Through word of mouth let it be known
The man who spends his life on a mission, he's legendary
Travelling from coast to coast
He's the contemporary Johnny Appleseed
He's making sure his garden grows
He'll plant a seed in every town he goes
Fertilizing the country side
Couldn't stop him with insecticide
Makin' sure that the garden grows,
He'll water the yeard with a garden hose
And you know he'll be plantin' a seed
Groomin' the backyard, or whackin' a weed
When diggin' holes, he'll be wearing a glove
He go into the shed, get out a shovel, and he shove
He'll plant the seed, makin' sure it's sown
He go into the shed, and he start hoein' with the hoe,
Makin' sure that the garden grow,
He'll water the yard with the garden hose
Groomin' the backyard, or whackin' a weed
The contemporary Johnny Appleseed

    This is the story of a humble mexican man, one who works hard and does the job right. His work ethics are often looked past and is instead the center of redicule for his ethnicity. He is revered as a societal hero in this song. This analysis can be seen through the lyrics and interjections between verses.
