Saddam is coming to Canada soon
My name is Saddam Hussein and I live here in Iraq,
Iíve been sneaking around since the American attack,
I think Iíll come to Canada and make a refugee claim,
ĎCause no one has ever been turned down and there is no shame.
My friend Osama Bin Laden has already settled there,
Heís on welfare and he told me to come on and not care,
ĎCause everyone gets amnesty, no matter what the crime,
Thereís that matter of conflict of interest I had at one time.
And when I get to Canada Iíll take a good look around
Maybe they need some leadership - someone profound and renowned,
Or with the proper friends, an appointment to the Supreme Court,
They donít ask embarrassing questions to any of this sort.
You probably think I made this up and itís all just a lie,
I donít want to stay in Iraq moving around till I die,
Why should I, when I can catch the next Air Canada flight?
And then all I do is claim my Canadian Charter of Rights.
