I've Got That Scouting Spirit

I've got that Scouting spirit up in my head,
up in my head, up in my head.
I've got that Scouting spirit up in my head,
up in my head to stay.

3. I've got that Scouting spirit down in my feet.
4. I've got that Scouting spirit all over me.
 

Happy Wanderer

I love to go a-wandering
along the mountain track,
And as I go,
I love to sing
My knapsack on my back.

Chorus
Valdaree, valdarah, valdaree,
Valdarah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha
Valdaree, valdarah
My knapsack on my back.

I love to wander by the stream
that dances in the sun
so joyously
it calls to me
"Come join my happy song."

I tip my hat to all I meet,
and they wave back to me
The blackbird call
so load and sweet
from every greenwood tree.

High overhead the Skylark wings.
He never stays at home.
And just like me,
as over the world he roams.

Oh may I go a-wandering
until the day I die.
Oh may I always
laugh and sing
beneath God's clear blue sky.

Chorus
 

I'm Happy When I'm Hiking

Tramp, tramp, tramp, tramp,
tramp, tramp, tramp, tramp,
I'm happy when I'm hiking,
pack up-on my back
I'm happy when I'm hiking
Off the beaten track.
Out in the open country,
that's the place for me.
With a true Scouting friends
to journey's end,
ten, twenty, thirty, forty, fifty miles a day.
Tramp, tramp, tramp, tramp,
tramp, tramp, tramp, tramp.
 

Be Kind To Your . . . Scouting Friends

[Tune: Stars and Stripes Forever]

Be kind to your . . . Scouting friends,
That's a pledge from one Scout to another.
Be kind to your leaders today,
'Cause for helping they don't get any pay.
Be kind to your neighbors and friends,
'Cause by caring you follow Scouting's letter.
. . . Scouting and friendship are grand,
And as we grow, the world will know,
We've made things better.

On My Honor

On my honor, I'll do my best,
to do my duty to God.
On my honor, I'll do my best,
to serve my country as I may.
On my honor, I'll do my best,
to do my good turn each day,
to keep my body strengthened,
to keep my mind awakened,
to follow paths of righteousness,
On my honor, I'll do my best.
 

Philmont Hymn

Silver on the sage, Wind in whispering pines,
Starlit skies above, Eagles soaring high,
Aspen covered hills, Purple mountains rise,
Country that I love. Against an azure sky.
Philmont Here's thee, Philmont here's to the,
Scouting Paradise, Scouting Paradise,
Out in God's country, tonight Out in God's country Tonight.

Scout Vespers

Softly falls the light of day,
While our campfires fade away.
Silently each Scout should ask:
Have I done my daily task?
Have I kept my honor bright?
Can I guiltless sleep tonight?
Have I done and have I dared,
Everything to be prepared?

Day is Done (Taps)

Day is done, gone the sun,
From the lake, from the hills, from the sky;
All is well, safely rest, God is nigh.

Fading light, dims the sight,
And a star gems the sky, gleaming bright.
From afar, drawing nigh, falls the night.

Thanks and praise, for our days,
'Neath the sun, 'neath the stars, neath the sky;
As we go, this we know, God is nigh.

Sun has set, shadows come,
Time has fled, Scouts must go to their beds
Always true to the promise that they made.

While the light fades from sight,
And the stars gleaming rays softly send,
To thy hands we our souls, Lord, commend.

God Bless My Underwear
[Tune: God Bless America]

God bless my underwear, my only pair.
Stand beside them, and guide them,
Through the rips, through the holes, through the tears.
From the washer, to the dryer, to the clothesline in the air.
God bless my underwear, my only pair.

Scout WETspers
Softly falls the rain today
As our campsite floats away
Silently, each Scout should ask
Did I bring my SCUBA mask?
Have I tied my tent flaps down,
Learned to swim so I won't drown,
Have I done, and will I try
Everything to keep me dry?
 
 

THE WORM SONG
Nobody likes me, everybody hates me, I'm gonna eat some worms,
big fat juicy ones, small skinny slimy ones, see how the big ones squirm
First you bite the heads off then you suck the juice out then you throw
the skins away.  Nobody knows how I survive on worms three times a day.
The first one was easy, the second the squeezy, the third one got caught
in my throat.  Nobody knows how I survive on worms three times a day.
