Welcome to Newfoundland and Labrador,
Relax and we'll show you around;
When you stepped on the sand of this beautiful land,
You be standin' on our piece o' ground.

The people you find here are gentle and kind,
And they'll welcome you inside their doors;
It eases your mind, leaves your troubles behind,
Here in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Have you heard of the whales,
how they dance on the swells,
And then come right straight out of the sea,
And lay peacefully there on a blanket of air,
And then tumble back into the sea?

The icebergs they rise from the sea to the skies,
And they stand there alone in the waves,
And their beauty unfolds from her ice frozen rose,
They've taken from years on the sea.

"Hello, how you doin'?" You'll hear now and then,
From the people you meet on the way;
It eases your mind, leaves your troubles behind,
You're standin' on our piece o' ground.

You can sit with your chin cradled into your hands,
As the breeze gently cleanses your soul,
And stare into the skies, or, just close your eyes,
That's a beauty that you can behold.

Oh, mother nature, you've treated us kind,
With sights here that most only dream;
We've opened our doors, and our welcome flag soars,
Come visit us, live out your dream.

Welcome to Newfoundland and Labrador,
You're standin' on our piece o' ground.
