Since Canada Day is just around the corner, I thought I would repost this video. Nothing says Canada like Roy Payne’s I wouldn’t take a Million Dollars for a Single Maple Leaf. Enjoy!
I Wouldn’t Take a Million Dollars for a Single Maple Leaf
By Roy Payne
I’ve seen a lot of sadness in the countries of this world,
I’ve seen the starving faces of a million boys and girls;
I’ve walked the war torn countryside and the bloody battered streets,
Where young men fought and died because they wanted to be free.
And as I watch my children playing freely with their friends,
I thank God for this country, mister, that we’re living in;
There are no cries of fighting soldiers dying on our streets,
I wouldn’t take a million dollars for a single Maple Leaf.
When you think you’ve got troubles, you just listen to the news,
And I’m sure you’ll realize, my friends, your troubles they are few;
Compared to those of others in the countries of this world,
We live in a paradise, a rare and priceless pearl.
