lyrics

It’s Friday night you worked all week your fingers to the bone
With the smell of diesel fuel the number 26 leads home
The bus is full of drywall dust as it plows through dirty snow
Stan Rogers on your headphones just another working Joe

But it’s alright, it’s O.K it’s the end of your working day
But it’s alright, it’s O.K we’ve all got our bills to pay
So it’s Perry’s Pub, it’s Friday night, we’ll drink we’ll drink away the night
Jukebox playing outlaw songs, this is the place that we belong
Whoa oh oh we’re Dover boys

Your wife she up and left you oh so many years ago
Moved backed to Saskatchewan with your kids in tow
It’s half of your wages to her that you owe
This is the plight, this is the fight of the average working Joe

But it’s alright, it’s O.K we’ve all got our bills to pay
So it’s Perry’s Pub, it’s Friday night, we’ll drink we’ll drink away the night
Jukebox playing outlaw songs, this is the place that we belong
Whoa oh oh we’re Dover boys

We’re Dover Boys, we take no shit
We stick together deal with it
Bloody knuckles and dirty jeans
Lessons learned and places seen
Work all week for Friday night
This is our world this is our plight
Coked out waitresses and Kokanee’s
Heaven on earth or so it seems
Whoa oh oh we’re Dover Boys
What are we?
Whoa oh oh we’re Dover Boys
