Nancy (The Navigators)

Good evening, ladies and gentlemen,
how are you all today?
I see that some are seated,
and the band is here to play;
Go grab yourself a great big glass
of whatever fills your fancy,
And I'll tell you all a wonderful tale
of a girl who's known as Nancy.

She's known as Nancy,
she's young and wild and free.
She's known as Nancy,
and she wants you all to see;
She's known as Nancy, Oh Nancy,
Won't you come and dance with me?

Straight from down the Northwest Coast
she came a year ago,
She settled here in St John's town
in the blinding sleet and snow;
Then one night she rolled downtown
with a fella Clancy,
And everyone that was in the bar
they knew her name was Nancy.

She's known as Nancy,
she's young and wild and free.
She's known as Nancy,
and she wants you all to see;
She's known as Nancy, Oh Nancy,
Won't you come and dance with me?

'Round and 'round the floor she went,
with her partner they did fly,
And when we got down to the reel
she acted oh so shy;
Her partner raced across the floor
and began to sing a shanty,
It was a song about a wonderful girl
and her name was known as Nancy.

She's known as Nancy,
she's young and wild and free.
She's known as Nancy,
and she wants you all to see;
She's known as Nancy, Oh Nancy,
Won't you come and dance with me?
