HOW DO YOU DO THAT? ( I'M A CANADIAN ) Sung by Racquel
Lyrics
HOW DO YOU DO THAT? (I'M A CANADIAN)
Written by Mary Cole and Greg Garrett

Verse 1
Hey, Mr. Pilot!
How d'you land that plane
Through all those trees and
Pouring rain?
The thunder and lightning was
Really fright'ning!
He said, "Ma'am,
You have to understand
I'm a Canadian...

( Backup voices: Ooooo!)

CHORUS
O will you pardon me,
I just need to know-
HOW DO YOU DO THAT?
HOW DO YOU DO THAT?
There are so few of you,
You live in so much snow-
HOW DO YOU DO THAT?
HOW DO YOU DO THAT?
You care for polar bears,
You bring peace ev'ry where
HOW DO YOU DO THAT?

Verse 2
Hey, Mr. Engineer!
How does Canadarm
Grab satellites
Away from harm?
How you help the space station
Defies imagination!
He said, "Ma'am,
You have to understand
I'm a Canadian..."
(Backup voices: Ooooo!)

CHORUS
O will you pardon me,
I just need to know-
HOW DO YOU DO THAT?
HOW DO YOU DO THAT?
There are so few of you,
You live in so much snow-
HOW DO YOU DO THAT?
HOW DO YOU DO THAT?
You care for polar bears,
You bring peace ev'ry where
HOW DO YOU DO THAT?

INSTRUMENTAL

He said, "Ma'am,
You have to understand
I'm a Canadian..."

CHORUS
O will you pardon me,
I just need to know-
HOW DO YOU DO THAT?
HOW DO YOU DO THAT?
There are so few of you,
You live in so much snow-
HOW DO YOU DO THAT?
HOW DO YOU DO THAT?
You care for polar bears,
You bring peace ev'ry where
HOW DO YOU DO THAT?

Noodle out on "Ma'am, I'm a Canadian.."
