Listen up, me jolly boys, and hear the latest news,
Forget about your worries now and then;
There's a summer time brewing
on the isle of Newfoundland,
Driven by a fair and friendly wind.
Five hundred years of voices
are calling out to you,
Cabot left from Bristol-by-the-Sea,
Sailed the briney ocean with a crew of seventeen,
To write a page in history.

So get your duds in order, join us if you can,
The Caribou is headed for the dock;
Coming off the strand on the isle of Newfoundland,
Come along and join us on the rock.

There's a welcome for neighbours
living all around the world,
The very near, the far away;
All across the nation we joined in forty-nine,
All across the U S of A
There'll be singing and a-partying
the whole night long,
Singing and a-partying all day;
With fiddles and accordions
and wailing mandolins,
To help you dance the time away.

So get your duds in order, join us if you can,
The Caribou is headed for the dock;
Coming off the strand on the isle of Newfoundland,
Come along and join us on the rock.

There's places to be going
if you want to see the sights,
There's mountain trails
to steal your breath away;
Harbour fronts are buzzing
with little boats to float,
Take y'all a-sailing on the bay.
There is no need for worrying
about people that you meet,
'Cause everyone is going to be a friend;
When the summer time is over
and you're ready to move along,
You're wishing you could do it all again.

So get your duds in order, join us if you can,
The Caribou is headed for the dock;
Coming off the strand on the isle of Newfoundland,
Come along and join us on the rock.

So get your duds in order, join us if you can,
The Caribou is headed for the dock;
Coming off the strand on the isle of Newfoundland,
Come along and join us on the rock.
Won't you come along and join us on the rock?
Won't you come along and join us on the rock?
Come along and join us on the rock.
