I Am Canadian



I AM CANADIAN RANT!

I am not a lumberjack or a fur trader.
And I don't live in an igloo or eat blubber or own a dogsled.
I don't know Jimmy, Sally or Suzy from Canada,
Although I am certain they are really, really nice.
I have a Prime Minister not a president.
I speak Enlgish and French not American.
And I pronounce it 'about' not 'aboot'!
I can proudly sew my country's flag on my backpack.
I believe: In peacekeeping, not policing.
Diversity, not assimilation.
And that the beaver is truly a proud and nobel amimal.
A touque is a hat!
A chesterfield is a couch!
And it's proncounced Zed, not Zee, Zed.
Canada is the second-largest landmass,
The first nation of hockey,
And the best part of North America!
My name is Joe, and...
I AM CANADIAN!

HERE'S TO YOU, CANADA!

Here's to your hockey hair,
Your long under-wear and multi-coloured money.
Here's to you saying please,
Your ducks and geese And always being funny.
Here's to your open spaces,
Away from rat races, and a beer that quenches the thirst,
Here's to being proud, And saying it out loud.
Even when you don't come first.
Here's to your pretty girls,
Your black-coloured squirrels,
And a flag that stands so free.
Here's to different races,
From different places,
Who love this country like me.
But most of all, Here's to standing tall,
And saying it like a true Acadian.
I love this land, I love this country,
And I AM CANADIAN!

PROUD TO BE CANADIAN

I know this place is where I am
No other place is better than
No matter where I go I am
Proud to be Canadian

I am. You know I am. I am Canadian.

I love this country where I am
This land is where I make my stand
Ya Pas un Coeur Qui est (No other heart is)
Truer than the one we call Canadian.

I am. You know I am. I am Canadian.

I AM CANADIAN!
