Recorded at the Soundmill, North Wiltshire PEI. Engineered by Jon Matthews.

lyrics

Losing my job was a bad sensation
I thought that I could use a good vacation
found a place where all the girls go
now I'm drawing top stamp, and they love me so

You bring the bottle, I'll bring the hoots
you can kick off your shoes but keep on your boots
'cause looking for work is a full time job, kids
ask anyone, ask premier Rob Ghiz

Pogey Beach, everybody loves you
Pogey Beach, everybody goes
Pogey Beach, gimme the money and set me free
on Pogey Beach

I've been to Cavendish, Brackley and Keppoch
Basin Head ain't nowhere as epic
as this one place on Prince Edward Island
takes five weeks, you better start filin'

Pogey Beach, everybody loves you
Pogey Beach, everybody goes
Pogey Beach, gimme the money and set me free
on Pogey Beach
