Canadians--have you heard this?

I'm a huge Barenaked Ladies fan, and was wondering if anybody (especially you crazy Canucks out there! *wink*) have heard this one...

Canada's Really Big
When I look around me
I can't believe what I see
It seems as though this country has lost its will to live...
The economy's lousy,
We barely have an army,
But we can still stand proudly
'Cuz Canada's really big

We're the second...
...largest country...
...on this planet earth!
And if Russia
Keeps on shrinking,
Then soon we'll be first! (as long as we keep Quebec!)

The U.S.A. has tanks,
Switzerland has banks,
They can keep their banks,
'Cuz they just don't amount...
'Cuz when you get down to it,
You'll find out what the truth is:
It isn't what you do with it,
It's the size that counts!

Most people will tell you
That France is pretty large,
But you can put
fourteen Frances
Into this land of ours! (but I'd take a lot of work, I'd take a whole lot of work...)

We're larger than Malyasia,
Almost as big as Asia
We're bigger than Australia,
And *it's* a continent!
So big we sell them butter (?)
To go see one another
But we often go to other countries for vacations...

Ouuuuurrr mountains are very pointy
Our praries are not,
The rest is kind of bounty (?)
But man, do we have a lot! (we got a lot of land, we got a whole lot of land!)

So stand up and be proud,
And sing it very loud,
We stand out from the crowd 'cuz
Canadaaaaaaa's...Reeeeeallllllyyyyyyy...BIIIIIIIII IIIIIIIIIIIIIIG!
