The Lyrics

The War Measures Act, the Conscription Act, "Imperial preference"... Maybe it was all necessary to get Canada through World War I, but, to this day, there are people in Quebec who'll take five twenty-dollar bills, all with Queen Elizabeth's picture on them, rather than a hundred-dollar bill, with the picture of Sir Robert Laird Borden, Prime Minister, 1911-20.
There I was, so nicely living
doing work downtown.
But our government is giving
orders from the Crown!
Feels as though they do not care
if I live or die.
I know France needs our help, too.
But I'm not English guy!

Borden's the law! Borden's the law!
Borden's the law! Borden's the law!
Borden's the law! Borden's the law!
Borden's the law! Borden's the law!

(second verse)

So much for the golden future.
I'm in Flanders Field.
Brother's not a spy for Germans.
Jailed 'cause someone squealed.
You don't know what it was like.
You don't have a clue.
I'm a hundred ten years old.
How'd I make it through?

Borden's the law! Borden's the law!
Borden's the law! Borden's the law!
Borden's the law! Borden's the law!
Borden's the law! Borden's the law!

You don't know what it was like...

Borden's the law! Borden's the law!
Borden's the law! Borden's the law!
Borden's the law! Borden's the law!
Borden's the law! Borden's the law!

Luckily , I'm the kind of guy who doesn't give a crap about what you think. If I did , I'd have to kill myself.
