It Ain't Funny (Pamela Morgan) video

His lullaby the waves outside his window,
His father and himself made a wonderful pair;
Five hundred years of fishing in his family,
Still the government wouldn't listen,
He said, "Trouble down there."
It ain't funny, it ain't funny no more.

Fat cat smirking in the land of plenty,
Making jokes about a people
and a country from a gentler time;
Sanctioned and applauded
the whole gang-rape of the place,
But like any rape they blame
the victim for the crime.
It ain't funny, it ain't funny no more.

Political posturing now is the ultimate insult,
It's too little too late - what's left is up for sale;
And the best small boatsmen in the world
are on the dole,
Stupid and lazy according to the Globe and Mail.

It ain't funny, nobody's laughing now,
It ain't funny, something has changed somehow;
It ain't funny, no.... it ain't funny no more.
It ain't funny, it ain't funny no more.
It ain't funny, it ain't funny no more.
