lyrics

Briefcases in hand, we've come up from the south,
come with the truth ready to spew from our mouths
we've come here to show you that life can be good
to help you to live the way we think you should

We want you to know that we're full of ideals
we want you to know our good intentions are real
but now that it's winter we don't know what to think
there's nothing to do but watch TV and drink

Come now Rosie, won't you turn out the light
Come warm up this northern Saturday night

Everybody's gone down to the community hall
the place is in a haze of cigarettes and alcohol
everyone's here just to have some good fun
everyone's here except the priest and the nuns

See all those young people they've come from the reserve
They wear their hearts on their sleeves just to cover their nerves
and those drunks in the corner that can't hardly see
well the big one's an off-duty RCMP

Come now Rosie, won't you turn out the light
Come warm up this northern Saturday night

Rosie I'm tired and bewildered and drained
this is not turning out to be just what I claimed
it would be way back when, so won't you give me your hand
though I see in your eyes that you don't understand

Come now Rosie, won't you turn out the light
Come warm up this northern Saturday night
