"The Royal Canadian Legion is not known for being trendy, but they do hire a lot of bands. I was in one of them thinking, 'somebody should write a song about this.' Fittingly, it's the kind of song you might hear in a Legion."

Lyrics

Back in the Legion © Bruce Wozny 1991

While young men play pool in the hot smoky air
young girls load the jukebox and play with their hair
and another old soldier is out on a tear
Hey, I'm back in the Legion again.

The walls painted white are nicotine brown
and the draft beer is cold, it's the cheapest in town
and the boss tells the band to please turn it down
Hey, I'm back in the Legion again.

I'm back in the legion on a Saturday night
with hockey on T.V. and fluorescent light
so take off that hat if you don't want to fight
and have you bought your ticket for the meat draw tonight?

Wool cardigan sweaters all over the place
old rifles lie sleeping in a glass display case
and the softball team won, now they're in second place
Hey, I'm back in the Legion again.

I'm back in the legion on a Saturday night
with hockey on T.V. and fluorescent light
so take off that hat if you don't want to fight
and have you bought your ticket for the meat draw tonight?

The dance floor is empty, but it won't be for long
'cause Blue Spanish Eyes is their favourite song
then it's last call and closing time, please move along
then it's out in the street and it's home before dawn
Hey, I'm back in the Legion again.
Hey, I'm back in the Legion again.
