Thanks for being born, kaffyr .

I wrote these lyrics about a week after we moved in together. Seems like a fine time to let them out for some fresh air.

Canadian Lady, she treats me real nice;
When I want some lovin', I need not ask twice.
If she were a painting, it would be worth any price,
Just to see her.

The Nova Scotia climate grows 'em strong, grows 'em smart;
It puts steel in their bodies, it puts heat in their hearts.
If I were to lose her, I would tear the world apart,
Just to find her

There is beauty in this world, there is truth, there is light;
There's the sun in the morning, there are stars in the night.
And I have them all, for they're all locked up tight,
In my
Canadian Lady

Daughter of the rockbound coast, sister of the waves,
When she's standing beside me it's easy to be brave.
When I come home bruised and battered,
She's the sustenance I crave,
I find peace,
I find release,
With my
Canadian Lady

Any resemblance to a red-headed Canuck I often refer to as Moncton is an understatement.

Canadian lady
I've always been fond of this song, and am also very glad that "kaffyr" is in this earth, walking this planet, in our lives. Happy birthday, kaffyr! And maybe I'll see either and/or both of you sometime soon. I hope.
