Totally Massive Plethora Of Heroes

Canada...WAKE UP!
Look behind you, your history's creeping
Canada...WAKE UP!
It's far too exciting for you to be sleeping
A totally awesome selection of heroes.
Terry Fox was a hero
Laura Secord warned us of a sneak attack
And Rene Levesque each day smoke a whole other pack
Oscar Peterson grooves us now that Trudeau's resigned
Take a look at their lives, it will blow your mind!
Stop in your tracks but don't relax
Try to pause to think, check out the facts
You've got Jacques and Gilles and Guy Phil
Margaret Atwood, [??]
Canadian people who are forever gonna be the heroes.
Canada...WAKE UP!
Ask your mother, I'll bet that she knows
A totally massive plethora of heroes.
Canada...WAKE UP!
There's a hero in every story
Canada...WAKE UP!
Some are left wing and some are Tory
A totally awesome selection of heroes.
What makes someone a hero?
Do you have to take a special course in school?
Or maybe save Grandad's life when he's fallen into the pool?
You've heard all about Superman, he's just a cartoon
But there's real superheroes and real things they were doin'
Once again we've got the story of the heroes
No flashy stars, no {???} like Robert DeNiro's
Different faces, different races
Working hard in different places
Canada...WAKE UP!
We've to Metis and mountainclimbers
Canada...WAKE UP!
Farmers, Hippies and Maritimers
A totally massive plethora of heroes.
Canada...WAKE UP!
You've probably got heroes next door
Canada...WAKE UP!
So what do we need this show for?
To show you an awesome selection of heroes
What makes someone a hero?
Do you have to win a war or build a fort?
Or maybe invent the phone, or win the gold in some sport?
Laurier straddled the Solitudes, Wayne and Schuster wore slacks
Our heroes give blood, then pay income tax.
Now and then, give yourself some time to think about
Your own heritage, {???}
{???} to store, from shore to shore, from rich to working poor
Celebrate and don't berate
All the women and men who made this nation great
Not just fancy cars and movie stars
{???}
Canadian people who are forever gonna be the heroes.
Canada...WAKE UP!
Ask your uncle, I'll bet that he knows
A totally massive plethora of heroes.
This is from a CBC program that Moxy Früvous was commisioned to write
songs for (back in the
early, early days) entitled Heritage Heroes.
