Newfoundland And Labrador

The ship is sailing o'er the ocean,
It'll take you back to Newfoundland,
To the land where you were born,
To the place where it all began.

It's been many years since you left home now,
To find employment you had to go,
Made your new home in Nova Scotia,
But most important new friends too.

Come back once in a while to see me,
My mountains and my valleys too,
Take a dip in my clear waters,
These things I have to offer you.

It's nice to have full-time employment,
It's nice to have new friends for sure,
But never forget your native homeland,
Newfoundland and Labrador.

You'll arrive at early morning,
And you'll be on your way once more,
Across this island of splendid beauty,
Newfoundland and Labrador.

Come back once in a while to see me,
My coves, my bays, beauty galore,
Pick some berries from your home land,
Newfoundland and Labrador,
Newfoundland and Labrador.
