Tune: Old MacDonald
Our Alberta has some parks Eyi, Eyi Oh
And to these parks we love to go Eyi, Eyi Oh
With a grey jay here and a big moose there
Here a dear, there a bear
Pristine land is everywhere!
We adore Alberta’s Parks Eyi, Eyi,Oh
Then the UCP got in Eyi, Eyi, Oh
Their plan for parks is such a sin Eyi, Eyi, Oh
Blow up mountains here, for a strip mine there
Sold off here, shut down there
Campsites lost from everywhere!
We don’t want our parklands sold
Eyi, Eyi, Oh!!
For our parks we have to fight Eyi, Eyi, Oh
Cos their destruction’s just not right Eyi, eyi, Oh
With an email here, and a letter there
Here some chalk, there some chalk
Sing our songs out everywhere!
Save the parks we love and know
Eyi, Eyi, Oh
Written by Calgary Raging Grannies, Spring 2020, after the UCP government stated it would sell certain parks, which it then restated as not sell, but “transfer” which it then restated as no, not “transfer” but “delist”, then sell.
