The Lyrics

Winding down the Prime Ministerial Parody Project. This closes out the rough stretch of the 1890s, when there were six different guys in a span of five years: Macdonald, Abbott, Thompson, Bowell, Tupper and Laurier, and only the first and the last amounted to much.
Now when the government, it ain't run right
you need Mackenzie Bowell to set things right.

And when the guys out west won't give you play
get Mackenzie Bowell, put them away.

Now, when economy is broke in two
you need Mackenzie Bowell to see you through.

And when you cannot reach your national goal
you better not be blaming Mackenzie Bowell.

Of course, we're broke, and we got Manitoba Schools Question.
Mackenzie Bowell, he gives us indigestion!

Now after two years gone, we all feel like cryin'.
He may be your choice, but he sure ain't mine.
And he's quit, and Tupper, he wasn't gold.
But he's still a little better than Mackenzie Bowell!

Mackenzie Bowell, merde, Mackenzie Bowell!
Mackenzie Bowell, merde, Mackenzie Bowell!
Mackenzie Bowell, merde, Mackenzie Bowell!
Mackenzie Bowell, merde, Mackenzie Bowell!
(repeat 'til fade)
