Ha Ha Tonka

I asked earlier about song meaning... how about St. Nick? It's my favorite. :)

Well, song meanings aren't always easy to explain. With this tune, we tried to combine a few themes. The 4th of July is during the summer. So are canoe trips. On some level, this song deals with the dangers associated with wishful thinking. On another level, it alludes to the dangers of nationalistic tendencies and overly fervent true believer-ism. And on a completely different level, it's about a carefree, idyllic adolescent float trip on the North Fork River.
