Back Catalog Song O Day -For Canada Day!


O Canada

Here is a song from my Dottie's Charm album

O CANADA (Canadian penny charm)

Lyric by Sara Marcus Music by Jill Sobule and Mike Viola

Video by Sara Zandieh

O Canada, you took me in Just beneath your native skin To the land we both belonged to years ago O pal of mine, how young it was Mountie you and Yankee cuz Dog days, adolescent fuzz Distortion, gain, delay

Oh Canada, you took me in, you took me in, you took me in, O Canada

A summer long, a lakefront green The profile of departed queen Sat sweating by mosquito screens In doors upon the wild You gave your heart, I deigned a glance It seemed so plain, but you thought fancy Saw through it. You were still a child

Oh Canada, you took me in you took me in you took me in O Canada

In my pocket, getting warm Like August in November In my pocket, getting warm A value-vacant ember Oh Canada

O Canada, your penny buys Not much more than a pair of eyes Red and cold like dragonflies It trolls the lake at dawn That’s how much our stories earn Worthless as a mountain fern Summer glows for fall to burn For fall to burn

Oh Canada, you took me in you took me in you took me in O Canada
