Information/Write-up

I've seen a lot of sadness in the countries of this world,
I've seen the starving faces of a million boys and girls;
I've walked the war torn countryside and the bloody battered streets,
Where young men fought and died because they wanted to be free.

And as I watch my children playing freely with their friends,
I thank God for this country, mister, that we're living in;
There are no cries of fighting soldiers dying on our streets,
I wouldn't take a million dollars for a single Maple Leaf.

When you think you've got troubles, you just listen to the news,
And I'm sure you'll realize, my friends, your troubles they are few;
Compared to those of others in the countries of this world,
We live in a paradise, a rare and priceless pearl.

Spoken:
Yes, friends, we've got so much to be thankful for, all across this land,
From the mighty Pacific Ocean to the shores of Newfoundland;
So tonight when your children pray down on their knees,
You ask them to ask God to bless Canada and forever keep her free.

Yes, as I watch my children playing freely with their friends,
I thank God for this country, mister, that we're living in;
There are no cries of fighting soldiers dying on our streets,
I wouldn't take a million dollars for a single Maple Leaf.
I wouldn't take a million dollars for a single Maple Leaf.
