SONGS

From the Cub Scout Song Book:
San Gabriel Valley-Long Beach Area-Verdugo Hills Councils

There are some great theme related songs for this theme in the cub Scout songbook -

It’s Cheese

I’m A Nut

I Like to Eat

Johnny Appleseed

Bananas, Coconuts And Grapes
Baloo’s Archives

This song is often referred to as the “Cub Scout National Anthem.’  But I would vote for “Duke of York.”  CD

I like bananas, coconuts and grapes
I like bananas, coconuts and grapes
I like bananas, coconuts and grapes
That's why they call me: TARZAN OF THE APES!

Sing the song through three or four times:

The first time loudly;

The second time softer
(except for the "Tarzan" part – always YELL that)

The third time even softer

And finally whispering

Remember, always yell the "Tarzan" part; the last time, no one makes a sound until all shout in unison, 'TARZAN …

Bazooka Bubblegum
Baloo’s Archives
Heard first at Northern NJ Council Pow Wow 2005
Taught to me by my Phil Staffer daughter, Darby

My momma gave me a penny
She told me to buy a henny
But I didn’t buy a henny

Chorus

Instead, I bought bubblegum.
Bazooka-zooka bubblegum
Bazooka-zooka bubblegum

My momma gave me a nickel
She told me to buy a pickle
But I didn’t buy no pickle

Chorus

My momma gave me a dime
She told me to buy a lime
But I didn’t buy no lime

Chorus

My momma gave me a quarter
She told me to buy some water
But I didn’t buy no water

Chorus

My momma gave me a dollar
She told me to buy a collar
But I didn’t buy no collar

Chorus

My momma gave me a five
She told me to stay alive
But I didn’t stay alive

Instead, I choked on bubblegum.
Bazooka-zooka bubblegum
Bazooka-zooka bubblegum

Gopher Guts
Baloo’s Archives

Great green gobs of grimy greasy gopher guts
Mutilated monkey meat, little birdies' dirty feet

Great green gobs of grimy greasy gopher guts
And I forgot my spoon!

There are many, many versions of this on the web.  Mine is one of the better ones.  But if it isn’t the way you remember singing it, look for others.  Just google, “Gopher Guts.”  CD

On Top Of Spaghetti
San Gabriel Valley-Long Beach Area-Verdugo Hills Councils
Tune:  On Top of Old Smokey

 

On top of Spaghetti,
All covered with cheese
I lost my poor meatball
When somebody sneezed

 

It rolled off the table
And on to the floor
And then my poor meatball
It rolled out the door.

 

It rolled in the garden
And under a bush
And now my poor meatball
Is nothing but mush?

 

So if you have spaghetti
All covered with cheese
Protect your poor meatballs
Should somebody sneeze?

 

Peanut, Peanut Butter, Jelly
San Gabriel Valley-Long Beach Area-Verdugo Hills Councils

You need to experience this song before you try to lead it.  The actions and sounds are a large part of this one.  CD

CHORUS: 

Peanut, Peanut butter, jelly
Peanut, Peanut butter, jelly
First you take the peanuts and you crunch them, crunch them

(Chorus)

Then you take the grapes and you stomp ‘em, stomp ‘em,

(Chorus)

Then you take the bread and you spread it, spread it,

(Chorus)

Then you take the sandwich and you eat it, eat it,

(Chorus)

Scout Camp
ScoutWeb South Africa
www.scouting.org.za

 

 . . Scout Camp, . . . Scout Camp

Chorus
Oh, I don't want to go to (Cub) Scout Camp.
Gee, Mom, I want to go, but they won't let me go;
Gee, Mom, I want to go home.

The busses that you ride in, they say are mighty fine,
But when they turn a corner, they leave the wheels behind.

Food Verses

The water that they have here they say is mighty fine,
But when you try to drink it, it tastes like turpentine.

The biscuits that they serve you, they say are mighty fine
But one rolled off the table and killed a friend of mine

The cocoa that they serve you, they say is mighty fine
It's good for cuts and bruises and tastes like iodine.

The chickens they have here they say are mighty fine
One jumped off the table and started marking time

The spaghetti that they serve you, they say is mighty fine
They rinse it the lake* and drain it on the line

Other Verses

The leaders that they have here, they say are mighty fine,
But when you get up closer, they look like Frankenstein.

