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 [Chorus] 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 strong 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, [Chorus] 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! [Chorus] 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 [Chorus] 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!
