lyrics

Once I went to California
To try myself a tasty dish
But my friends I’d better warn ya
When I asked for a beer they gave me a pint of piss.

Once I went to New York City
To join myself in all the din,
But my welcome there was quite a pity
When I asked for a beer they robbed me to the skin.

Come let’s sing the Maritimes
Come and pour yourself a pint
Come let’s sing the Maritimes
The best damn times you’ll ever find.

Once I went out to Newfoundland
To try my luck with hook and rod
But I got a few stares and thought I might get pounded
When I asked for a beer they made me kiss a cod.

Once I went to Montreal
To see what things that could be seen.
I don’t think they understood me at all
When I asked for a beer they gave me a poutine.

Once I went out to Toronto
The most Canadian city under the moon
But I spun on my heel and shot out of there pronto
When I asked for a beer they didn’t have Picaroons
