The Ten Dollar Bill
Everything you need to know about Canada is written on this $10 bill.
Well, the bill is coloured purple, which rhymes with maple-cerpel,
that well-known product of our nation.
Made from paper from a tree from the lumber industry,
and it's wrinkled like half the population.
The number ten is there, cause Canada is where we have provinces,
and they number ten.
And the translator's tricks have turned the tent to dicks,
because our founding fathers were all men.
There's a picture of Sir John, a man with lots of talent,
but they had to write his name so nobody would claim,
hey, isn't that Woody Allen?
A coat of arms is on the note, cause to live here you need a coat,
you never know when there'll be a snow flurry.
And the Latin motto's words remind us of snow birds,
and Murray, Usquay, and Murray.
The lion's in recognition of our politicians,
and the unicorn is for the Irish rovers.
In spite of what they're called, they're not Irish at all.
They're Canadians and live in Vancouver.
The bill, it has two sides, just like our government.
The word Canada is ain't, although it's not distinct.
Well, we don't, like, want to cause a fence.
On the back is a watery scene, you might ask, what does it mean?
It can't just be there by mistake.
It's a representation of our shaky federation.
Yes, it's Beach Friggin Lake.
A bird has got his wish, it has caught a fish.
What kind doesn't matter when Iota?
Cause we all understand, especially those in Newfoundland,
that the bird has already exceeded its quota.
The head of states, the queen, but her picture is not there.
For although she's head of states, she's got so much on her plate
that she's elsewhere.
Well, everything you want to know about Canada
is right here on this ten dollar bill.
And I'll keep it, and I always will.
Never keep it on the windowsill.
So when I'm being questioned or I'm being grilled,
I just show them my ten dollar bill.
