Pinewood Derby Racing Song
Trapper Trails
(Tune "Take me out to the ball game" )

Take me out to the pinewood,
take me out to the crowd.
Buy me some graphite and a sanding block,
I don't care if I ever get back.
We will root, root, root for my racer,
If I don't win you can say.
That I cut, sanded and designed it my self
in the Cub Scout Way!

B'gosh their starting the race now,
I see my friend's in the heat
He's standing there biting his fingernails,
But I am sure that he'll never be beat!
For, We'll root, root, root for my den-mate,
If he doesn't win we can say.
That he cut, sanded, and designed it him self
In the Cub Scout Way!

The Scouts have declared a winner,
And I am proud to say,
My racer, it got to the end of the track,
And my den leader let me bring it back,
For a second heat in consolation,
Was my decision today.
But I cut, sanded, and designed it myself
in the Cub Scout Way!

Bicycle Built for Two
Baltimore Area Council

Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer, do,
I’m half crazy, all for the love of you,
It won’t be a stylish marriage,
I can’t afford a carriage,
But you’ll look sweet, on the seat,
Of a bicycle built for two~,

The Wheels on the Bus
Baltimore Area Council

The wheels of the bus go round and round,
Round and round, round and round.
The wheels of the bus go round and round
All through the town.

The driver on the bus says, "Move on back.”
"Move on back.” "Move on back.”
The driver on the bus says, "Move on back.”
All through the town,

The people on the bus go up and down,
Up and down, up and down,
The people on the bus go up and down
All through the town.

Trapper Trails
 (Tune: Auld Lang Syne)

We're here for fun right from the start,
So drop your dignity,
Just laugh and sing with all your heart,
and show your loyalty.

May all your troubles be forgot.
Let this night be the best.
Join in the songs we sing tonight.
Be happy with the rest.

Pinewood Derby
Trapper Trails
(Tune: I've Been Working On The Railroad)

I've been working on the Derby,
Planning my race car.
All the family has been helping,
My car should be the star!
Can't you hear the crowds a cheering,
As we win the prize?
Pinewood Derby time's exciting,
For all the Cub Scout guys.

Trapper Trails
(Tune: Home on the Range)

Oh, give me a train, or a boat, or a plane,
That will carry us Cubs far away;
To Paris or Rome– let us wander and roam,
And find new things every day.

Relax on a trail, float over the waves all day,
Or glide through the clouds far over the crowds,
But be home before five every day.
On a broomstick we’ll ride,, in a rowboat we’ll glide;

Take a trip to the moon in a rocket;
And our trip will be fun, but it soon will be done,
If we happen to hit an air pocket.
Up, up and away, let us orbit the far distant sun,

Or deep on the floor of the sea let’s explore,
and as Cub scout we’ll wheel into fun.

Cub Scout Sports Song
Santa Clara County Council
Tune: My Bonnie

My baseball went over the fence 
My arrows are broken to bits
My volleyball been deflated 
After riding a horse I can’t sit

Belt loops, belt loops,
I’ll earn my sports pin today, today.
Belt loops, belt loops;
My letter is not far away

My bicycle has a flat tire
My boomerang just won’t return. 
They say that I’ve lost all my marbles
And I still haven’t gotten my turn.


My dog ate my ping pong paddle. 
My badminton birdie has flown.
I sprained my right ankle while jogging 
And was stranded ten mile’s from home.


They say that Cub Scout sports are fun.
Some day I would like to know. 
I’ve been wandering around for an hour 
Just waiting for my Den to show.


Summer Fun In The Sun
Santa Clara County Council
 (Tune: My Bonnie)

There's camping and fishing and swimming
And soccer and baseball leagues too.
And if you get up really early
You'll enjoy a trip to the zoo.

Fun in the Sun
Fun in the Sun
For Cubs it's a natural thing to do
Fun in the sun
Fun in the sun
But plan in for safety first, too.

A water fight's great in the summer
With water balloons galore.
But it's better to go to the park, cause
In the house it can mess up the floor


Water skiing is sure fun each summer
And boat rides are much fun to take.
But go over the rules for boat safety
Or they'll be pulling you out of the lake.


Camper's Lament
Santa Clara County Council
(Tune: "Battle Hymn Of The Republic")

The first raindrop began to fall as I arrived at camp.
Then followed many million more as it began to pour!
My father said, "Don't worry son; it won't be lasting long."
When will I see the sun?

Pouring, pouring, not a single speck of light.
Pouring, pouring, thru the day and thru the night.
Pouring, pouring, wish my boots were water tight.
When will I see the sun?

First my socks, and then my pants were wringing, sopping wet.
My sleeping bag's a water bed, a drenched cap on my head.
The tent I slept in floated 'way; my food's a dripping goo.
When will I see the sun?


Today's the day I'm leaving camp, and LO! what do I see?
A ray of sun a-streaming thru a patch so bright and blue!
The clouds are parting; dove's returning with an olive branch;
I finally saw the sun!

(Change last line to:
I finally saw the sun!)
