Fifty-Mission Cap Lyrics

Artist: The Tragically Hip
Album: Fully Completely

bill barilko disappeared that summer, he was on a fishing trip the last goal he ever scored won the leafs the cup they didn't win
another until 1962, the year he was discovered i stole this from a hockey card, i keep tucked up under my fifty mission cap, i
worked it in i worked it in to look like that it's my fifty mission cap and i worked it in, i worked it in, and i worked it in, to look
like that and i worked it in, to look like that

bill barilko disappeared that summer, he was on a fishing trip the last goal he ever scored won the leafs the cup they didn't win
another until 1962, the year he was discovered my fifty mission cap, i worked it in i worked it in to look like that it's my fifty
mission cap and i worked it in, i worked it in, and i worked it in, to look like that and i worked it in, to look like that it's my fifty
mission cap it's my fifty mission cap it's my fifty mission cap it's my fifty mission cap

is 50 mission cap a reference to catch 22?
by JFWank on 9/10/2009 3:59pm
no 50 mission cap is a reference to the caps they give pilots for doing 50 missions

hard to knock this song or the lyrics. its a true story. pretty crazy story, just wiki bill barilko. i admit to occassional chills when i play this song too. fifty mission cap could also be reference to the 50 game NHL season back then too.
by ChuckFitz on 2/17/2010 2:06pm
Great Song! To Anyone who disagrees with that, you can go to hell. And It is not a reference to the number of games the NHL played, the lyrics say "tucked up under my fifty mission cap" obviously refering to a type of headwear.

Bill Barilko went fishing with his buddy up by Cochrane.
by Unashamed leaf fan on 3/19/2011 6:22pm
You are all missing that the writer of the song didn't need a hockey card... He's related to Bill Barilko so I doubt Gord needed to track down the history.

The 50 mission cap is actually referring a the hats worn by US Officers during World War 2
by ted on 10/22/2011 6:49pm
during WW2 allied bomber raids on germany, Young men 18 to 24 years old were lucky to survive 10 missions. A rare thing to see around a mission briefing room was a man with a peek cap that was faded and worn, most officers had fresh uniforms. Thus a man that walked into a briefing room that was nearing fifty missions had seen a lot. American pilots with a fifty mission cap were usually sent back to the states if they wanted to go. This summer a group of fans raised some money and recovered the aircraft wreck that had been there for 60 years and 49 years since the remains of Bill and the pilot were discovered, The last goal he ever scored won the leafs the cup, they wouldnt win again until the year he was discovered ! spooky canadian history

If it wasnt for you
No one who really owuldnt know what hockey means

The hip.. are the best


No one would no what hockey was if it wasn't for Bill Barilko?

A) No
B) Learn to spell.

Great song; but Bill is not responsible for the success of hockey...dumbass.

Yane and Jimmy. EAT s--t
by md on 3/26/2012 8:01pm
Hey, Mike: don't alk about spelling, asshole. You spelled "know" as "no".
Dumb-ass moron.
