All Girl Scouts

(to the tune of the Generic Army Marching Cadence)

 

I don't know but I've been told,

All Girl Scouts are good as gold.

I am one, and I say it's true,

Scouting's great for me and you.

 

Chorus:

 

†††† Sound off: 1, 2,

†††† Sound off: 3, 4.

†††† Bring it on down: 1, 2, 3, 4, 1, 2, - 3,4

 

Daisy has a disc of blue,

They are Scouts that are brand new.

They are cute and they are sweet

Daisy Scouts are fun to meet.

 

Brownies have a disc of green

They are second on the scene.

They wear a uniform that's brown,

Their smile song can erase a frown.

 

Junior level is the next,

A yellow disk is on their vest.

They say that camping is big fun,

And they earn badges one by one.

 

Cadettes are teens that care a lot,

Their service projects hit the spot.

A white disc is the one they wear

The name Girl Scout they're proud to wear.

 

Senior discs are red, I know.

They are Girl Scouts on the go.

With Wider Opportunities,

Some Girl Scouts go overseas.

 

Leaders have no disc at all

They come all sizes, big and small.

They share their time and talents too.

They make Girl Scouting great for you.

Girl Scout Hearts

(same tune as the generic Army Marching Gadence)

 

I don't know but I've been told (repeat)

Girl Scout hearts are made of gold (repeat)

(leader) Sound off,

(girls) One two,

(leader) Sound off

(girls) Three four

(all) Sound off one two, three four.

 

We are Girl Scouts, it is true

We love life and so can you

Fun and learning, service too

Don't have time to feel real blue

 

Girl Scouts teach and Girl Scouts learn

Making campfires that really do burn

Tying knots and lashing trees

Studying those honeybees

 

Nature's fine but science too

Gives Girl Scouts new things to do

Chemistry, and computers, yes

'Cause learning's what we love the best.

 

Listen girls, now listen well,

Scouting's great, now come and yell,

Scouting's great it takes some time,

We even learn to do some mime.

 

Scouting's more than cookies now

Planes and trains and cars, oh wow

History and crafts too

Makes Scouts fun for me and you.

 

Join with us and have some fun

Learning stuff 'till day is done

Girls you too can be a Scout

Just like us, come on out.

Goin' On A Lion Hunt

 

(Leader sings a line, everyone repeats. During each verse, everyone slaps their

hands on their knees in a rhythm as if they were marching.)

 

Goin' on a lion hunt!

I'm not scared!

Look at all the beautiful flowers.

Oh-oh!

Tall, tall grass ahead!

Can't go over it!

Can't go under it!

Can't go around it!

Gotta go through it!

 

(everyone does actions as if parting long grass)

 

Goin' on a lion hunt!

I'm not scared!

Look at all the beautiful flowers.

Oh-oh!

Icky, sticky, mud ahead!

Can't go over it!

Can't go under it!

Can't go around it!

Gotta go through it!

 

(actions as if you were trying to slog through mud)

 

Goin' on a lion hunt!

I'm not scared!

Look at all the beautiful flowers.

Oh-oh!

Deep, wide, river ahead!

Can't go over it!

Can't go under it!

Can't go around it!

Guess we gotta swim it!

 

(actions as if swimming)

 

Goin' on a lion hunt!

I'm not scared!

Look at all the beautiful flowers.

Oh-oh!

Tall, tall trees ahead!

Can't go over them!

Can't go under them!

Can't go around them!

Guess we gotta climb them!

 

(actions as if climing up one side of a tree and down the other)

 

Goin' on a lion hunt!

I'm not scared!

Look at all the beautiful flowers.

Oh-oh!

Deep, dark cave ahead!

Can't go over it!

Can't go under it!

Can't go around it!

Gotta go through it!

 

(next verse is done very, very quietly, as if you were scared of the cave)

 

Goin' on a lion hunt...

I'm not scared...

Look at all the beautiful flowers...

Oh-oh...

Big, fuzzy nose ahead...

Two green eyes ahead...

Long, long whiskers ahead...

