Single Maple Leaf

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 thier friends
I thank God for this beautiful country that we're living in
There are no crys of fighting soldiers dying in 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 beautiful land
From the mighty Pacific Ocean to the shores of my Newfoundland
So tonight when your children pray down on their knees
Ask them to ask God to bless Canada, and forever keep her free

And as I watch my children, playing freely with thier friends
I thank God for this beautiful country that we're living in
There are no crys of fighting soldiers dying in 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
