Chorus:
Shaped the future for you and me,
what a great man was Mr. SPB.
He showed us how to farm properly and
he started out the great Stampede with his Big Four peeps
also showed how to be when meat packing and thanks
for all the treesoh yes he’s Mr. SPB.

Verse 1:
Supplied the allies with meat
when he was still on his feet
he gave an orphanage
something to eat
inspired us to change
and make a rearrange and
get involved in activities
and excel with our abilities.

Verse 2:
SPB changed South Alberta
by wrangling sheep and others.
Started ranching and meatpacking
inspired us with the leadership by how he was caring,
love and all of the things
and even more of the stuff listed above.
