Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha,
Boys, and did you hear dis one?
Three guys on the west coast
went poaching a moose,
There was one in a transport truck,
two in the woods;
And when the coast was all clear,
John would make the horn wail,
And the boys would lug out the meat.

The plan went so smoothly, not one single nick,
Till an officer came by, did a vehicle check;
He asked John to try out his transport truck horn,
Oop! And the boys lugged out the meat.

Ha!
There are thousands and thousands
and thousands of stories,
Good ones and bad ones
and true ones and sad ones;
All kinds of people who can spin you a yarn,
If you give them the time of day.

Ha, ha, ha! Yous sure do know.
A Clarenville man went to haul out some wood,
But the bog in December
wasn't froze all that good;
And while crossing, his pony
went down to her gut,
And it looked like there she would stay.

They both struggled fiercely
to fight the bog's grip,
But the horse gave up quickly
despite shouts and whips;
And there was only one thing
that poor Skipper could do,
With his axe he would now end her pain.

But, while having a smoke
he was struck with a thought,
And with a flick of his lighter
the horse's ears caught;
And he pulled on the reins
and she struggled with fright,
And was saved from a cold boggy grave.

Yous!
There are thousands and thousands
and thousands of stories,
Good ones and bad ones
and true ones and sad ones;
All kinds of people who can spin you a yarn,
If you give them the time of day.

Ha... Ha...
Now my last little story you might find okay,
Concerns mom and her troubles
on son's wedding day;
She arose in the morning and to her dismay,
She searched but she couldn't find 'er teeth.

Without 'er front dentures
what a rough looking sight,
And as the hour grew closer
she became more uptight;
We searched and we searched and we finally found,
The dog had 'em buried in the ground.

Ha!
There are thousands and thousands
and thousands of stories,
Good ones and bad ones
and true ones and sad ones;
All kinds of people who can spin you a yarn,
If you give them the time of day.
If you give them the time of day.
