Stompin' Tom Connors - Margo's Cargo lyrics

Have ya heard the news in Newfoundland, rollin' around the rock?
How Reggie brought for Margie home a cowsee dungsee clock?
With Margie bein' a farm girl, she almost took a fit;
To find the cowsee dungsee clock was really made of it!

The clock was from Toronto, and her mind was soon made up-
She said to Reggie, "get the cow, and load her on da truck,
We're headin' for Ontario and we're off to make 'er big!"

'Cause Margo's got the cargo b'y and Reggie's got da rig!

Reggie's got the rig, Reggie's got the rig;
Margo's got the cargo b'y, and Reggie's got the rig!

Now they're rollin' through the Maritimes, the truck was nearly full.
The cow began to ball, she was lonesome for da bull;
The mountie pulled dem over, "is there somethin' I can do?"
"Go right ahead sir", Margie said, "climb in the back and moo!"

Now when they got to Montreal they missed the autoroute-
But they found that everyone in town was glad to help dem out!
"The sooner ya hit Toronto", they said, "the sooner you'll make 'er big"-
Cause Margo got the cargo b'y, and Reggie's got the rig!

Reggie's got the rig, Reggie's got the rig;
Margo's got the cargo b'y, and Reggie's got the rig!

Now the truck was overflowin' when Toronto hit the rise;
The four-O-one was full of dung and the cab was full of flies.
"We're losin' lots of money", Reg, "We can't afford to stop!"
"We gotta find the place that makes the cowsee dungsee clock!"

Well I wish ya coulda been there on the corner of Queen and Yonge,
When Margo found the company and she dumped her load o' dung!
And when she found da office she was singin' and doin' a jig!
Margo's got the cargo b'ys and Reggie's got the rig!

Reggie got the rig, Reggie got the rig;
Margo brought the cargo b'ys, and Reggie brought the rig!

It was later in the evenin' when they heard from Mr. Judge,
"I don't know what to give yas, but I'll never hold a grudge!"
"I tink a tousand dollars would be fair to hand ya down,
And thirty days of lodging will be free upon da town!"

Now Margo says to Reggie, "What a helluva deal we've struck!"
"We mighta lost da cow, b'y, but still we got da truck!"
And now dey're back in Newfoundland, dey're loadin' up the the pig,
'Cause Margo got da cargo, b'y and Reggie's got the rig!

Reggie's got the rig, Reggie's got the rig;
Margo's got the cargo b'y, and Reggie's got the rig!
Margo's got the cargo b'y, and Reggie's got the rig!
