I've travelled the highways 'cross Canada's breast
In search of a wanderer's dream,
The towns and the cities where I came to rest
Were never at all what they seemed;
For the beat of the heart of my homeland
Beckoned to me on the breeze,
Now I'm content and I do as I please
By the ocean with toutans and tea.

Now I sit by the ocean with toutans and tea
At the dawn of a warm summer day,
I watch the sun rising o'er shimmering sea
While the daylight envelopes the grey;
And sounds as the morning awakens
Whisper to me on the breeze,
Seagulls are searching and dining with me
By the ocean with toutans and tea.

Come and sit by the ocean,
Feel the warm summer breeze
Cast a spell like a potion,
You may never wanna leave;
Let the beauty surround you,
Dream all your dreams by the sea,
Drop all your cares and go dining with me,
By the ocean with toutans and tea.

I sit by the ocean with toutans and tea,
Watch the boats as they head for the bay,
The harbour awakens to the sounds of the sea,
As the fishermen start a new day;
And I think of the fishers before me,
Who gave all their lives to the sea,
I know that they're watching and dining with me,
By the ocean with toutans and tea.

Come and sit by the ocean,
Feel the warm summer breeze
Cast a spell like a potion,
You may never wanna leave;
Let the beauty surround you,
Dream all your dreams by the sea,
Drop all your cares and go dining with me,
By the ocean with toutans and tea.

Come and sit by the ocean,
Feel the warm summer breeze
Cast a spell like a potion,
You may never wanna leave;
Let the beauty surround you,
Dream all your dreams by the sea,
Drop all your cares and go dining with me,
By the ocean with toutans and tea.
