SONGS

Hey, Look Me Over
Northwest Suburban Council

Hey, look me over; lend me an ear,
Watch me advance in Scouting every year.
First Im a Bobcat, then a Wolf and Bear;
Soon, Im a Webelos and on Ill go from there,
A-singing,

 

Hey, look me over; lend me an ear,
Join me in a song and sing out loud and clear,
That our Cub Scout advancement is the way to grow--
Stand back, parents here we go!

 

Proud To Be A Webelos
(tune: Polly Wolly Doodle)
Northwest Suburban Council

 

Oh, I worked real hard to be a Webelos,
Growing stronger; getting smarter every day.
Gonna earn near every pin there is,
Growing stronger; getting smarter every day.
Chorus:

Joining in; having fun;
I will always do my best!
Cause Im proud to be a Webelos,
Were a cut above the rest!

 

Oh, the Arrow of Light is my next goal,
Growing stronger; getting smarter every day.
Then Ill move on to my Boy Scout Troop,
Growing stronger; getting smarter every day.

Chorus:

How I Want to Grow Up
(Tune: Toys R Us Jingle)
(aka I Don't Want Grow Up)
Mt. Diablo Silverado Council

 

How I want to grow up,
So I won't be a kid.
Then Morn won't ever scold me
Like she already did.
No chores, no school,
It'll be so cool
To always get my way!
How I want to grow up
And do what I want,
Each and every day!

 

Grown-ups
(Tune: Bicycle Built for Two)
Mt. Diablo Silverado Council

 

Grown-ups, grown-ups,
Telling us what to do.
You've forgotten
You used to be children too!
Now you just do your taxes,
Or send and receive faxes,
You'd have more fun with everyone
If you'd just play a game or two!

 

Growing Older
(Tune: Happy Birthday)
Mt. Diablo Silverado Council

 

Growing older should be
Much quicker, you see.
If kids ran the country,
How much better we'd be!

 

Oh, I Can Be
(Tune: Did You Ever See a Lassie)
Mt. Diablo Silverado Council

 

Oh, I might be a doctor or dentist or lawyer,

Or I could be a pilot and soar through the air.

A nurse or a teacher,

Or maybe a preacher,

Oh, I can be successful

Whatever I choose.

 

Remembering the Gold & Blue

(Tune: Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star)
Mt. Diablo Silverado Council

 

Cats were kittens,

Dogs were pups.

Everything keeps growing up.

As for leaders there you see,

They were once Cub Scouts like me.

Some day I'll be grown up too,

Remembering the Gold and Blue.

 

How I Wanna

(Tune: Michael, Row the Boat Ashore)
Mt. Diablo Silverado Council

 

Growing up is hard to do,

I don't wanna!

Find a job, and keep it too,

I don't wa-aa-na!

I would rather stay a boy,

How I wanna!

Fool around with all my toys,

How I wa-aa-na!

Gett'ng older every day,

I don't wanna!

It's a lot more fun to play,

How I wa-aa-na!

 

When I Was Just
(tune: Que, Sera, Sera)
Detroit Area Council

 

When I was just a Tiger Cub
I asked my partner, "What will I be?
Will I be Bobcat?  Will I be Wolf?
Here's what he said to me:
If you work real hard,
Your Bobcat and Wolf will come.
You'll learn while you're having fun.
Little Tiger Cub.

 

When I was just a little Wolf
I asked my leader "What will I be?
Will I be a Bear, or Webelos?
Here's what she said to me
If you work real hard,
A Bear and Webelos you'll be
You'll go to the Webelos den
With fond memories of me.

 

When I was just a Webelos
I asked my leader, "What will I be?
Will the Arrow of Light point over the bridge?
Here's what he said to me
To Boy Scouts you'll go
And we will all miss you so.
But deep in our hearts we'll know
Soon an Eagle you'll be.

 

Oh I Wish I Were
(tune: If You're Happy And You Know It)
Detroit Area Council

 

Oh, I wish I were a little bar of soap.
Oh, I wish I were a little bar of soap.
I would slippy and I'd slidey,
Over everybody's hidey.
Oh, I wish I were a little bar of soap.

