The Lyrics

Six hundred and twenty-five days. One term of 537 days in 1920-21 and another of 88 days in 1926. That's how long Sir Arthur Meighen was Prime Minister of Canada. It was about 625 days too long.
(instrumental opening)

All alone in the House of the Commons.
And the coalition's faded into blue.
He was thinking 'bout the Liberals who might have
stuck with him but now that's through.

You know he's always been so English.
(Works his job for Lord Byng.)
And it's so hard to change.
(He hates Mackenzie King)
But the dreams he's seen lately
keep on turning out and burning out
and turning out a shame.

So he'll never get his way.
And he's seen the sign.
It's Meighen at the limit one more time.

He could spend opposition making trouble
but he ain't that much trouble to oppose.
And it all falls to pieces tomorrow.
Will he still be whine?

And when you're saying you're still British
(nobody seems to care)
and you get shown the door
(can't see it anywhere)
when it's not Canada you believe in
still you're coming back, you're running back
you're coming back for more?

So he'll never get his way.
And he's seen the sign.
It's Meighen at the limit one more time.

Meighen at the limit
Meighen at the limit
Meighen at the limit
one more time.
Meighen at the limit
Meighen at the limit
Meighen at the limit
one more time.
Meighen at the limit
Meighen at the limit
Meighen at the limit
one more time.
(repeat 'til fade)
This leaves 1873-78, 1891-96, 1911-20, 1930-35, and 1948-2003. Let's see, can I work the word "tariff" into a parody title? If not, those four guys in the 1890s between Macdonald and Laurier are gonna be tough to do.
