Ontario they make syrup
Québec ils jouent bien le hockey.
The maritimes have lobster
Nunavut has none of it eh?

The prairies they grow grass
In BC they grow it like stink
NWT they folk on the rocks
And in the Yukon we drink.

We drink when we are happy
We drink when we are sad.
We drink as though it’s going outta style
A forever passing fad.

We drink all through the winter
To stay warm and fight melancholy.
We drink all through the summer
The sun won’t sleep, so why should we?

We drink at school
We drink in a house or a car.
When we’re too drunk to be a door man.
We kick ourselves out of bar.

We drink when it is freezing.
We drink when it’s just cold.
We drink when anyone we know
Turns one more half day old.

We drink at the ski hill
We drink for a hole in one.
We drink with our Grandma
When she gets her colon done.

We drink as we grow old.
We drink when we’re breast fed.
We brush our teeth with vodka
And take two beers to bed.
