Titanic


Oh they built the ship Titanic to sail the ocean blue, and they said it was a ship that the sea could not get through, but on her maiden voyage, an iceberg hit her side. It was sad when the great ship went down...

CHORUS
Oh. It was sad. How said? SO SAD! TOO BAD!
It was sad when the great ship went down to the bottom of the, husbands and wives, little children lost their lives! It was sad when the great ship went down

Well they were not far from shore, say a thousand miles or more, and the rich refused to associate with the poor, so they sent them down below where they’d be the first to go. It was sad when the great ship went down.

Chorus

Oh, the heroes saved the weak, as the ship began to leak, and the band struck up with The Lord take me Abide, Little children wept and cried as the waves crashed o'er the side. It was sad when the great ship went down.

Chorus

Well the cook he came on deck when he heard them holler HECK! For he thought it was the food that put um in the mood, when he saw them jumpin' oar, he knew they'd eat no more. It was sad when the great ship went down.

Chorus

Well the captain came on deck with a tear in his eye, as the last boats left he waved them all goodbye, and he knew he made a slip, so he went down with the ship. It was sad when the great ship went down.

Chorus

Well they built another ship, called the SSS 42! The bow was painted red and the stern was painted blue, then they christened her with beer as she sank right off the pier. It was sad when the great ship went down.

Chorus
Oh it was sad when the great ship went down!!!

When I First Came to This Land

When I First Came to This Land


When I first came to this land,  
I was not a wealthy man,  
So I built myself a shack,  
And I did what I could.  
And I called that shack, break my back,  
Oh, the land was sweet and good,and I did what I could.  
 
When I first came to this land,  
I was not a wealthy man,  
So I got myself a wife,  
And I did what I could,  
And I called that wife, scourge of my life,  
And I called that shack, break my back,  
Oh, the land was sweet and good, and I did what I could.  
 
When I first came to this land,  
I was not a wealthy man,  
So I got myself a donkey,  
And I did what I could.  
And I called that donkey, horse gone wonkey,  
And I called that wife, scourge of my life,  
And I called that shack, break my back,  
Oh, the land was sweet and goodand I did what I could.  
 
When I first came to this land,  
I was not a wealthy man,  
So I got myself a cow,  
And I did what I could.  
And I called that cow, no milk now,  
And I called that donkey, horse gone wonkey,  
And I called that wife, scourge of my life,  
And I called that shack, break my back,  
Oh the land was sweet and good, and I did what I could.

We Are Boy Scouts


We are boy scouts
Trusted in our honor
Loyal and helpful
Friends to one and all

Ever courteous
Ever kind to animals
We obey our orders
Even though they're small

Always cheerful
Whistling to the raindrops
Careful and thrifty
Clean in thought and deed

So! Come on boys now
Don't forget we're
Boy scouts
Be prepared, be prepared
Keep in mind the law.

Cub Scouts Don't Wear No Socks

Cub Scouts Don't Wear No Socks


(Generally sung as a marching song, with the scouts echoing each line after a leader sings it.)

Cub Scouts don't wear no socks.
Saw them when they took them off.
Threw them in the washing machine.
That's how the laundry all turned green.
 
Cub Scouts don't wear no socks.
Saw them when they took them off.
Threw them in the garbage can.
Killed three rats and the garbageman.

Cub Scouts don't wear no socks.
Saw them when they took them off.
Threw them up into the air.
That's why the birds need Medicare.

Cub Scouts don't wear no socks.
Saw them when they took them off.
Threw them on the President's desk.
That's why the country's such a mess.

Scout Vespers


(To the tune of Oh Christmas Tree)

Softly falls the light of day,  
as our campfire fades 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 dare,  
everything to be prepared.
