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!

Lolol You have the song or just the lyrics?
I am from Quebec, and it's a matter of time till it's no longer part of Canada. Not sure what it will give us in the end, but only time will show

i've never heard it either... I think it's lousy so many from Quebec want sovereignty, but that's political, and politics is not to be discussed apparently. oh well... later,

I love the Barenaked Ladies, they have the funniest lyrics.

Sirestap: I don't know where you get your info! The sovereignty issue in Quebec has been at it's lowest point of interest and priority in years. It sure isn't going to happen soon!

I love the mother got to meet them when they were at the Folk Festival in Edmonton a few years back. I wish I was there. Anyways, I love the lyrics to that song...I can't say that I've heard it yet though.

I agree, BNL is awesome. We just got the greatest hits album too. Where in Canada are they from? Pretty cool that they made a song about us. ~TR~

Thats an Arrogant Worms song, who are a good, funny group too.

There is a fine line between a hobby and a mental illness.

Did the Arrogant Worms also do Jesues brother Bob and I'm the only gay eskimo, or was that Corky and the Juice pigs?
I love the BNL too but the Hip is the best Canadian group of all time. Hey that sounds like a new poll to me or thread at least. Name the best Canadian group of all time. I'd post it but I'm lazy.
