It's Friday! Let's Dance!!!


All this talk of immigration reform, and Arizona, and border problems, and "Sanctuary Cities", has me thanking God it's a Friday. I feel the need for a Welsh singer, singing a song about Spanish Harlem, on Japanese TV. If you have a good "immigrant song"...legal or otherwise...leave a link in comments because IT's FRIDAY so LET's DANCE!!!

I have to admit. When I saw your post I immediately thought of Led Zepplin, The Immigrant Song

Lyrics:

Ah, ah,
We come from the land of the ice and snow,
From the midnight sun where the hot springs blow.
The hammer of the gods will drive our ships to new lands,
To fight the horde, singing and crying: Valhalla, I am coming!

On we sweep with threshing oar, Our only goal will be the western shore.

Ah, ah,
We come from the land of the ice and snow,
From the midnight sun where the hot springs blow.
How soft your fields so green, can whisper tales of gore,
Of how we calmed the tides of war. We are your overlords.

On we sweep with threshing oar, Our only goal will be the western shore.

So now you'd better stop and rebuild all your ruins,
For peace and trust can win the day despite of all your losing.

Happy Friday oh Great and Glorious Reader!

Tom Jones is probably the only 'popular song' artist that I have a lot of respect for. Plus he saved a bunch of people in Mars Attacks.

This particular clip dubbed in Espanol of course Senor !

But, I'll tell ya, nothing says Immigrant more than This Tune

BTW, I was only kidding, I know some great illegal aliens.

This sort of sounds like an immigrant song:
