  • Now the lounge is full of farmers for the 7:30 draw
    Teammates all left before they had to buy a round
    When they pull the 50/50 and I've lost again, I'll go
    Maybe have one more brown one for the snowy road
    All the championship banners going yellow on the wall
    And my name when it gets closer to last call

    So Elvira brings my bottle, hold it up and let it bend
    Figures of two rinks battling in extra ends
    And I'm peeling off the label as they peel a corner guard
    Dance down the sheet to the tune of "Hurry, Hurry Hard"
    And my popcorn squeaks with the question, wonders why I'm not at home
    Where you wait beside a silent telephone
    Doodle circles within circles all alone
    Have to stop myself from climbing on the table full of empties to yell

    "Why, why can't I draw right up to what I want to say?"
    "Why can't I ever stop where I want to stay?"
    I slide right through the days, I'm always throwing hack weight
    Right off, no never never ever ever
    Right off, no never never ever never
    Right off, no never never never ever
    Right off, no never ever never ever
    Right off, no never never ever ever
    Right off, no never never ever never
    Right off, no never never never ever
    Right off, no never ever never ever

    Now the senior Bonspiel winners circa 1963
    Are all staring, glaring disapprovingly
    From their frame in that old photograph
    And I know you're out there waiting
    For an answer, I can't give you
    So tell me

    "Why, why can't I draw right up to what I want to say?"
    "Why can't I ever stop where I want to stay?"
    We roll right through our years
    We drift right through our months
    I slide through our days
    I'm always throwing hack weight
    Right off, no never never ever ever
    Right off, no never never ever never
    Right off, no never ever never ever
    Right off Writer/s: Greg Scott Smith, Jason Tait, John K Samson, Stephen Allan Carroll
