Have you heard the news in Newfoundland? Rollin' around the Rock
How Reggie brought for Marggie home, cowsy dungsy clock?
With Marggie being a farm girl, she almost took a fit
To find the cowsy dungsy 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 the 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 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 they're rollin' through the Maritimes, The truck was nearly full
The cow began to ball, she was lonesome for the bull
The Mountie pulled them over "Is there something I can do?"
"Go right ahead" sir Marggie said, "climb in the back and moo"

Now when they got to Montreal, they missed the Auto route
But they found that everyone in town was glad to help them out.
The sooner you hit Toronto, the sooner you'll make it big
Margo's 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 401 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 got to find the place that makes the cowsy dungsy clock

Well I wish you coulda been there, on the corner of Queen and Young
When Margo found the company and she dumped her load of dung
And when she found the office she was singing and doin' a jig
Margo's got the cargo b'y and Reggie's got the rig, Reggie got the rig
Reggie got the rig, Margo brought the cargo b'y and Reggie brought the rig.

It was later in the evening when they heard from Mr. Judge
I don't know what to give ya's. but I'll never hold a grudge
I think a thousand dollars would be fair ta hand ya down
And 30 days of lodging will be free upon the town

Now Margo says to Reggie "What a hell of a deal we've struck"
We might have lost a cow b'y, but still we got the truck
And now they're back in Newfoundland, They're loadin' up the pig
Margo's 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.

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