit's only borrowed
    It's a matter of time before the checks all come
    But

    Immigrants, we get the job done

    Look how far I come
    Look how far I come
    Look how far I come
    We get the job done

    Look how far I come
    Look how far I come
    Look how far I come
    Immigrants, we get the job
    Not yet

    The credit is only borrowed
    It's America's ghost writers, the credit's only borrowed
    It's America's ghost writers
    America's ghost writers
    America's ghost writers, the credit's only borrow-borrowed
    It's America's ghost writers, a credit is only borrowed
    It's America's ghost writers, a credit is only borrowed
    It's America's ghost writers, a credit is only borrowed
    It's

    Immigrants, we get the job done

    Ay yo aye, immigrants we don't like that
    Na they don't play British empire strikes back
    They beating us like 808's and high hats
    At our own game of invasion, but this ain't Iraq
    Who these fugees what did they do for me
    But contribute new dreams
    Taxes and tools, swagger and food to eat
    Cool, they flee war zones, but the problem ain't ours
    Even if our bombs landed on them like the Mayflower
    Buckingham Palace or Capitol Hill
    Blood of my ancestors had that all built
    It's the ink you print on your dollar bill, oil you spill
    Thin red lines on the flag you hoist when you kill
    But still we just say "look how far I come"
    Hindustan, Pakistan, to London
    To a galaxy far from their ignorance
    'Cause

    Immigrants, we get the job done

    Por tierra o por agua
    Identidad falsa
    Brincamos muros o flotamos en balsas
    La peleamos como Sandino en Nicaragua
    Somos como las plantas que crecen sin agua
    Sin pasaporte americano
    Porque la mitad de gringolandia es terreno mexicano
    Hay que ser bien hijo de puta
    Nosotros les sembramos el árbol y ellos se comen la frutas
    Somos los que cruzaron
    Aquí vinimos a buscar el oro que nos robaron
    Tenemos mas trucos que la policía secreta
    Metimos la casa completa en una maleta
    Con un pico, una pala
    Y un rastrillo
    Te construimos un castillo
    Como es que dice el coro cabrón?

    Immigrants, we get the job done

    Look how far I come
    Look how far I come
    Look how far I come
    We get the job done

    Look how far I come
    Look how far I come
    Look how far I come
    Immigrants, we get the job done

    Look how far I come
    Look how far I come
    Look how far I come
    Immigrants, we get the job done
