I’m A Scout
Tune – I’m a
I’m a little Tiger Scout,
And I have my parents, they’re helping me.
I’m a bigger Wolf Cub, with loyalty,
‘Cause my den leader is helping me.
Now I’m a Bear Cub, don’t you
And then next year I’ll be Webelos.
I’m a Webelos Scout, have no doubt,
And I can’t wait to be a Boy Scout
What a Game!
Tune: Ten Little
Uno, Candyland, Scrabble and
Chutes and Ladders and Monopoly
Battleship, Boggle, oh I’m Sorry
What an Outburst – Cranium.

Twister, Connect Four, Concentration
Scene It, Dominoes, here comes Trouble
Hi Ho Cherrio, Clue and Chess!!
The Games We Play
Tune – Clementine
There’s Monopoly, and Chutes
Even board games with a twist.
But the games that are the most fun,
Are the games we can’t resist.
We make them up and then we
tell our friends,
Sometimes running, sometimes chase.
By using our imaginations
These cool games you can’t replace.
Once we get started, we could
play all day
Except for when we stop to eat,
We have fun with all the games we play,
But boy at night, what sore, sore feet!
So let’s get started with
Tell me what you like to do.
Then we’ll figure out just how to play, and
A new game will soon debut.
Rotten Reeboks, dirty sweat
Generating toxic fumes,
I’ve seen flies dead, struck in mid air
Fatal venture to his room.
In my brother’s bedroom closet
Stinkarooning like refuse
Dwelt a size 10 pair of sneakers
With a smell you couldn’t lose.
Aging tennies, in a corner
Turning the air a bluish green,
Hope the county doesn’t visit
They’d condemn us sight unseen.
I’ve tried bug balm, lemon air
Even spray that smells like pine,
Must be something that can cut it,
Something strong, like turpentine.
Even weirdo, crazy mutt dog
Who has breath you can’t adore,
Makes a wide turn, cuz his eyes burn,
Every time he nears the door.
“What’s the big deal?” asks
ol’ big foot
None of his friends notice it.
“Proves they’re brain dead,” says my sister,
“Doesn’t surprise me a bit.”
“Not to worry,” says my father
“Could be money after all,
“Pentagon might pay a bundle
“For the secret to it all.”
(Tune: My Bonnie)
They gave me a suit and a number,
And sent me out on the field.
They gave me a ball called the pigskin,
And shoes with some cleats, toe and heel.
Muscles, and cramps,
wracking my body with pain, with pain,
I stand, wondering,
If ever I’ll do this again !
Next time they gave me a racquet,
Then sent me out on the court
Funny the things you encounter,
While trying to learn a new sport.
The ordeal was finally over,
At least, that’s what I thought.
When they shoved me the soccer equipment,
I fainted dead on the spot !
Cub Scout Sports Song
(Tune: My Bonnie)
My baseball went over the fence
My arrows are broken to bits
My volleyball been deflated
After riding a horse I can’t sit
Belt loops, belt loops,
I’ll earn my sports pin today, today.
Belt loops, belt loops;
My letter is not far away
My bicycle has a flat tire
My boomerang just won’t return.
They say that I’ve lost all my marbles
And I still haven’t gotten my turn.
My dog ate my ping pong paddle.
My badminton birdie has flown.
I sprained my right ankle while jogging
And was stranded ten mile’s from home.
They say that Cub Scout sports are fun.
Some day I would like to know.
I’ve been wandering around for an hour
Just waiting for my Den to show.
Bowlin’, Bowlin, Bowlin’
Bowlin’, Bowlin, Bowlin’
Keep those balls a rollin’
Keep those strikes a rollin’,
We’re laughin’ and a grinnin’
Cause our team is winnin’
Soon we’ll be in first place.
Head ‘em up, roll ‘em down
Roll ‘em down, make a strike
Make a strike, so we win,
Roll ‘em down, knock em off,
Get a mark, make a strike.
We’re gonna win tonight!
This is My Baseball
(Tune: This is My
This is my Baseball
I’ll share it with you.
This is my baseball
Bring your bat and mitt too!
I’m playing with my friends,
I’m gonna hit one home.
Cause this is my baseball
To share and to hold.
