I love being an American
But the politics make me sick
Tell you how to live your life
I can’t get over it
Place all these rules on you
Can’t drink til’ 21
Harass you about all your ways
Spoiling all of your fun

Oh man I’d love to be up there
And bask out in the snow
If you saw the girls up there
I bet you’d wanna go
Even some of them speak French
So sexy, ooh la la
It would make you fall in love
They’re the best I ever saw

I want to get away
I got to find someway
They can’t make me stay
I wanna be Canadian
Tell us all these BS lies
We can never compromise
Our government, we do despise
I wanna be Canadian

You can drink as a teen
Go and take some shots
No worries about an MIP
No harassment from the cops

The beer may cost more money
But man I would pay more
It will make really mess you up
You’ll end up on the floor
They even try and save the trees
While we chop all them down
Let’s get rid of all our air
And make a bigger town
They don’t try and pollute the earth
They rarely use a car
The solution to all their problems
Spend all your time in a bar

I want to get away
I got to find someway
They can’t make me stay
I wanna be Canadian
Tell us all these BS lies
We can never compromise
Our government, we do despise
I wanna be Canadian
