Good Ole Newfie Time (Double-Minor)

Almost forty hours in,
And it's Friday once again;
Soon be time to leave this work behind.
When the clock strikes four,
I'll be goin through the door,
Gettin' ready for a good ole Newfie time.

As soon as I get home,
The wife's there on the phone,
Callin' everybody that we know.
Frank and Marge there up the road,
And Elsie down the cove,
I'm sure they all be here by nine.

Come on in, close the door,
Lay your boots there on the floor;
Step inside and see who is here.
Get your guitar out, my friend,
Johnny's got the mandolin;
We're gonna have a good ole Newfie time.

The party's just beginning,
I can see poor Johnny grinning;
He's sitting there just dying to pick a tune.
Rudy got the squeezebox out,
Let's get ready for a shout;
'Cause we're gonna have a Newfie scuff tonight.

Pass your partner to and fro,
Step it out now as you go;
Keep the beat to the St Ann's Reel.
Elsie's dancing up a storm,
Frankie's socks are nearly worn;
Move the table, the whole crowd is on the floor.

Come on in, close the door,
Lay your boots there on the floor;
Step inside and see who is here.
Get your guitar out, my friend,
Johnny's got the mandolin;
We're gonna have a good ole Newfie time.

Have a drink and sing a song,
'Cause we're partying till dawn;
The kids are with the sitter for the night.
As Eli and Maloney
Sing a song about baloney,
I wonder who will have that dream tonight.

After a two-step and a jig,
We all sing Reggie's Rig;
And we notice people passing out like flies.
With only four or five awake,
We look out across the lake,
To tell a couple stories and some lies.

Come on in, close the door,
Lay your boots there on the floor;
Step inside and see who is here.
Get your guitar out, my friend,
Johnny's got the mandolin;
We're gonna have a good ole Newfie time.

You came on in and closed the door,
You layed your boots there on the floor;
Then stepped inside and saw who was here.
Took your guitar out, my friend,
Johnny played the mandolin;
My son, we had a good ole Newfie time.
We had ourselves a good ole Newfie time
