This island out here in the blue
Atlantic means the world to me,
And if I could have my way,
from her I would never leave;
I wake up each morning and thank the Lord
I was born upon her soil,
I'm a Newfoundlander born and bred,
I'm happy as a child.

Newfoundland, my Newfoundland,
how I love you so,
I wish I could take you with me
everywhere I go.

You walk upon her beach,
put my fingers through her sand,
Feel the ocean spray,
smell the fragrance of the land;
Such peace and beauty
around her rocky shore,
When strangers come to visit,
they want to leave no more.

Newfoundland, my Newfoundland,
how I love you so,
I wish I could take you with me
everywhere I go.

I love my gracious island
out in the Atlantic Sea,
When my life is over,
I pray someone will do this for me:
Lay me down in my Newfie ground
for my eternal sleep,
I know the good Lord will watch over me,
like a shepherd watches his sheep.

Newfoundland, my Newfoundland,
how I love you so,
I wish I could take you with me
everywhere I go.
I wish I could take you with me
everywhere I go.
