wow, that's the first song i know with "Tuktoyaktuk" as a lyric, lol

here is a gal's comments about accuracy (according to her anyhow):

I feel however, as one of the Canadian Girls that he is supposedly talking about, that I should say he is OFF on a couple of things.

Here is a list of the things he says in his song that are attributes or things that are attached to Canadian Girls.
She grew up watching hockey with her daddy on Saturday nights - True...well, I think so...I didn't keep track of the days.
He taught her how to tie her skates - Not sure...it may have been my mom.
Her brothers taught her how to fight - So very very true.
She can wear high heels or flannel - "Can" being the operative word here...not a fan of either.
She can look sexy in a toque - Definitely love rocking the toque, but that is more of a lazy quality so I don't have to brush my hair.
She likes snow storms and Gordon Lightfoot - Um, FALSE and only "If You Could Read My Mind"
Irresistible, lovable trouble though sometimes - I guess...definitely the third.
Likes to snow board - Are we talking about a wilderness girl? Cause I prefer the indoors.
Spends her summers out on a boat - Yeah definitely wilderness girl...definitely spend my summers on land...concrete land.
Thinks a perfect night out is a cabin - Thinks the perfect night out is not out in the woods with wild animals, bugs and drafty living areas.
Smell of coffee on a old wood stove - how long does that take to make? Hell no.
She won't admit she watched Degrassi - Cause I don't. How the mother eff did Degrassi make it in here?
She cries sometimes quiet - What does this even mean? That we don't loudly sob? ...this is true, unless I am watching Armageddon.
True north national treasure, she'd give her life for the Red and White - Pfft. Obviously.
So, he is somewhat on and somewhat off. I really just wanted to bitch him out for saying we all watch Degrassi. Gross.

XOXO
Jes...



LYRICS:

She grew up watching hockey
With her daddy on Saturday nights
He taught her how to tie her skates
Her brothers taught her how to fight
She can wear high heels or flannel
She can look sexy in a touque
She likes snow storms and Gordon Lightfoot
And if you’re lucky she’ll love you
Canadian girls, Canadian girls
Irresistable, lovable trouble those sometimes girls
We can travel the world
From New York to Paris France
But we're always gonna come back
Canadian girls
Baby she likes to snow board
Spends her summers out on a boat
Thinks a perfect night out is a cabin
Smell of coffee on an old wood stove
She won’t admit she watched Degrassi
She cries sometimes quiet
True northern national treasure
She'd give her life for Red and White
Canadian girls, Canadian girls

Irresistable, lovable trouble those sometimes girls
We can travel the world
From New York to Paris France
But we're always gonna come back
Canadian girls
Us boys we like our fishing
Our hockey and Ron McLean
We like moose head beer and white tail deer
Stompin Tom and the USA
We like our foreign ladies
Their accents are really nice
But there aint nothing like our northern girls
To keep us warm at night
Canadian girls, Canadian girls
Irresistible, lovable trouble those sometimes girls
We can travel the world
From New York to Paris France
But were always gonna come back
Canadian girls
From the mountains to the ocean sands
Tuktoyaktuk to Newfoundland
Yeah you keep us coming back
Canadian girls
