The Lyrics

Well, with about 16,000 signatures and counting, the petition from to sell Montana to Canada is still going. Initially taken as a joke, I had heard that Montana will have a vote (or referendum) on this April 1st (lol). Even after the 15-5 result last time. There were two alternative, and obvious, choices that would have worked on this. Frank Zappa's Montana song has an odd spoken word, jazz vibe that I can't work around. Also, it is too long and would make it look too much like a tourism track. Montana's state song itself: short, sweet, and simple, but transposing the song into a new Canadian province did not flow right. I would allow for someone else to pull off that feat, and I will retract this submission. This is just me being a temper-mental artist. I little bitter about the Oscar results. Enjoy this song.
(Verse 1)
So if you’re useless
There’s a new land, waiting for you
North of the border
There are some perks you never knew
And if you secede
You’ll save a whole year, no deficit
North of the border
There are some perks, new resident
Uhhh, ahhh, ahhh
U.S.A can’t pay down its debt, MT*

(Verse 2)
You want treasure state
We think that it’s great
But then, buy us out

Trillion, it will cost
Treason, phrase gets tossed
So then, buy us out

You want treasure state
We think that it’s great
But then, buy us out

Parks like that Yellow-stone
Hey Trudeau, just buy us out

U.S.A can’t pay down its debt (MT)
U.S.A can’t pay down its debt
U.S.A can’t pay down its debt (MT)
U.S.A can’t pay down its debt, MT

(Verse 3)
You want treasure state
We think that it’s great
But then, buy us out

This state is mostly white
Basins left and right
What stops you, to buy us out

We’ll grow that bitterroot+
State flag, field of blue
Come on, buy us out

* MT = Montana State Abbreviation. + Bitterroot is Montana's state flower. Sited from Wikipedia.

Enjoyed it, especially for being a political parody that isn't involving youknowwho again. In particular, thanks for the informative intro as well.
