"Passamaquoddy" is a song featured in Pete's Dragon It was sung by Dr. Terminus during his arrival in the town of the same name.


Dr. Terminus: I've been bringing cures from Pilgrim Heights to Provincetown
Treated rabbit fever down on Queen Anne Road
Gout or gastritus, mumps or bronchitis
Bites and burns and blue abrasions
Got a pill for all occasions
Little Sippewisse was so nice to visit
And Scroggy Neck is lovely to recall
But through all my trips
Good Lord there's one place
One corner, one town on my lips

Why it's--
Poddomaquassy, uh, Paquamasoddy
No, no
Passamamassy, Quoddamapoddy, Passamadaddy
Quoddamapassy, Passamahoddy
Oh, I know
It's Passamashloddy
Townspeople: No!
It's Passamaquoddy!

Dr. Terminus: Of course, that's what I meant to say
Fat Woman: I took your drug for losing weight and now I'm a blob
Dr. Terminus: But now there's so much more of you to love

Dr. Terminus: I wiped out impetigo on the banks of Buttermilk
Flu is under firm control in Powder Hole
Terminus potions, tablets and lotions
Major news in modern science
Step up now and join my clients
Spent a day in Buzzard's Bay
They couldn't keep me there
Even turned away from Kingdom Hall
But since I was young
Good lord, there's once spot
One little bit of heaven on my tongue

Why it's--
Poddomaquassy, no, no Paquamasoddy
No, Passamamassy, Quoddamapoddy, Passamadaddy
Quoddamapassy, Passamahoddy
Oh, I know
It's Passamashloddy
Townspeople: No!
It's Passamaquoddy!

Dr. Terminus: Of course, ha ha! I knew it all the time.
Old Man: My hair was gray and thanks to you it turned into pink
Dr. Terminus: But that color, it's so becoming
Townspeople: We're gonna wash your phony tonics right down the sink

Dr. Terminus: Wait! Listen! My specialties are audiology,
mycology, serology, teratology,
embryology, psychology, zoology
and any other ology you can think of!

My friends, you've seen a miracle and you'll see many more
People will come pouring in from land and sea
We'll have centers for testing
Let's start investing
Keep those dimes and dollars mounting
I'll collect
I'll do the counting
Everyone who lives here will be strong and healthy
You'll be getting richer by the day
Hear them acclaim us
This town will be famous
The whole wide world will look at us and say
Poddomaquassy, no, Paquamasoddy Qu-Qu-Quoddamapassy, Quoddamadaddy Dappaddy, Dappamossy, Quoddapossy Pwassapwassa, Passaquassa Pass-a-ma-quod-dy!


  • In the film version a fourth of the second verse and the entire second chorus are cut, however they remain intact in the soundtrack version.
