Mike Ford - Turn Them Ooot
What a riot. With this song, Mike Ford has found a way to make political reform both interesting and funny (although, having a character like William Lyon Mackenzie helps as well). The kids love tis song.
TURN THEM OOOT!
Words & Music: Mike Ford
from the album “Canada Needs You - vol. 1” – MapleMusicRecordings
TURN THEM OOT, TURN THEM OOT –
THE TORIES GET THE BOOT
WE’LL RISE AGAINST THE FAMILY COMPACT
AND QUICKLY TURN THEM OOT!!!!!!!
Have ya read my latest tract about the Family Compact
It tells how they are scum and let me tell ye that’s a fact
World-wide in this present day, reform and justice are on their way
But in backwards Upper Canada it’s all corruption and decay
Do ye love freedom?
Would you like to own yer own land?
Have judges that respect ye?
Have the roads paved a bit?
Would ye like to roll up the rim to win?
Be swallowed up by the United States???
......Then we’ll have to do it on our ourselves!!!!
So if you’ve had it with their bull, you farmers can be quite helpful
Grab your pitchforks and we’ll march for government that’s responsible!
TURN THEM OOT, TURN THEM OOT - THE TORIES GET THE BOOT
WE’LL RISE AGAINST THE FAMILY COMPACT AND QUICKLY TURN THEM OOT!!!!!!!
