Away in a Ford Ranger

Away in a Ranger,
No home and no bed
The little boy Jesus
lays down his sweet head

The lights in the city
look down where he lay
The little boy Jesus
under the freeway

The sirens have brought
the poor baby awake
to find law enforcement
has make a mistake

Homeland Security
came by here today
His mama they dragged off
for corporate pay

Ms Suarez was pleading
her baby to take
But little boy Jesus
was left in their wake

We let little Jesus
come to our country
to pick all our lettuce
and do our laundry

If he's lucky, Jesus,
we might let him stay
to work in the shadows
for little or no pay

Why can't all the children
be given good care
with love and compassion
and treated more fair
