    You say you’re not from Mowich
    Man as if we couldn’t tell
    You think you pull your boots on right
    And wear your hat so well

    So pardon us our laughter
    ‘Cause we sure do understand
    Even Moses got excited
    When he saw the promised land

    That’s right you’re not from Mowich
    That’s right you’re not from Mowich
    That’s right you’re not from Mowich
    But Mowich wants you anyway

    That’s right you’re not from Mowich
    That’s right you’re not from Mowich
    That’s right you’re not from Mowich
    But Mowich wants you anyway

    See we backpacked in Manning to Mowich
    And we loved to trip so well
    We hiked the paths of Skyline One
    Trying to find the antidote to hell

    And as we trekked to Mowat Camp
    The bugs they found our scent
    Companionship was all we had
    As Mister UltraLight pitched his 1-pound tent

    We said that’s right you’re not from Mowich
    That’s right you’re not from Mowich
    That’s right you’re not from Mowich
    But Mowich wants you anyway

    That’s right you’re not from Mowich
    That’s right you’re not from Mowich
    That’s right you’re not from Mowich
    But Mowich wants you anyway

    Oh the trail it looked lovely
    As we tramped the hills and valley
    The wildflowers in bloom so late
    Hoping the blueberries would rally

    Those boys from North Shore hikers
    They sure enough could sing
    But when they came on down to Mowich
    We women showed them how to swing

    Now to make a fire is illegal
    And all parks have a fee
    But Mary won’t pay the fire fine
    And the campground comes for free

    That’s right you’re not from Mowich
    That’s right you’re not from Mowich
    That’s right you’re not from Mowich
    But Mowich wants you anyway

    That’s right you’re not from Mowich
    That’s right you’re not from Mowich
    That’s right you’re not from Mowich
    But Mowich wants you anyway

    North Shore Hikers are OK in day hikes
    Up over night they’re not so sure
    Us old folks down in Manning
    Don’t even know if the water’s pure

    But around the fire in Mowich
    That’s the finest place to be
    The women they all look beautiful
    And Helen’s brandy is for free

    And they’ll say that’s right you’re not from Mowich
    That’s right you’re not from Mowich
    That’s right you’re not from Mowich
    But Mowich wants you anyway

    That’s right you’re not from Mowich
    That’s right you’re not from Mowich
    That’s right you’re not from Mowich
    But Mowich wants you anyway

    So won’t you let us help you Mister
    Just pull your hat down the way we do
    And buy your shorts just a little longer
    And next time somebody laughs at you

    You just tell ’em you’re not from Mowich
    That’s right you’re not from Mowich
    That’s right you’re not from Mowich
    But Mowich wants you anyway

    That’s right you’re not from Mowich
    That’s right you’re not from Mowich
    That’s right you’re not from Mowich
    But Mowich wants you anyway
