Subject: RE: Help! a Girl Scout folk song?
Can anyone help me with yet another GS song? I can't quite remember it all, but I think it goes(except for the la la's..):

BIRTHRIGHT

We who are born in country places
Far from the city and shifting faces
We have a birthright no man can sell
And a secret joy no man can tell.

For we are kindred to lordly things
The wild ducks flight and la la la
Pike and salmon, bull and horse
The curlew's cry and the smell of gorse.

Pride of la, swiftness of stream
The magic of frost has shaped our dreams
No baser vision the spirit fill
Than to walk by right on the naked hill.

I checked the database, but didn't find anything.