 

Oh, I wish I were a little hunk of mud.
Oh, I wish I were a little hunk of mud.
I'd ooey and I'd gooey,
Under everybody's shoey.
Oh, I wish I were a little hunk of mud.

 

Oh, I wish I were a little slice of orange.
Oh, I wish I were a little slice of orange.
I'd go squirty, squirty, squirty,
Over everybody's shirty.
Oh, I wish I were a little slice of orange.

 

Oh, I wish I were a little can of pop.
Oh, I wish I were a little can of pop.
I'd go down with a slurp,
And I'd come up with a burp.
Oh, I wish I were a little can of pop.

 

Oh, I wish I were a little mosquito.
Oh, I wish I were a little mosquito.
I'd go bitey, bitey, bitey,
Over everybody's hidey.
Oh, I wish I were a little mosquito.

 

Oh, I wish I were a little English sparrow
Oh, I wish I were a little English sparrow
Oh I'd sitty on the steeple and I'd spitty on the people
Oh, I wish I were a little English sparrow

 

Oh, I wish I were a little striped skunk
Oh, I wish I were a little striped skunk
Oh I'd sit beneath the trees and perfume all the breeze
Oh, I wish I were a little striped skunk

 

Oh I wish I were a fishy in the sea
Oh I wish I were a fishy in the sea
Oh I'd swim nudey nudey nudey without my bathing suity
Oh I wish I were a fishy in the sea.

 

 

I Wish I Were
(tune: I Wish I Were An Oscar Meyer Weiner)
Detroit Area Council

 

Oh, I wish I were a door-to-door salesman
That is what I'd truly like to be;
'Cause if I were a door-to-door salesman
Nobody would slam the door on me.

 

Oh, I wish I were a high school teacher,
That is what I'd truly like to be.
'Cause if I were a high school teacher
All the kids would learn a lot from me.

 

Oh, I wish I were a plastic surgeon,
That is what I'd truly like to be.
'Cause if I were a plastic surgeon
My facelifts for the ladies would be free.

 

Oh, I wish I were a railroad engineer,
That is what I'd truly like to be.
'Cause if I were a railroad engineer
I'd always get to ride in a choo-choo.

 

Oh, I guess it doesn't matter what I do,
As long as I am happy with my job.
'Cause no matter what I really want to do
I don't want to go to work and sob!

 

Commercial mix-up
Tune: The Farmer in the Dell
SHAC

Last night I watched TV
I saw my favorite show,
I heard this strange commercial
I cant believe its so.

 

Feed your dog Chiffon,
Comet cures a cold,
Use S.O.S. pads on your face
To keep from looking old.

 

Mop your floor with Crest,
Use Crisco on your tile,
Clean your teeth with Borateem-
It leaves a shining smile.

 

For headaches take some Certs,
Use Tide to clean your face,
And do shampoo with Elmers Glue,
It holds your hair in place.

 

Perhaps I am confused,
I might not have it right,
But one thing that Im certain of
Ill watch TV tonight!

 

I Wish I Were

Tune:  I Wish I Were an Oscar Meyer Wiener
SHAC

Oh, wish I were a volunteer fireman,

That is what Id really like to be.

Cuz if I were a volunteer fireman,

Everyone would lo-ok up to me.

 

Id climb up ladders to save babies.

Id battle fire, smoke and burning steam.

Id wear my big, red firemans cap proudly.

And polish my badge until it gleamed.

 

Oh, I wish I were an ambulance driver.

That is what Id really like to be.

Cuz if I was an ambulance driver,

Everyone would lo-ok up to me.

 

Id rush to help very sick people.

Ive trained so long to be an EMT.

Id know the town and be a safe driver

My Sirens and my lights youd surely see.

 

Oh, I wish I were a city policeman.

That is what Id really like to be.

Cuz if I was a city policeman,

Everyone would lo-ok up to me.

 

Id patrol the streets of town for your safety.

Id work to keep us gang and drug free.

Id have my picture on a cop card

I dont want kids to be afraid of me.

 

Oh, I wish I were a 911 dispatcher.

That is what Id really like to be.

Cuz if I was a 911 dispatcher,

Everyone would lo-ok up to me.

 

Dial 911 and I would answer

And ask you what you need and where you be.

Id send police or fireman quickly

Or any other help that you might need.
