"Blame Canada" is a song sung by the parents of South Park in the film South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut.

Background

The song marked the formation of Mothers Against Canada, the organization that would ultimately spark the American-Canadian War. The song blamed the nation of Canada for the production of Terrance and Phillip: Asses of Fire, a film which they held responsible for corrupting America's youth. The song was reprised in the film's medley.

During the 72nd Academy Awards ceremony, comedian and actor Robin Williams performed a version of "Blame Canada" appropriate for television. The song was nominated for an Academy Award, but lost to Phil Collins' "You'll Be in My Heart". Consequently, several parodies of Phil Collins appeared on South Park; in most of his appearances, Collins can be seen clutching his Oscar at all times.

The song was nominated for AFI's 100 Years…100 Songs, but did not make it on the final list.

An 8-bit version of the song is one of the overworld themes for Canada in South Park: The Stick of Truth. This version is also featured in South Park: The Fractured But Whole, played when the New Kid approaches the Canadian Wall.

Lyrics

"South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut"

Sheila:
Times have changed,
Our kids are getting worse!
They won't obey their parents,
They just want to fart and curse!


Sharon:
Should we blame the government?

Liane:
Or blame society?

Randy, Gerald, and Stuart:
Or should we blame the images on TV?

Sheila:
No, blame Canada!

Everyone:
Blame Canada!

Sheila:
With all their beady little eyes,
And flapping heads so full of lies!


Everyone:
Blame Canada!
Blame Canada!


Sheila:
We need to form a full assault!

Everyone:
It's Canada's fault!

Sharon:
Don't blame me,
For my son Stan,
He saw the darn cartoon,
And now he's off to join the Klan!


Liane:
And my boy Eric once,
Had my picture on his shelf,
But now when I see him he tells me to fuck myself!


Sheila:
Well, blame Canada!

Everyone:
Blame Canada!

Sheila:
It seems that everything's gone wrong,
Since Canada came along!


Everyone:
Blame Canada!
Blame Canada!


Copy Shack Employee:
They're not even a real country anyway!

Carol:
My son could have been a doctor or a lawyer, rich and true,
Instead, he burned up like a piggy on a barbecue!


Everyone:
Should we blame the matches?
Should we blame the fire?
Or the doctors who allowed him to expire?


Sheila:
Heck no!

Everyone:
Blame Canada!
Blame Canada!


Sheila:
With all their hockey hullabaloo,

Liane:
And that bitch Anne Murray too!

Everyone:
Blame Canada!
Shame on Canada!
For...
The smut we must stop,
The trash we will stash,
The laughter and fun,
Must all be undone,
We must blame them and cause a fuss,
Before somebody thinks of blaming us!

72nd Academy Awards version

Robin Williams:
Oh my God, they killed Kenny!

Times have changed,
Our kids are getting worse!
They won't obey their parents,
They just want to fart and curse!

Should we blame the government?
Or blame society?
Or should we blame the images on TV?
No!


Everyone:
Blame Canada!
Blame Canada!


Robin Williams:
It seems that everything's gone wrong,
Since Canada came along!


Everyone:
Blame Canada!
Blame Canada!


Robin Williams:
We need to form a full assault!

Everyone:
It's Canada's fault!

Robin Williams:
Don't blame yourself,
For your son Stan,
He saw the darn cartoon,
And now he's off to join the Klan!

And my boy Eric once,
Had my picture on his shelf,
But now when I see him he tells me to <gasp> myself!


Everyone:
Blame Canada!
Blame Canada!


Robin Williams:
Because when Canada is gone,
There'll be no more Celine Dion!


Everyone:
Blame Canada!
Blame Canada!


Robin Williams:
They're not even a real country anyway!

Kenny could have been a doctor or a lawyer, rich and true,
Instead he burned up like a piggy on a barbecue!


Everyone:
Should we blame the matches?
Should we blame the fire?
Or the doctors who allowed him to expire?


Robin Williams:
Heck no!

Everyone:
Blame Canada!
Blame Canada!

With all their hockey hullabaloo,
And that bitch Anne Murray too!

All I can say is "Oy gevalt!"

It's Canada's fault!

Robin Williams:
Everybody!

Everyone:
Blame Canada!
Blame Canada!


Robin Williams:
With Bryan Adams' beady eyes,
Margaret Trudeau's friendly thighs!


Everyone:
Blame Canada!
Shame on Canada!
For...
The smut we must stop,
The trash we will stash,
The laughter and fun,
Must all be undone,
We must blame them and cause a fuss,
Before somebody thinks of blaming us!
