I've been away, I gotta say,
It isn't really working for me;
I've been all around about,
I finally figured out,
Nothing in life ever comes free.
So I paid my dues, and I sang the blues,
But it's not how it's gotta be;
I'm headin' back to the island,
Smell the salt air,
And rekindle some old mysteries.

Like when we were rockin' on water,
We were breathing fresh air;
In her daddy's leaky dory,
And I'm sticking to my story, sir,
That's why we were late.
And I swear, out there on the ocean,
We didn't wanna be found;
We were rockin' on the water,
Making things a little hotter back in Newfoundland.

Every day it's all work and no play,
Just gotta get my piece of the pie;
Now that I realize it's just a big disguise,
It's all just pie in the sky.
I know what it means, I'm gonna follow my dreams,
Gonna pack my bags and then:
Head on back to the island,
On the ocean, back to those memories again.

Like when we were rockin' on water,
We were breathing fresh air;
In her daddy's leaky dory,
And I'm sticking to my story, sir,
That's why we were late.
And I swear, out there on the ocean,
We didn't wanna be found;
When we were rockin' on the water,
Making things a little hotter back in Newfoundland.

Like when we were rockin' on water,
We were breathing fresh air;
In her daddy's leaky dory,
And I'm sticking to my story, sir,
Why we were late.
And I swear, out there on the ocean,
We didn't wanna be found;
We were rockin' on the water,
Making things a little hotter back in Newfoundland.

We were rockin' on water, feelin' fancy and free,
We were living nice and easy;
It might sound a little cheesy,
But it's all right for me.
And I swear, out there on the ocean,
We didn't wanna be found;
We were rockin' on the water,
Making things a little hotter back in Newfoundland;
We were rockin' on the water,
Making things a little hotter back in Newfoundland.
