"Smitten with the Mitten" Words and music by Scott Richard Cooley Copyright © ℗ 2014 by Scott Richard Cooley (U.S. citizen, born 1967, CAE/IPI No. 345.88.02.44). All rights reserved. Verse 1 The sun sets on one side, and on the other it rises Painting pretty pictures on watery horizons The Native Americans, the French, then all the rest Have settled in to make our state the best Verse 2 Kalkaska sand, a rare soil in this land The state that is shaped like a mitten on your hand The Painted Turtle wanders this fertile ground Where state parks and forests can always be found Verse 3 White Pines in straight lines, planted long ago with care In the sky they rise over a hundred feet in the air The Apple Blossom flowers are pretty in pink And we never run out of fresh water to drink Chorus: I’m smitten with the mitten, it’s our happy home With great lakes and great times, in cars and boats we roam If our insect was the love bug, then surely I've been bitten I’m a Michigander, ‘cause I’m smitten… with the mitten Verse 4 The Greenstone gem from Isle Royale Is the crown jewel of an island unspoiled The Petoskey stone, its namesake it’s home Can be found on its beaches when carefully combed Verse 5 With islands and waterfalls and rocky shores so nice It’s a water winter wonderland, a true paradise The great lakes are awesome, surrounding us all Lighthouses lead ships in from the squalls Verse 6 In our woods are wild turkey and white tailed deer Wildlife is plentiful and protected here Where mastodons once roamed, and wolverines called home The Dwarf Lake Iris, grows wild near limestone Chorus: I’m smitten with the mitten, it’s our happy home With great lakes and great times, in cars and boats we roam If our insect was the love bug, then surely I've been bitten I’m a Michigander, ‘cause I’m smitten… with the mitten Verse 7 The Robin’s striking beauty is a site we all treasure Just like the fall colors, both seasonal pleasures The Brook Trout swim about throughout the state A fisherman’s paradise in streams, rivers and lakes Verse 8 When it comes to automobiles, our state is the hub Their wheels bring prosperity, passion and love Our peninsulas can be seen from up high on a ridge Joined by the mighty Mackinaw Bridge Verse 9 From the song of Hiawatha to the Motown sound Up the Porcupine mountains to the Lake of the Clouds When northwinds blow cold, we get lake effect snow Skiing, snowmobiling, and sledding we go Chorus: I’m smitten with the mitten, it’s our happy home With great lakes and great times, in cars and boats we roam If our insect was the love bug, then surely I've been bitten I’m a Michigander, ‘cause I’m smitten… with the mitten
