Over in Teddy's barn,
Sittin' around and havin' a yarn;
Singin' up a storm till the early morn,
Over in Teddy's barn.
Ice fog rolls in when you open the door,
With cans of beer frozen on the floor;
It's forty below outside the door,
Over at Teddy's barn.

The place is heated by a propane stove,
Turned up on bust, but it's still damn cold;
But on Saturday night the place is full,
Over in Teddy's barn.
People would come from miles around,
Just to hear that East Coast sound;
Joinin' in and singin' along,
Over in Teddy's barn.

When you had to go to the washroom, you know,
You go outside at forty below,
Just to sign your name in the snow,
All around Teddy's barn.
The following day the sun would shine,
And the neighbours would come and stand in line,
Just to see who played that night,
Over in Teddy's barn.

Over in Teddy's barn,
Sittin' around and havin' a yarn;
Singin' up a storm till the early morn,
Over in Teddy's barn.
Ice fog rolls in when you open the door,
With cans of beer frozen on the floor;
It's forty below outside the door,
Over in Teddy's barn.

Chris and Freddie play all the songs,
And all the people sing along;
Les keeps beatin' his ugly stick,
Over in Teddy's barn.
Phil and Randy play on the spoons,
And Teddy joins in on all the tunes;
And Johnny tells us all the jokes,
Over in Teddy's barn.

If you're in town and it's forty below,
It's Saturday night and no place to go,
You can always count on the East Coast sound,
Over in Teddy's barn.
But make sure before you go,
You leave your mark upon the snow,
Just to let the neighbours know,
You were at Teddy's barn.

Over in Teddy's barn,
Sittin' around and havin' a yarn;
Singin' up a storm till the early morn,
Over in Teddy's barn.
Ice fog rolls in when you open the door,
With cans of beer frozen on the floor;
It's forty below outside the door,
Over in Teddy's barn.
