We Are Miners
Baloo's takeoff of HOAC song

We are miners
We are miners

What are you?
What are you?

We are (lively) Cub Scouts
We are (lively) Cub Scouts

So we see.
So we see.

(The group or song leader sings parts 1 & 3, the den leading the song sings section 2 substituting various adjectives for the word in parenthesis and adding appropriate actions.)

Some suggestions and actions are:
Lively: waving arms or jumping up and down.
Happy: making large exaggerated smiles
Sleepy: yawning and stretching
Ornery: make ornery faces and waving arms
Excited: jumping and clapping

Fire Prevention Song
Tune: Clementine
National Capital Area Council

Check your hallways, check your closets,
And underneath the stairwell, too.
For if you've piled a lot of junk there,
A big fire may call on you.

Dirty paint rags, piled up papers,
Frayed extension cords won't do.
Fire prevention is the answer.
All good Cub Scouts follows through.

We're Glad to See You Here
Tune: The Farmer in the Dell

We're glad to see you here,
It gives us joy and cheer.
Sure, it's true, we say to you,
We're glad to see you here.


Mike Schenaker Assistant Cubmaster Pack 889

Fairfax, VA, recently acquired a BSA softcover booklet titled, Cub Scout Song Book (copyright 1955). Here is an example of one of the songs:

A Smile Is Quite A Funny Thing
(Tune: Auld Lang Syne)

A smile is quite a funny thing,
It wrinkles up your face,
And when it's gone you never find
Its secret hiding place.

But far more wonderful it is
To see what smiles can do.
You smile at one, he smiles at you,
And soon one smile makes two.

He smiles at someone, since you smile,
And then that one smiles back,
And that one smiles until, in truth,
You fail in keeping track.

And since a smile can do great good
By cheering hearts of care,
Let's smile and not forget the fact
That smiles go everywhere.
