Excursion Around The Bay

Well it was on this monday morning

And the day be calm and fine

A harbour grace excursion

With the boys who had the time

And just before the sailor

Took the gangway from the pier

I saw some fellow haul me wife

Aboard as a volunteer


Oh me, oh my, I heard me old wife cry

Oh me, oh my, I think I'm gonna die!

Oh me, oh my, I heard me old wife say,

"I wish I'd never taken this excursion around the bay"

We had fourteen hundred souls aboard, oh what a splendid sight!

Left stong and regimental to make our spirits bright

And meself being in the double, when a funny things they'd say

They choke themselves from laughing when they'd see us in the bay,br>


Me wife she got no better, she turned a sickly green

I fed her cake and candy, fat pork and kerosene

Castor Oil and sugar of candy, I rubbed pure oil on her face

And I said she'll be a dandy when we reaches Harbour Grace!


My wife she got no better, my wife me darling dear

The screeches from her trollear could hear in Carbonear

I tried every place in Harbour Grace,

Tried every store and shop,

To get her something for a cure or take her to the hop


She died below the brandy's as we were coming back

We buried her in the ocean, wrapped up in a Union Jack

So now I am a single man, in search of a pretty face

And the woman that says she'll have me, I'm off for Harbour Grace!,br>
