Talk of trouble is sent through the country

And we need an army

To fight for the right

Young men enlist and are sent to the battle

To fight the offender and help our allies

And the young men cry, *”Oh Canada,

We’ll gladly go and fight for thee.”

And the young men cry, “Oh Canada,

We’ll fight to keep you free.”

The battle’s raging

Gun fire is blazing

A tired young soldier is clinging to life

He’s ordered on

And obeys by advancing

No hope of returning from the enemy fire                 

And the soldier cries, “Oh Canada

If it must be so, I’ll die for thee.”

And the soldier cries, “Oh Canada

I’ll die to keep you free.”

Far away we have seen a great danger

And yet there’s a danger much greater within

The noise we make as we constantly bicker

Would hush not a whisper if we listen to hear...

All the thousands cry, “Oh Canada,

Is that why we have died for thee?”

And the soldiers cry, “Oh Canada,

We died to keep you free.”

And we all miss Oh Canada

The land where we all used to be

And we all are longing for Canada

The true north, strong and free

And the soldier cries, “Oh Canada,

be true and strong for me”.
