Those whom the gods destroy... first they make crazy


James Bredin

Your nomination papers wont get signed,
Then youíll be in one hell of a bind,
Behave or Iíll call a snap election,
Think about money and your reelection.

An election call will forestall all of you,
Therefore we stick together just like glue,
You just have to believe that Iím the boss,
Canada needs me so donít double-cross.

Itís all very simple - nothing complex,
Iíll call an election and send the checks,
We donít have free votes or execution,
Weíre immune from criminal prosecution.

Iíve got friends in extremely high places,
I appoint them to decide all these cases,
Itís obvious why we should all agree,
I appoint the head of the RCMP.

You better just nod and make no nudges,
I also appoint all Supreme Court judges,
And no one would ever dare to ask why,
ĎCause I also appoint the ethics guy.
