There seems to be a plethora of songs this month based on “Row, Row, Row Your Boat.”  Here are some of them - CD

Help, Help, Help, Help, Help

Heart Of America Council

 (Tune: Row, row, row your boat)

Help, help, help, help, help

I have an emergency.

Quickly, quickly, quickly, quickly,

Dial 911, oh please.

Brush Your Teeth

Lomghorn Council

(Tune: Row, Row, Row Your Boat)

Brush, brush, brush your teeth,
Morning, noon and night.
See your dentist twice a year,
Keep your smile so bright.

Lock Your Doors

Tune: Row, Row, Row Your Boat

Great Salt Lake Council

Lock, lock, lock your doors,

Lock them every day.

Turn the radio on to hear,

Keep troubles away.

Look, look, look, both ways

When crossing any street.

Use the walkway that is there;

Safety is so sweet.

No, No, No's the word,

When you know what's right.

Tell `em to just give it up

­Keep trouble out of sight.

I’m Fire Safety Sam

Longhorn Council

(Tune: Popeye the Sailor Man)

I'm Fire Safety Sam. (ruff, ruff)
I'm Fire Safety Sam. (ruff, ruff)
Please test smoke detectors
'Cause they're home protectors.
I'm Fire Safety Sam. (ruff, ruff)

Substitute lines 3 and 4 with the following words for new verses...

It's important to say..
With matches, don't play.

If there's smoke you should know,
you'd better crawl low.

Have a fire escape plan.
Every family can.

If there's a fire, get out.
Use your escape route.

Go to a neighbor's when alone,
Then call 9-1-1 on the phone.

Clothes on fire? Here's your goal:
First stop, then drop, and roll!

Burn Care

(Tune:  Mary Had a Little Lamb)

Santa Clara County Council

For minor burns, we are told,

Treat with water that is cold.

A light cover keeps out air,

A minor burn gets minor care.

Major burns need medical potion,

Never apply grease or lotion!

“A clean dry cloth” is what they say

And, “See a doctor right away!”

Thinking Safety

(Tune:  Clementine)

Santa Clara County Council

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 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.
