Talking to an old friend
I haven't seen in years,
Wondering who's moved away
and who's still living here;
There's been so many changes,
it seems so long ago,
We played upon a dusty road
in a town called Burgeo.

A new town hall is standing
where we used to run and play,
Went to see our neighbours,
but they had moved away;
It seems that only strangers
now that I meet on the road,
There was a time I knew them all
in a town called Burgeo.

Barren but beautiful
this little town of ours,
Walking by the hillside,
picking berries and wild flowers;
Standing by the seaside,
feel the ocean breezes blow,
Barren but beautiful,
a town called Burgeo.

Listen to the seagulls
as they sing their mournful song,
Little boats go out to sea
in the early morning dawn;
To see old friends and
reminisce about days of old,
And walk the streets where
I was born in a town called Burgeo.

Barren but beautiful
this little town of ours,
Walking by the hillside,
picking berries and wild flowers;
Standing by the seaside,
feel the ocean breezes blow,
Barren but beautiful,
a town called Burgeo.

Barren but beautiful,
a town called Burgeo.
