Rounds

WHITE CORAL BELLS

White coral bells
Upon a slender stalk
Lillies of the valley
Deck my garden walk.
Oh, how I wish
That I could hear them ring
That could only happen
When the fairies sing.
LAND OF THE SILVER BIRCH

Land of the silver birch
Home of the beaver
Where once the mighty moose
Wandered at will
Blue sky and rocky shore
I will return once more
Boom did-y-ah-dah Boom Boom
Boom did-y-ah-dah Boom 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

(Land of the Silver Birch can be sung simultaneously
with My Paddle
for a wonderful effect.)

MY PADDLE
My paddle's keen and bright
Flashing with silver
Follow the wild goose flight
Dip, dip and swing
Dip, dip and swing her back
Flashing with silver
Swift as the wild goose flies
Dip, dip and swing


(note: "My Paddle" can be sung simultaneously with
"Land of the Silver Birch" for a wonderful effect.
Start "My Paddle" a fifth higher than
"Land of the Silver Birch")

MAKE NEW FRIENDS
Make new friends But keep the old
One is silver And the other gold.
I LOVE THE FLOWERS
I love the flowers and the daffodils
I love the blue skies and the sunny days
I love to live and live to love for all these wonderful things.
Boom dee ada Boom dee ada Boom dee ada Boom dee ada.

I love the rain and the cloudy days
I love the lakes and old natures ways
I love to live and live to love for all these wonderful things.

Boom dee ada Boom dee ada
Boom dee ada Boom dee ada Boom.

(One side continuously sings "boom dee ada" while the
other side sings ththe lyrics. It end up with everyone
singing "Boom" in unison).
SARASPONDA

Sarasponda, sarasponda, sarasponda ret set set
Sarasponda, sarasponda, sarasponda ret set set
Ah door ray oh, ah door ray boom day oh
Ah door ray boom day ret set set Ah say pa say
oh Boom da, boom da, boom da

Sung in a round after 1st chorus - 1/2 "boom da",
the other 1/2 Sarasponda - all join in at "Ah door ray oh"

KOOKABURRA

Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree
Merry, merry king of the bush is he
Laugh, Kookaburra; laugh,
Kookaburra Gay your life must be.

Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree
Eating all the gumdrops he can see
Stop, Kookaburra; stop Kookaburra
Save some there for me.
Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree
He fell down and broke his knee
Poor Kookaburra, poor Kookaburra
Glad it wasn't me.

LITTLE TOM TINKER
Little Tom Tinker he sat on a clinker
And he began to cry,
Oh “Ma, Oh Ma,
What a poor fellow am I” (repeat)

(can be sung as a 4-part round)
A clinker is a hot ember
ZULU WARRIOR

Group 3: I come a zumba zumba zy
Group 4: I come a zumba zumba zee

See him there The Zulu Warrior
See him there The Zulu Chief! Chief! Chief!
