CANADIAN SING-A-LONG!

Yeah I know that you wanna be Canadian, please. Even if in winter things tend to freeze. We've got the world monopoly on trees And our country's bordered by three different seas

Yeah I know that you wanna be Canadian, please. We invented the zipper, we've got expertise. We made insulin to combat disease Yeah I know that you wanna be Canadian, please

Chorus: Brits have got the monarchy. The US has the money. But I know that you wanna be Canadian

The French have got the wine and cheese. Koalas chill with the Aussies. But I know that you wanna be Canadian

Et si ce n'était pas assez. On a deux langues officielles: L'anglais et le franà§ais. Ooh la la

Yeah I know that you wanna be Canadian, please. Where else do you find mounted police? Or go to the hospital and not pay fees Yeah I know that you wanna be Canadian, please.

Chorus: Brits have got the monarchy. The US has the money. But I know that you wanna be Canadian

The French have got the wine and cheese. Koalas chill with the Aussies. But I know that you wanna be Canadian

The Greek chilled out with Socrates. Can't build a wall like the Chinese. But I know that you wanna be Canadian

In Kenya they have safaris. We've missed lots of other countries. But I know that you wanna be Canadian Category: Music
