Transcript: 

Verse 1: In the Province of Quebec What more could you expect When the call to arms was sounded far and wide, Our boys would enlist, we never did insist, Freedom is our Battle Cry.
Chorus: Then cheer friends cheer for our boys at the front, Then cheer boys cheer they will stand the battle’s brunt; When they get the Huns on the run, Then the end will surely come Freedom is our Battle Cry.
Verse 2: It’s great not to be afraid better still to be on parade When the bugle sounds the charge to one and all, The Huns will then retreat, for they surely will be beat Freedom is our Battle Cry.
Verse 3: We’re in the fight for freedom you know the reason why With flag unfurl’d we’ll show the world we’ll fight or die, When it’s nail’d to the mast, no enemy can pass, Freedom is our Battle Cry.
