Canadian War Hawk (a play on American Woman) by Larry Sutherland

Canadian War Hawk

Canadian War Hawk, gonna mess your mind
Canadian War Hawk, he gonna mess your mind
Canadian War Hawk gonna mess your mind
Canadian War Hawk gonna mess your mind

Say C, say A, say N
Say A, say D, A
Say I, N

Canadian War Hawk gonna mess your mind
Stephen Harper gonna mess your mind
Canadian War Hawk gonna mess your mind

Canadian War Hawk, get away from me
Stephen Harper, let Canada be

Don’t come spying around my door
I don’t want your propaganda ’round here no more

I got more important things to do
Then spend my time going to war with you

Now Canadian War Hawk, I said stay away
Stephen Harper, listen what I say

Canadian War Hawk, get away from me
Stephen Harper, let Canada be
Don’t come spying around my door
Don’t want your propaganda ’round here no more

Stories of torture are in the news
Why doesn’t that give you the blues?
Now Canadian War Hawk, I said stay away
Stephen Harper, listen what I say

Canadian War Hawk, said get away
Stephen Harper, listen what I say
Don’t come spying around my door
Don’t want your propaganda ’round here no more
I don’t need your planes dropping bombs for me
Don’t think that will make Canada any more free

Stories of torture are in the news
Why doesn’t that give you the blues?
Now Canadian War Hawk, get away from me
Stephen Harper, man, let me be

Go, gotta get away, gotta get away
Now go, go, go, I’m gonna leave you
Gonna leave you
Bye-bye, Bye-bye, Bye-bye, Bye-bye
You’re no good for peace
I’m no good for war

You’re no good for peace
I’m no good for war

Tell you what I’m gonna do
You know I’m gonna leave
You know I’m gonna go
You know I’m gonna leave
You know I’m gonna go

I’m gonna leave you
Goodbye, Canadian War Hawk
