Land of the Silver Birch
Home of the beaver
Where stilll the mighty moose
Wanders at will
Blue lake and rocky shore
I will return once more
boomdidi boom boom – boomdidi boom
High on a rockey ledge
There where the blue lake lies
I’ll set my wigwam
Close to the water’s edge
Silent and still
My heart grows sick for thee
Here in the low lands
I will return to thee
