Lyrics

Toronto my Home

Written By: Gisella Garofalo

I know a place, with a growing embrace
Generations of voices and freedom of choices
Where islands and towers give way to the powers
Of stories that lead you to find and discover

The dream of our fore-fathers, story be told
Log cabin origins, future unfold

Blue jays and highways and spar-k-ling waterways
Our sons and daughters, the pride of diversity
Happiness grows in Toronto, Ontario
Beautiful city of promise,
A place that I’m proud to call home.

Neighborhood villages, condos or cottages,
You’ll feel at home with the welcoming images
Safe and reliable, chic, undeniable
Visions from architects, true and original

Heroes of yesterday, paving the way
Claiming our city to give us this day

Blue jays and highways and spar-k-ling waterways
Our sons and daughters, the pride of diversity
Happiness grows in Toronto, Ontario
Beautiful city of promise
A place that I’m proud to call home.

History and heritage marking the water’s edge
Toast of the province and long standing patronage
Each day a blessing, the night effervescing
With street celebrations and festivals singing of

Strangers who willingly give you a hand
Breathtaking miracles gracing this land

Blue jays and highways and spar-k-ling waterways
Our sons and daughters the pride of diversity
Happiness grows in Toronto, Ontario
Beautiful city of promise,

A place that I’m proud to call home.
