Last played: 1990/04/11 Montreal, QC
Debut: 1990/04/11 Montreal, QC
Album: Road Apples (1991)
Notes: Once? Really? Well, too bad in a way. This is an instance to The Hip educating its fans. Check out The Hip Museum to read about the song's meaning... Once? WTF?...


Rolling hills all covered in suede
I'm heat-nervous and out of road
Downtown, there's a parade
But I don't think I wanna go
Smart as trees in Sault Ste. Marie
I can speak my mother tongue
Passing laws, just because
And singing songs of the English unsung

How could you do it?
How could you even try?
When you were born in the water
And you were raised up in the sky?

Front seat stamped by the window
No erasees in this game
Arbitrary as the wind blows
It's another way to lay claim
Ain't no cause for blood-thirsting
In a little town so dry
Where the angels dance on a pinhead
Just to make room for you and I

How could you do it?
How could you even try?
When you were born in the water
And you were raised up in the sky

Thoroughbred with their great big heads
Think a mile might be too far
Highway horse laugh, but of course
When they don't know where the hell they are
Smart as trees in Sault Ste. Maire
Victorious mother tongue
Passing laws just because
Singing songs of the English unsung

Well how could you do it?
How could you even try
When you were born in the water
And you were raised up in the sky


Next song: Long Time Running
Previous song: The Luxury
