Land of the silver birch
Home of the beaver
Where still the mighty moose
Wanders at will

Chorus:
Blue lake and rocky shore
I will return once more
Boom did-y-ah-dah
Boom did-y-ah-dah
Boom did-y-ah-dah, boom
My heart is sick for thee
Here in the lowlands
I will return to thee
Hills of the north
Swift as a silver fish
Canoe of birch bark
By mighty waterways
Carry me forth
High on a rocky ledge
I'll build my wigwam
Close to the water's edge
Silent and still

(note: Land of the Silver Birch can be sung simultaneously with My Paddle for a fabulous effect!)
