"Wake up America", is what Ray Stevens is trying to say.
Ray is known to be hilarious, yet incredibly opinionated, and we can't get enough! In this ballad about illegal immigration, "Come To The U.S.A." hilariously depicts the current ideals on immigration in the United States.
At the end of the video, a disclaimer reads, "This video and song are dedicated to the hard-working American citizens who were born in other countries and chose to "come to the U.S.A." the right way!"
A Ray Stevens original song, this piece of work hilariously talks about the United States' current situation concerning illegal immigration, and how we, as Americans, perceive this ongoing issue.
Check out why this video has almost 9 million views on YouTube, and why it has gone VIRAL!
Even though the topic is more of a serious one, Ray Stevens still finds a way to make the video and song very silly, and funny.
You won't be disappointed!
