The Streets of Old St. John's

YouTube video produced by Memorial University - St. John's Newfoundland and honoured as the official song for a Royal visit to St. John's Newfoundland


In the streets of old St. John’s
That’s where the song belongs.
In the streets of old St. John’s,
Though the rain goes pitter-pitter-patter
Nothing seems to matter but the song,
Nothing seems to matter all night long.

In the streets of old St. John’s,
Small bookstores hang out their signs,
And old wine stores sell old wine,
And though the rain goes pitter-pitter-patter
Nothing seems to matter but the song,
Nothing seems to matter all night long.

In the ships of old St. John’s,
There’s cargoes from the old country;
And they’ve sailed so far across the sea,
With the star dust in the rigging
And the mud-dust in her sigh,
The moonlight on the water
And I hear a sea gull cry.

In the streets of old St. John’s,
That’s where the song belongs.
In the streets of old St. John’s,
Though the rain goes pitter-pitter-patter
Nothing seems to matter but the song,
Nothing seems to matter all night long.

Little restaurant by the sea,
We’ll meet there, you and me.
And we’ll dine on the fine finnan haddie;
On fish and brews we’ll beat the blues
And I’ll be yours in old St. John’s.

In the streets of old St. John’s,
That’s where the song belongs.
In the streets of old St. John’s,
Though the rain goes pitter-pitter-patter
Nothing seems to matter but the song,
Nothing seems to matter all night long.
