The Lyrics

Toronto's garbage has been stopped on the way to the MIchigan Landfill, because of Mad Cow in Alberta. That's like getting overcharged for your bagel in San Diego, and slapping the first jew you see in Florida for it..
oh when the trucks roll down that road we call the 401
dumping garbage in the states, in Michigan, it must be done
stopped at the border, and you ask how?
they're concerned about the safety, and now mad cow

stopped at the border
(and they're not doing too well)
stopped at the border
(and it's starting to smell)
stopped at the border
(garbage sent by the ton)
stopped at the border
(now we're having no fun)
stopped at the border


at the dump you hear the happy chirps of the gulls each time
and they come back to eat all of the sludge and all of the slime
stopped at the border and you ask how
they're concerned about the safety, and now mad cow

stopped at the border
(and they're not doing too well)
stopped at the border
(and it's starting to smell)
stopped at the border
(garbage sent by the ton)
stopped at the border
(now we're having no fun)
stopped at the border

instrumental

ohhhh stopped at the border,
and I ask how
they're concerned about infection,
and now mad cow


ohhhh stopped at the border,
and I ask how
they're concerned about infection,
and now mad cow

Wait a minute! You have all that empty land up there nobody lives on, and you're shipping your garbage into _Michigan_?!?! Something 'stinks' ;-) Good parody though.

They have bagels in San Diego? I thought that big fat "O" was the number of championships won by the Padres and Chargers! (The '63 AFL Title doesn't count.) Empty space in the Prime Minister's head? Hello, Joe Clark was PM for nine months a generation ago, and Jean Chretien is the smartest head-of-government in North America. (You were thinking Vicente Fox, maybe? Maybe John Turner, another brief occupant of 24 Sussex. Bet you didn't know I knew the address!) On the other hand, I've been to Detroit. If Canadian garbage was dumped there, who would notice? It would probably improve the smell of the city! Come to think of it, a huge piece of Canadian garbage WAS dumped on Detroit: Curtis Joseph! (I'm really Winging it now.)
