Several people asked me to put this out there so they can read the lyrics. To the tune of Petula Clark"s "Downtown". Enjoy!
"Whaletown", Lyrics by Rick Bockner
When the bustle of Mansons is getting you down, you can always go
There isn’t a whale and there isn’t a town. That’s how we got our name.
Listen to the thythm of the ferry traffic passing
Watch your neighbour’s dog and all the wildlife he’s harassing
The folks are much older there, so you can start up your chainsaws, They can’t even hear.
In Whaletown- where all the lights are out
Whaletown- not much to shout about
Whaletown- You’re going to waste some time here.
Write a fat novel while you wait for the ferry up in Whaletown- what fun!
Or perhaps you can forage for some shrooms and blackberries as you head back home- ho hum.
You can meet a cougar while out walking in the Commons
Or have your mind adjusted by one of our local shamans
A Healing Place
Six weeks in the summertime.
Then the fall rains begin and the people all whine.
In Whaletown-Listening to CBC
Waletown-Beer and a DVD
Whaletown- Your kind of community
Whaletown- Less than it claims to be.
Whaletown- Land of the old Hippie
Whaletown- It’s always 4:20
Whaletown- Your going to waste your life here
