Canada 150 - New Song Release

Lyrics

O Canada, Canada One Five O
O Canada, Canada Cent Cinquante

True North, strong and free
From sea to sea to sea
True North strong and free
So much to see and be

Charlottetown, Confederation, old John A
Macdonald, Cartier, the CP Railway

Alexander Graham Bell, phone today
Manitoba, O Canada, Calixa Lavallée

Last spike made at Eagle Pass
Banff Park created to make it last

Wilfred Laurier he carries the weight
Klondike Gold back in 1898

Marconi radio, Signal Hill, St-John’s
Add Alberta and Saskatchewan

Anne of Green Gables, oh it reads so well
A brand new navy, and ocean swells

Vimy Ridge, Halifax, a long long war
Peace and order are finally in store

Insulin, Banting and Charlie Best
Famous Five, The Group of Seven’s quest

Dionne quints and Emily Carr
Country prepares for a Second World War

Big manufacturing across this land
And on Juno beach, we took a stand

O Canada, Canada One Five O
O Canada, Canada Cent Cinquante






NATO and the little big country that could
Newfoundland in 49, Joey Smallwood

Howe, Richard and the Arrow's fate
‎The St Lawrence seaway opens the lakes

First Nations vote, Medicare, CPP
Canadian Flag, Maple Leaf so free

Subway, Centennial and Expo
Stompin’ Tom, PM meets John and Yoko

Henderson’s goal and Anik 1
Montreal's big Olympic run

Lesage, Trudeau, Levesque and Clark
Wayne and Shuster just for a lark

The Charter, Gretsky and Terry Fox
Canadarm and the space shuttle rocks

The Hip Celine-Dion and Bailey gold
National-Aboriginal-Day, stories are told

Nunavut-NWT, a land so vast
Vancouver Crosby victory-goal at last

A new PM has the country's keys
The future to unfold, a sight to be seen
