Let the mummers in, Ma,
let the mummers in,
It's Christmas time in Newfoundland
so let the mummers in.

There's five of them at the door, Ma,
'cordion and a fiddle,
I don't know who they are, Ma,
it's kind of a Christmas riddle.

So let the mummers in, Ma,
let the mummers in,
Christmas comes but once a year,
so let the mummers in.

Ma says come on in, boys,
don't ever lift your masks,
Just wipe your feet on the mat, boys,
that's all that mother asks;
Get out the cake and syrup, Ma,
and the rabbit stew,
Open up a bottle of screech,
and a keg of me home brew.

Let the mummers in, Ma,
let the mummers in,
Christmas comes but once a year,
so let the mummers in.

I know it's you, Al Penney,
although you wear that wig,
Keep the strap off your 'cordion
and play us a little jig.

Let the mummers in, Ma,
let the mummers in,
We got till old Christmas Day,
so let the mummers in.
