We salute you Woodlandia,

For freedom from Canada.

We claimed you from Her Majesty,

We named you after all the trees.

We salute you Woodlandia,

Freedom, Freedom, Freedom, yeah!

Our nation matters not in size,

A piece of northern paradise.

We salute you Woodlandia...

Woodlandia! Woodlandia! Woodlandia!

Pour la liberté du Canada.

Nous vous avons réclamé de Sa Majesté,

Un morceau de paradis nordique.
