Fascinate, fascinate, fascinated
With the underclass
She broke down, she broke down, she broke down
and decided to act

For every new baby
Investment, investment
for every whore, relief

No matter a drunkard,
a swineherd, a spaniard
we're all treated equally

Canada, Cana-daddy-doody-da
Let her keep a memento
She has not been able to sleep
Since the days of Trudeau
On music, on painting, distract us with drying
and don't let the audience die

Watch Alice get better, and Peggy get stronger
they'll still publish once in a while

    General CommentPierre Trudeau was the prime minister of Canada from 1968 - 1979. He was incredibly popular, even a sex symbol, and is often said to have redefined the country.

    General Commenti'm just guessing, but i think alice and peggy must be alice munro and margaret atwood, two of canada's bigger literary names.

    General CommentIt seems to me that this song is about the emphasis in political Canada--say, the things that are being neglected. For example: Canada's arts and music are only now BEGINNING to get recognition and the funding they deserve.

    Alice and Peggy are what you say, Milou66. Trudeau redefined the status of homosexuals in Canada with his statement that the government has no place in the bedrooms of Canadians.

    General CommentThe lyrics look pretty good, but it's "drawing" not "drying." This is just coming out of the booklet I got with Has A Good Home.
