Far Too Canadian

This song is by Spirit of the West and appears on the album Go Figure (1991).

I'm so content to stand in line,
Wait and see, pass the time,
Talk a streak, fall asleep,
Wake up late, whine and weep,
I kiss the hand that slaps me senseless,
I'm so accepting, I am so defenseless,

I am far too Canadian,
I am far too Canadian,

I pick the bones of what's been done,
And I'll lick them clean with a cautious tongue,
In dim lit rooms, I'll spill my guts,
I'm the revolution when the doors are shut,
I bite the hand that slaps me senseless,
But my patience it is... too relentless,

I am far too Canadian,
I am far too Canadian,

I am the face of my country,
Expressionless and small,
Weak at the knees, shaken badly,
Can't straighten up at all,
I watch the spine of my country,
Bend and break,
I'm in a sorry state,

I scratch the walls to mark the days,
With my coup-de-tete, I am locked away,
With mother Jones, pots of tea,
The kitchen poster, anarchy,
I never march in demonstration,
I hold my breath for arbitration,
I am far too Canadian,
I am far too Canadian,

I am the face of my country,
Expressionless and small,
Weak at the knees, shaken badly,
Can't straighten up at all,
I watch the spine of my country,
Bend and break,
I'm in a sorry state,
I am a sorry state,
Won't you welcome to the sorry state,

Weak at the knees, shaken badly,
Can't straighten up at all,
Can't straighten up at all,
Straighten up at all,
All.
