Thanks a Lot For the Rock

Our island was discovered so long, long ago
Our fish was caught in baskets, so the story goes
John Cabot found our island, then found what he got
oh, the rock, John Cabot, thanks a lot

Thanks a lot, (thanks a lot) for the rock (for the rock)
For the freedom and the beauty that we got
From the ocean through, the valley and to the mountain tops
For the rock, John Cabot, thanks a lot

This island in the ocean, we call Newfoundland
Has a lot more to offer than just rock and sand
There's our mines and the forest, our wealth just seems to grow
On the grand banks they found black gold

Thanks a lot, (thanks a lot) for the rock (for the rock)
For the freedom and the beauty that we got
From the ocean, through the valley and to the mountain tops
For the rock, John Cabot, thanks a lot

A toast ... let's all drink to John Cabot and his crew
They came across from Bristol on the ship The Matthew
And landed somewhere in Bonvista Bay
For the rock, John Cabot, thanks a lot

Thanks a lot, (thanks a lot) for the rock (for the rock)
For the freedom and the beauty that we got
From the ocean through, the valley and to the mountain tops
For the rock, John Cabot, thanks a lot

Thanks a lot, (thanks a lot) for the rock (for the rock)
For the freedom and the beauty that we got
From the ocean through, the valley and to the mountain tops
For the rock, John Cabot, thanks a lot

For the rock, John Cabot, thanks a lot
