Sami People

They live in Scandinavia in the cold and the snow
And though little about them i can claim to know
Like the Eskimos they are quite a hardy race
Though to Eskimos to a different ancestry their lineage do trace
The wild and hardy reindeer they are known to tame
Sami people or Lapps for them another name
Where far less hardy people would die of the cold
They live and they prosper and they grow to be old,
Through cold regions of Russia, Finland, Sweden and Norway
they move here and there
And brightly coloured and beautiful clothing they wear
And they do not have a Homeland as such one might say
But they have their own cultures and they live their own way
Through their humble Villages the cold north winds blow
And so little about them i can claim to know.
