Comment: Newfie Polka
by Michael T. Wall
 
 
There's A Schooner In The Bay, B'y
Women Makin' Hay, B'y
Havin' Fun Out In The Sun 
In Good Old Newfoundland My Son
 
Chorus:
Romp & Stomp, Gettin' Drunk
Doin' The Newfie Polka
Fish & Brewis, They Like Their Booze
Doin' The Newfie Polka
 
There's Piles of Codfish Dryin'
And The Sound Of Seagulls Cryin'
On Dominion Day We Drink The Best
On Other Days We Fish & Rest
 
REPEAT CHORUS
 
The Bay B'ys They Come Into Town
To Swing Those Towny Girls Around
Join In That Accordion Sound
And Drink Some Good Old Newf Screech Down
 
All In Lace From Harbour Grace
Don't The Girls Look Pretty?
Showin' Off Their Boots & Smocks
Makin' The Boys Act Giddy
 
REPEAT CHORUS
 
Uncle Mose Steps Off The Boat
With Somethin' Hid Beneath His Coat
Though The Season's Closed, One Never Knows
It Could Be A Big Piece Of Moose Meat
 
An All-Night Dance At Come-By-Chance
Makes A Happy Day
And The Boys & Girls Show They Care
In The Good Old Newfie Way
 
REPEAT CHORUS.
