Well, we're happy Newfoundlanders
And we're proud of our great land,
We love moose steaks and flipper pie
And everything is grand;
Our air is pure and our kids get fed
So I hope you'll understand,
That we're happy Newfoundlanders
And proud of our great land.

Yes, we're happy Newfoundlanders
And we don't really care,
We sit around and chew the fat
And drink our homebrew beer;
Oh, strangers think we don't have much -
Always cracking Newfie jokes,
Well, I've got news for them, my friends,
We're really happy folks.

Yes, we're happy Newfoundlanders
And we're proud of our great land,
We love moose steaks and flipper pie
And everything is grand;
Well, our air is pure, our kids get fed
So I hope you'll understand,
That we're happy Newfoundlanders
And proud of our great land.

Yes, we're happy Newfoundlanders
And we're proud of our great land,
We love moose steaks and flipper pie
And everything is grand;
Our air is pure and our kids get fed
So I hope you'll understand,
We're happy Newfoundlanders
And proud of our great land.

You know the good Lord must be treating us
In a little different way,
He protects all our fishermen
And brings 'em home each day;
Ah, we laugh a lot and carry on
And sing The Moonshine Can,
We're happy Newfoundlanders
And proud of our great land.
Yes, we're happy Newfoundlanders
And we're proud of our great land.
