Thread Name: Lyr/Chords Req: Canadian 'anthem'
Subject: RE: Lyr/Chords Req: Canadian 'anthem'
I found the lyric. The Arrogant Worms who wrote the song open their Canadian concerts with this song. After insulting "O Canada" they(the are a trio) march around out of step but with tight harmony and sing this marvelous nonsence.

CANADA'S REALLY BIG from the Arrogant worms "Live Bait" album

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 cuz Canada's really big.

We're the second largest country on the planet earth
and if Russia keeps on shrinking then soon we'll be the 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
Cuz when you get down to it you find out what the truth is
It isn't what you do with it its 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 lot of work, it'd take a lot of 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
Though we often go to other countries for vacations

Our mountains are very pointy, our prairies are not
The rest is kind of bumpy, but man do we have a lot
(we've got a lot of land, we've got a lot of land)

So stand us and be proud and sing out very loud
We stand out from the crowd cuz Canada's really big.
