Canada... what's with Canada...
We got great big cities but a lot of trees and rocks
And ya the winter's cold here - wear two pairs of socks
There's half the world's fresh water, to paddle your canoe
Camp along the shoreline, it's what we like to do
In Canada...
I'm livin' in Canada
Float my boat in Canada
Bait my hook in Canada

We tend to do things different, we each have our routine
Some of us eat kubassa, some of us, poutine (Ah, J'aime Poutine)
But we have traditions, that help us stick together
Our milk comes in a bag, mosquitos eat at leisure
Playing in a snowsuit, the True North strong and free
Hockey Night on Saturday, there on CBC, (or now on Sportsnet)
Center ice in Canada (coming to you from coast to coast)
He shoots he scores in Canada
I'm a player in Canada

We pronounce the letter R like we're pirates on a ship
We'll drive two thousand miles, on a summer camping trip
We wear Sorels in winter, while plugging in the car
We eat the holes from donuts, we love Nanaimo bars
And we do possess a word that lubricates our speech:
"It's pretty good, eh" ("It's pretty good, eh")
And it's always within reach
How's it goin' in Canada
Out and about in Canada
Drop your G in Canada
Oh oh oh...

I've slept out in the forest, scared I heard a bear
I've climbed a Rocky Mountain, just because it's there
Crossed the great St Lawrence, said merci beaucoup
Pardon me; I'm sorry; excuse me; after you
In Canada
Politely in Canada
Line-up here in Canada
You don't butt, in Canada
Oh oh oh...

Every city empties on the 24th of May (Queen's Birthday)
If we say "Not bad!", ("Not bad!") we're better than OK, ("Not bad!")
There's workman's comp and pogie, for when we're shown the door
There's Canadian Tire money, in at least one kitchen drawer
And we have a golden rule that runs between these shores:
You stay out of my face, I'll stay out of yours...
In Canada
I get along in Canada
Kiss the cod in Canada
A friendly jibe in Canada
Oh oh oh...

Oh... Canada...
