Shove the Package to Hell, Go Back to the Sea

DFO regulations permitted the rape
Of our beautiful ocean, from headland to cape.
They brought in big trollers, they tore up our twine;
Politicians don’t care for what’s yours or what’s mine!

You brave Newfoundlanders, now listen to me:
Shove the Package to hell, go back to the sea.
If we don’t stand our ground, we will fade away;
And the bones of our fathers will turn in the clay.

I’ve spent my whole life, out there on the sea;
Some government bastard now takes it from me.
It’s not just the fish, they’ve taken my pride;
I feel so ashamed that I just want to die.
