Double Daylight

Uncle Tom's cabin used to glow in the dark
But he gave her a shove right over the wharf
Don't need her now, boys, Uncle Tom said
Since our new daylight savings scheme's been brought in

Who thought it up, boys, God love his heart
'Tis wonderful now since our summer's so short
With twice as much sunshine, oh, Lord bless his soul
I 'low we'll be burned up as black as the coal

Double your pleasure, double your fun
For half of the year we'll have double the sun

The man from U.I. was scratching his head
Getting some funny letters here lately he said
Like if I had enough of double daylight punched in
Do you think that me five weeks could pass off for ten

Me grandfather's just about 90 years old
He can't semm to see what is happening you know
All of his life he's been up at the crack of dawn
Now dawn don't crack 'til the day's almost gone

A frisky young fellow who lives up the bay
He now hauls his lobster pots twice every day
He's got plenty of time when his fishing is through
To burn up some pork chops on his gas barbeque

Double your pleasure, double your fun
For half of the year we'll have double the sun

Some say it's bad while others say it's good
Saving on kerosene, some shocking on wood
And mothers who can't get their youngsters to bed
Can't sleep "cause they've got too much light in their head

But supposed that we lived where the sun never sets
Where half of the year the lamp's never lit
So like the eskimos living up north
You pull down your blinds and your igloo goes dark

Double your pleasure, double your fun
For half of the year we'll have double the sun
With double the daylight we'll double the fun
