SONGS

Baloo Skies
Tune – Caissons Go Rolling Along

From the clouds to the ground
Ba-loo Skies are all around
As we study and look in the air
Will it rain?  Will it snow?
Use your book and you will know

Let’s get going the day will be fair
For rain, snow or sleet
It’s the fun of Cub Scouting
Whatever the weather may be
And when the sun is out
We will always shout
That Ba-loo skies will follow our Cubs
That Ba-loo skies will follow our Cubs

 

April Showers

(Tune: Frere Jacques)

April Showers, April Showers,
Bring May flowers, bring May flowers.
What do May flowers bring?
What do May flowers bring?
Allergies!  Allergies!

 

Bad Weather Action Song

(Tune:  If You’re Happy and you Know it Clap Your Hands)

If it’s raining and you know it, clap your hands.
If it’s raining and you know it, clap you hands.
If it’s raining and you know it,
Then your drippy clothes will show it,
If it’s raining and you know it, clap your hands.

If the mud is only knee deep, stomp your feet!
If the mud is only knee deep, stomp your feet!
If the mud is only knee deep,
And you wish that it were hip deep!
If the mud is only knee deep, stomp your feet!

If the wind is really blowing, shake your head!
If the wind is really blowing, shake your head!
If the wind is really blowing,
And your bald spot, it is showing,
If the wind is really blowing, shake your head!

If the temperature is falling, do all three!
If the temperature is falling, do all three!
If the temperature is falling
And your spirits are a-dropping,
If the temperature is falling
YOU WILL FREEZE! (shout this line) 

 

 

Campin’ In The Rain

(Tune:  Singin’ in the Rain)

I’m campin’ in the rain, just campin’ in the rain.
The tent and the campfire are soggy again.
The clouds in the sky are making me cry.
My waterlogged shoes will never get dry.

All the mud in the place is stuck to my face.
The frogs and the turtles are starting to race.
Oh, what should I do, I need a canoe.
A web footed weasel ran off with my shoe.

I’m campin’ in the rain, just campin’ in the rain.
The good doctor said I’ve got water on the brain.
I can’t light the fire, I’m stuck in the mire.
The lightning just knocked down the telephone wire.

I’m drownin’ in the rain, just drownin’  in the rain.
Won’t it please  stop raining, I hate to complain.
My sleeping bag’s wet, I’m starting to fret.
My life jacket wasn’t the thing to forget.

I’m campin’ in the rain, just campin’ in the rain.
What a glorious feeling, someone plugged the drain.
The pre-ci-pi-tate, will now dis-sip-pate.
The sun will soon dry up the puddle I hate.

No more campin’ - no campin’ in the rain.

Storm Clouds Go Rolling Along

(Tune: Caisson Song)

In the sky
On the ground
Weather signs are all around
As we study and measure them all.

Will it rain?
Will it snow?
Will there be a tornado?
Now get going and you’ll have a ball.

For it’s hing, hing, ping
In the fun of forecasting,
Write down your totals one and all!
And when the pressure’s low

You will always know
That those storm clouds go rolling along.
That those storm clouds go rolling along.

You Are My Sunshine

The other night dear, as I lay sleeping, 
I dreamed I held you in my arms,
but when I woke dear, I was mistaken,
and I hung my head and cried.

Chorus
You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
you make me happy when skies are gray
you'll never know dear, how much I love you,
please don't take my sunshine away. 

I'll always love you and make you happy
if you will only say the same
but if you leave me to love another
you'll regret it all some day

(Chorus)


You told me once dear you really loved me
that no one else could come between
but now you've left me and love another
you have shattered all my dreams.

(Chorus)
