The Lyrics

I wish our country had somebody like Pierre Trudeau in the 1970s and early 1980s... or now. I wish his country had someone like him now, too: The rankings of Canada's Prime Ministers usually has him in the top three with the first, John A. Macdonald, and Wilfrid Laurier.
Monsieur, you've got to let me know.
Should I vote for you, Trudeau?
I'd vote for you and all your Grits.
Because the Tories are the pits.
So you've got to let me know.
Should I vote for you, Trudeau?

Oh, Monsieur, please, please, please!
They love you here from sea to seas.
Well, there's some trouble in Quebec.
Those separatists, they're full of dreck.
Well, come on and let me know:
Should I vote for you, Trudeau?

Should I vote for you, Trudeau, now?
Should I vote for you, Trudeau, now?
Your wife, Margaret, she gets in trouble.
And Bob Stanfield, he gives you double.
So you've got to let me know...

(instrumental break)

Oh, why did I vote for Joe Clark?
His nine-month reign was very dark.
I'm glad you're back there in the ministry.
Your Constitution's making history.
So, at last, I finally know:
I should vote for you, Trudeau!

Should I vote for you, Trudeau, now?
Should I vote for you, Trudeau, now?
Your wife, Margaret, she gets in trouble.
Rene Levesque, he gives you double.
So you've got to let me know...
I should vote for you, Trudeau!

Should I vote for you, Trudeau, now?
Should I vote for you, Trudeau, now?
Your wife, Margaret, she gets in trouble.
Those western guys, they give you double.
So you've got to let me know...

I should vote for you, Trudeau!
