Explorers searched around the Pole and found no trace of Santa,
He used to live there long ago, now that's the truth, I'll grant you;
Oh, listen to my story, dears, and you will understand,
Why Santa packed his big red sleigh and moved to Newfoundland.

La la la la la la la la la la la la.

One day the reindeer said they wouldn't land in foggy weather,
"We must have visibility for a hundred feet or better;
We fly just like Air Canada, in fog we cannot land."
And Santa said, "That does it, deers, let's move to Newfoundland.

La la la la la la la la la la la la.

"There's no one in the world can fly quite like a Newfoundlander,
He'll spot an airport through the fog when you can't see your finger.
We'll move our winter quarters down just north of Logy Bay,
And when the weather's foggy, deers, we'll follow EPA."

La la la la la la la la la la la la.

Santa Claus is alive and well and he's now a Newfoundlander,
On Christmas eve he rings his bells and his plane takes off from Gander;
Through snow and fog the reindeers jog behind that Boeing jet,
He makes his way by EPA, ain't missed a landing yet.

La la la la la la la la la la la la.

Oh, you may think my story, dears, is just some Newfie jokin',
But Christmas Eve the reindeer keep their shiny noses pokin'
Into that jet of nice, warm air across the midnight sky,
While Santa smiles and says, "Ho Ho," and whistles I'se The B'y.

La la la la la la la la la la la la.

Santa Claus is alive and well and he's now a Newfoundlander,
On Christmas eve he rings his bells and his plane takes off from Gander;
Through snow and fog the reindeers jog behind that Boeing jet,
He makes his way by EPA, ain't missed a landing yet.

La la la la la la la la la la la la.

La la la la la la la la la la la la la la,
La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la;
La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la,
La la la la la la la la la la la la la la,
La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la.
