It's the 24th of May and we like to get away,
Up in the woods or going out the bay;
There's all kinds of places, but the place we like to get,
Is up on the highway in the gravel pit.

We love to go out in the good old gravel pits,
We love to go out there when life gets smelly;
We can spray paint our names on the face of the cliffs,
Go up to the Irving for a coke and chips.

We hitches up the camper and out of town we go,
Out on the highway with everything in tow;
The dog is in the back seat, and grandfather's drunk,
The youngsters in the trailer, and the wife is in the trunk.

It's the 24th of May and we like to get away,
Up in the woods or going out the bay;
There's all kinds of places but the place we like to get,
Is up on the highway in the gravel pit.

John is coming over and Sue and Henry, too,
We'll polish off a bottle and a pot of moose stew;
We'll tell a few stories and an awful lot of lies,
Green boughs on the fire to keep away the flies.

The youngsters gets excited and they starts to thump and jump,
But when we piles in the car and goes up to the dump;
It's cheaper than the movie so we all sits and stares,
Up by the garbage pile looking at the bears.

It's the 24th of May and we like to get away,
Up in the woods or going out the bay;
There's all kinds of places but the place we like to get,
Is up on the highway in the gravel pit.

We flies a Newfie flag on an old spruce pole,
And drowns a few worms in a tractor mud hole;
And then listens to the radio, we plays it good and loud,
A scoff on the Coleman stove is bound to draw a crowd.

And when the weekend's over, and we're headed back to town,
A half inch of sloppy snow lying on the ground:
We're a hundred dollars poorer but who wants to be rich?
We just had a lovely time out in the pit.

It's the 24th of May and we like to get away,
Up in the woods or going out the bay;
There's all kinds of places but the place we like to get,
Is up on the highway in the gravel pit.
Is up on the highway in the gravel pit.
