Me name is Captain Morgan
and I sail the seven seas;
You can find me here in Newfoundland
me jib set to the breeze.
I like to get together with
me old friends on the shore;
We party down on George Street
and up to Labrador.

It started many years ago,
after sailing real high waves;
I sailed on up to Harbour Grace
and stayed at the Pirates Cave.
Around the point to Trinity Bay,
if the wind is blowing right,
Anchor at the Hopeall Dock,
there's a party every night.

Hey! Hey! Hey!

Raise your mugs and drink with me,
ye salts of Newfoundland;
Drink with Captain Morgan
a toast to this great land.
From Carbonear to Port Aux Basque
we'll all sing along;
We're proud to be from Newfoundland,
that's why we sing this song.

We hid our gold in Fortunes Bay,
that's how it got its name;
We used to stop at Come By Chance
for a little fun and games.
We sailed up through the Belle Isle Straits
and on to Labrador;
We partied with the Vikings
who camped along the shore.

Every summer there's a festival
down in Burgeo;
We always stopped at Goblin
on our way to Furby's Cove.
We stayed one night in Birchy Bay,
we laughed and carried on;
No strangers live in Newfoundland,
that's why we call it home.

Hey! Hey! Hey!

Raise your mugs and drink with me,
ye salts of Newfoundland;
Drink with Captain Morgan
a toast to this great land.
From Carbonear to Port Aux Basque
we'll all sing along;
We're proud to be from Newfoundland,
that's why we sing this song.
We're proud to be from Newfoundland,
that's why we sing this song.

From the Age Of Pirates Pirate Encyclopedia:
Sir Henry 'Captain' Morgan - Immortalized by Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum, produced today in Puerto Rico, Henry Morgan was no ordinary pirate. In his heyday he was a privateer empowered by the British government to fight against Spain, and most accounts describe him as a politician. Most notably, King Charles II made him a Knight of the Realm in 1673 and Lt Governor of Jamaica.
