    "The Maple Leaf Forever"

    Has anyone ever heard this song? I just found it and I love it! Of course it was written a long time ago - but they have put new words to it. This video here has the original words. I read that it is the unofficial anthem of Canada.


    The new words are:

    O, land of blue unending skies,
    Mountains strong and sparkling snow,
    A scent of freedom in the wind,
    O'er the emerald fields below.

    To thee we brought our hopes, our dreams,
    For thee we stand together,
    Our land of peace, where proudly flies,
    The Maple Leaf forever.

    Chorus:
    Long may it wave, and grace our own,
    Blue skies and stormy weather,
    Within my heart, above my home,
    The Maple Leaf forever!

    From East and West, our heroes came,
    Throught icy fields and frozen bays,
    Who conquered fear, and cold, and hate,
    And their ancient wisdom says:

    Protect the weak, defend your rights,
    And build this land together,
    Above which shine the Northern Lights,
    And the Maple Leaf forever!

    Oh, Maple Leaf, around the world,
    You speak as you rise high above,
    Of courage, peace and quiet strength,
    Of the Canada I love.

    Remind us all our union bound,
    By ties we cannot sever,
    Bright flag revered on every ground,
    The Maple Leaf forever

    Lyrics Vladimir Radian
