The Canadian Crisis Song lyrics

Often on the weekend i'll jump in my car
I won't fill up the tank although i'm going far
And if somebody asks me if i'm going to a bar
I'll say i'm shopping 'cross the border in the usa
I don't go down there to buy my groceries
I respect our farmers and our factories
I don't believe that "local" means it's poor in quality
It's just our goddamn prices are too high

(if he stays away for just two days)
I'll get one hundred dollars duty-free
If it adds to more i won't claim it for
(he won't declare the products if they're in his trunk)

Although it is canada that i call home
I don't cheer for the yankees when i'm in the dome
I didn't swell with pride during the desert storm
It's just that i don't want to pay the tax
(it's just that he's too cheap to pay the tax)

(yes, it's just like this, he's a loyalist)
I'll only shop at malls that fly our flag
(and he'll tell bob rae that he just won't pay)
Unless i need my unemployment benefits
(get a job, get a job, get a job)

Now everyone is doing the same thing as me
They're doing what they can to beat the gst
They're lining up for miles at the duty-free
So i bought a jc penny's store in buffalo
(so everybody come on down to buffalo)

(cause if you stay away for just two days)
You'll get one hundred dollars duty-free
Though it's not at par it'll still go far
And it ends up in the pockets of a country man
(it ends up in the pockets of a country man)

Oh, canada.
