When the little boats go out to sea,
From the shores of Newfoundland,
God, do me a favour, you guide them with your hand;
Protect them from the dangers and the fury of the sea,
For those little boats of Newfoundland, Lord, mean the world to me.

Spoken:
My Mama told me stories way back when I was just a little boy,
'Bout the little boats of Newfoundland that sometimes made me cry;
She told me of the hardships and the dangers of the seas,
That will remain until the day I die in my memories.

Brave men, she said, is what they are,
Those who face the icy winds;
Knowing when they leave the sheltered coves,
They may never, ever come back again.

Then as the teardrops filled my eyes,
She'd hold my tiny hand;
And say, son, the proudest thing on earth,
Are those little boats of Newfoundland.

When the little boats go out to sea,
From the shores of Newfoundland;
God, do me a favour, you guide them with your hand.
Protect them from the dangers and the fury of the sea,
For those little boats of Newfoundland, Lord, mean the world to me;
Yes, those little boats of Newfoundland, Lord, mean the world to me.
