Lyrics

Red hair, green eyes, shier than a first sung song
She wants 10 dogs and to raise some bees
She’s my Hudson girl


Her dad worked for an airline based out of Montreal
The company moved down to Toronto
So did my Hudson girl


They left Christmas of ’84; she had only turned 13
Her sister cried all the way to Etobicoke
So did my Hudson Girl


Merci loi cent une et la charte de la langue francais
I was lonely in Ontari-ario ‘til you sent her my way
Bill 101 down the 401
Brought me my Hudson girl


She was born on a Saints’ Day, Francis of Assisi
That’s why she wants 10 dogs and bees -
Least that’s what she tells me


She made a wish for the honeybee; she threw a penny in a well
I made a wish not to leave this world before my Hudson girl


When I asked her to marry me: ‘Marry me, my Hudson girl!’
She said: ‘Only if you take me back, take me back to Lake Of Two Mountains!’
We paid Rev. Kervin with a case of beer
Me and my Hudson girl


All my brothers on the outskirts; all you lonely guys
Take my word find a Hudson girl
You’ll never love another exile
Take my word find a Hudson girl
You’ll never love a better exile


Merci loi cent une et la charte de la langue francais
I was lonely in Ontari-ario ‘til you sent her my way
Bill 101 down the 401
Brought me my Hudson girl
She’s a Quebecker, not a Quebecois
She’s my Hudson Girl.
She cheers for The Leafs ‘til they play The Habs
She’s my Hudson girl
Bill 101 down the 401
Brought me my Hudson girl
