Welcome to Canada,
it's the Maple Leaf State.
Canada, oh Canada it's great!
The people are nice and they speak French too.
If you don't like it, man, you sniff glue.
The Great White North, their kilts are plaid,
Hosers take off, it's not half bad.

I want to be where yaks can run free,
Where Royal Mounties can arrest me.

Let's go to Canada, let's leave today,
Canada, oh, Canada, I Sil Vous Plait.

They've got trees, and mooses, and sled dogs,
Lots of lumber, and lumberjacks, and logs!
We all think it's kind of a drag,
That you have to go there to get milk in a bag.
They say "eh?" instead of "what?" or "duh?"
That's the mighty power of Canada.

I want to be where lemmings run into the sea,
Where the marmosets can attack me.

Let's go to Canada, let's leave today,
Canada, oh, Canada, I Sil Vous Plait.

Please, oh, please, explain to me,
How this all has come to be,
We forgot to mention something here.
Did we say that William Shatner is a native citizen?
And Slurpees made from venison, That's deer.

Let's go to Canada, let's leave today,
Canada, oh, Canada, I Sil Vous Plait.

    General CommentI like the fact that this is a christian band and this song either intentionally makes no sense (making it hilarious) or the symbolism is so thick it doesn't make any sense. if the symbolism part is true, then they did it on purpose (which makes them hilarious) or thought it would mean something. oh well.

    General CommentMan, I love Five Iron Frenzy... one minute doing some serious praise song, the next some random crazy thing just to have fun (sometimes at the same time, too)... I mean... "Pants: The Rock Opera"... that's hard to beat. Their new album was a bit more serious and not much ska, but it's all good. Anyway, this is one of my all time favorite songs, I'm not quite sure why :D. Yeah.
