about

This is a three-minute edit of a five-minute piece from the next TPEG album.

lyrics

How is your visit to Canada?
Is it all it's expected to look?
Did you make it through customs inspection?
Did they mistake you for a trespassing crook?
Did you tell 'em your SS number?
That's the only thing they need to see.
Tell me about Nova Scotia,
and send it on a postcard to me.

In this province, you'll find eateries,
Pewter and pottery stores.
Don't forget the Peggy's Cove Lighthouse,
Just north of the Halifax shore!
Saw a picture of your lovely log cabin.
And a small private beach on the lake.
Did you ever decide to go row boating?
An exhilarating experience to take!

Gimme a little more about Scotia
What other things were there to do?
Did you do miles in a kilometer speed zone?
Did you have to spell "color" with a "U"?
Chow on marshmallows round a bon fire?
Play bocce ball with your friends?
Talk classic episodes of Second City,
And wish this trip wouldn't end?

How was your visit to Canada?
Was it all it was cracked up to be?
Tell me about Nova Scotia,
And send it on a postcard to me.
