A G20 song

From the mind of @pmoharper, a timely song for the G8/G20 summit.

Music:



Lyrics:
*sung to melody of IF I HAD A MILLION DOLLARS by the Bare Naked Ladies.*

If I had a $1 billion dollars (If I had a $1 billion dollars)
I'd put on 2 global summits ( I'd put on 2 global summits)
If I had a $1 billion dollars (If I had a $1 billion dollars)
I'd put them on at the same time (like back-to-back, simultaneous at the same time)
If I had a $1 billion dollars (If I had a $1 billion dollars)
I'd tell you it's cheaper (experts say, so what can you do?)
If I had a $1 billion dollars, you'd want some too...

If I had a $1 billion dollars
I'd hire 10000 cops
If I had a $1 billion dollars
At least 1000 for each block
If I had a $1 billion dollars
Maybe we could put up chain link fence round here
Wouldn't that be fabulous!

If I had a $1 billion dollars (If I had a $1 billion dollars)
I'd buy you 5 years of daycare (but not real daycare that's cruel)
If I had a $1 billion dollars (If I had a $1 billion dollars)
I'd buy you some foreign aid (save a couple million babies or more)
If I had a $1 billion dollars (If I had a $1 billion dollars)
There'd be no more abortion (All them crazy elephant bones)
If I had a $1 billion dollars, you'd want some too...

If I had a $1 billion dollars
I'd buy you tasers to control the crowd
If I had a $1 billion dollars
Hear those sound cannons sure are loud!
If I had a $1 billion dollars, you'd have to eat Kraft dinner

If I had a $1 billion dollars (If I had a $1 billion dollars)
I'd buy you a green dress (gotta save the environment, that's cool)
If I had a $1 billion dollars (If I had a $1 billion dollars)
I'd buy you some art (but nothing from the CBC, no way)
If I had a $1 billion dollars (If I had a $1 billion dollars)
I'd buy you a minister (haven't you always wanted a monkey?)
If I had a $1 billion dollars If I had a $1 billion dollars If I had a $1 billion dollars
If I had a $1 billion dollars of YOUR MONEY!
Ya gotta laugh, otherwise...
