Manitoba's newest political party has a platform, a slate of candidates … and even its own campaign theme song.

The Manitoba Party, which was recently registered to run in this spring's provincial election, has written a ditty to the tune of Yellow Submarine by the Beatles.

Manitoba Party president Joe Chan said he co-wrote the song and a "paid duo" performed it.

"The song came about to wake up those that no longer vote and those that vote but with nothing to vote for," Chan said in an email to CBC News on Thursday.

"A song is a good way to tap into the emotions to explain the current situation between the government and the people governed."

The Manitoba Party was officially registered with Elections Manitoba on March 24, just weeks ahead of the April 19 provincial election.

The party has 16 candidates running in Winnipeg and rural Manitoba, including Chan, who is running in the Logan constituency, and leader Gary Marshall, who is running in Kildonan.

The Manitoba Party's platform calls for cutting the provincial sales tax from eight per cent down to five per cent.

CBC News is waiting to hear back from the Manitoba New Democrats, who also have their own campaign song.

Chan provided the lyrics to the Manitoba Party song, shown below. The party plans to post audio of the tune on YouTube, "with English subtitles and a few pictures," he said.

In the land that I call home
Was a hard time
Oh yes indeed
Under the orange
How things have changed
Price hikes are too much to bear

Now if the Blue get in the door
We're in for trouble and so much more
All they want is to privatize
And we can do is say goodbye

All we want is, a better way of life
A better way of life, a better way of life
all we want, a better way of life

A better way of life, a better way of life
So let's let's go with the yellow team

Now the Red don't really count
But we've included them
So they don't cry

All we want is, a better way of life
A better way of life, a better way of life
All we want, a better way of life
A better way of life, a better way of life
So let's all go with the yellow team

Yellow Term Full steam ahead

Our government is so corrupt 
We've lost faith in who we trust
In the end we all get hurt
Our PST keeps going up 

All we want is, a better way of life
A better way of life, a better way of life
All we want, a better way of life
A better way of life, a better way of life
So let's all go with the yellow team

What does Orange mean? Non Democratic Party 

What does Blue mean? Privatization Party

What does Green mean? Stone Age Party

What does Red mean? Self-Destruction Party

What does Yellow mean? Your winning party!!!!!
