Mummers Night in Oshawa

The boys they left their Newfoundland and went to Oshawa
Got a job and settled down, in no time at all
The second Xmas off the rock, they miss the folks back home
They'd keep up their tradition, so they wouldn't feel alone

Edna was from Oshawa, and lived there all her life
When she married John, she became a Newfies wife
She never heard of mummering or tasted fish and and brews
She never thought tonight, they'd all be on the news

Chorus 1
Mummers night in Oshawa, it was quite a show
It was on the televison &, the radio
The boys were just a having fun & you can safely bet
The Mummers night in Oshawa, was night they won't forget
The Mummers night in Oshawa, a night they won't forget

John was at the Newfie bar, drinking with the boys
Playing darts and shooting pool, telling each other lies
He was the instigator of the mummers plot
They tried it out on Edna, & she nearly got them shot

Tom was dressed up as his wife, & Charlie dressed as him
Fred the plumber dressed up, as a fisherman
With their faces covered they were such a scary site
When they knocked upon the door, Edna screamed with fright

Chorus 1
Mummers night in Oshawa, it was quite a show
It was on the televison &, the radio
The boys were just a having fun & you can safely bet
The Mummers night in Oshawa, was night they won't forget
The Mummers night in Oshawa, a night they won't forget

Someone in the neighbourhood, musta called the cops
They threw the boys upon the ground & put em in the cuffs
Flashing Lights, guns drawn, sirens filled the air
Explaining bout the mummers, didn't get them anywhere

The judge was in the Xmas spirit, so he let them go
The boys they left and John went home, his head was hanging low
When Edna met him at the door, She said oh what a night
Now I like your mummering, but didn't need the fright

Chorus 2
Mummers night in Oshawa, it was quite a show
Dressing up in scary clothes, how were the boys to know
Tossed into a paddy wagon, John and all his friends
Mummers night in Oshawa, they're locked up in the pen

Mummers Night in Oshawa, locked up in the pen
