They've sung songs about your forests,
And songs about your seas;
But let me tell you, Newfoundland,
You mean the world to me.

I had to leave you for a while,
In search of greater things;
And finding none, I have returned,
To your beauty once again.

You're home, your forests and fisher streams,
There are no greater thrills;
God must have planned you all in full,
From your valleys to your hills.

There are people who make fun of you,
And the way your people talk;
I'd like to take them by the hand,
Just for a little while.

To show them that we're not so poor,
As they might like to think;
To show them that your rivers are pure,
And that your pay is clean.

So, let them laugh and have their fun,
At things we like to do;
We'll get by, the three of us,
Me, my kids and you.
