Unilingual scream in bilingual dream
They rarely rearrange the equalization ransom,
That has kept them in office and looking quite handsome,
Mere mindless minions of minority government need,
More members to manipulate the status quo they feed.
For the soon-to-be election thatís coming their way,
Red Book Adscam politicians that tend to betray but stay,
As they tax and spend and travel the greater globe,
Deny everything at the Gomery Inquiry probe.
And their followers remind me of born-again types,
Who seem to hate the Americans and the stars and stripes,
In love with a status quo system that cannot be changed,
The Charter or equalization never rearranged.
Canadians are told daily what to think and believe,
This left-wing propaganda that tends to lie and deceive,
Appointed judges and senators and cabinet guys,
That canít be asked questions so never a surprise.
Trained to be docile and never never speak out loud,
Canadians ask permission to see if theyíre allowed,
Complete political apathy and no bilingual scream,
Unilingual flock caught in adscam dictatorship dream.
