Swimming, Swimming    Tune: Sailing, Sailing,

Swimming, swimming, [Forward strokes]

In the swimming hole. [Make circle with arms]

Sometimes it's hot, [Wipe brow]

Sometimes it's cold, [Wrap arms around yourself]

In the swimming hole. [Make circle with arms]

Breast stroke, side stroke, [Do strokes]

Fancy diving too. [Position as if about to dive]

Oh, don't you wish you never had anything else to do [Shrug and throw arms up]

But ...[Do song again, faster]

I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing

I'd like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony.

I'd like to hold it in my arms and keep it company.

I'd like to build the world a home and furnish it with love,

Grow apple trees and honey bees and snow white turtle doves.

I'd like to see the world for once all standing hand in hand,

And hear them echo through the hills for peace throughout the               

        land.

That's the song that I hear, let the world sing today.

A song of peace that echos on and never goes away.

It's A Good Time to Get Acquainted

[Tune : It's A Long Way to Tipperary]

It's a good time to get acquainted

It's a good time to know

Who is sitting close beside you

And to smile and say hello: "Hello"

Goodbye lonesome feeling,

Farewell glassy stare,

Here's my hand, my name is [say your name]

So put yours right there.

Let There Be Peace On Earth

Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me:

Let there be peace on earth the peace that was meant

to be.

With God as Creator, we're a family,

Let me walk with my family in perfect harmony.

Let peace begin with me; let this be my moment now.

With every step I take, let this be my solemn vow;

To take each moment and live each moment in peace

        eternally.

Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.

All Together Again

We're all together again, we're here, we're here,

We're all together again, we're here, we're here.

And who knows when, we'll be all together again?

Singing all together again, we're here!

 

Pass It On

It only takes a spark to get a fire going,

And soon all those around can warm up to its glowing,

That's how it is with Scouting,

Once you've experienced it;

You spread your joy to everyone,

You want to pass it on.

 

What a wondrous time is spring when all the trees are budding,

The birds begin to sing, the flowers start their blooming.

That's how it is with Scouting,

Once you've experienced it;

You want to sing, it's fresh like spring,

You want to pass it on.

 

I wish for you my friend, this happiness that I've found,

You can come join in, it matters not where you're bound,

I'll shout it from the mountain tops

I want the world to know,

The joy of friends has come to me,

I want to pass it on.

This Little Scouting Light

This little Scouting light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine.

        [Repeat twice more.]

Let it shine all the time, let it shine.

All around the neighborhood, I'm gonna let it shine. ...

Hide it under a bushel--NO!-- I'm gonna let it shine. ...

Don't you try to blow it out, I'm gonna let it shine. ...

All around this world of ours, I'm gonna let it shine. ...

Vive l'Amour

Let every good Scout now join in a song,

Vive la compagnie.

Success to each other and pass it along.

Vive la Compagnie.

Chorus

Vive la, vive la, vive l'amour,

Vive la, vive la, vive l'amour,

Vive l'amour, vive l'amour,

Vive la compagnie.

Come all you good people and join in with me,

Vive la compagnie.

And raise up your voices in close harmony.

Vive la compagnie.

A friend on your left and a friend on your right,

Vive la compagnie.

In love and good fellowship let us unite.

Vive la compagnie.

With friends all around us, we'll sing out our song,

Vive la compagnie.

We'll banish our troubles, it won't take us long.

Vive la compagnie.

Now wider and wider our circle expands,

Vive la compagnie.

We sing to our comrades in faraway lands.

Vive la compagnie.

Should time or occasion compel us to part,

Vive la compagnie.

These days shall forever enliven our heart.

Vive la compagnie.

Boom Chicka Boom

I says a-boom-chick-a-boom! [Group echoes.]

I says a-boom-chick-a-boom! [Group echoes.]

I says a-boom-chick-a-rock-a-chick-a-rock-a-chick-a-boom! [Group echoes.]

Uh-huh! [Group echoes.]

On Yeah! [Group echoes.]

This time! [Group echoes.]

We sing! [Group echoes.]

HIGHER!

Each time a leader adds a different variation such as: LOWER, WHISPER, LOUDER, TONGUE-IN-CHEEK, SEXY, GROOVY (COOL).

Bringing Home A Baby Bumblebee

[This song cycles so that certain verses can be repeated until the singers tire of it.]

