For You Unilingual Bunch
We need seven provinces to change the constitution,
Plus we need half the population in this execution,
Plus Ottawa has to get in on the deal that afternoon,
So no changes coming to this status quo real soon.
Weíre stuck between this status quo and a real hard place,
They say this is not dictatorship and there is no disgrace,
But he appoints senators and high-court lady judges,
And no questions about feminism nor shady grudges.
Individual Indians on reserves canít own their land,
And canít sell their property and told to understand,
But the rest of us donít have property rights either,
Nor the nerdy nerds who wrote the Charter neither.
Itís hard to believe that this was not all well planned,
Like little communists doing everything on command,
No set election dates, no referendums or recall,
Judicial dictatorship from unquestioned appointees on call.
And you unilingual eunuch better show some respect,
Because multicultural bilingualism is perfect,
Because these adscam socialists might be here to stay,
Better bow towards Ottawa and say "zev ou play."
