Take Me Out To The Forest
(Take Me Out To The Ballgame)
Greater St. Louis Area Council

Take me out to the forest.
Let me hike in the wild.
Show me a skunk and a few bear tracks.
I won't care if I never come back.
But it's look, look, at your compass.
If it rains, then it pours and your wet.
And it's ouch, slap, sting and you're bit
In the great outdoors.


The Tree Toad
(tune: Auld Lang Syne)
Will Rogers Council

A tree toad loved a fair she toad
That lived up in a tree.
She was a fair three-toed tree toad,
But a two-toed tree toad was he.
The two-toed tree toad tried to win
The she toad's friendly nod;
For the two-toed tree toad loved the ground
That the three-toed tree toad trod.

Now three-toed tree toads have no care
For two-toed tree toad love.
But the two-toed tree toad fain would share
A tree home up above.
In vain the two-toes tree toad tried;
He could not please her whim.
In her tree toad bower with her veto power,
The she toad vetoed him.


Song of my Shoes
(Tune: Battle Hymn of the Republic)
Mt. Diablo Silverado Council

My shoes have seen the glory of the growing of a Scout.
My shoes have been in water steppin' in and steppin' out.
My shoes have hiked through forest to the top of the mount;
My shoes are wearing out!

Groovy, Radical, and Awesome (repeat 3x)
My shoes are wearing out!

My shoes have seen the bottom of the dirty fishy creek,
My shoes have been all covered with the gooey, muddy cake,
My shoes have seen the some old socks for seven days this week,
My shoes do really stink!


My shoes are torn and tattered climbing fences packed in rust,
My shoes are stained and spattered with some yucky insect guts,
My shoes are oozing slime and fill my Mom with disgust,
My shoes have bit the dust!
