I've crossed the ocean many times,
been in many foreign lands,
I've seen so many troubles,
you might never understand;
If you ever see me leavin',
it's only for a little while,
'Cause I'm 100% Newfoundlander
until the day I die.

Don't mind goin' to the mainland,
it's a worldwide melting pot,
Where people come from troubled lands
to give new life a shot;
In her towns the money's good,
a place you can abide,
But you're 100% Newfoundlander
until the day you die.

Well, I love the sound of breakers
as the sea comes rolling in,
And I love to hear those seagulls scream
as they dive and dance the wind;
And I love to hear our children laugh,
carefree and full of joy,
Yes, I'm 100% Newfoundlander
until the day I die.

Gotta pull our boots up proud and strong,
get on the band wagon,
Gotta make sure that we flick the spark
that ignites the Newfoundlander's dream;
Can't do what other men have done,
it'll be too late by and by,
Gotta be 100% Newfoundlander
until the day we die.

Well, I love the sound of breakers
as the sea comes rolling in,
And I love to hear those seagulls scream
as they dive and dance the wind;
And I love to hear our children laugh,
carefree and full of joy,
Yes, I'm 100% Newfoundlander
until the day I die.

And I intend to stay 100% Newfoundlander,
100% Newfoundlander, until the day I die.
