SONGS

Song of my Shoes

Tune: Battle Hymn of the Republic

Mt. Diablo Silverado Council

This song was first in Baloo a few years ago,  It instantly became a favorite at our Roundtables. CD

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!

Chorus

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 same old socks for seven days this week,

My shoes do really stink!

Chorus

Groovy, Radical, and Awesome (repeat 3x)

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!

Chorus

Groovy, Radical, and Awesome (repeat 3x)

My shoes have bit the dust!

That's Why We Are In Cub Scouts

Circle Ten Council

Tune: Deep In The Heart Of Texas

 The fun things in life,

Our family's delight!

(clap hands four times)

That's why we're in Cub Scouting.

 We do our best,

To pass each test

(clap hands four times)

That's why we're in Cub Scouting.

 Just me and my son,

Work, play and have fun,

(clap hands four times)

That's why we're in Cub Scouting.

 We think our pack's great,

We keep it first-rate;

(clap hands four times)

That's why we're in Cub Scouting!

Bay Area Council Pow Wow, 1994

CATCH THE SCOUTING SPIRIT

Sam Houston Area Council

(Tune: Catch a Falling Star)

Catch the Scouting spirit

Put it in your heart

Never let it fade away.

Catch the Scouting spirit

Put it in your heart

Never let it fade away.

For someday soon you'll see

What's been accomplished

It will make you proud

And don't forget the fun

And fellowship there you'll

Get rewards beyond compare.

Catch the Scouting spirit

Put in it your heart

Never let it fade away.

GLAD I AM A MEMBER OF THE CUB SCOUTS

Sam Houston Area Council

(Tune: Oscar Meyer Weiner Song)

Oh. 1'm glad I am a member of the Cub Scouts.

T hat is something that I'm proud to be.

And, since I am a member of the Cub Scouts,

Something great will surely come to me.

Oh, 1 learn about the planet that I live on

And how I can help care for it each day.

The community around me 1'm exploring.

And, I find out how to live the Scouting way.

I try to serve my God and serve my country,

And help out other people everyday.

Iíll follow my Akela on my journeys.

And always give Goodwill along the way.

(Repeat first verse)

A SMILE IS QUITE A FUNNY THING

Sam Houston Area Council

(Tune: Auld Lang Syne)

A smile is quite a funny thing.

It wrinkles up your face,

And when it's gone you never find

It's secret hiding place.

But far more wonderful it is

To see what smiles can do,

You smile at one, he smiles at you

And soon one smile makes two.

He smiles at someone, since you smile,

And then that one smiles back,

And that one smiles until, in truth,

You fail in keeping track.

And since a smile can do great good

By cheering hearts of care,

Let's smile and not forget the fact

Those smiles go everywhere.

BE KIND TO YOUR - SCOUTING FRIENDS

Sam Houston Area Council

(Tune: Stars and Strips Forever)

Be kind to your -scouting friends.

That's a pledge from one Scouter to another.

Be kind to your leaders today,

`Cause by caring you follow Scouting's letter.

Scouting and friendship are grand,

And as we grow, the world will know,

We've made things better.

I AM SPECIAL

Circle Ten Council

Tune: Frere Jacques

I am special, I am special

Yes I am! Yes I Am!

I am very special

No one else is like me.

I am me! I am me!
