  1. Hi Arden, this year our school is being renovated and all my cree stuff is in storage and also my cd’s, therefore I cannot readily locate it, can you post the link to this song? My grade 4 class is singing this song for our concert. Thank you

    1. Can you let me know if it works now?
      You can also type “chipmunk” into the search field (click the magnifying glass) – open the original post (from 2012) where the broken bit was fixed.
      And have fun!
