Classified – Oh Canada lyrics

(Oh Canada we stand on guard, for thee)
I told this guy where I was from
He said oh, Canada
Kinda laughs it off, real funny huh?
Yeah, uh, come on

(Oh Canada)
1-2, 1-2,
Mic. Check, 1-2, 1-2
(Oh Canada)

Uh, yea
From the land of the lost, Trans-Canada crossed
Patriotic and a honor with a hand on my heart

From the greatest of lakes
To the greenest of greens
To the rockiest mountains
And everything in between

O-o-oh Canada
Oh you're no fan of us?
Cause our movie and tv shows are so amateur?
Yeah, we laugh it off, that don't really bother me
Look, we ain't serious unless you really gotta be

Humorous attitude like Kidz in The Hall
Like Jim Carey, Mike Myers, hell we claiming them all

It's the great white north
Home of the funniest actors
The butt of the joke
With an abundance of laughter

The red and white flag
Keep it high, keep it visual
People say Canada and get stereotypical
Think we finish every sentence with "buddy" or "bye"
And if it ain't that it's either "dude", "eh" or "guy"
Canadaka eh,
Yeah we consider it people
And smoking marijuana
We consider it legal

Still doing rap like the 1990's
But that's how we like it off timed and grimy

I know where I'm from and I told ya before
North of America hard to ignore
Every time I go away I tell them for sure
I'm from Canada o-o-oh Canada

(Oh Canada)
Oh Canada o-o-oh Canada
(Oh canada)
I'm from Canada
O-o-oh Canada

When Class makes a sick beat, we call it a classic (x4)

I've been around the globe and
Heard of confusion
Honestly a lot of y'all are ignorant and stupid

Yes, we have microwaves, tvs and cell phones
Unintelligent fuck, we invented the telephone
We made Yahtzee, the light bulb, hockey
And bred the greatest players - Gretzky to Crosby
We all got at least one drinking buddy
And after one drink, all of us think we're funny

Our national mascot's a damn beaver
Oh Canada we love our beaver
Home of Hell's Angels and rcmp
Home of Gordon Lightfoot and sctv

No doubt, the underground railroad
Georges St. Pierre
Right here is where he call home

Our health care system
Y'all know it's free
Keep a girl banging with a full mouth of teeth
I won't even get into the music industry
They say hip hop is dead
Nah it's up north with me
I could do this all day, it's a part of my routine
But supper's almost done and tonight - poutine!

I know where I'm from and I told ya before
North of America hard to ignore
Every time I go away I tell them for sure
I'm from Canada o-o-oh Canada
(I'm from the east coast of Canada)
O-o-oh Canada
(I'm from the east east east coast)
Yo yo!
Yeah, I'm from Canada so sometimes the words come out of my mouth like this
Get used to it!

(Oh Canada, we stand on guard for thee)
