Da Moose

This is a repeat-after-me song.

Da moose,
Swimming in da water,
Not eating his supper,
Where did he go?
The moose is sleeping.

Da moose,
Floating in da water,
Not eating his supper,
Where did he go?
The moose is dead.

Da moose,
Sinking in da water,
Not eating his supper,
Where did he go?
The moose is decomposing!
The moose is decomposing!
The moose is decomposing!

Sally

This song repeats over and over, replacing Spark with different words. After Spark comes Brownie, then Guide, the Pathfinder, then Ranger, then Leader, then Mommy, then Grandma, then Angel, then ghost.

When Sally was a Spark,
A Spark,
A Spark,
When Sally was a Spark,
A Spark was she.

She went this way,
And that way,
And this way,
And that way,

When Sally was a Spark,
A Spark was she.

Final Verse:

When Sally was a ghost,
She went BOO!

ABC Grace

A B C D E F G,

I thank you for feeding me.

Brown Cow Grace

We thank the brown cow,
For our chocolate milk,
We thank the pig, oink oink!
For the bacon on the grill.

We thank the egg for the chicken,
And the chicken for the egg,
And the cook for our favourite meal!

Adams Family Grace

We fill our plates and dishes,
With food that is nutritious,
And all we’d like to wish is,
To thank you very much.

do do do do *snap snap*

Birds in the Wilderness

This song can be sung as a gathering song, or to call a group of late members to flagpole or circle. The ___________ is replaced with the missing party’s name, in the case of a gathering song, can just be replaced with “everyone else.”

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.
(or “waiting for everyone else”)

At a Time Like This

This song has a core verse and adds lines in between each time it is sung. The added lines are in brackets (-), and can be added from the top down each time the song is repeated. All previous added lines are sung as well. For example. The third time sung, it would go, “At a time like this, (bugga bugga) (tut tut) (nanu nanu).”

At a time like this,
(bugga bugga)
(tut tut)
(nanu nanu)
(whoop whoop)
(beep beep)
(WHOA YEAH!)

At a time like this,
(bugga bugga)
(tut tut)
(nanu nanu)
(whoop whoop)
(beep beep)
(WHOA YEAH!)

At a time like this,
Whoa!
I need my friends to help me.
(bugga)
(tut)
(nanu)
(whoop)
(beep)
(WHOA YEAH!)

The Martian Song

This song can be sung repeat-after-me style, or all together.

Once I met a Martian,
Who comes from Mars,
He ate all my M&Ms,
And my chocolate bars.

He banged on my tambourine,
And played on my kazoo,
And then he showed me somethin’,
He did the hula-hu.

A hula, hula, hula, hu,
ka tang, ka tang, ka tang,
A glippity, gloppity, glippity, gloo,
A hula, hula, hu.

So if you meet a Martain,
Who comes from Mars,
Let him eat your M&Ms,
And your chocolate bars.

Let him bang your tambourine,
And buzz on your kazoo,
And maybe if you’re lucky,
He’ll do the hula-hu.

A hula, hula, hula, hu,
ka tang, ka tang, ka tang,
A glippity, gloppity, glippity, gloo,
A hula, hula, hu.

This Little Guiding Light

This little Guiding light of mine,
I’m gonna let it shine.
This little Guiding light of mine,
I’m gonna let it shine.
This little Guiding light of mine,
I’m gonna let it shine.
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.

Hide it under a bushel, NO!
I’m gonna let it shine.
Hide it under a bushel, NO!
I’m gonna let it shine.
Hide it under a bushel, NO!
I’m gonna let it shine.
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.

Take my little light ’round the world,
I’m gonna let it shine.
Take my little light ’round the world,
I’m gonna let it shine.
Take my little light ’round the world,
I’m gonna let it shine.
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.

Don’t you phwoo (blowing out noise) my little light out,
I’m going to let it shine.
Don’t you phwoo my little light out,
I’m gonna let it shine.
Don’t you phwoo my little light out,
I’m gonna let it shine.
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.

This little Guiding light of mine,
I’m gonna let it shine.
This little Guiding light of mine,
I’m gonna let it shine.
This little Guiding light of mine,
I’m gonna let it shine.
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.
