Subject: RE: If I had the wings of an angel - parodies

1. If I had a plane like Pattullo,
    O'er these high mountain ranges I'd fly
    I'd fly to the city of Ottawa,
    Where they say all our grievances lie.

2. But now we're in British Columbia
    And this is our domiciled home,
    And we've all had our fill of those train rides,
    We no longer desire for to roam.

3. So we'll follow the birds to Victoria,
    To try to prevail upon Duff
    That it's work with a wage that we're after -
    So cut out this transient stuff!

source, “Post Office” strike pamphlet (”Sitdowner’s Gazette”), 1938
Duff Patullo was the provincial premier at the time.
