Thanks A Lot For The Rock (Stan MacDonald)

Our island was discovered so long, long ago,
Our fish were caught in baskets, so the story goes;
John Cabot found our island, then found what he got,
Oh, the rock, John Cabot, thanks a lot.

Thanks a lot (thanks a lot) for the rock (for the rock)
For the freedom and the beauty that we got;
From the ocean through the valley and to the mountain tops,
For the rock, John Cabot, thanks a lot.

This island in the ocean we call Newfoundland,
Has a lot more to offer than just rock and sand;
There's our mines and the forest, our wealth just seems to grow,
On the Grand Banks, they found black gold.

Thanks a lot (thanks a lot) for the rock (for the rock)
For the freedom and the beauty that we got;
From the ocean through the valley and to the mountain tops,
For the rock, John Cabot, thanks a lot.

A toast… Let's all drink to John Cabot and his crew,
They came across from Bristol on the ship The Matthew,
And landed somewhere in Bonavista Bay;
For the rock, John Cabot, thanks a lot.

Thanks a lot (thanks a lot) for the rock (for the rock)
For the freedom and the beauty that we got;
From the ocean through the valley and to the mountain tops,
For the rock, John Cabot, thanks a lot.

Thanks a lot (thanks a lot) for the rock (for the rock)
For the freedom and the beauty that we got;
From the ocean through the valley and to the mountain tops,
For the rock, John Cabot, thanks a lot.

For the rock, John Cabot, thanks a lot.
