Oh, I hear the fifes a-playin' high above the misty headlands,
A-hum the drums are drummin' down the long and briny shore;
My heart knows what they're sayin' - get in step and follow me, boy.
It's a song that they've been singin' for a thousand years or more.

Oh, the rollin' of the sea is beckonin' to me,
Sayin', come, my son, I'll show you things you've never seen before;
Come set your spirit free on the winds of history,
Hoist your sails and chart your course and go out and explore.
Oh, the rollin' of the sea is beckonin' to me:
Come home to Newfoundland and Labrador-or.

Well, I've always been the rover, I never settled down,
Searched the whole world over for things I never found;
Now I hear the ocean callin' with a voice so loud and strong:
Come on back to Newfoundland - that's where you belong.

Oh, the rollin' of the sea is beckonin' to me,
Sayin', come, my son, I'll show you things you've never seen before;
Come set your spirit free on the winds of history,
Hoist your sails and chart your course and go out and explore.
Oh, the rollin' of the sea is beckonin' to me:
Come home to Newfoundland and Labrador-or.

The rollin' of the sea is beckonin' to me,
Sayin', come, my son, I'll show you things you've never seen before;
Come set your spirit free on the winds of history,
Hoist your sails and chart your course and go out and explore.
Oh, the rollin' of the sea is beckonin' to me:
Come home to Newfoundland and Labrador-or.

[FADING:] The rollin' of the sea is beckonin' to me,
Sayin', come, my son, I'll show you things you've never seen before;
Come set your spirit free on the winds of history,
Hoist your sails and chart your course and go out and explore.
Oh, the rollin' of the sea is beckonin' to me:
Come home to Newfoundland and Labrador-or.
