Anyone in Canada during the 1980s who knew what all the top 40 songs were, remembers this song by the OPP cap sportin' rocker, Kim Mitchell.


                      Our house had the biggest patio 
                      Our house had all the summer shade 
                      We had patio lanterns 
                      I'd spend half the night making lemonade 
                      Which we drank a lot 
                      'cause we were all so shy 
                      Shy and nervous 
                      Who was gonna be 
                      Who would be the first to dance 
                      Who was gonna be 
                      Who would be the first to kiss 
                      Under those patio lanterns 
                      Those patio lanterns 
                      They were the stars in the sky 
                      Those patio lanterns 
                      Lighting up our lives 
                      Those patio lanterns 
                      They were the stars in the sky 
                      Those patio lanterns 
                      Lighting up our lives 
                      Oh those patio lanterns 
                      And i was stuck on Joy 
                      (that was her name) 
                      We didn't talk much 
                      She was a nervous girl 
                      I was a nervous boy 
                      We stuck together like glue on glue 
                      Dancing to an old song 
                      Bobby vinton's blue on blue 
                      Heartache on heartache
