about

This is Old Salty's first song in the show. It's the Screeching in Ceremony. Sung to Johnny and the audience with a chorus of bar patrons.

lyrics

GET SCREECHED IN

Old Salty: Ya wanna be a Newfoundlander
Ya gotta get Screeched in.
Ya can’t do it with whiskey or rye
Ya can’t do it with gin

What ya need id the local drop
It’s the only way to begin
take a shot and kiss the cod
and get Screeched in!

Get Screeched in! Get Screeched in!
It’s what the doctor ordered, me son
Take your medicine!

Get Screeched in! Get Screeched in!
Take a shot and kiss the cod
and get Screeched in!

Sing along with Bob & the Buoys
Pick your poison, plenty of choice
But first you gotta kiss the cod
and get Screeched in!

Get Screeched in! Get Screeched in!
You just had a spill. If you get a chill
take your medicine!

Get Screeched in! Get Screeched in!
You had a close shave, if you are brave
put this one over your chin!

Get Screeched in! Get Screeched in!
It’s what the doctor ordered, me Son!
Take your medicine!

Get Screeched in! Get Screeched in!
Take a shot and kiss the cod
and get Screeched in!
