See the tower, tall and beautiful
Like a thimble on a sharp pencil
People know of you no matter where I go
Your reputation is international
See the tower, see the tower

Helicopters buzzing 'round your tip
You were built in 1976
Though you're not the tallest building in the world
You're still a modern wonder for the boys and girls
See the tower, see the tower

Looking out over Lake Ontario
Do you wonder where the decades go?
It's a jagged pill to swallow, yo
But you, you, you, you, you

Tiny Tim once had a concert there
His ukulele and his wavy hair
He played Tiptoe Through the Tulips too
Just another day in the life for you
See the tower, see the tower

My pal Richard, he had a good friend
Worked at the tower in the 80s and
He got fired for joyriding on the roof
Of the elevator, what a goof

Made of concrete with a hollow shaft
They drop pumpkins just to see them smash
I went on a date there so long ago
And she never ever ever ever ever let me go

You cost millions so Canadians
Could look out at their home on native land
Rockets played cowboys and Indians
Not being taught about colonialism
See the tower, see the tower

Any questions, you can ask the mayor
If they're banning a band or having an affair
Selling furniture, forging contracts
Or getting videotaped while they're smoking crack

You light up the city sky at night
Giving comfort with your laser light
Is that King Kong climbing to the top?
Will the tower song ever ever ever ever stop?

Private parties on your upper deck
Looking at you is a pain in the deck
I can see you from my windowsill
I adored you, I adore you still
