The Lyrics

Funny thing, Canada actually calling its liberal party the Liberal Party (a.k.a. the "Grits," meaning "all sand and no dirt; clear grit all the way through," a reference to the type of sand preferred in the preparation of masonry), and its conservatives the Conservative Party (a.k.a. the "Tories," from a Gaelic word meaning a criminal's pursuit, thus doubly ironic considering the British Tories). Alexander Mackenzie was the first Liberal Party Leader to become Prime Minister of Canada, but he's not exactly held up in the party's pantheon like Wilfrid Laurier, Mackenzie King and Pierre Trudeau.
Ah, look at all the lonely Liberals.
Ah, look at all the lonely Liberals.

Alex Mackenzie
headed the Liberal Party begun by George Brown
handed it down.
Government forming
after Sir John A. Macdonald, his leadership fell.
Will he do well?

All the lonely Liberals.
They chose him as the one.
All the lonely Liberals.
Will they now come undone?

Alex Mackenzie
won the election of eighteen and seventy-four
by a big score.
Look at him working
trying to reform the way that Canadians live.
What can he give?

All the lonely Liberals.
They chose him as the one.
All the lonely Liberals.
Will they now come undone?

Ah, look at all the lonely Liberals.
Ah, look at all the lonely Liberals.

Alex Mackenzie
losing control, needs election to cement his fame.
Nobody came.
Alex Mackenzie
seeing his party collapse as he's led to his grave.
Laurier saved.

All the lonely Liberals.
(Ah, look at all the lonely Liberals.)
They chose him as the one.
All the lonely Liberals.
(Ah, look at all the lonely Liberals.)
It now must be redone.

I don't know why all those Australian political ads are on the right, here - or are they local ads for this part of the world, sourced by "Liberal Party"? - btw good read, MP, but do not know who the hell you're talking about!
