about

I wrote this song for a grade four class that was having trouble remembering all of the provinces in Canada. They were learning about the different industries we have here, and then wrote a song about a province of their choice.

lyrics

There are many ways to describe this country that we live in
provinces, great lakes, territories and the regions
some stay warm and let's face it some get really cold
'cause in the winter we get tons and tons of heavy snow
that's the one thing that I love about Canada get every season that is posted on the calendar

Well let me tell you 'bout the red and white
don't worry I won't take up your hockey night

We got Ontario, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, Newfoundland and Labrador, PEI, Quebec and there's more Nunavut, BC, Yukon, Manitoba, North West Territories, New Brunswick, and Alberta

Start with the west where we get lumber to build all our homes
Alberta beef is triple A from all the cows that roam
oil gets serviced right in Edmonton capital city and a hub for distribution
Saskatchewan and Manitoba are really flat but we need it for the wheat to grow and that is that!

Well let me tell you 'bout the red and white
don't worry I won't take up your hockey night

We got Ontario, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, Newfoundland and Labrador, PEI, Quebec and there's more Nunavut, BC, Yukon, Manitoba, North West Territories, New Brunswick, and Alberta

Canada's the greatest place to be
true patriot love it is for me
remember our true north strong and free, we come far and wide with differences but we are one you see

Farmer's grow produce in Quebec and in Ontario
Quebec speaks mostly french just incase you didn't know
New Brunswick is also highly bilingual they're known for energy and also all the paper mills keep going East you find music, fish and mines
and way up North is gold, petroleum and diamonds

Well let me tell you 'bout the red and white
don't worry I won't take up your hockey night

We got Ontario, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, Newfoundland and Labrador, PEI, Quebec and there's more Nunavut, BC, Yukon, Manitoba, North West Territories, New Brunswick

Well let me tell you 'bout the red and white
don't worry I won't take up your hockey night

We got Ontario, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, Newfoundland and Labrador, PEI, Quebec and there's more Nunavut, BC, Yukon, Manitoba, North West Territories, New Brunswick, and Alberta

Oh Canada.....I Love Canada......I LOVE CANADA!
