man moon newfie lyrics – stompin’ tom connors

you might think it’s goofy, but the man in the moon is a newfie
and he’s sailin’ on to glory, away in the golden dory
he’s sailin’ on to glory, away in the golden dory

cod fish dan from newfoundland, he dreamt he three wishes
and he took mars and all the stars, and he turned them into big fishes
he said they sky was much to dry, and he made a wavey motion
and the moon like a boat began to float upon the starry ocean

and you might think it’s goofy, but the man in the moon is a newfie
and he’s sailin’ on to glory, away in the golden dory
he’s sailin’ on to glory, away in the golden dory

one night he strayed to the milky way, to cast his nets upon it
he spied the tail of a great big whale, and he harpooned haley’s comit
he never had a pot for the fish that he cought, so he had to use the big dipper
and the sun by jove was a very good stove, for cooking up smelts and kippers

and you might think it’s goofy, but the man in the moon is a newfie
and he’s sailin’ on to glory, away in the golden dory
he’s sailin’ on to glory, away in the golden dory

now the northern lights that seemed to bright like nothing could be grander
well they’re just waves of the moon boat made by the newfoundland commander
and don’t you sigh and say “oh my, what gross exaderation”
cause he’ll tell you the dream was true when cod fish dan awakens

and you might think it’s goofy, but the man in the moon is a newfie
and he’s sailin’ on to glory, away in the golden dory
he’s sailin’ on to glory, away in the golden dory

you might think it’s goofy, but the man in the moon is a newfie
and he’s sailin’ on to glory, away in the golden dory
he’s sailin’ on to glory, away in the golden dory

sailin’ on to glory, away in the golden dory
