Cold snaps and earthquakes,volcanic eruptions,
Bear in the back yard, Veco corruption,
Fat checks from the government that make our hearts sing
These are peculiar A-las-ka things.
Softball at midnight,
Winter moon at mid morning,
Alaska's the frontier of global warming
The dead hand of government we're fond of bewalin'
But we got our revenge, it's governor Palin!
Where the dog bites
Where the cold stings
But the air is clear,
So clear that from many a village and town, you can see Canada from here!
