Let#s Dollarize the Loonie
If the loonie goes up to a dollar let’s dollarize,
Europeans adapted the euro so they realize,
Small currencies are subject a speculation squeeze,
Since the $loonie sometimes slides like it has a dread disease.
The Florida snowbirds want it up while others want it down,
While speculators with the hedge funds are watching profound,
They push it up or drive it down while there’s money to be made,
Canadians are captured with $reason to be afraid.
‘Cause politicians all say, "The fundamentals are in place,"
Afraid to do the dollarize while lying in your face,
They go through to all the fancy functions flying here and there,
But they too use US dollars and keep $loonies as spare.
