I hopped off the bus,
We were singing a song.
I heard for ten bucks,
You can park on the lawn.

There's a man on the corner:
"Who's buying? Who's selling?"
As long as they're legit,
The cops aren't telling.

I wanna be
Under the lights,
Swept away
On summer nights.

If you give me your heart,
If you give me it all,
I promise I'll stick around for the fall.

From the barber shop
To the corner store,
It's like the whole city's buzzing.
I came last week
And the week before.
Feels like the Ticats are hummin'.

Saw some old friends
From down in T.O.,
But ol' Queen Lizzy
Will take them back home.

The look so sad
At the end of the night,
Blown out like Pink Floyd
Back in '75.

I wanna be
Under the lights,
Swept away
On summer nights.

Around here,
Folks like to say,
"Christmas might as well come on Labour Day."

I was down ten bucks,
I was taking a beating.
But I'll double up;
I've got a good feeling.

Next round's on me
If we cover the spread.
Next round's on me.
I'll be out of the red!

    Song MeaningThe Tiger-Cats is a Canadian Football Team based in Hamilton, which is where the Arkells attended university at McMaster. This song seems to be about an exciting time in the season for the Ti-Cats and how the whole city seems to be buzzing with excitement and pride.
