A Toast To Newfoundland (Gordon Payne) video

We may not be so great
But we're proud of what we are,
We like the things other people like
A house and a big car;
Some people call us stupid
But I just think it's grand,
That I can say I'm a native son
Of the Isle of Newfoundland.

Sometimes life can get so rough
Along our rocky shore,
We say we'll just pack up and leave
And won't come back no more;
But something just keeps pulling us
As though it had us by the hand,
And every road we travel on
Leads back to Newfoundland.

I know it's hard for other folks
To understand the way we feel,
I can only say it's not a joke
This feeling it is real;
It comes from deep inside of us
And where once they stood we'll stand,
And we'll raise our glass and drink a toast
To the Isle of Newfoundland.

And we'll raise our glass and drink a toast
To the Isle of Newfoundland.
