The Canadian Loonie
Those bankers who know it all have voiced their concern,
‘cause the loonie is headed downward never to return.
Canadian companies are on the block by the score,
For those with real dollars and lots of esprit de corps.
Liberals have admitted that there’s nothing they can do,
As the loonie lunges downward, now at sixty-two.
They also refuse to pay down the national debt.
Six hundred billion dollars is a true and terrible threat.
But they do have their social programs in places far away,
Their Third World comrades are all waiting for their pay.
And CIDA pays the money to keep them all afloat,
Why think about the loonie when the Liberals have the vote.
And Canadians are not told they’re in it up to here,
Liberal propaganda says everything is clear,
As the country is being swallowed up in this global affair,
Soon enough we’ll come under the economic glare.
‘Cause socialist in Ottawa have international dedication,
And only look for refugees and Third World admiration.
Their tax and spend policies are their main concern.
Forget about the loonie but don’t forget your tax return.
