Happy Canada Day!

We're making hay while the sun shines today, and around 4 pm will head into town to the fairgrounds for the celebration, including games and crafts for the kids, the Legion's famous steak barbecue, and fireworks at 11 pm. After the bbq, we'll probably head home for a few hours' rest, and maybe catch Stompin' Tom's televised Canada Day concert so we can celebrate Canada Day Up Canada Way.

Canada Day Up Canada Way

It's bud the spud from the bright red mud
Goin' down the highway smiling.
The spuds are big on the back of Bud's rig
And they're from Prince Edward Island, they're from PEI.

Now from Charlottetown or from Summerside
They load him down for the big long ride.
He jumps in the cab and he's off with the pride Sobagos.
He's gotta catch the boat to make Tormentine & he heads up that old New B. line
Through Montreal he comes just a flyin' with another big load a badadoes.

Now the OPP don't think mucha Bud...
Yeah the cops a been lookin' for the son of a gun
That's been rippin' the tar off the 401.
They know the name on the truck shines up in the sun -- "Green Gables."
But he hits Toronto and it's seven o'clock when he backs 'er up agin the terminal dock.
And the boys gather round just to hear him talk
About another big load a badadoes!

Now I know a lot of people from east to west
That like the spuds from the island best.
Cause they'll stand up to the hardest test -- right on the table.
So when ya see that big truck rollin by -- wave yer hand or kinda wink yer eye,
Cause that's Bud the Spud from old PEI, with another big load a badadoes!


Slow -- because he's got another big load,
Of the best doggone badadoes that's ever been growed
And they're from PEI
They're from PEI
