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 diddy eye di, boom diddy eye di
Boom diddy eye di, boom.

My heart grows sick for you
Here in the lowkands,
I will return to you
Hills of the north.
(Chorus)

Swift as the silver fish,
Canoe of birch bark,
Thy mighty waterways
Carry me forth.
(Chorus)

There where the blue lake lies
I'll set my wigwam,
Close to the water's edge,
Silent and still.

(Chorus)
Blue lake and rocky shore,
I will return once more,
Boom diddy eye di, boom diddy eye di
Boom diddy eye di, boom.
