SONGS

The Wrong End

Santa Clara County Council

(Tune: My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean)

Oh, rabbits have bright, shiny noses,


I’m telling you this as a friend.


The reason their noses are shiny:


The powder puff’s on the wrong end.


Wrong end – wrong end –


The powder puff’s on the wrong end –


Wrong end –


Wrong end – wrong end –


The powder puff’s on the wrong end!

Bingo

Baltimore Area Council

There was a farmer, had a dog,
And Bingo was his name-0
B-I-N-G-O, B-I-N-G-O, B-I-N-G-O,
And Bingo was his name-O.

There was a farmer, had a dog,
And Bingo was his name-o.
(Clap)-I-N-G-O, (Clap)-I-N-G-O, (Clap)-I-N-G-O.
And Bingo was his name-O.

(Repeat. Each time replace one more letter of Bingo’s name with a clap.)

I Know A Cat

Baltimore Area Council

Sung to Bingo

I know a cat with perky ears,
And kitty is her name-o.
K-I-T-T-Y, K-I-T-T-Y, K-I-T-T-Y
And kitty is her name-o

She makes a sound and it’s “meow”
And Kitty is her name-o
K-I-T-T-Y, K-I-T-T-Y, K-I-T-T-Y
And kitty is her name-o

Tom The Toad

Baltimore Area Council

Tune - Oh Tannenbaum

Oh Tom the Toad, Oh Tom the Toad,
Why are you lying in the road?
Oh Tom the Toad, Oh Tom the Toad,
Why are you lying in the road?
You did not see the car ahead,
And on your head are tire treads.
Oh Tom the Toad, Oh Tom the Toad,
Why are you lying in the road?

Oh Matt the Rat, Oh Matt the Rat,
Why did you tease my pussycat?
Oh matt the Rat, Oh Matt the Rat,
Why did you tease my pussycat?
You used to be so brown and thin,
And now you are inside of him.
Oh Malt the Rat, Oh Matt the Rat,
Why did you tease my pussycat?

Oh Jake the Snake, Oh Jake the Snake,
How did you find my garden rake?
Oh Jake the Snake, Oh Jake the Snake,
How did you find my garden rake?
You used to be so long and slick,
And now you are so short and sick.
Oh Jake the Snake, Oh Jack the Snake,
How did you find my garden rake?

Oh Doug the Bug, Oh Doug the Bug,
Why did you fall into my rug?
Oh Doug the Bug, Oh Doug the Bug,
Why did you fall into my rug?
I really like to play with you,
And now you’re stuck upon my shoe.
Oh Doug the Bug, Oh Doug the Bug,
Why did you fall into my rug?

Oh Sid the Slug, Oh Sid the Slug,
why are you sitting in my mug?
Oh Sid the Slug, Oh Sid the Slug,
Why are you sitting in my mug?
You’re sitting there, you look sublime,
But now my mug is till of slime.
Oh Sid the Slug, Oh Sid the Slug,
Why are you sitting in my mug?

How Much Is That Doggie in the Window?

Baltimore Area Council

 (Tune: http://www.niehs.nih.gov/kids/lyrics/howmuch.htm )

Chorus:
How much is that doggie in the window? (arf! arf!)
The one with the waggley tail
How much is that doggie in the window? (arf! arf!)
I do hope that doggie’s for sale

I must take a trip to California
And leave my poor Cub Scout alone
If he has a dog, he won’t be lonesome
And the doggie will have a good home

Chorus

I read in the paper there are robbers (roof! roof!)
With flashlights that shine in the dark
My son needs a doggie to protect him
And scare them away with one bark (Chorus)

I don’t want a bunny or a kitty
I don’t want a parrot that talks
I don’t want a bowl of little fishies
He can’t take a fish for a walk (Chorus)

Chorus

Note: Arf! Arf! sounds like a small dog.
Roof! Roof! sounds like a bigger dog.

I Have A Dog

Santa Clara County Council

(Tune: “Reuben, Reuben, I’ve Been Thinking”)

I have a dog his name is Fido.
I have raised him from a pup.


He can stand upon his hind legs,


If you hold his front legs up!

There is a second verse to this in the Cub Scout Roundtable Planning Guide  CD

Inchworm

Santa Clara County Council

There was no reference for a tune for this song in the SCCC Pow Wow Book.  CD

Inch worm, inch worm
Measuring the marigolds
You and your arithmetic
You'll probably go far
Inch worm, Inch worm
Measuring the marigolds
Seems to me you'd stop and see
How beautiful they are
Two and two are four
Four and four are eight
Eight and eight are sixteen
sixteen and sixteen are thirty-two

The Cat Came Back

Santa Clara County Council

Old farmer Johnson had troubles of his own
He had a yellow cat that wouldn't leave him alone
He tried and he tried to give that cat away
Gave him to a man going very far away

Chorus

But the cat came back, the very next day
Oh the cat came back, they thought he was a gonner
But the cat came back, he just couldn't stay away, away, away

Gave it to a man going way out west
Told him to give it to the one he loved the best
First the train jumped the track, then it slipped the rail
No one is alive today to tell the sad detail

Chorus

Gave it to someone going up in a balloon
Told him to give it to the man in the moon
Balloon came down about 90 miles away
But where the pilot is today I cannot say

Be Kind to Your Web Footed Friends

Santa Clara County Council

This is sung to the tune of Sousa’s “The Stars and Stripes Forever”  How many of you sang this each week at the end of “Sing Along with Mitch?”  CD

Be kind to your web-footed friends
For a duck may be somebody's mother
Who lives all alone in a swamp
Where it's very cold and damp
You might think that this is the end
Well it's not caus' I know another stanza

Be kind to your web-footed friends
For that cop may be Dick Tracy's brother
Who lives all alone on the beat
On a dark and dingy street
You might think that this is the end
Well, Why not!

Boa-Constrictor

Santa Clara County Council

I'm being swallowed by a boa-constrictor
I'm being swallowed by a boa-constrictor
And I don't like it one little bit
Oh, no, he's got my toe

Follow up with the following verses -

O gee, O gee, he's up to my knee
Oh, my, Oh, my, he's reached my thigh
O fiddle, O fiddle, he's at my middle
Oh heck, Oh heck, he's up to my neck
O dread, O dread, He's got my GULP!!!

JOHNNY HAD A LITTLE DOG

Piedmont Council

(Tune: Mary Had a Little Lamb)

Johnny had a little dog,
Little dog, little dog.
Johnny had a little dog,
Who’s fur was bright as gold.
And everywhere that Johnny went,
Johnny went, Johnny went,
And everywhere that Johnny went,
The dog was sure to go.
It followed him to pack one day,
Pack one day, pack one day,
It followed him to pack one day,
Which was against the rules.
It made the Cub Scouts laugh and play,
Laugh and play, laugh and play.
It made the Cub Scouts laugh and play
To see a dog at pack.
And so the leader turned it out,
Turned it out, turned it out.
And so the leader turned it out
But still it lingered near.
Why does the dog love Johnny so,
Johnny so, Johnny so,
Why does the dog love Johnny so,
Because he is a Cub.

WHEN THE DOGS COME RUNNIN’ IN

Piedmont Council

(Tune: When the Saints Go Marchin’ In)


Oh when the dogs come runnin’ in,


Covered with mud from toe to shin,


My mother gives me a mop and a bucket,


When the dogs come runnin’ in.


‘Cause they trample mud on floors and sheets.


And it would be an awesome feat,


If I could get them to use the door mat,


When the dogs come runnin’ in.
