The Newfie Clock-Winder

A Newfie clock-winder, to Dublin he came
Sylvester Snooks was the old Newfie's name
And as he was crossin' his way 'cross the Strand
He played on his squeeze-box and his music was grand

Ah, me, too-ra lum-ma lum-ma, too-ra lum-ma lum-ma
too-ra lie-ay, too-ra-lie-oo-ra-lie-oo-ra-lie-ay
too-ra lum-ma lum-ma, too-ra lum-ma lum-ma
too-ra lie-ay, too-ra-lie-oo-ra-lie-oo-ra-lie-ay

A woman came out in Fitzwilliam's Square
She said her old clock was in need of repair
She invited him in and to her delight
In less than five minutes, sure he had her clock right

Ah, me, too-ra lum-ma lum-ma, too-ra lum-ma lum-ma
too-ra lie-ay, too-ra-lie-oo-ra-lie-oo-ra-lie-ay
too-ra lum-ma lum-ma, too-ra lum-ma lum-ma
too-ra lie-ay, too-ra-lie-oo-ra-lie-oo-ra-lie-ay

They sat down together, takin' in stock
When all of a sudeen there came a loud knock (knock...knock)
In came her husband and oh what a shock
To see the old Newfie wind up his wife's clock

Ah, me, too-ra lum-ma lum-ma, too-ra lum-ma lum-ma
too-ra lie-ay, too-ra-lie-oo-ra-lie-oo-ra-lie-ay
too-ra lum-ma lum-ma, too-ra lum-ma lum-ma
too-ra lie-ay, too-ra-lie-oo-ra-lie-oo-ra-lie-ay

Oh, wife Marianne, wife Marianne
Why did you take in such an innocent man
To wind up the clock and leave me on the shelf
If yer old clock needs windin', sure, I'll wind it meself

Ah, me, too-ra lum-ma lum-ma, too-ra lum-ma lum-ma
too-ra lie-ay, too-ra-lie-oo-ra-lie-oo-ra-lie-ay
too-ra lum-ma lum-ma, too-ra lum-ma lum-ma
too-ra lie-ay, too-ra-lie-oo-ra-lie-oo-ra-lie-ay

Ah, me, too-ra lum-ma lum-ma, too-ra lum-ma lum-ma
too-ra lie-ay, too-ra-lie-oo-ra-lie-oo-ra-lie-ay
too-ra lum-ma lum-ma, too-ra lum-ma lum-ma
too-ra lie-ay, too-ra-lie-oo-ra-lie-oo-ra-lie-ay

Ah, me, too-ra lum-ma lum-ma, too-ra lum-ma lum-ma
too-ra lie-ay, too-ra-lie-oo-ra-lie-oo-ra-lie-ay
too-ra lum-ma lum-ma, too-ra lum-ma lum-ma
too-ra lie-ay, too-ra-lie-oo-ra-lie-oo-ra-lie-ay
