Lyrics
An Island, Surrounded by the Sea
Ireland is an island
We all know quite well
And the sadness of leaving home
Its songs and stories tell
To emigrates, to foreign shores
Throughout history
Because they are an island
Surrounded by a sea
Now we feel that sadness
Right here in Montreal
Since the referendum
Affected one and all
In almost every writing
I know who beats out the weed
Now we are an island
Surrounded by a sea
No man is an island
John Dunn said long ago
Though what he really meant by that
I will never know
Or if there is a common thread
Through all humanity
It's that we are an island
Surrounded by a sea
Everybody's asking
Will you stay or will you leave
And every time we say farewell
To another friend we grieve
As one by one
We become a scattered family
From our little island
Surrounded by a sea
