Lyrics

Toronto - It's How we Live

Written By: Derek Pantling

Bay Street towers sway
to Yonge St's beat
fine mix of work with play
it's how we live

Barbequein' under tress
got music on the radio
grass stains on our knees
it's how we live

(bridge)

trollies rockin'
red rockets rollin'
quite places to heal your soul in
many cultures making their home in
fine fabric woven
one of a kind!

Toronto, it's what we give
Toronto, it's how we live
this town is growing in style
make a good thing great

T-O-R-O-N-T-O
T-O-R-O-N-T-O
T-O-R-O-N-T-O
It's how we live

(bridge2)

Hard drivin' mixed with compassion
alive majestic attraction
striving endless passion
tradition, fashion
bring on the new

Toronto - it's what we give
Toronto - it's how we live
No one can stop this smile
Make a good thing great

T-O-R-O-N-T-O- (that's the one)
T-O-R-O-N-T-O (you said it)
T-O-R-O-N-T-O
It's how we live

Toronto is my home

Written By: Derek Pantling

I've tried living in the country
sailed all seven seas
and i guess i've got to tell ya
they just didn't suit me

I've had the whole box of chocolates
sipped many special teas
but when i think of a town to call my own
there is only on delicacy

Chorus

Toronto, your're my home
no matter where I'm roamin'
I always feel right at home in
good ol Tdot, YYZ

I've tried following the seasons
all the way down to the keys
but when i think of a town to call my home
there's only one place for me

chorus

toronto, your're my home
no matter where I'm roamin'
I always feel right at home in
good ol Tdot, YYZ

bridge

People in other towns just don't understand
a Sunday afternoon at the Island
and how the ferry boat sails wind through your hair
to the backdrop of Queen st's vibe

Toronto, It's my home
no matter where I'm roamin'
Toronto, you're my home
If you're trying to track me down
you know where i'll be

Toronto you're my home
Toronto you're my home
If you're trying to track my down
You know where I'll be
good 'ol T.
YYZ
