Happy Canada Day! True North Strong and Free.


Canada is my country

and I'm proud to call it "Home".

Her beauty will always call me back

wherever I might roam.

God gave us this great country -

entrusting we'd keep it free;

And this is what we strive to do

as everyone can see.

Canada's people are diverse -

a balance to make us strong.

Variety is the spice of life

and our list of cultures is long.

From North to South, East to West,

each Province and Territory is unique -

But all "proud to be Canadian" -

nothing else would be complete.

On July 1st, we'll wave our flag -

the "Maple Leaf" will fly

In cities, towns, and open plains -

on water and in the sky.

We'll celebrate with music and dance

and, of course, "The Snowbirds" won't hide;

Our R.C.M.P on proud black steeds,

will entertain with the "Musical Ride."

At dusk, we'll watch the fireworks;

they'll be all across our land

And tiny tots to centenarians will know -

Canada holds us in her hand.
