- St. John's -

Come to St. John's, you'll learn soon enough
We don't know virgins round here
Where we demand variety
So common and so dear
You'll come to know the current's fine
It rarely gets too deep
Little comes above the waist
Except around the brink

Come and join our family
You'll see no social ill
Save occasions when you're out
Cos liquor tends to spill

Come to St. John's, you'll learn soon enough
We don't know virgins round here
Where days are as predictable as the taste of pasteurized beer
We'll thrive on plastic pleasure
And drink until we're ill
Pay bartabs with credit cards
Kick mom and dad the bill

Come to St. John's, you'll learn soon enough
We don't know virgins round here
Where talk remains predictable
And the meaning disappears
But mind your words regardlessly
Cos love and hope and work
Command much less damn respect
Than most four letter words

Come to St. John's, you'll learn soon enough
We don't know virgins round here
Where fun, joy and happiness
Are always really near
Though a distant place if found by map
It's nearer than you think
If study of maps or study at all
Were never quite your thing
