Labrador (The Flummies)

They sing songs of London and Kentucky and Spain,
Of beautiful places and those I can't name;
I'll sing you a song of the place I adore,
In the beautiful northland we call Labrador.

Where the great otter roams on land and on sea,
Where the bright northern lights shine
that's where I want to be;
There's a beautiful maiden I'm longing to see,
In the snow-covered valley she's waiting for me.

Where the towering mountains
reach high in the sky,
And the beautiful valleys I'll love till I die;
The great dancing rivers where waterfalls roar,
In the beautiful northland we call Labrador.

Now, I've known some people
through cities they've roamed,
But just for a short time they favour my home;
Sometimes they get lonesome and homesick for,
This home in the northland we call Labrador.

Where the towering mountains
reach high in the sky,
And the beautiful valleys I'll love till I die;
The great dancing rivers where waterfalls roar,
In the beautiful northland we call Labrador.
In the beautiful northland we call Labrador.
