I was born and raised in Newfie,
Underneath a Newfie sky;
And I couldn't care less,
If my English ain't the best,
I'm proud to be a Newfie boy.

Ain't no better than you are,
But I'll look you right in the eye;
And I'll give it to you straight,
That I'm not second rate,
Just because I'm a Newfie boy.

Newfie boy, Newfie boy,
I was born one and I'll be one when I die;
Ain't got nothing but the feeling inside,
That it's good to be a Newfie boy.

Hey, Buddy, if you're ever in trouble,
I'll be right there by your side;
And I'll forget about the ways,
That you used me yesterday,
'Cause, Buddy, I'm a Newfie boy.

I don't know where I'm going,
And I don't care when I die;
But over my grave,
There'll be words to say:
He was proud to be a Newfie boy.

Newfie boy, Newfie boy,
I was born one and I'll be one when I die;
I ain't got nothing but the feeling inside,
That it's good to be a Newfie boy.

[Spoken:] Yes, I said that....

Newfie boy, Newfie boy,
I was born one and I'll be one when I die;
And I couldn't care less,
If my English ain't the best;,
I'm proud to be a Newfie boy.
Yeah, I'm proud to be a Newfie boy.
