Today left the place where I was born and bred,
And I hope to live there many years ahead;
I'm really so proud of my little hometown,
But I wonder if the future will let it down.

We all know the fishery don't look too good,
It went down a lot when time ain't so good;
If the fishery dies, we'll be left in a mess,
All Newfies will leave the place they love best.

Newfoundlanders have always depended on fish,
For things to get better is everyone's wish;
If things don't improve, plants will die away,
Then what will we do to earn a good pay?

We all know the fishery don't look too good,
It went down a lot when time ain't so good;
If the fishery dies, we'll be left in a mess,
All Newfies will leave the place they love best.

For thirty years I've worked in this town,
But maybe someday I won't stick around;
Just what is the point if all stories are true,
All Newfies won't live with nothin' to do.

We all know the fishery don't look too good,
It went down a lot when time ain't so good;
If the fishery dies, we'll be left in a mess,
All Newfies will leave the place they love best.
All Newfies will leave the place they love best.
