Canada’s REALLY Big!

Canada’s Really Big — The Arrogant Worms

Album: Live Bait  1997

When I look around me,¬† I can’t believe what I see.

It seems as if this country has lost its will to live.

The economy is lousy, we barely have an army.

But we can still stand proudly ’cause 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 USA has tanks, and Switzerland has banks

They can keep them, thanks, they just don’t amount.

‘Cause when you get down to it, you 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!

(it’d take a lotta work, it’d take a whole lotta work)

We’re larger than Malaysia, almost as big as Asia

We’re bigger than Australia and it’s a continent!

So big we seldom bother to go see one another

But we often go to other countries for vacations…

Our mountains are very pointy,

Our prairies are not.

The rest is kinda bumpy,

But, man, do we have a lot!

(we gotta lot of land, we gotta whole lot of land)

So stand up and be proud

And sing out very loud

We stand out from the crowd ’cause

Canada’s really big!

Luise:

Being a poem, rhyme and verse fanatic, I loved the above. It was so cleverly worded — and sure got the message across. Thanks for sharing.

I am sure I never would have seen it otherwise.

Cheers,

Judy
