Thread Name: Lyr Add: Fisherman's Wharf (Stan Rogers)
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Fisherman's Wharf (Stan Rogers)
I have listened closely to Stan Rogers' Fisherman's Wharf many times and have yet to hear the words "Upper Canadian". This seems to be simply copied from bot transcriptions from other websites. He sings very clearly, but I keep hearing "Perkin Eek" (perkinique?) or such "made of concrete and glass" and NOT anything even CLOSE to "Upper Canadian"! Anybody have the ear of Mr. Rogers who could ask him for the phrase - and its meaning? I keep thinking that it is the name of a ship - or perhaps a commercial development... And I LOVE that song!!!
