Words and Music by O. Ormsby Clark.

My name is Minnehaha, Minnehaha.
Tho' the pale-faces call me Laughing Water;
And merrily I take my canoe upon the lake.
For you see I am the chieftain's daughter

My name is Minne, Minne, Minnehaha,
Ha-ha-ha-ha, ha-ha-ha-ha,
And merrily I sing as my bark-canoe I swing
Up and down the silver waters of the Waha.

When thro' the pines the moon is brightly beaming,
And the little stars are winking and a-blinking;
Oh. 'tis then I ply my oar, pulling bravely from the shore.
To watch the mountain-deer as they are drinking.-Refrain.

I listen to the breezes 'mong the branches,
See them swinging, see how they're swaying,
And I hear the robins red singing gaily overhead,
While in the wood the squirrels all are playing.-Refrain.

I waken with the merry birds of morning,
I linger by the silver-flowing fountain;
And singing all the day, for my heart is light and gay-
I wander to And fro along the mountain.-Refrain.

My name is Minnehaha, Minnehaha,
Tho' the pale-faces call me Laughing Water­I'm a merry, laughing maid of the mountain and the glade,
For you see I am the chieftain's daughter.-Refrain.
