Oh, the snow is piling up,
the wind is blowing cold and hard,
But the lights are up on every tree,
and cheer in every heart;
Sure, the winter is a devil,
but it's Christmas in the land,
For you'll never find a Christmas
like the ones in Newfoundland.

Oh, every house is busy,
'tis the season for the cheer,
They'll be singing and a-dancin'
'round a case or two of beer;
When the squeezebox gets a-playin'
we'll be gathered 'round the stove,
Singing, Merry Christmas to ya
for miles around the cove.

Oh, Christmas time in Newfoundland
is nothing short of grand,
And every year is a Come Home Year
for family and friends;
You may travel 'round the world,
far and wide across the land,
But you'll never find a Christmas
like the ones in Newfoundland.

Oh, you never know what's coming
when the mummers head your way,
As you offer them the good stuff
just to hear them sing and play;
When the merriment is over,
one and all bid you goodbye,
Singing, Merry Christmas,
hope to see ya all tomorrow night.

By Boxing Day you're ready
for another spurt of fun,
As the band begins a-playin'
Simani's The Mummers Song;
And in they come like dibbles
dancin' 'round the crowded floor,
'Tis the very same old dibbles
that ya saw the night before.

Oh, Christmas time in Newfoundland
is nothing short of grand,
And every year is a Come Home Year
for family and friends;
You may travel 'round the world,
far and wide across the land,
But you'll never find a Christmas
like the ones in Newfoundland.

Oh, Christmas time in Newfoundland
is nothing short of grand,
And every year is a Come Home Year
for family and friends;
You may travel 'round the world,
far and wide across the land,
But you'll never find a Christmas
like the ones in Newfoundland.
You'll never see a Christmas
like the ones in Newfoundland.