The first aid that they give you, they say is mighty fine,
But if you cut your finger, you're left with only nine.

The spaghetti that they serve you, they say is mighty fine
They rinse it the toilet and drain it on the line

The tents/cabins that you sleep in, they say are mighty fine
But whoever said this has never slept in mine.

The toilets that they have here are the best that they can get
Last night my tent mate had to go, they haven't found him yet.

Soup, Soup, We All Want Soup
Baltimore Area Council
Tune: “Hail, Hail, the Gang’s All Here”

Soup, soup, we all want soup;
Needn’t stop to strain it,
Tip your bowl and drain it.
Hark, hark, the funny noise;
Listen to the gurgling boys.

Meat, meat, bring on the meat –
Fresh and juicy canned meat,
Ham and pickled pig’s feet.
Lamb chops and pork chops too,
Any kind of meat will do.

Pie, pie, we all want pie;
Coconut or cherry,
Peach and huckleberry.
Mince pie and apple too,
Any kind of pie will do.

Blue and Gold Pie
Baltimore Area Council
Tune: American Pie

Chorus

Eat, eat, all the Blue and Gold pie,
Brought my parents to the banquet,
And my Dad wore his tie.
And good old Cubs were eating hot apple pie.
Singing bring me one more piece of the pie,
Bring me one more piece of that pie.

 

Now for two years, I’ve been in the pack.
Those great times keep me coming back.
But Cubs grow fast eating with their den.
When the Cub Scouts sang at the Blue and Gold,
The hot pies, well they all turned cold,
And there’s no stove round, the cook was told.

 

The day the pies turned cold.
We started singing’ (Chorus)
I met the guy who cooked the food,
And he was in a rotten mood.
With no time left to cook more pies.
And the three pies that are number one,
Apple, cherry, and pumpkin.
They turned so cold they almost froze.
The day the pies turned cold.
We were singin’ (Chorus)


Hot Dog Song
Baltimore Area Council
Tune: Oscar Meyer Wiener Song

 

I wish I was a fat and juicy hot dog,
That is what I’d truly like to be.
‘Cause if I were a fat and juicy hot dog,
Someone’d always be in love with me.

Have the leader keep this going by calling for everyone to sing it louder, then faster.  Then as if your mouth was full .

Mama’s Soup Surprise
Baltimore Area Council
Tune: Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

 

Oh, when I was just a little kid,
I never liked to eat,
Mom would put things on my plate,
I’d dump them at her feet.

 

Then one day she made this soup,
I ate it ‘till I burst.
I asked her what was in it,
Then I knew it was the worst!

Chorus:

Oh, chicken lips and lizard hips
And alligator eyes,
Monkey legs and buzzard eggs
And salamander thighs,
Rabbit ears and camel hair
And tasty toenail pies,
Stir them all together,
You’ve got Mama’s Soup Surprise!

 

I went into the bathroom
And I stood before the sink,
I said, “I’m feeling mighty ill,
My stomachs in a kink!”
Mama said, “I’ve got the cure
To make you feel just great!”
She said it was so good for me,
And this is what I ate

Chorus

On Top Of My Pizza
Baltimore Area Council
Tune: On Top Of Old Smokey

On top of my pizza
All covered with sauce
Could not find the mushrooms
I think they got lost.

I looked in the closet
I looked in the sink
I looked in the cup that
Held my cola drink.

I looked in the sauce pan
Right under the lid
No matter where I looked
Those mushrooms stayed hid.

Next time you make pizza
I’m begging you please
Do not give me mushrooms
But just plain old cheese.


Bug Juice
Baltimore Area Council
Tune- On Top of Old Smokey

At camp with the Cub Scouts
They gave us a drink.
We thought it was Kool-Aid,
Because it was pink.

The thing that they told us
Would’ve grossed out a moose,
That great-tasting pink drink
Was really Bug Juice.

It looks fresh and fruity
Like tasty Kool-Aid
But the bugs that are in it
Were murdered with Raid?

We drank it by gallons,
We drank it by tons,
And then the next morning
We all had the runs.

Next time you drink Bug Juice,
And a fly drives you mad,
He’s just getting even
‘Cause you swallowed his dad!
