Michael Mitchell “Canada in my Pocket”


I’ve got Canada in my pocket, a little bit of history A penny and a nickel and a quarter and a dime mean a lot to you and me It’s more than pocket money, they’re the symbols of our land They’re pictures of important things for which this country stands. The maple leaf, the maple leaf, is a beautiful sight to see It waves ‘Hello!” to us below from the branch of a maple tree And with every year that passes, it grows like you and me So should we all grow straight and tall like the lovely maple tree. I’ve got Canada in my pocket, a little bit of history A penny, and a nickel, and a quarter and a dime mean a lot to you and me It’s more than pocket money, they’re the symbols of our land They’re pictures of important things for which this country stands. The beaver, oh the beaver, is a beautiful sight to see He’s a happy, furry animal, like a teddy bear with teeth! He’s never, ever lazy, he works all night and day Building houses for his family, he’s got no time to play. I’ve got Canada in my pocket, a little bit of history A penny, and a nickel, and a quarter and a dime mean a lot to you and me It’s more than pocket money, they’re the symbols of our land They’re pictures of important things for which this country stands The schooner, oh the schooner, is a beautiful sight to see It’s a great big wooden sailing ship that can sail across the sea It brings to other countries the things their people need And brings back things like chocolate bars, and books for us to read I’ve got Canada in my pocket, a little bit of history A penny, and a nickel, and a quarter and a dime mean a lot to you and me It’s more than pocket money, they’re the symbols of our land They’re pictures of important things for which this country stands. The caribou, the caribou, is a beautiful sight to see He’s a really big, strong animal, I’m sure you’ll all agree He looks like Santa’s reindeer, and he loves it when the wind blows cold So he lives up North with the polar bears, ’cause he likes the ice and cold. I’ve got Canada in my pocket, a little bit of history A penny, and a nickel, and a quarter and a dime mean a lot to you and me It’s more than pocket money, they’re the symbols of our land They’re pictures of important things for which this country stands.
