Blame It On La Commission
It started a while ago, no one asked you or me
Remember Dorchester Boulevard?
That was quite a shocker
One of these days you'll step out of your house to see
You're living on Rue Lucien Bouchard

Place Jacques Parizeau, Rue Camille Laurin
Will one day hit you in the eye
But you'll never see Place Pierre Trudeau
No matter how much time goes by
And you'll never see Rue Mordecai

In Russia St. Petersburg was changed to Leningrad
You would think that it can't happen here
But you would be wrong
If you look on a map, you'll see it already did
St. Petersburg in French is Ville St. Pierre

I'd like to express my personal distress
And one of my biggest complaints
The townships used to be full of English history
Now it's full of saints
And quaint - it ain't.

We live in a country where if somebody steals from you
Legally you can say: "not so fast!"
And call the nearest cop
But what do we do when our own elected government
Quietly starts to steal our past?

Blame it on la Commission de la Toponomie
They're the ones who are rewriting
All our history
And erasing
You and me
