* Many Guides and Guides sing this song as
"There was a Crazy Moose". There are many variations and motions. As Scouts, the polite thing to do is REPEAT THE SONG the way the SONGLEADER sings it!
Our 2014 PAXJAM travelers, accompanied by Ms Freda Moose (the Moose who went to England) met the West Yorkshire Brownies visiting PAX lodge for UK Brownie 100 anniversary and pinning ceremony- they met Freda the Moose, and sang the Moose Song with us! (See the story of Freda the Moose who went to England on her own page!)
Another fun song: "Zombie Moose"
In honor of Canada, ancestral home of "Fred the Moose", the beautiful song 'Land of the Silver Birch" (where still the Mighty Moose wanders at will) - performed by GS and GG song leaders
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 Yada, Boom Diddy Yada,
Boom Diddy Yada 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
Thy mighty waterways carry me forth
There where the blue lake lies, I'll set my wigwam
Close to the water's edge, silent...and still
