Santa's coming, Santa's coming,

Seen in many places;

Who fills' the children's wishes;

Brings gifts to make tots tingle;

For Nicholas' horse to munch;

No matter what his face or name
Good will and peace are just the same;
Santa Claus, Santa Claus.

Here at last here at last.

Oh what fun we'll have.

Share With Others
Sam Houston Area Council
Tune: Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer

Here's to the Cubs in our den,
As they follow, help and give.
All of the boys in our den,
Know just how a Cub should live.

Now that it's time for Christmas,
We've been very helpful boys,
We've gathered lots of old things,
Fixed them up like brand new toys.

Saved our pennies every meeting,
Bought a lovely Christmas tree,
Trimmed it up to take to our
Den adopted family.

Bright and early Christmas morning,
When they see our shiny toys,
We'll be happy that we shared
Our Christmas joy with other boys.

Im a Little Dreidel

Im a little dreidel
Made of clay.
Spin me around when you want to play
When I fall down, if you don't win
Just pick me up and spin again.

When Your Helping And You Know It
Trapper Trails Council
Tune: When you're happy and you know it

When you're helping and you know it,
Lend a hand
When you're giving and you show it
Things are grand
If you're helping and you're giving
Then you help make life worth living
Keep on helping, keep on giving
Take a stand

Giving Time
Trapper Trails Council
Tune: Jingle Bells-chorus

Giving time, sharing time
Fun for everyone
Scouters know that December is
The time for deeds well done

Giving time, sharing time
Let us all take part
Join with Cub Scouts all around
And give gifts from the heart

Randall, the Red-Cheeked cub Scout
Trapper Trails
Tune: Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer

Randall, the red-cheeked Cub Scout
Had a very cold, cold nose
And if you ever noticed
You could even say it flows

All of the other Cubbies
Used to laugh and point it out
That Randall, the red-cheeked Cub Scout
Had a very runny snout

Then one day the Den Leader
Took Randall out of sight
And told him that it's time he knew
How to wipe his nose just right

Now all the other Cubbies
Think Randall is a "Class-A" Scout
Cause Randall, the red-cheeked Cub Scout
Finally learned to blow his snout
