Land of the Silver Birch

LOTSB.jpg
VERSE 1
Land of the silver birch, home of the beaver.
Where still the mighty moose wanders at will.
REFRAIN
Blue lake and rocky shore, I will return once more.
Boom de de boom boom, Boom de de boom boom, Boom de de boom boom, Boom.
VERSE 2
High on a rocky ledge I'll build a wigwam.
Close by the water's edge silent and still.
REFRAIN
Blue lake and rocky shore, I will return once more.
Boom de de boom boom, Boom de de boom boom, Boom de de boom boom, Boom.
