The Islander

I'm a Newfoundlander born and bred and I'll be one 'til I die,
I'm proud to be an islander and here's the reason why,
I'm free as the wind and the waves that wash the sand,
There's no place I would rather be than here in Newfoundland.

I spent some time in New York state and nearly lost my mind,
The city life's too fast for me, nobody has the time.
Cement and steel and flashing lights was all that I could see,
It may be good for New York state but it's no damn good for me.

I'm a Newfoundlander born and bred and I'll be one 'til I die,
I'm proud to be an islander and here's the reason why,
I'm free as the wind and the waves that wash the sand,
There's no place I would rather be than here in Newfoundland.

In Montreal the Frenchmen say that they own Labrador,
Including Indian Harbour where me father fished before,
But if they want to fight for her I'll surely take a stand,
And they'll regret the day they tried to take our Newfoundland.

Now that the oil is on our shore we'd better take the time,
To develop it more carefully or else we're gonna find,
What could have been the answer to our poor economy,
Has changed our way of living and destroyed our fishery.

I'm a Newfoundlander born and bred and I'll be one 'til I die,
I'm proud to be an islander and here's the reason why,
I'm free as the wind and the waves that wash the sand,
There's no place I would rather be than here in Newfoundland.

I'm a Newfoundlander born and bred and I'll be one 'til I die,
I'm proud to be an islander and here's the reason why,
I'm free as the wind and the waves that wash the sand,
There's no place I would rather be than here in Newfoundland.
There's no place I would rather be than here in Newfoundland.
