A Song for the Ongoing Canada Day Party

Thanks to Teena of It's All About Me!!! (go visit her site!) here are the words to Weird Al Yankovic's song Canadian Idiot (a parody of Green Day's American Idiot). I swiped the URL for the YouTube video as well. Me bad.

Click HERE or on the picture to listen and follow the words. Let's sing it as a group song... Everyone? Here we go:

Canadian Idiot - Weird Al Yankovic

Don't want to be a Canadian idiot
Dont want to be some beer swillin' hockey nut
And do I look like some frost bitten hosehead
I never learned my alphabet from "A" to "Zed"

They all live on donuts and moose meat
And they leave the house without packin' heat
Never even bring their guns to the mall
And you know what else is too funny
Their stupid monopoly money
Can't take 'em seriously at all

Well maple syrup and snow's what they export
They treat curling just like it's a real sport
They think their silly accent is so cute
Can't understand a thing they're talking aboot

Sure they got their national health care
Cheaper meds, low crime rates and clean air
Then again well they got Celine Dion
Eat their weight in Kraft macaroni
And dream of driving a zamboni
all over Saskatchewan

Don't want to be a Canadian idiot
Won't figure out the temperature in Celcius
See the map they're hovering right over us
Tell you the truth it makes me kinda nervous

Always hear the same kind of story
Break their nose and they'll just say sorry
Tell me what kind of freaks are that polite
It's gotta mean they're all up to something
So quick before they see it coming
time for a pre-emptive strike

(Thanks again Teena!)

Too funny! :) Thanks for sharing! :D

What is it about us Canadians that makes us so easy to poke fun at? ;) Our easy-going nature? *grin*

I agree nobody. It simply is NOT POSSIBLE for a lamer sport than curling to exist. NOT POSSIBLE.

I am late for the party! What else is new?

I love the kitty pictures! I agree with you about peeing in the pool. I read through everything I missed, I just didn't comment on it all. lol.

Lynda, I'm so glad you made it. Go have a Molson's or Sans's Black Sea Clamato drink. And there are still a few TimBits left.

Peeing in the pool--there ought to be a law, I tell you. (Thanks for reading everything! That goes back quite a while.)

Caylynn--I LOVE Canadians. You guys make the best neighbors: polite, sociable, and quiet. :)

I think we should all just unite. We can all become either Americanadians or Canadamericans.

Gord and I are going curling in a couple weeks for the first time. I'll let you know how it goes.

Teena, you're going to be the first person I've even known to go curling. I positively want to know how it went--can't wait!
Think about whether you'd be willing to do a guest post here on my blog about curling once you've gone. That would be so cool!
Let me know!

Canadamericans - I like that. Let's go with it. LOL

I've never curled either .. well except for my hair, I loved my curling iron back in the 80's.

Hey Zed ...I just got an idea. If you ever run out of Countries to have parties for (yeah right) you could always have themed parties like say a 70's party or an 80's big hair party. What do you think? :)

Great idea Tricia. I'll try to do a 70s party in two weeks! (Next week's the Brazil Day party and Carnivale) Love it!
