<strong>The Anthem Lyrics</strong>

Eh, where you from Canada?

Everybody on the left

Everybody on the right

In the front and in the back

Let 'em know where you're from

[Chorus:]

I'm from the T dot Oh

Rep it everywhere I go

Rep it everywhere I go

Everybody from the cold

Everybody from the cold

This is where we're calling home

This is where we're calling home

I'm from the T dot Oh

Rep it everywhere I go

Rep it everywhere I go

Million people at your door

Million people at your door

This is where we're calling home

This is where we're calling home

[Verse 1:]

I'm from the T Dizzle Oh

Hot with the sizzle flows

Cold when the planes land in the dot oh

Home of the blocko, patois and proper english

Rep it like it's my gang, that's why I sing this

Bleed red and white like a Coca Cola Classic

Some people that I know have their couches in the plastic

Good people got blasted

So we pour a little liquor out and think about 'em while we plastered

Real figures here, never seen and Eskimo

Front in the wrong area, niggas might let it go

Yeah, I love where I'm from all 2.5 million

Sing out

[Chorus]

[Verse 2:]

I'm from the depths of Scarborough

One ways of Vaughan Road

Apartments of Flemingdon, shadows in the PO

Every area reppin' the home team

My Italians hold me down, Africans same thing

Portugese get it in, Filipinos rock with me

Nuff Trinis and Yardees holding the block with me

So many faces like we the Winter Olympics

Greatest city ever, after dark you better think quick

Club district, parking lot politicing

We got hotter women than any city admitting

We number 1, check out the figures we gettin

No apologies and never quitting

[Chorus]

[Verse 3:]

Regent, Jungle, Vaughan Road, Malvern

Chester Le, Rexdale let the fire burn

If you from Toronto let me see you put a hand up

Born alone die alone, but I'm never on my own

Don't watch no face, stay true is what I was shown

I'm a product of OG's and social workers

3 years of University and Lick's Burgers

Harlem Underground, black owned businesses

Big It Up Hats, and immigrants from long distances

Working class people and some others with some privileges

Any way you look at it we seeing past differences

Yo, I am multiculture

Hand on my ear listening like the Hulkster

And all I'm hearing is we the greatest around

To the grave I'm a rep my town

Yeah
