Lyrics

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-diddy-boom-boom, boom-diddy-boom-boom,
Boom-diddy-boom-boom, bo-oo-oom

High on a rocky ledge I'll build my wigwam,
Close by the water's edge, silent and still;
Blue lake and rocky shore,
I will return once more.

Boom-diddy-boom-boom, boom-diddy-boom-boom,
Boom-diddy-boom-boom, bo-oo-oom

My heart grows sick for thee here in the lowlands
My heart cries out for thee, hills of the north;
Blue lake and rocky shore,
I will return once more.

Boom-diddy-boom-boom, boom-diddy-boom-boom,
Boom-diddy-boom-boom, bo-oo-oom

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-diddy-boom-boom, boom-diddy-boom-boom,
Boom-diddy-boom-boom, bo-oo-oom

Boom-diddy-boom-boom, boom-diddy-boom-boom,
Boom-diddy-boom-boom, bo-oo-oom
