Glorious Land

Love is glorious in this land
we shouldn't move, but stand
helping others and never making demands
we mustn't stop, but understand.

We walk together so happily,
this isn't everyone's destiny.
Soldiers fighting is the key
this hasn't come easily.

We are without a king,
so we don't have to sing
about how it might sting
if we weren't proud and welcoming.

Our flag is so beautiful
even though it's not very colourful.
We're all so very grateful
for land that's ever wonderful.

Here no one steals
since there's no killing seals,
where people won't keel
and there's plenty of deals.

We will always stand tall
and we won't dare stall,
as we survive it all
and we won't be small.

Canada is the glorious place,
where we don't dislike any race,
and there is no trace
of anger that's in this place.
