Baloo's Bugle



(similar to BINGO, but backwards!)
York Adams Area Council

There was a farmer who had a dog and OGNIB was his name, oh!
O-G-N-I-B, O-G-N-I-B, O-G-N-I-B, and OGNIB was his name, oh!

For each verse after the first, omit saying one letter more, so that the second verse is:

There was a farmer who had a dog and OGNIB was his name, oh!
(Sh)-G-N-I-B, (Sh)- G-N-I-B, (Sh)- G-N-I-B,
And OGNIB was his name, oh!

And so on

My Mother, She Set Out My Play Clothes
(tune: My Bonnie Lies Over The Ocean)
York Adams Area Council

My mother, she set out my play clothes
For me to wear on Saturday.
But when I woke up in the morning,
I saw she’d done it the wrong way.

Lay out, lay out, oh lay out my clothes the right way, right way.
Oh Please Mom, please Mom!  I want to go out and play!

She had the blue jeans on the top
Of the stack—which means put them on first.
And next to the shoes and the socks,
Were my boxers—the pattern star burst.

I put on my play clothes in the order
That Mom had placed them out for me.
But when I put on my white tee shirt
The sleeve got stuck on my knee.


The socks got stuck on my hands,
The shoe did not fit on my arm,
Luckily when I put on my pants,
The buckle did not my face harm.


The morale of this silly tale
Is based on how silly I felt
When putting on clothes Mom laid out.
Don’t wrap your feet up with your belt!
