{Spoken}:
Here's a song tonight for all the Newfies
living in a big city like T O or Montreal
and all them places....

I left Newfoundland for the city T O,
Thinkin' everything was better
than it was back home;
But after I got there and settled down,
There was somethin' missing
from that, that ghost town.

I was a D P Newfie and I let it be known,
Everyone I talked with I told them
I loved back home;
They said it must be a beautiful place,
That was when the tears rolled down my face.

Well, that girl I left waitin' behind,
She wanted to come with me
but I wouldn't give her the time;
She wrote me today and she said
that she loved me,
But I'd have to come back 'cause
she wasn't leavin' Newfie.

I was a D P Newfie and I let it be known,
Everyone I talked with I told them
I loved back home;
They said it must be a beautiful place,
That was when the tears rolled down my face.

So, seven-o-seven won't you do your stuff,
Put me back down where all the people are tough;
Take away this feelin' of a big lone city,
And I won't have to feel like a D P Newfie.
Take away this feelin' of a big lone city,
And I won't have to feel like a D P Newfie.
