Sault Ste.Marie, be sweet to me.
I ain’t the dude I used to be.
I curved hockey sticks on the curb in the street.
And Sioux Sault Marie be sweet.

That’s when I was living on college pay.
450 a week, 65 a day.
These days I would not, but back then I might.
‘Cause when I look at it now it’s the same light.

Let us now praise simple men.
Without whom the work may never end.
My and my brother and all his friends,
Let us now praise simple men.

And let us not regret our goodness of heart.
They told me ‘you ain’t got the money, boy, don’t even start’.
These days I would not, but back then I might.
‘Cause when I look at it now it’s the same light.
Yeah, when I look at it now, it’s the same light.
