about

Johnny was just given his first taste of Newfoundland's most famous potent potable.

lyrics

SCREECH TO A HALT

Johnny: Well, if I survived the ocean
I can imbibe your Gypsy potion
Might give me the notion
it’s your fault

I better Screech - to a halt
I better stop on a dime
I better Screech - to a halt
and take my time.

If I start seeing double
I might get myself in trouble
I hate to burst your bubble
Mr. Salt

I better Screech - to a halt
I better slow right down
I better Screech to a halt
before I go down.

I’ve had Kentucky moonshine in my day
Tennessee Whiskey and Tequila Agave
But when i shoot this Newfie brew
I don’t know who I’m talking to
I better Screech - to a halt right away.

Now the spirit’s moving through me
What’s this concoction doing to me
It’s gonna take me, shake me, make me
summersault

I better Screech - to a halt
I better stop for a bit
I better Screech - to a halt
I’m done with it.

I better Screech - to a halt
I better stop on a dime
I’d better Screech - to a halt
and take my time.
