There's a party down at the Harbour Lounge,
They've got the country band;
There's Uncle Sam and he's wanting to know,
If they got an accordion man.

You can play it low on an old banjo,
Pick it on a mandolin;
An old fashioned waltz will fill the floor,
When you put the squeezebox in.

You can tap your toes, you can sing along,
Everyone clap their hands;
But if you're going to have a band in Newfoundland,
You've got to have accordion man.

When the lights are low it's party time,
The whole place starts to rock;
The dance floor she just comes alive,
To the music of an old squeeze box.

Aunt Mary she's down planking her down,
Keeping it close to the floor;
The accordion man is driving her wild,
And the crowd all hollers for more.

You can tap your toes, you can sing along,
Everyone clap their hands;
But if you're going to have a band in Newfoundland,
You've got to have accordion man.

When the party's over it's closin' time,
But the band just to please,
Will play one more and it's over for sure,
And the crowd all hollers with glee.

The kind of music we all love,
And everyone understands:
If you're going to have a band in Newfoundland,
You've got to have accordion man.

You can play it low on an old banjo,
Pick it on a mandolin;
An old-fashioned waltz will fill the floor,
When you put the squeezebox in.

If you're going to have a band in Newfoundland,
You've got to have accordion man.
