lyrics

Mr. Harper, we think that you should know:

You’d think that we would learn from the mistakes of our siblings,
“In God they trust” but make a living out of killing.
Everyone thinks that we’re still huddling in igloos,
Peace-lovers, ‘till young Harper brings in his views:
Money, greed, power, and fame,
But we all know he’s just a puppet for the big corporations’ gain,
So who’s to blame? It’s a difficult question,
Find out for yourself and flip to section B-11, ha-ha!
Take a long period of introspection, turn your thoughts in a new direction,
Mr. Prime Minister, it’s time for your inspection; a real democratic election.

Mr. Harper, we think that you should know,
Mr. Harper, we think that you should go,
Somewhere far away from here,
And please don’t you come home,
Mr. Harper, we think that you should go (now, now, now)

How did we end up with another George Dubya?
But with more brains and less games and hidden plans to cut ya?
Changing what he wants to make the “next great nation,”
Bill C-38 to squash the next generation.
“Why take all the trouble to make one law at a time
When we can change them all at once and sign on the dotted line?”
Now Enbridge arrives…
An oil spill a week? Nah, we’ll be fine.
Like playing Operation when you’re five years old,
Except the edges of the cut are the Great Bear Rainforest.
So don’t screw up, there’s no “Err!” like in the game,
It’s real blood and guts, mixed with oil, it’s no dud.
And the maze is the same but the wounds are waterways,
It’s much more difficult, and the place is famed,
For the sacred spirit bear, mysterious and rare,
Roaming in the forest, blissfully unaware.
But the tar sands are gold mines and the same goes for pipelines,
They all become dollar signs with the help of the mastermind.
“Who cares who dies? We’ll all get rich, and then retire.”

We know how this story ends, we’ve seen it all before,
So go, go, go, go.
Yes we know how this story ends, we don’t want another war,
So go, go, go.
Yes we know how this story ends, we know how this story ends,
So go, go, go,
And don’t come home.

Mr. Harper, we think that you should know,
Mr. Harper, we think that you should go.
