When Sunday comes 'round
and you're feeling blue,
Down on your luck with nothing to do,
Up to the valley is where you should go,
Enjoy the music of the Newfie Show.

From three until six, the music is low,
Enjoyed by all, the young and the old;
Too many to name but I'll mention a few,
The Chignic Lodge is the place for you.

There's Margie and Mildred, Swiffy and Dan,
Russell and Wesley, it's Rita Melcan;
There's Ernie and Lori, Kay and Paul,
Out on the floor they're having a ball.

From early spring till late up in the fall,
Sundays at Chignic's is loved by all;
When your show is over, you won't forget,
Where no one's a stranger,
just friends you haven't met.

There's Illick and Rosie, Shirley and Elvis,
If'n they're down, they're tryin' to kill us;
There's Sadie and Fittin, Harvey and Jean,
Doing a dance like you never seen.
Come to the Chignic, you'll see what I mean.