Long, sharp teeth ahead...

It's a LION!

RUN!!

 

(slapping on knees goes very fast, as if you were running... go through all the

obstacles in reverse order and as fast as you can, with more slapping of hands on

knees inbetween each obstacle.)

 

Up the trees! Down the trees! Run!!!

Swim the river! Run!!

Through the mud! Run!!

Through the grass! Run!!

HOME!

 

And here's another version of the song:

 

We're all going on lion hunt

I'm not scared

I've got a gun

And bulletts too

Oh-oh

Void ahead

Short grass - sh-sh-sh

 

Other Verses:

 

†††† Long grass: shhhh-shhhhh-shhhhhh

†††† Swamp: gloomp-gloomp-gloomp

†††† Lost: make your hands "run" up a tree, have to look around and then come

†††† back down

†††† Supermarket: scuse me-scuse me-scuse me

†††† Village: hello-hello-hello

†††† Lion: ahhhhhhh!

 

Then go through all the actions but in the reverse order

Here We Sit Like Birds In The Wilderness

(the perfect song to sing when you're waiting for a girl or a group of girls to come so the unit

can start an activity!)

 

Here we sit like birds in the wilderness,

Birds in the wilderness,

Birds in the wilderness.

Here we sit like birds in the wilderness

Waiting for ____________ to come.

 

Here we sit like bugs on a cedar log,

Bugs on a cedar log,

Bugs on a cedar log.

The Bear

(same tune as "The Littlest Worm")

 

The other day

I met a bear

A great big bear

Away out there! (repeat)

 

He looked at me

I looked at him

He sized up me

I sized up him! (repeat)

 

He said to me

"Why don't you run?

I see you ain't

Got any gun!" (repeat)

 

And so I ran

Away from there

But right behind

Me was that bear! (repeat)

 

Ahead of me

There was a tree

A great big tree

Oh, glory be! (repeat)

 

The nearest branch

Was ten feet up

I'd have to jump

And trust my luck! (repeat)

 

And so I jumped

Into the air

But I missed that branch

Away up there! (repeat)

 

Now don't you fret

Now don't you frown

'Cause I caught that branch

On the way back down! (repeat)

 

That is the end

There ain't no more

Unless I meet

That bear once more! (repeat)

 

And so I met

That bear once more

Now he's a rug

On my bedroom floor! (repeat)

 

 

The Princess Pat

(leader sings one line, others repeat)

(actions in brackets)

 

The Princess Pat (egyptian pose)

Light infantry (salute)

They sailed across (wave motion in front of body with one hand)

The seven seas (number 7 with your finger, then make a "C" with one hand)

They sailed across (wave motion)

The channel two (two hands tracing a channel, then number 2 on one hand)

And took with them (throw a sack over your shoulder)

A rick-a-bamboo! (trace a wavy figure in front of you going down, bend knees as

you go)

 

A rick-a-bamboo (same as before)

Now what is that? (shrug shoulders, hold out hands)

It's something made (bang one fist on top of the other)

For the Princess Pat (egyptian pose)

It's red and gold ("twirl" one arm down by your hip)

And purple too (flip hands as if you were saying "Oh my gosh!")

That's why it's called (cup hands in front of mouth, shout)

A rick-a-bamboo! (same as before)

 

Now Captain Dan (salute)

And his loyal crew (salute several times)

They sailed across (wave action)

The channel two (same as before)

But their ship sank (plug nose, one hand over head and waving as you bend knees)

And yours will too (point to others in the circle)

Unless you take (throw an invisible bag over your shoulder)

A rick-a-bamboo! (same as before)

 

A rick-a-bamboo (same as before)

Now what is that? (shrug shoulders, hold out hands)

It's something made (bang one fist on top of the other)

For the Princess Pat (egyptian pose)

It's red and gold ("twirl" one arm down by your hip)

And purple too (flip hands as if you were saying "Oh my gosh!")

That's why it's called (cup hands in front of mouth, shout)

(everyone together) A rick-a-bamboo! (same as before)
