about

A sarcastic sing-along recorded in 2018 about white liberals' desire to leave the country rather than using their privilege to fix things.

lyrics

I wanna be a Kiwi
I wanna be in the Lord of the Rings
Or any movie
Forget reality, so to prepare myself
I'm turnin' off the TV
The fake-news corporate-media-machine
And walkin' 'round in my bare feet
Cause that's what they're doin' in
New Zealand
(hey, hey, don't move away)

I wanna be a Mountie
I wanna live in a thicket of trees
Out with the grizlies
Forget the smell of concrete, and for now
I'm turnin' off the TV
There ain't enough Colin "Mockery" (sic)
Or Ryan Gosling
Cause they're what's up in
Canada
(hey, hey, don't move away)

I wanna be a poet,
In Barcelona, or Venice, or Nice,
Those are some cool cities
They're in Europe I think, so to prepare myself
I'm turnin' off the TV
There ain't enough subtitles for me
I'm learnin' to stay classy
Cause that's how to be when you're
European
(hey, hey, don't move away)

I wanna be a Kiwi
I wanna be in the Lord of the Rings
Or any movie
(hey, hey, don't move away)
