Hey, I’m not a lumberjack, or a fur trader….
I don’t live in an igloo or eat blubber, or own a dogsled….
and I don’t know Jimmy, Sally or Suzy from Canada,
although I’m certain they’re really really nice.
I have a Prime Minister, not a president.
I speak English and French, not American.
And I pronounce it ‘about’, not ‘a boot’.
I can proudly sew my country’s flag on my backpack.
I believe in peace keeping, not policing,
diversity, not assimilation,
and that the beaver is a truly proud and noble animal.
A toque is a hat, a chesterfield is a couch,
and it is pronounced ‘zed’ not ‘zee’, ‘zed’ !!!!
Canada is the second largest landmass!
The first nation of hockey!
and the best part of North America
My name is Joe!!
And I am Canadian!!!

And Iâ€™m proud to be an American where at least I know Iâ€™m free.
And I wonâ€™t forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.
And Iâ€™d gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today.
â€˜Cause there ainâ€™t no doubt I love this land God bless the U.S.A.
You get the best of both worlds, Joe. Don’t forget that.
