Prime Ministers Are People Too

Macdonald was our first P.M.

Known for all the money he skimmed

His railway linked the whole country

He dreamed big, he joined two seas

Mackenzie made the Natives sign treaties

When trouble broke he sent the Mounties

Macdonald got another shot

People said he drank a lot

 

Chorus

Prime Ministers are people too

They make mistakes like people often do

Canada is still the best you know

Our leaders rule as far as leaders go

 

Abbott, Thompson, BOWeLL (not BOWell)

Tupper was quick to throw in the towel

Laurier was the first French in power

Sun shone brighter during his hour

 

Borden came for World War I

Meighen made sure war stuff got done

King lasted longer than anyone

Bennett had a Depression

 

Laurent saw sadness everywhere

So he started up welfare

"Dief the Chief" thought that nucs weren't fair

He bought warplanes and stripped them bare

 

Pearson gave us flag and song

Trudeau said, "FLQ you're wrong."

Clark was there then he was gone

Some guys don't last long

 

Trudeau brought our constitution home

Turner filled in but wasn't known

Mulroney gave us G.S.T. full blown

He couldn't leave the States alone

 

Campbell's the first woman we've met

Chrétien decreased the debt

He said he'd stop the tax that we still get

Funny how they forget Prime

 

Ministers are people too

They make mistakes like people often do

Canada is still the best you know

Our leaders rule as far as leaders go

(Paul Martin, he just sailed right in there What do you think he's going to do? Who knows?) Oh Canada, our home and native land...

 

(This song was written before Stephan Harper came into office. You should add you own lyric to include him.)
