There's a party down at the Harbour Lounge,
They got a country band,
There's Uncle Sam and he's wanting to know,
If they got an accordion man;
You can play it low on the old banjo,
Pick it on a mandolin,
An old fashion waltz could fill the floor,
When they put the squeezebox in.

You can tap your toes, you can sing along,
Everyone clap their hands;
If you're gonna have a band in Newfoundland,
You gotta have an accordion man.

When the lights are low, it's party time,
Old place starts to rock,
The dance floor she just comes to life,
To the music of an old squeeze box;
Aunt Mary she's out there planking her down,
Leaving it close to the floor,
The accordion man he's just driving them wild,
And the crowd all hollers for more.

You can tap your toes, you can sing along,
Everyone clap their hands;
If you're gonna have a band in Newfoundland,
You gotta have an accordion man.

When the party's over, it's closing time,
Your band, just to please,
Will play one more, then it's over for sure,
And everyone hollers with glee;
It's a kind of music we all love,
And everyone understands,
If you're gonna have a band in Newfoundland,
You gotta have an accordion man.

You can play it low on the old banjo,
Pick it on a mandolin,
An old fashion waltz could fill the floor,
When they put the squeezebox in.

You can tap your toes, you can sing along,
Everyone clap their hands;
If you're gonna have a band in Newfoundland,
You gotta have an accordion man.

If you're gonna have a band in Newfoundland,
You gotta have an.... accordion man.
