Logging – What does it mean?

logging_-_vocabulary

I suggest you to watch this video, it will help you remember these words. It’s a Canadian folk song.
Canada vignettes: “Log’s drivers waltz”.

If you ask any girl from the parish around,
What pleases her most from her head to her toes;
She’ll say, “I’m not sure that it’s business of yours,
But I do like to waltz with a log driver.”

For he goes birling down a-down white water,
That’s where the log driver learns to step lightly;
It’s birling down, a-down white water,
A log driver’s waltz pleases girls completely.

When the drive’s nearly over, I like to go down
To see all the lads as they work on the river;
I know that come evening they’ll be in the town,
And we all want to waltz with a log driver.

For he goes birling down a-down white water,
That’s where the log driver learns to step lightly;
It’s birling down, a-down white water,
A log driver’s waltz pleases girls completely.

To please both my parents I’ve had to give way,
And dance with the doctors and the merchants and lawyers;
Their manners are fine, but their feet are of clay,
And there’s none with the style of a log driver.

For he goes birling down a-down white water,
That’s where the log driver learns to step lightly;
It’s birling down, a-down white water,
A log driver’s waltz pleases girls completely.

Now I’ve had my chances with all sorts of men,
There’s none is so fine as my lad on the river;
And when the drive’s over, if he asks me again,
I think I will marry my log driver.

For he goes birling down a-down white water,
That’s where the log driver learns to step lightly;
It’s birling down, a-down white water,
A log driver’s waltz pleases girls completely.

Birling down, a-down white water,
A log driver’s waltz pleases girls completely.
