Alberta National Anthem

May be sung to the tune of the old Hymn of the Soviet Union, composed by Alexander Vasilyevich Alexandrov:

…In times dark and stormy
When Great Lougheed led us
Our drills sought the black gold
Of oil below!
And Stelmach Our Leader
With faith in the oil sands
Inspired us to wait
For the pipelines to flow!

Long Live our Tory Motherland!
Made for the bosses’ outstretched hands
Long live our bosses, who know what is best!
Strong economics forged by oil
Far down below our rocky soil
Here in the always conservative West…
