The Lyrics

I was originally from Fremont, California (near the San Francisco Bay Area.) When I was four...Me, my brother and my folks went to Canada to visit my dad's uncle, and stayed for two weeks.
I don't eat fish I'll take the hook my dear
I like my boats done on one side
As you take a trip to my granduncle's house
I'm a Californian in Canada
See me going potty on the fish
A fishing hook here at my side
I take it everywhere I walk
I'm a Californian in Canada

Whoa oh, I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien
I'm a Californian in Canada
Whoa oh, I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien
I'm a Californian in Canada

If 'manners maketh man' as someone said
Then he's the fisher of the day
It takes my granduncle to suffer ignorance and smile
Be yourself no matter what Daddy says

Whoa oh, I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien
I'm a Californian in Canada
Whoa oh, I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien
I'm a Californian in Canada

I used to swim around the lake with my clothes on
I took a shower when I got cold and wet
Me and my brother used to pick berries from the plants
On a day at the Caviar Lake Lodge

Takes more than tackle box to make a man
Takes more than motor for a boat
Confront your fishes, avoid them from jumping back in
A gentleman will walk but never run
If 'manners maketh man' as someone said
Then he's the fisher of the day
It takes my granduncle to suffer ignorance and smile
Be yourself no matter what Daddy says

Whoa oh, I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien
I'm a Californian in Canada
Whoa oh, I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien
I'm a Californian in Canada
Whoa oh, I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien
I'm a Californian in Canada
Whoa oh, I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien
I'm a Californian in Canada

"Manners May Maketh The Man", but "Fishing Doth Not Maketh A Very Interesting Parody". Good 444
