How's she going, b'y? Well fine, thanks, me son.
We're just sittin' around here enjoyin' the sun.

Now why don't you join us in a yarn or two?
We're havin' a drink now, how about you?

'Cause we're talkin' 'bout the island,
The good times and the bad;
The fishin' and the hunting,
Oh, what fun we've had.
'Cause this is our island, our New Found Land.
Where we're livin', lovin' and laughin',
While the rest of the world....
The rest of the world.... they go mad.

You say you're not from here,
that you come from away,
To watch the icebergs drift into the bay.

There is so much to do, and oh, so much to see,
They say that our island's the jewel of the sea.

'Cause we're talkin' 'bout the island,
The good times and the bad;
The fishin' and the hunting,
Oh, what fun we've had.
'Cause this is our island, our New Found Land.
Where we're livin', lovin' and laughin',
While the rest of the world....
The rest of the world.... they go mad.

You say it's time to leave,
to go back to your home,
May the memories of our island
follow you wherever you roam.

'Cause we're talkin' 'bout the island,
The good times and the bad;
The fishin' and the hunting,
Oh, what fun we've had.
'Cause this is our island, our New Found Land.
Where we're livin', lovin' and laughin',
While the rest of the world....
The rest of the world.... they go mad.
