Lyrics

'Toronto - The World Lives Here'

Written By: Jim Sanderson

TORONTO TORONTO
- The World Lives Here-

F F/A
Toronto Toronto !
Bb F
The whole world lives here!
Bb F/A
Every race and culture
G C
From nations far and near
F F/A
We work and play and worship
Bb F
Together without fear
Bb F Dm
Toronto Toronto
Gm C7sus4 F
The whole wide world lives here

Toronto Toronto
The CN Tower soars
Above the Bay and Skydome
and peaceful Island shores

Majestic Bluffs in Scarborough,
Forests and ravines
Cold and crisp in winter
Green and bright in spring

Chorus:
Dm Am Bb F
Our early name was 'Carry Place' to proud first native sons
G C C/E
In trackless woods they hunt and fish until the white man comes
Dm Am Bb F
Then Lord and Lady Simcoe and settlers arrive
G C C7
They set up camps to east and west and struggle to survive

Toronto Toronto!
Today the world lives here
We speak the world's language
From nations far and near

Caribana, Pride Day,
Sculptures to admire
Chinese Lantern, Dragon Boat
Festival of Fire

Toronto Toronto!
Our cultures make us strong
From Singapore to Kensington
Mumbai to Vietnam.

Christian, Jew and Muslim
German, Tamil, Sikh
Russian, Scottish, Afghan
Bhuddist, Hindu, Greek

Toronto Toronto!
We are the whole world here
Every race and culture
From nations far and near

Toronto Toronto!
Bright home for you and me

Our shining star
On sparking lake

Together... strong and free...
