There have been plenty of songs written about Alberta - songs about the open skies, the oil in the sand, there are now songs about June's devastating floods.

But what happens when you take songs that have already been penned and change the lyrics to ones better suited for the prairie province?

As several Twitter users demonstrated recently, using the hashtag #albertalyrics, you get a hilarious and somewhat scathing commentary about the state of affairs in the province. No topics were off limits - everything from the provincial budget, to a questionable piece of public art and the Edmonton Oilers struggling hockey franchise were poked fun at.

Click through the slideshow below and see if you can match up the lyrics to their intended songs. If you have some ideas for great #albertalyrics, share them with us on Twitter, or leave them in the comments below.
