When I go to Labrador,
try my fish three days or more;
Come along and go with me,
bring a kettle and lots of tea.

Green, green rocky road, promenade in green,
Tell me, tell me, won't you tell me please,
Won't you put my heart at ease,
Tell me, tell me, won't you tell me please,
who do you love.

See that gull up in the sky,
he don't walk, no, he just flies;
He don't walk and he don't run,
keeps on a-flappin' towards the sun.

Green, green rocky road, promenade in green,
Tell me, tell me, won't you tell me please,
Won't you put my heart at ease,
Tell me, tell me, won't you tell me please,
who do you love.

Tell me, tell me, won't you tell me please,
Won't you put my heart at ease,
Tell me, tell me, won't you tell me please,
who do you love.
