Transcript: 

Verse 1: Proud is the heart of the soldier boy, Bravely he marches to war, Britain’s Glory to defend, As in days of yore, Far o’er the sea with the foe at hand, Shoulder to shoulder we’ll stand, “Onward”, will the watchword be, For our King and our Country.
Chorus: We’re from Canada, we’re from Canada, A land beyond compare, Where the sun shines bright and the stars at night, Look down on our fields so fair On to victory, on to victory, We will help to fight the foe, And the Maple Leaf is our Emblem dear, As marching on we go.
Verse 2: When Britain’s conquer’d o’er ev’ry foe, Victors on land or on sea, We’ll return with hearts aglow, To our land so free, Back to the loved ones we hold so dear, Sorrows and grief disappear, For our duty has been done, To our King and Country.
