Talkin’ ’bout my secularization

With apologies to The Who

 

People try to put us d-down

(Talkin’ secularization!)

Just because veils make us frown

(Talkin’ secularization!)

In Quebec you do as t-t-told

(Talkin’ secularization!)

Or we’ll leave you in the cold

(Talkin’ secularization!)

 

We need secularization!

To be a sovereign nation, one day!

 

Why don’t you Anglos f-fade away

(Talkin’ secularization!)

Vous ne parlez pas francais, anyway

(Talkin’ secularization!)

We’re not trying to cause a big s-s-sensation

(Talkin’ secularization!)

With quasi-racist legislation

(Talkin’ secularization!)

 

We need secularization!

To be a sovereign nation, one day!

 

Just put your yamulkah away

(Talkin’ secularization!)

Don’t wear that hijab today

(Talkin’ secularization!)

We appreciate participation

(Talkin’ secularization!)

As long as your faith isn’t Asian

(Talkin’ secularization!)

 

So you believe in creation?

We’ll need a separation, baby!

 

Adapated, poorly, from My Generation, written by Pete Townshend and recorded by The Who in 1965.
