The Ballad of Steve Harper

In honour of our Prime Minister's latest scandal, and as requested by Canadian Cynic on Twitter (@canadiancynic).  Sorry I couldn't perform it for you!

THE BALLAD OF STEVE HARPER (TO THE TUNE OF FLATT AND SCRUGGS' "BALLAD OF JED CLAMPETT")

Come and listen to a story 'bout a man named Steve
Rich Prime Minister abed with industry
The one day he was hidin' what he do
And up from the rabble came a proper "Fuck you"
(Rage that is, ice cold, voters seethe)

Well of course y'all know ol' Steve's a hillbilly
Canuck folk said Steve get away from me
Said down in Texas is where ya oughta be
So he loaded up his limo and became a true Dixie
(Rube that is, right wing, ignorant)

Well now it's time to say goodbye to Steve and all his kin
They would like to thank us all for voting them all in
You're all invited back again to re-vote PC
If you don't give a crap about your fine country
(Texas Hillbilly, that's what they call 'im now.
Nice folks.  Y'all stay away now, ya hear?)


Ah . . . we can dream.
