I'm going home to Newfie,
I'm gonna find me a bride;
Someone who's not too skinny,
Someone that's not too wide.

I knew Aunt Mable would die,
If I were to ask for her hand;
Only place in the world
you can marry a Newfie girl,
Is back home in dear old Newfoundland.

Kissing cousins, maple syrup,
I knew Uncle John would have a fit;
Her lovely pancakes were so pleasing,
And her maple syrup always made good dip.

Now, Jimmy married Johnny's sister Jinny,
Somehow we didn't see it as being right;
'Cause Johnny and Jimmy were brothers,
And Jinny had found her Mister Right.

Now, Granny and Jimmy went out fishing,
They didn't catch any trout;
But Jimmy's eyes are all crossed over,
Granny must have given him an awful clout.

Kissing cousins, maple syrup,
I knew Uncle John would have a fit;
Her lovely pancakes were so pleasing,
And her maple syrup always made good dip.

I do remember Aunt Mable,
She was always getting fresh;
While Uncle John was gone out to sea,
Aunt Mable was catching all the fish.

Aunt Mable always had nice buns,
They were always nice and warm;
When she took them out of the oven,
Around her door was a swarm.

Of kissing cousins, maple syrup,
I knew Uncle John would have a fit;
Her lovely pancakes were so pleasing,
And her maple syrup always made good dip.

Yes, kissing cousins, maple syrup,
I knew Uncle John would have a fit;
Her lovely pancakes were so pleasing,
And her maple syrup always made good dip.
Yes, her maple syrup always made good dip.
