Fisherman, fisherman,
You are the pride of Newfoundland;
Together, together be so proud to stand,
So, come on and shout it out
if you're a fisherman.

Trawlers tied up and their fish plant closed down,
Our plant workers and fishermen
are pushed into the ground;
We'll have to fight it now
for tomorrow it's too late,
Let's hold onto tradition
for our kids' and fathers' sake.

Fisherman, fisherman,
You are the pride of Newfoundland;
Together, together be so proud to stand,
So, come on and shout it out
if you're a fisherman.

We can't let it happen, we have too much to lose,
They gotta give our fish back,
they just can't refuse;
We'll pull up our hip rubbers
and keep fighting like before,
We'll fish out on the Grand Banks
and down off Labrador.

Fisherman, fisherman,
You are the pride of Newfoundland;
Together, together be so proud to stand,
So, come on, shout it out if you're a fisherman.

Fisherman, fisherman,
You are the pride of Newfoundland;
Together, together be so proud to stand,
So, come on and shout it out if you're a fisherman.
