Twelve Scouting Days of Christmas

Connecticut Rivers Council

(Tune: 12 Days of Christmas)

On the first day of Scouting, Akela gave to me.

A Den Leader swinging from a tree! _

On the second day of Scouting, Akela gave to me

Two Screaming Bobcats,

And a Den Leader swinging from a tree! _

OK, you should have the idea by now.

Here's the rest of these silly verses:

Third Day - Three Skinny Wolves

Fourth Day - Four Hungry Bears

Fifth Day - Five We be lost

Sixth Day - Six Arrow points

Seventh Day - Seven Silly Den Chiefs

Eighth Day -Eight Shouting Scouts

Ninth Day - Nine Warring Eagles

Tenth Day - Ten Derby Cars

Eleventh Day - Eleven Funny Den Skits

Twelfth Day Ė Twelve Wacky Cheers

I'm Playing In The Snow

Connecticut Rivers Council

(Tune: Iím Singing in the Rain)

Iím playing in the snow.

Iím playing in the snow.

What a glorious feeling

Itís snowing again.

Making snowman tonight

For the whole world to see

Iím happy just playing

In the snow.

S-A-N-T-A

Connecticut Rivers Council

 (Tune: BINGO)

Every Cub Scout has a friend

And Santa is his name, sir

S-A-N-T-A,

S-A-N-T-A

S-A-N-T-A

And Santa is his name.

Sing song through six times,

The first time just spelling out the name S A N T A;

Second time, spell out first four letters and clap the A

Third time, spell out first three letters and clap T  A etc.

Dreidel, Dreidel, Dreidel

Santa Clara County Council

I have a little dreidel

I made it out of clay

And when it's dry and ready

Then dreidel I shall play!

Chorus:

Oh - dreidel, dreidel, dreidel

I made it out of clay

And when it's dry and ready

Then dreidel I shall play!

It has a lovely body

With legs so short and thin

And when my dreidelís tired

It drops and then I win!

Chorus

 

My dreidelís always playful

It loves to dance and spin

A happy game of dreidel

Come play now, letís begin!

Chorus

Libraries Are No Place to Eat

Santa Clara County Council

By Dennis Perry, Wilson Library,

Western Washington University

(Tune: Santa Claus is Coming To Town)

You better not eat, you better not chew,

You better not munch,

We're talkin' to you!

Libraries are no place to eat.

You better not drink,

You better not dine;

If offered some food, politely decline.

Libraries are no place to eat.

You don't come here for bathing,

You don't come here to smoke;

So don't come here to eat your lunch Ė

If you do we'll make you choke.

So put down that Coke,

That apple, and cake;

Eating it here's a major mistake.

Libraries are no place to eat.

You better not bite, ingest, or consume;

Just take it outside - there's plenty of room.

Libraries are no place to eat.

We see you when you're snacking,

We hear you when you gulp;

We're gonna take your taco chips

And mash them into pulp!

We've taken an oath all munching to squelch;

You better not gobble, gurgle, or belch.

Libraries are no place to eat.

We don't care how great your grandmother cooks;

We don't want those fingers touching our books.

Libraries are no place to eat.

The next time your stomach's craving some food,

Remember these points we've carefully reviewed.

Libraries are no place to eat!

A HANUKKAH SONG

Greater St. Louis Area Council

Tune: Three Blind Mice

Eight bright lights, eight bright lights,
See how they glow, see how they glow,
They call to mind the Maccabees,
The struggle for our liberties,
The glory of their victories,
Eight bright lights.

Menorah Light, menorah Bright.

See how it shines, see how it shines.

The candles shine with a light so bright,

See how it brightens the darkest night,

Have you ever seen such a sight in your life,

Menorah Bright!

A Scoutís Christmas

Southern NJ Council

(Tune: Jingle Bells)

Dashing through the den,
With a rope held by each end,
Tying a bowline knot
Then showing what I've got.

Whittling with my knife
On a practice Dial soap bar.
I can hardly wait,
Scout camp can't be far.

Bait a hook,
Learn to cook,
Bike ro-de-os.
Neckerchief slides,
Canned food drives,
Learning to take photos.

Pancake mix,
Carving sticks,
Keeps us on the run.
Our families
Make all these
Memories so much fun.

Dashing through the camp,
Putting up the tents,
Popping all the corn,
Blowing that morning horn.

Of scout camp we all dream
We'll soon be old enough
Tigers, Bobcats, Wolves, and Bears
We're made of real tough stuff!

Half-hitch knots,
Setting up cots,
Playing fun new games.
Hammers and nails,
Compass and trails,
Arrow points are the thing.

Santa's coming,
We've been good,
As good as we can be...
Load our stocking
With a pocket knife,
Boy Scouts we want to be!
