Surrounded by a mighty sea, there's an island dear to me,
Described by some a place of rock and sand;
But so many a man has found when the world has turned him down,
There's no price tag on the doors in Newfoundland.

There's a welcome on the breeze blowin' inland from the seas,
That some folks find hard to understand;
But it's just to let you know, that no matter where you go,
There's no price tag on the doors in Newfoundland.

Raise your glass and drink with me to that island in the sea,
Where friendship is a word they understand;
You will never feel alone when you're in a Newfie's home,
There's no price tag on the doors in Newfoundland.

There will always be a chair at the table for you there,
They'll share what they have with any man;
You don't have to worry, friend, if your pocket book is thin,
There's no price tag on the doors in Newfoundland.

Raise your glass and drink with me to that island in the sea,
Where friendship is a word they understand;
You will never feel alone when you're in a Newfie's home,
There's no price tag on the doors in Newfoundland.
There's no price tag on the doors in Newfoundland.
