The Lyrics

The Premiers (equivalent to our Governors) of Canada's 10 Provinces are meeting with new Prime Minister Stephen Harper at the PM's official residence at 24 Sussex Drive in Ottawa. They all want something from him, particularly his fellow Conservatives, who got frozen out by Jean Chretien and Paul Martin for 12 years, the poor babies. He hasn't been in office long enough to develop much of a record to judge him on yet, but at this rate, Harper's gonna end up feeling like early-Twenties U.S. President Warren Harding: "I can handle my enemies, but, oh, my friends! Lord save me from my damn friends!"
Oo-woo, oo-oo-woo...
Oo-woo, oo-oo-woo...
Oo-woo, oo-oo-woo...
Oo-woo, oo-oo-woo...

Well, it's off to Ottawa for me.
Couldn't get much there before.
Steve, I got a wish list, you see.
And now, I'm knockin' on Harper's door.

Knock-knock-knockin' on Harper's door.
Knock-knock-knockin' on Harper's door.
Knock-knock-knockin' on Harper's door.
Knock-knock-knockin' on Harper's door.

Steve, spend more on our country's schools.
Make taxes lower than before.
Keep treating Liberals like they're fools.
That's why I'm knockin' on Harper's door.

Knock-knock-knockin' on Harper's door.
Knock-knock-knockin' on Harper's door.
Knock-knock-knockin' on Harper's door.
Knock-knock-knockin' on Harper's door.

Oo-woo, oo-oo-woo...
Oo-woo, oo-oo-woo...
(repeat 'til fade)
Now, I'm not doing parodies for all of Canada's Prime Ministers, the way I did for all of America's Presidents. But if I were... 2 down (see "Paul Martin"), 20 to go.
