Canadian mounted,baby
A police force that works
Red and black is their color scheme
Get their man in the end
It's all right...It's all right
You kill,you maim
You kill,you maim
Frontenac chateau,baby
I cross the fromtier at ten
Got a whip in my hand,baby
And a girl or a huskie at leather's end
It's all right...It's all right
You kill,you maim
You kill you maim
Hornswoop me bungo pony
Dog sled on ice
Make a dash for freedom,baby
Dont skate on polar ice
It's too thick to be sliced by the light
Of long,white polar nights
It's all right...It's all right
You kill,you maim
You kill,you maim
