Moxy Fruvous Canada We Love You
This morning, all full of fear and trembling Constituents were assembling With quotes from Mr. Angus Ried in hand Joe Clark struck up the band for a televised love-in link-up Wherein average folks could think up ways to save our troubled land. Then later, three trucks with big antennas Folks dressed like Frank McKenna's And cub reporters showed up on my lawn Flashbulbs shook the dawn and a teleprompter told me To speak the words out boldly for a CanSave telethone. I think I love you, can they hear that out in Moosejaw Here's a simple guy from Oshawa With a heaping homespun hunk of national pride I think I love you, get some makeup on the neighbours... It's a humble, folksy plea...pick it up on camera three... They gave me coffee and made me sit with others Whom, if they'd had their druthers would rather be home watching NFL But I guess it's just as well that we find a common zeitgeist Before Preston pulls a seat-heist in a parliament from hell. The CanSave satellite send word from downtown Gander Where folks refused to pander to ultimatums sent by Neighbour Kim We were about to pack it in when our Brian started prayin' Let's all act like Sir John A. - in other words, let's hit the gin. Then came Alberta with a message from the Saddledome Said Canada's their true home There's just some slight instructions for us all They'd like to build a massive wall, top it with a bubble, pronto So they could call Toronto the all-new East Edmonton Mall. We'll sing we love you, you're a jumbo hero sandwich Top it off with Peter Mansbridge Two huskies and a bucket of poutine Canada we love you so much it doesn't matter You're a frigid, spineless pawn for Wall Street and the Pentagon... But, geez, we love you!
