The Lyrics

Paul Martin began his tenure with his Liberal Party holding over 60 percent of the Canadian House of Commons. After last week's election, it now holds about 36 percent. Some Prime Minister he turned out to be. Memo to future Vice Presidents of the United States and Foreign Secretaries of Great Britain: Sometimes, the most qualified guy for the job isn't the right guy for the job.
I beg your pardon.
I never really liked you, Paul Martin.

It had to be sometime.
The Tories had to come back to sunshine.
But you sucked, and you blew, and it's all on you.
Just let go.

I beg your pardon.
I never really liked you, Paul Martin.

I stood with you again
like Jean Chretien.
But maple leaves, they ain't growin' on talk of scandal.
This job you could not handle.
Well, if sweet-talkin' you could make it come true
I would give you back that job now on a silver platter
but what would it matter?
Your time in office was such a fool's folly.
That's why our land is melancholy.
And now the Tories have good times while they can.

I beg your pardon.
I never really liked you, Paul Martin.
It had to be sometime.
The Tories had to come back to sunshine.

(instrumental break)

I beg your pardon.
I never really liked you, Paul Martin.

I could give you my vote
but it won't raise your boat.
So if that's what it takes to keep you
I'd just as soon let you go
because you ain't no Pierre Trudeau.
You better look before you leap.
Big spending ran cheap.
And this time they're wasn't someone there to pull you out
and you know what I'm talkin' about.
Your time in office was such a fool's folly.
That's why our land is melancholy.
And now the Tories have good times while they can.

I beg your pardon.
I never really liked you, Paul Martin.
It had to be sometime.
The Tories had to come back to sunshine.
I beg your pardon.
I never really liked you, Paul Martin.
It had to be sometime.
The Tories had to come back to sunshine.
(repeat 'til fade)
No, I will not be writing parodies for all the Canadian Prime Ministers, like I did for all the U.S. Presidents. Besides, you try coming up with a rhyme for "Diefenbaker." "Stephen Harper" is gonna be hard enough... and not just to rhyme.

Mike, my man, I thought this was a really good parody, but I could've sworn that TOS was from the 70's.
Michael Pacholek - January 31, 2006 - Report this comment
It was. It was 1970, and I thought it was 1968 for some reason. But if you gave me a 4-1-1, and I don't mean "the information," then I most certainly am not your man.

I assure you I didn't make that vote. The decade police must have. My vote was 4,4,4.

Big spending was not cheap - it cost Martin his job. Let's hope that big spenders in the U.S. get the message.

The biggest spender in the U.S. is Bush, and, as with every other time someone disagrees with him, he chooses to smear the messengers.
