Happy 148th Birthday Canada!

It all started with a simple picture of my 10 month old daughter holding a Canadian flag.  Now 7 years later, all 3 of my kids proudly wave the maple leaf on Canada Day. 

C-A-N-A-D-A,
Tell me what’s a Douglas Fir


C-A-N-A-D-A,
Betcha never heard a bobcat purr

C-A-N-A-D-A,
Have you ever seen a lobster crawl?


In Canada, we get to see them all.

We get to see the maple trees, maple sugar and the maple leaves,
We got the biggest wheat fields growing tall

In C-A-N-A-D-A, where we see the reversing falls
In Canada, we get to see them all.

C-A-N-A-D-A,
Tell me, what’s a tidal bore,


 C-A-N-A-D-A,A
Have you ever heard the ocean roar?



C-A-N-A-D-A,
Just listen to that wild goose call.


In Canada, we get to see them all

We get to see the maple trees, maple sugar and the maple leaves,
We got the biggest timber woods so tall 
In C-A-N-A-D-A, where adventure ever calls,
In Canada, we get to see them all.

C-A-N-A-D-A,
Have you ever heard a maple creak?

C-A-N-A-D-A,
Betcha never seen a mountain peak.


C-A-N-A-D-A,
In the land of the big snowball.


In Canada, we get to see them all.

We get to see the maple trees, maple sugar and the maple leaves,

We got the biggest wheat fields growing tall

In C-A-N-A-D-A, where we see the reversing falls,
In Canada, we get to see them all.


C-A-N-A-D-A,
Have you ever seen a magnetic hill?


C-A-N-A-D-A,
Or a lady on a dollar bill?




C-A-N-A-D-A,
Betcha never seen the autumn fall.


,
We get to see the maple trees, maple sugar and the maple leaves,
We got the biggest timber woods so tall 
In C-A-N-A-D-A, where adventure ever calls,
In Canada, we get to see them all.


*Lyrics from the song C-A-N-A-D-A by Raffi

It's a day late, but Happy Canada Day to all my Canadian peeps out there.
