Under the Bus in Harperland

Here We Come!

Tune:  Alexander’s Ragtime Band Here we come, here we come! Every Granny’s got her drum, Here we come, here we come! Causing pandemonium, Saying no to XL with the loudest decibel Idle No More, they’ll be glad to shut the door To every tarsands site they found, Leave it underground! Here we go, here we go, Letting corporations know It’s a scam, it’s a scam Selling oil to the last dram, And if it’s true they’ve got the money We’ve got the numbers! Join the band! join the band! We are off to save the land.

Pierre Polievre is just a party hack

Tune: Glory, Glory Halleluja Pierre Polievre is just a party hack He doesn’t care about you and me He’s got nobody’s back.

All that sticky, goopy gunk What if it should blow?   Pipeline, pipeline Water’s all around Oil will kill the water birds And contaminate the ground.   Pipeline, pipeline Age 55 or more Rusty holes and blockages Are certainly in store!   Pipeline, pipeline Murphy’s always there.
