Nova Scotia Dreaming

Based on the song “California Dreamin’.”

Now a YouTube Video sensation!  (We’re not saying exactly which sensation, though…)

It’s all very well wishing to be in a warmer climate…but what if you’re already in a warmer climate?  You may find yourself wishing to be somewhere cooler.  As this record-breaking summer (2011) drags into what we hope are its final stretches, a lot of people find themselves in that situation.

Did you know that when the weather gets hot enough, you can cook food on your car dashboard?

All the grass is brown;
Tempers start to fray
When it hits a hundred
Every single day.

I expect it’s cooler
Up by Fundy Bay:
Nova Scotia dreaming,
On such a summer day.

I see people head
Out to the park to play.
They say, “While the sun is shining,
You have to make your hay.”

When it shines this brightly,
Inside I would stay.
Nova Scotia dreaming,
On such a summer day!

(Inexplicably long musical interlude) 

As I make my plans,
People try to say,
“Winters can be brutal.”
Right now that sounds okay.

But I’m only taking
A thermal holiday.
Nova Scotia dreaming,
On such a summer day…..
