9-1-1 HELP

Greater St. Louis Area Council

Tune “My Bonnie”

Emergencies they will answer,

They’re always a phone call away

They come when they’re needed most promptly

And for you they will most surely stay




We call on them when we need HE…LP

Medics are your friends and my friends

They answer their calls so fast

They come when they are needed so greatly

And always will stay to the last.


The firemen too answer calls

A fire is scary to see

But when they come oh so quickly

They put out the fire with glee


We often need a policeman

And 9-1-1 will get one there

Be sure that you know your address

Of this you should always be aware


I Am Proud-

Greater St. Louis Area Council

Tune “Yankee Doodle Dandy”

I am proud to be a Cub Scout

It makes me want to sing and shout

I wear a uniform of blue and gold,

It’s really a sight to behold

You would like to be a Cub Scout

I know without a single doubt

I do my best to do my duty

That’s what Cub Scouting is about.

Thinking Safety

San Gabriel, Long Beach Area, Verdugo Hills Councils

Tune: Clementine

In the kitchen, Dad was cooking,

Frying chicken in some oil.

Said he’d go out to do the shopping,

Just as dinner tried to boil!

Thinking Safety, I remembered,

Told him, “Dad! Turn off the heat!”

Using caution is more important

Than preparing supper meat.

At the table was a candle

Mom had lit to cheer the room.

Matches sitting on the counter

Made me feel a sense of doom.

Thinking Safety, I remembered,

Told her, “Mom, this I must teach,

Keep the matches and the lighters

Out of little sister’s reach!”

In the bedroom, brother studied,

Working oh so diligently,

Stereo, TV, heater, computer,

All plugged in the same circuitry.

Thinking Safety, I remembered,

Told him, “Bud, that’s not too wise!

You should unplug some electronics

Before that one connection fries!”

Fire prevention can be easy,

Just have care at every turn.

Use your good sense and some planning

To prevent unwanted burn.

Dial 911

San Gabriel, Long Beach Area, Verdugo Hills Councils

Tune: Three Blind Mice

Dial 911

Dial 911

If you are hurt

If you need help

If someone has fallen and can't get up

Run to the phone and pick it up

Stay on the line and don't hang it up

Help will come.

5. say “the end”.

I Wish I Were A Volunteer

Greater St. Louis Area Council

Tune “Oscar Meyer Weiner”

Oh, I wish I were a volunteer fireman,

That is what I’d really like to be.

‘Cuz if I were a volunteer fireman,

Everyone would look up to me.

I’d climb a ladder up high to save babies.

I’d battle fire, smoke and burning steam.

I’d wear my big, red fireman’s cap proudly,

And polish my badge until it gleamed.

I’d rescue cats from limbs in very tall trees

And do inspections very carefully,

I’d teach the kids to all be fire detectives

‘Cuz then my job would be so easy

By the Blazing Council Fire Light

Greater St. Louis Area Council

Tune “’Til We Meet Again”

By the blazing council fire’s light

We have met in comradeship tonight

Round about the whispering trees

Guard our golden memories

And so before we close our eyes in sleep

Let us pledge each other that we’ll keep

Scouting friendships strong and deep

‘Til We Meet Again

Fireman’s Song

Timucua District, North Florida Council

(No tune was listed in either spot I found this song.  So make one up or if you know – E-mail me.  CD)

Behold the noble Fireman, all dressed in red and black.

He climbs the tilted ladder with a rope upon his back.

An axe he carries by his side, a helmet on his head,

He goes to fight the fire, most powerful and dread.

He is our unsung hero, this man of brawn and might,

And to watch him fight a fire is a great and wondrous sight.

Fire Prevention

Baltimore Area Council

Tune: Clementine

Check your hallways, check your closets,
And underneath the stairwell, too.
For if you’ve piled lots of junk there,
A big fire may call on you.

Dirty paint rags, piled up papers,
Frayed extension cords won’t do.
Fire prevention is the answer,
All cub Scouts must follow through.

Prevent Fires

Baltimore Area Council

Tune: Are you Sleeping?

Prevent fires, prevent fires,
Do your part, do your part,
Check your house for hazards,
Check your house for hazards,
You’ll be smart. You’ll be smart.

Hunt for hazards, hunt for hazards,
Clean them out, clean them out.
Help protect your family,
Help protect your family,
Have no doubt, have no doubt.

Old Macdonald’s Fire

 Baltimore Area Council

Tune: Old McDonald Had A Farm

Old MacDonald had a farm, E-I-E-I-O.
And on this farm he had some woods, E-I-E-I-O.
With a chop-chop here, and a chop-chop there,
Here a chop, there a chop,
Everywhere a chop-chop.
Old MacDonald had some woods, E-I-E-I-O.

Then Old MacDonald lit a match, E-I-E-I-O.
And he was careless burning trash, E-I-E-I-O.
With a spark-spark here, and a spark-spark there,
Here a spark, there a spark,
Everywhere a spark-spark.
Old MacDonald burned his woods, E-I-E-I-O.

 (Sing this very slowly)
Through carelessness, he burned his woods, E-I-E-I-O.
Now, Old MacDonald has no woods, E-I-E-I-O.
With a ash-ash here, and a ash-ash there,
Here an ash, there an ash,
Everywhere an ash-ash.
Old MacDonald has no woods, E-I-E-I-O.

London’s Burning

Baltimore Area Council

(A Round)

London’s burning London’s burning,
Look yonder, look yonder,
Fire, fire! Fire, Fire!
And we have No water.

Emergency Call

Baltimore Area Council

Tune: Are You Sleeping?

Someone’s crying,
Hurt and crying
 911, 911
Tell them your location,
Stay calm and be patient
911, 911.
