Make New Friends

Categories // Girl Scout Songs

Make New Friends    

(This can be sung as a round)

Make new friends, but* keep the old,
One is silver and the other's gold.

A circle's round, it has no end,
That's how long I want to be your friend.

Friendships come and friendships go,
But we'll be together, this I know.

You'll need me and I'll need you,
And together we will make it through.

On the Loose

Categories // Girl Scout Songs

On the Loose


Did you ever watch the sunrise turn the sky completely red,
Have you slept beneath the moon and stars, a pine bough for your bed
Did you sit and talk with friends, though a word was never said,
Then you're just like me and you've been on the loose.

CHORUS
On the loose to climb a mountain,
On the loose where I am free.
On the loose to live my life, the way I think my life should be,
For I've only got a moment and a whole world yet to see.
I'll be looking for tomorrow on the loose.

There's a trail that I'll be hiking just to see where it might go.
Many places yet to visit, many people yet to know,
For in following in my dreams, I will live and I will grow,
On a trail that's waiting out there on the loose.

Chorus

So in search of love and laughter, I'll be traveling cross this land
Never sure of where I'm going, for I haven't got a plan,
So in time when you are ready, come and join me and take my hand,
And together we'll share life out there on the loose.

Chorus

In this world that I am traveling, I will think of you this way,
Remembering your smile, for it seems like yesterday
When we slept beneath the stars, and we dreamed about this day
Now we have come together on the loose.

Chorus

Do the trees in the forest make you sit and think of love?
Does it take you twenty times or more to count the stars above?
For I'm here now and I like it and the hours melt away,
And if I want I'll stay here another day.

Chorus

As I sit and watch the sunset and the daylight softly fades,
I am thinking of tomorrow and the friendships we have made.
I will value them for always and I hope you'll do the same,
And forever we'll explore life on the loose.

Chorus

Now the moon is softly glowing and the stars are twinkling bright
Our laughter and our friendship have cleared this cloudy night
Come and join our flickering campfire, come and sing our happy songs
And together we'll share life out on the loose.

Dreams

Dreams


CHORUS
May all of your dreams bloom like daisies in the sun
May you always have stars in your eyes
May you not stop running not until your race is run
And may you always have blue skies

A dream is something all your own to keep within your heart
To build on when you're sad, or when you're world's been torn apart
A dream is something all your own that no one else can steal
A dream is something you can make come real

Chorus

You can share a laugh with any stranger you may meet
You can share your money with a beggar on the street
But you can only share a dream when love has set it free
Please won't you share yours with me.

Brownie Smile Song

Brownie Smile Song  


I've got something in my pocket
That belongs upon my face,
I keep it very close to me in a most convenient place.

I'm sure you couldn't guess it if you guessed a long, long while,
So I'll take it out and put it on,
It's a great big Brownie Smile!

Today

Today


CHORUS
Today while the blossoms still cling to the vine,
I'll taste your strawberries, I'll drink your sweet wine.
A million tomorrows shall all pass away,
Ere I forget all the joy that is mine, today.

I can't be contented with yesterday's glory,
I can't live on promises winter to spring.
Today is the moment and now is the story,
I'll laugh and I'll cry and I'll sing.

Chorus

I'll be a dandy and I'll be a rover,
You'll know who I am by the songs that I sing.
I'll feast at your table, I'll sleep in your clover,
Who cares what tomorrow may bring.

Chorus

On My Honor

Categories // Girl Scout Songs

On My Honor


On my honor I will try
There's a duty to be done and I say aye
There's a reason here for a reason above
My honor is to try and my duty is love

People don't need to know my name
If I do any harm, then I'm to blame
When I help another, I help me
If I've opened up my eyes to see

I've tucked away a song or two
If you're feeling low, there's one for you
When you need a friend, then I will come
There are many more where I come from

Come with me where a fire burns bright
We can even see better in a candle's light
But we find more meaning in a campfire's glow
Than we'd ever learn in a year or so

We've made a promise to always keep
And the day is done before we sleep
We'll be Girl Scouts together and when we're gone
We'll still be trying and singing this song

All My Life's a Circle

Categories // Girl Scout Songs

All My Life's a Circle


All my life's a circle, sunrise and sundown
The moon rolls through the night time
Till the day break comes around
All my life's a circle, but I can't tell you why
The seasons spinning round again
The years keep rolling by.

It seems like I've been here before, I can't remember when
But I got this funny feeling
That we'll all be back again
There's no straight lines that make up my life
And all my roads have bends
There's no clear cut beginnings, and so far no dead ends.

I've found you a thousand times, I guess you've done the same
But then we'll lose each other
It's just like children's games
As I see you here again, the thought runs through my mind
Our friendships like a circle,
Let's go round one more time.
