Pinewood Derby Song
Tune: De Camptown Races
York Adams Area Council

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


Going to run so fast,
Going to get ahead,
Bet my money on a blue pine car,
Somebody bet on 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!


Toolbox Song
(Tune: I'm a Little Teapot)
By Joalene and Cordell Whitmer
San Francisco Bay Area Council

I'm a pair of pliers just because
Here is my handle here are my jaws.

Keep me in your toolbox bright and new
Take me out and I'll work for you.

I'm a coping saw that's strung to tight
Pull me then push me to use me right.

I'm a big strong hammer, a mighty tool.
Hit the nails only, that's the rule.

I'm a handy wood plane, give me a try.
I can help you out if your door's too high.

Working With Wood
(Tune: I've Been Working on the Railroad)

I've been working for the Derby, planning my racing car!
All my 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.
