Yass, dat is de way Victoriaw fin' us dis
Sometam we mak' fuss about noting, but it's all
on de familee —
An' w'enever dere's danger roun' her, no matter on
Sea or lan',
She'll fin' dat les Canayens can fight de sam
as bes' Englishman!
An' onder de flag of Angleterre so long as dat
flag was fly,
Wit' deir English leader, les Canayens is satisfy
leev' an' die —
Dats de message our fader geev' us w'en day're
fallin' on Chateaugay
An' de flag was kipin' dem safe den, dat's de
wan we will kip alway!