I'm bringing home a baby bumblebee,

Won't my Mommy be so proud of me,

I'm bringing home a baby bumblebee,

Ooh, he stung me!

I'm squashing up my baby bumblebee,
 Won't my Mommy be so proud of me,

I'm bringing home a baby bumblebee,

 

Ooh, now its all over my hands!

I'm licking off my baby bumblebee
 Won't my Mommy be so proud of me,

I'm bringing home a baby bumblebee,

 

Ooh, that made me sick!

I'm throwing up my baby bumblebee
Won't my Mommy be so proud of me,

I'm bringing home a baby bumblebee,

 

Ooh, now the floor is all messy!

I'm scraping up my baby bumblebee
Won't my Mommy be so proud of me,

I'm bringing home a baby bumblebee,

 

Ooh, he stung me a again!

 

Variations:

I'm bringing home a baby rattlesnake,

Won't my darling Mommy really shake.

Ooh, he bit me!

I'm stomping on my baby rattlesnake, etc.

 

I'm bringing home a baby grizzly bear,

Won't my Mommy beat it out of there.
[One suggested scenario involves shooing off the bear; having to clean up after the mess (scat) left behind, and finally bring the bear back to clean up after itself.]

Deep And Wide

Deep and wide, deep and wide, there's a fountain flowing deep and wide. [Repeat.]

Sing the words as written the first time through. Then, instead of saying the word "deep", make a gesture (one hand above the other) to show depth. The next time, also show "wide" by speading hands out to the side for width. Continue with "fountain" (make a fountain-like gesture), and "flowing" (make a rippling gesture with hands moving from one side to the other at chest level).

Do Your Ears Hang Low?

[Tune: Turkey in the Straw, refrain]

Do your ears hang low, do they wobble to and fro?

Can you tie them in a knot, can you tie them is a bow?

Can you throw them o're your shoulder like a continental soldier?

Do your ears hang low?

 

Do your ears stick out, can you waggle them about?

Can you flap them up and down as you fly around the town?

Can you shut them up for sure when you hear an awful bore?

Do your ears stick out?

 

Do your ears stand high, do they reach up to the sky?

Do they droop when they're wet, do they stand up when they're dry?

Can you semaphore your neighbor with the minimum of labor?

Do your ears stand high?

 

Do your ears flip flop, can you use them for a mop?

Are they stringy at the bottom, are they curly at the top?

Can you use them for a swatter, can you use them for a blotter?

Do your ears flip flop?

 

Do your ears stretch wide, do they flap from side to side?

Do they wave in the breeze from the slightest little sneeze?

Can you soar above the nation with a feeling of elation?

Do your ears stretch wide?

Flea Fly

[Rhythm: Same as "Froggie"]

Flea.

Flea, fly.

Flea, fly, mosquito.

Swat 'em!

Calamine, calamine, calamine lotion.

Oh, no more calamine lotion.

Itchy, itchy, scratchy, scratchy, got one on my backy, backy.

Ohy, ohy, owwy, owwy, wish he'd go away.

Quick get the bug spray, I think he went that-a-way---shhhhhh! [Make can-spraying motions.]

 

Froggie!

Dog.

Dog, cat.

Dog, cat, mouse.

Froggie!

Itsy bitsy, teeny weeny little bitty froggie.

Jump, jump, jump, little froggie.

Spiders and flies are scrum-deli-icious.

Ribbit, Ribbit, Ribbit, Ribbit, Ribbit, Ribbit, Ribbit, Croak.

Actions: Set up a clap/lap-slapping rhythm, and repeat each line after the leader. On the first run-through, do it slowly; with each repetition go faster, until the audience tires.

[Audience echos each line and sets up clap/lap-slapping rhythm.]

Goin' on a lion hunt.

Goin to catch a big one.

I'm not afraid.

Look, what's up ahead?

Mud!

Can't go over it.

Can't go under it.

Sticks. [Snap fingers.]

Tree. [Make gestures climbing up and down.]

Gate. [Make gate-opening gestures.]

River. [make swimming gestures.]

Cave. [Go in it and find lion. Reverse all motions quicky to get home.]

Head and shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes.

Head and shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes.

Eye and ears, and a mouth and a nose.

Head and shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes.

Touch the appropriate body part each time it's mentioned. Second time: don't say the word 'head' aloud, but still touch it. Each verse thereafter, add another body part that you touch but don't mention aloud.
