Thank God We're Surrounded by Water

I'll tell you a tale about Newfoundland dear
We haven't got money or riches to spare
But we can be thankful of one small affair
Thank God we're surrounded by water

The sea oh the sea the wonderful sea
Long may she roam between people and me
And everyone hear should get down on one knee
Thank God we're surrounded by water

The Englishmen came over in to John Groat{?}
They came over to ride our colonial goat
We'd have 8 million more but they didn't have boats
Thank God we're surrounded by water

The sea oh the sea the wonderful sea
Long may she roam between people and me
And everyone hear should get down on one knee
Thank God we're surrounded by water

Some visitors tasted our Newfoundland Screech
Tipped up the bottle drank 6 ounces each
And they let out a yell as they ran for our beach
Thank God we're surrounded by water

The sea oh the sea the wonderful sea
Long may she roam between people and me
And everyone hear should get down on one knee
Thank God we're surrounded by water

Now Bessie Joe Kemp took her horse for a ride
She ripped her old bloomers right up the left side
And she hung them to dry on the beach at low tide
Thank God we're surrounded by water

The sea oh the sea the wonderful sea
Long may she roam between Bessie and me
And everyone hear should get down on one knee
Thank God we're surrounded by water

The French in Quebec want a separate state
Including our own Labrador just you wait
They came down to Bell Isle but they cant walk our straight
Thank God we're surrounded by water

The sea oh the sea the wonderful sea
Long may she roam between people and me
And everyone hear should get down on one knee
Thank God we're surrounded by water

Now Joey {Brian} was God said the Liberal bunch
One day on our harbour he walked after lunch
But he couldnt quite make that old Galilee stunt
Thank God we're surrounded by water

The sea oh the sea the wonderful sea
Long may she roam between Joey {Brian} and me
And everyone hear should get down on one knee
Thank God we're surrounded by water
Thank God we're surrounded by water
