Transcript: 

Verse 1: B stands for Briton that we love so well, R for her Royal Majesties, I for her Ideals which have kept us free, T for Trusty ships that sail the sea, O for the Oceans that those warships rule, N that we Never shall be slaves, For Britons always have protection, ‘Neath their flag that rules the wave.
Chorus: It’s the flag that will protects us It’s a dear old Red, White and Blue, For we’ll live for it, we’ll die for it, For our home and our country too, So come boys, give three British cheers And let your voices ring, Whil’st the Maple Leaf is our Emblem dear Hats off to the Flag and the King.
Verse 2: C for Canada the best of all, A for the Answer that we gave, N means we’ll Never let the old flag fall, A means Always ready for the fray, D means to save our flag we’ll “Do or Die”, A for our Allies ever brave And Canada stands by the Motherland And the flag that rules the wave.
