Land of the Silver Birch

Land of the silver birch, home of the beaver
Where still the mighty moose, wanders at will


Blue lake and rocky shore, I will return once more
Boom, diddi, boom, boom,
Boom, diddi, boom, boom,
Boo ooo oo oom.

My heart is sick for you, here in the lowlands,
I will return to you, hills of the north


Swift as the silver fish, canoe of birch bark
Thy might waterways, carry me forth.


There were the blue lake lies, I'll set my wigwam,
Close to the water's edge, silent and still
