We'll have a good old Newfie Christmas alright,
And we won't go home until we're all half tight;
Well, there'll be moonshine and home brew,
Newfie screech and Black Horse, too,
A good old Newfie Christmas alright.

Well, John will start with the lead guitar,
and Wolfie on the drums,
Keith will join in with the bass
and I'll just strum along;
Donny will play the squeezebox,
the fiddle and mandolin;
We'll drink and play till the break of day,
and then we'll start again.

We'll have a good old Newfie Christmas alright,
Well, we won't go home until we're all half tight;
There'll be moonshine and home brew,
Newfie screech and Black Horse, too,
A good old Newfie Christmas alright.

[Alright, Donny!]

[Oh, yeah, Donny!] [And here's Johnny!]

What a pot of stew's upon the stove,
and a turkey on the table;
We'll drink and eat and dance
and sing until we are unable;
When everyone has had his fill
we'll walk out through door,
And when the next day rolls around,
we'll swear we'll drink no more.

We'll have a good old Newfie Christmas alright,
Well, we won't be home until we're all half tight;
There'll be moonshine and home brew,
Newfie screech and Black Horse, too,
A good old Newfie Christmas alright.

We'll have a good old Newfie Christmas alright,
And we won't go home until we're all half tight;
There'll be moonshine and home brew,
Newfie screech and Black Horse, too,
A good old Newfie Christmas alright.
Yes, a good old Newfie Christmas alright.
