I'm From Newfoundland Not Disneyland (Brent Tourout)

Well I'll tell ya, man, I don't understand about this world today,
About all the crazy things people do, and the wicked things they say;
And I'm not just sayin this 'cause I'm from the sea,
But I think they'd be better off if they were born a Newfie.

Like the other day on the news, this feller killed his wife,
And one poor young man's little bird was cut off with a knife;
And I know that I'm not perfect, and I know I'm not half goofy,
But I'm from Newfoundland not Disneyland,
Yes, I was born a Newfie.

Because in Newfoundland we understand,
We know our wrong from right;
And when we do get angry,
At least we live through the fight.
And I know that when I'm drunk,
That I might get a little moody;
But I'm from Newfoundland not Disneyland,
Yes, I was born a Newfie.

Spoken:
Well, let me tell you about some of the biggest crimes
I've ever seen In Newfoundland...

Well, the biggest bomb I think I ever saw was my buddies fart,
And the greatest stabbing was an accidental dart;
And no, I just can't explain what the Island means to me,
'Cause I'm from Newfoundland not Disneyland,
Yes, I was born a Newfie.

Because in Newfoundland we understand,
We know our wrong from right;
And when we do get angry,
At least we live through the fight.
And I know that when I'm drunk,
That I might get a little moody;
Yes, I'm from Newfoundland not Disneyland,
Yes, I was born a Newfie.

Well, in Newfoundland we understand,
We know our wrong from right;
And when we do get angry,
At least we live through the fight.
And I know that when I'm drunk,
That I might get a little moody;
Well, I'm from Newfoundland not Disneyland,
Yes, I was born a Newfie.

Yes, I'm from Newfoundland not Disneyland,
Yes, I was born a Newfie.
