Rivers that sparkle and rush along free.
Forests so tall and green.
Dressed in her finery Canada fair.
None are as lucky as we.
Ahhh walk around, look around,
Take the time to say: "How lucky I am
That I live in this land of Canada today"
All kinds of people from faraway lands
Blended into one.
Customs and cultures we're willing to share
As true Canadians.
Pioneers suffered to settle this land;
The New World was its name.
Fairness and freedom they wanted for all,
Let's live up to what they claim.
Miles of highway are ours to explore,
An ever changing view;
Four different seasons we know and enjoy,
Whether rich we be or poor.
