The Lyrics

A parody about some of the many lies of Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chretien
Drove downtown in the rain 1:30 on a Saturday night
just to check out the late night liquor store
Call it impulsive, call it compulsive, call it insane
but when I am drinking I just can't stop

It's a matter of instinct, it's a matter of conditioning,
it's a matter of fact
I refer to Martin as Pavlov's dog
Ring a bell and he'll salivate, how'd about that?
John Manley tell me, you're not just a pedagogue
'cause right now I'm

Lying to get elected just like I Jean Chretien did
Well I, lied to get elected just like Jean Chretien did

So I'm lying here
Just like I did with Somalia
and I'm thinking about what to lie about
Just listening and relistening to Shelia Copps
and I'm wondering if this is some kind of political drought
because I'm

Lying to get elected just like I Jean Chretien did
Well I, lied to get elected just like Jean Chretien did

And if you want to find me I will be out in the penalty box
wondering when the hell the GST will be gone
Playing my guitar and creating lies in my head
And singing "jobs, jobs, jobs"

Lying to get elected just like I Jean Chretien did
Well I, lied to get elected just like Jean Chretien did

I had a dream
I was privatising the CBC
And although I was very happy
I sleeped until I would find the Red Book
I sleeped until I would find the Red Book
Somebody help me, I couldn't tell the truth
Somebody help me, I couldn't tell the truth
Somebody help me because I'm

Lying to get elected just like I Jean Chretien did
Well I, lied to get elected just like Jean Chretien did

Drove downtown in the rain 1:30 on a Saturday night
just to check out the late night liquor store
Call it impulsive, call it compulsive, call it insane
but when I am drinking I just can't stop
