Pinewood Derby Racing Song
Grand Teton Council
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!

Grand Teton Council
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
Grand Teton Council
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,

Grand Teton Council
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.

Pinewood Derby Song
Grand Teton Council
Tune: De Camptown Races

Cub Scouts all join in the song,
Do-da, do-da!
Pine car track is mighty long,
Oh, do-day-day!


Going to run so fast,
Going to get ahead,
All my work made a blue pine car,
Somebody made a the red.

Black cars, blue cars, green and gray,
Do-da, do-da!
Are running on the track today.
Oh, do-da-day!


Pine cars do have lots of class.
Do-da, Do-dah!
Even though they don't use gas,
Oh, do-da-day!


They're the pride of all the Dens,
Do-da, do-da!
Built by Cub Scouts and their friends,
Oh, do-da-day!


Let's Go For a Ride
Great Salt Lake Council
Tune: Ten Little Indians

Come everyone lets go for a ride
Start your engines we don't need a guide.
Just hop in the car of your choice
A Mustang, school bus, or a Rolls Royce.

Gremlin, Vespa, Cadillac
Corvette, Rabbit, horse and tack.
Minivan, Cavalier, ATV
Limousine, Neon, SUV.

A Dodge with a Hemi, ain't that super?
Or better yet, a Mini Cooper!
Motorcycle, taxi, or Ferrari
Hop into a forklift, you won't be sorry.

Ambulance, Porsche, El Camino
Convertible, T-bird, or a Pinto.
Big rig, Charger, or a fire truck
Perhaps a crane so you don't get stuck.

A 1998 Honda Accord
Maybe a Jeep so you don't get bored.
Station wagon, bicycle, or a Hummer
A caboose is the end, oh what a bummer!

The Old Camp Truck
Great Salt Lake Council
Tune: John Brown's Body

The old camp truck has a puncture in it's tire,
The old camp truck has a puncture in it's tire,
The old camp truck has a puncture in it's tire,
So we patched it up with chewing gum.


  • eFord' | make a ebrrrrmmmm' sound as you pretend to shift into gear.
  • ePuncture'| make a eptsssss' sound as you pretend that you are puncturing a tire with your finger
  • eTire' | make a circle in front of you using both arms
  • ePatched' | smack your hands
  • eGum' | pretend to have a wad of gum in your mouth and you reach up and pinch it between your thumb and finger and stretch it out in front of you
