Verse 1

I have a friend who's not like you
Cause she likes to hang out with the caribou
But don't worry cause she's not like me either
Why?! Because she is a beaver!

Chorus

Who can start a campfire with a single spark? PARKA!
Who can chew through trees and eat their yummy bark? PARKA!
So come on everyone - it's a race to see new places
So get on your mark, get set and GO!
With Parka!

Verse 2

I have a friend who's never bored
Cause she opens her door and goes exploring
She's even seen a moose! You have to believe her!
Why?! Because she is a beaver!

Chorus

Who can start a campfire with a single spark? PARKA!
Who can chew through trees and eat their yummy bark? PARKA!
So come on everyone - it's a race to see new places
So get on your mark, get set and GO!
With Parka!

Dance section

Can you dance? Do the Parka Dance
Can you dance? Do the Parka Dance
C’mon!
Can you dance so fine that you go back in time?
Can you dance some more and then go explore?
Can you do the ducky dodge Wild Parka Lodge Shuffle?
Can we go all the way to Wood Buffalooooooooooooo?

Chorus

Who can start a campfire with a single spark?
Who can chew through trees and eat their yummy bark?
So come on everyone - it's a race to see new places
So get on your mark, get set and GO!
With Parka!

Verse 1

I have a friend who's not like you
Cause she likes to hang out with the caribou
But don't worry cause she's not like me either
Why?! Because she is a beaver!

Chorus

D’une seule étincelle elle allume un feu de camp, PARKA!
Elle aime bien danser tout autour en chantant, PARKA!
Attrape ton sac à dos, tes amis et ton chapeau
Relevons des défis! Prêts? ALLONS-Y!
Avec Parka!

Verse 2

J’ai une amie qui ne s’ennuie jamais
Elle croque la nature, savoure le passé
Elle a vu un orignal et même un loup!
Mais qui est-elle? C'est Parka le castor!

Chorus

Who can start a campfire with a single spark? PARKA!
Who can chew through trees and eat their yummy bark? PARKA!
So come on everyone - it's a race to see new places
So get on your mark, get set and GO!
With Parka!

Dance section

Viens danser la danse de Parka
Danse comme moi la danse de Parka
Toi qui chantes si bien, tape dans tes mains
Can you dance some more and then go explore?
Can you do the ducky dodge Wild Parka Lodge Shuffle?
Can we go all the way to Wood Buffalooooooooooooo?

Chorus

D’une seule étincelle elle allume un feu de camp
Elle aime bien danser tout autour en chantant
So come on everyone - it's a race to see new places
So get on your mark, get set and GO!
With Parka!
