COMAPNY:
1, 2, a-1 2 3 4

CLAUDE:
Welcome to the friends who have come from away
Welcome to the locals who have always said they’d stay
If you’re comin’ from Toldeo or you’re comin’ from Taipei
Because we come from everywhere, (+COMPANY) we all come from away:
Welcome to the Rock!

I’m an islander I am an islander
I’m an islander I am an islander
I’m an islander I am an islander
I’m an islander I am an islander

WOMAN:
Welcome to our island with its inlets and its bays
You could keep on heading east but there’s an ocean in the way
MAN:
Where everything is meant to be but nothing goes as planned
MAN:
And the drunkest fellas in the room are playin’ in the band

ALL:
Welcome to the Rock!

BEVERLY (spoken):
“With all the new security, kids aren’t even allowed up into the cockpit anymore.
Of course, on my retirement flight,
I brought my whole family into the cockpit on our way back to Gander.”

MAN (spoken):
“I came back with the scholarship money we raised, now worth over a million dollars.”

MAN (spoken):
“I get out the Irish whiskey and we have ourselves a toast.”

DIANE (spoken):
“Nick and I just couldn't make the long distance relationship work-“
NICK (spoken):
“-so I moved to Texas, and then I proposed-”
DIANE (spoken):
“-and we honeymooned in Newfoundland!”

KEVIN T. (spoken):
“My new secretary’s name is Robin (ROBIN: “what’s up!”).
Every year on September 11th, I close my office and give each employee $100
to go do random good deeds for strangers. It’s my way of remembering what happened.”

HANNAH (spoken):
“Beulah and I still keep in touch- she even came to visit me in New York.
And I’ll still phone her if I hear a really stupid joke.
Beulah- why are Newfoundlanders really terrible at knock knock jokes?”
BEULAH (spoken):
“I dunno, Hannah.”
HANNAH (spoken):
“Well, try it- I’ll be a Newfoundlander.”
BEULAH (spoken):
“Knock knock!”
HANNAH (spoken):
“Come on in- the door’s open!”

WOMAN (spoken):
“The donation we are most honoured by just arrived today.”
MAN (spoken):
“It’s about 4 metres long and 1200 kilograms”
WOMAN (spoken):
“Newfoundland is the only place outside the united states
where we share the steel from the World Trade Center”

CLAUDE (spoken):
“On the northeast tip of North America, on an island called Newfoundland, there’s an airport.
And next to it is a town called Gander.
Tonight we honour what was lost, but we also commemorate what we found.”

COMPANY (sings):
You are here
On the edge of a moment
On the edge of the world where the river meets the sea
Here on the edge of the Atlantic
On an island in between there and here (WOMEN sustain)

MEN WOMEN
I’m an islander I am an islander
I’m an islander I am an islander (there and here)
I’m an islander I am an islander
I’m an islander I am an islander (there and here)
I’m an islander I am an islander
I’m an islander I am an islander

MEN:
Welcome to the bog, welcome to the trees,
A kiss and a cod and whatever’s in between
To the ones who’ve left: you’re never truly gone
Our candle’s in the window and the kettle’s always on
+WOMEN:
To the coves and the caves and the people from the planes

CLAUDE:
5 days

BONNIE:
19 animals-

HANNAH:
and 7000 STRAYS!

WOMEN / MEN
(I’m an islander I am an islander)/ When the sun is setting and it’s darker than the north
(I’m an islander I am an islander)/ If you’re hopin’ for a harbour, then you’ll find an open door
(I’m an islander I am an islander)/ In the winter from the water to whatever’s in the waves
(I’m an islander I am-)

ALL
To the ones who have come from away
we say:

Welcome to the –

Welcome to the
Welcome to the
Welcome to the
Welcome to the
Welcome to the
Welcome to the ROCK!
