I heard Ben Laden arrived in Toronto last night,
Claimed refugee status and all his Charter Rights,
He had three or four wives but it was hard to tell,
Immigration put them all up in a five star hotel.
He may be giving interviews later today,
But maybe not, in case he has to leave right away,
The Mounties may want to talk to him about over there,
He may just leave his wives here and let them go on welfare.
He says he likes the Trudeau/Chretien Charter a lot,
Written for "Everyone" in the world in case you forgot,
He’s due to give a lecture at the United Nations,
About Saddam oil-for-food scandal allegations.
He’s anxious about problems at the US border,
Wouldn’t want to be involved in any disorder,
But the UN guys will welcome him with open arms,
They recognize weird and wonderful oddballs and their charms.
And just because his boys shoot our Afghanistan fighters,
Is no need for a politician to be a backbiter,
The Trudeau/Chretien Charter was written for them all,
The appointed Supreme Court direct us as we crawl.
