lyrics

~Tar Sands Boogie~ (aka Oh Canuckistan)
©2010 Drew C. Rouse

1st verse: It's the tar sands boogie and its really ugly. They don't care about you or the Caribou. Its the tar sands boogie and its sticky and ugly. They don't care about me or you or the Caribou.

Chorus: Oh Canuckistan. Stop the tar sands.

2nd Verse: Its the tar sands boogie and its an ugly story about some fools who broke all of the rules. Its an oil companies promised land, and it belongs to the Native man, but its all about the benjamin$. Such an irresponsible and maniacal plan.

Chorus: Oh Canuckistan. Stop the tar sands.

3rd Verse: Its the tar sands boogie and its an ugly story about some fools who broke all of the rules. They clear cut the forests, digging up the bitumen. Poisoning the water and the Beaver Cree Clan. Setting off a carbon bomb that will annihilate man. Their sending a pipeline that will take the oil over the mountains and south across the line, down to Texas and a, to be refined. It will cost you twice, what they pay in California. Big hat no cattle, big hat no cattle, big ego no brain.

Chorus: Oh Canuckistan. Stop the tar sands.

Big hat no cattle (meaning: extremely ignorant or plain stupid)
