Lyrics
The Night They Invented Poutine
The night they invented poutine Nothing was the way it had been
Jeanette Renault was shy and thin The Nordics began to win
Jacques Pariseau sang God Save the Queen
The night they invented poutine It was the most peculiar scene
Hans Marotte put up an English sign Baby duck tasted like wine
The water in Ben Johnson was clean The night they invented poutine
The night they invented poutine Eddie Murphy said something clean
Torontonians moved to Montreal The Expo's actually hit the ball
Jill Gregoire's date was over 14
The night they invented poutine The night they invented poutine
No one knows the precise origin Where or when this food did begin
Everybody in Quebec will tell you where the grin
It was their little village that invented the poutine
To be really authentic the potatoes must be old The gravy must be hot
And the cheese must be cold With the journaux, the moire, wherever it is sold
And served with a roll in a bowl by a troll
You put some potatoes and some cheese in a tin But the cheese won't melt till you put the gravy in
Then it sticks to your fork and it dribbles down your chin
And that's how you know when you're eating a poutine
If the French fries are greasy and the gravy's nice and hot
The cheese curds lengthen as they come out of the pot
Then cool in your stomach and congeal it to a knot
If your food does that then poutine is what you've got
Your Cart
