The Lyrics

With all the disgruntled Americans threatening to cross their borders, I wonder if this is how Canadians see our reaction...
Times have changed
The right wing's getting worse
They mock the Constitution
and they call the left a curse

It's a shame, this government
should lead society--
But who'll take all the immigrants if we flee?

Oh, strain Canada
Strain Canada
Though we're greedy in their eyes,
known for politicians' lies
Strain Canada
Strain Canada
Mass exodus seems like assault,
Electorate's fault

Don't blame us
Bush we can't stand
We tried to vote him out
But now we're off, we'll flee the land

And that guy Kerry
Purple Hearts he won himself
Whoever we get, well, the US has [bleep]ed itself!

We'll strain Canada
Strain Canada
It seems that exile isn't wrong
Since "W" came along
Strain Canada
Strain Canada
They're closest to our old country anyway

Our states should have voted Nader or Badnarik, that is true
Instead, the Bill of Rights is turning into barbecue
Should we try impeachment
to get rid of the liar?
Or should we risk our northern neighbors' ire?

[Bleep] this election hullabaloo,
'cause as patriots we're through

Strain Canada
Foul up Canada
The rut we can't stop,
The trash we can't smash
George Herbert's son
He can't be undone
We're escaping from all the fuss
Until Canada starts hating usssss!

Well, as noted in several places, it'll take anybody who wants to leave about a year to do so. Unless, of course, you marry a Canadian.

Lovelovelove the original and this was a fine subversion. A few minor pacing flaws that my anally-retentive South Park loyalty had to mark down.

Well, I was working from a lyric sheet only and had no access to a sound file--my fault, but glad you liked it!
