San Gabriel, Long Beach Area, Verdugo Hills Councils
 (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.

 

When You’re Helping And You Know It
San Gabriel, Long Beach Area, Verdugo Hills Councils
(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

Give a Gift
San Gabriel, Long Beach Area, Verdugo Hills Councils
 (Tune: I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing)

I'd like to give the world a gift,
That all men will be free.
And though I'm just a growing boy,
There's things that I can see.

I see that Scouting is a way
To start to understand,
That caring, helping, smiling, learning
Help me be a man.

And so at Christmas there's a gift
That you can give to me.
Please help me grow in mind and spirit
To be what I can be.

Giving Time
Baltimore Area Council
Tune: Jingle Bells-chorus

Giving time, sharing time
Fun for everyone
Scouters know that Christmas 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.

Jolly Old Cubmaster
Tune: Jolly Old St. Nicholas

Jolly Old Cubmaster
Lend your ear this way
Don’t you tell a single soul
What I’m going to say
Holiday eve is coming soon
Now you dear old man
Tell me who has earned their rank
Tell me if you can

Has Bobby earned his Bobcat
Has Nick earned his Wolf
Has Johnny earned his Bear rank
Had Jack earned his Webelos badge
Now don’t you think that #ii is
A present that’s the best
Tell me now dear Cubmaster
Tell me who’s advanced

Do Your Best - Are You Sleeping
Piedmont Area Council
(Tune: Are You Sleeping)

When you do your best
When you do your best
You'll feel great
You'll feel great

Make and do for others
Make and do for others
Spread good cheer
Spread good cheer

A Hanukkah Song
San Gabriel, Long Beach Area, Verdugo Hills Councils
 (Tune: 3 Blind Mice)

Eight bright lights, eight bright lights,
See how they glow, see how they glow,
They call to mind the Maccabees,
The struggle for our liberties,
The glory of their victories,
Eight bright lights.

Hanukkah Fun
Baltimore Area Council
Tune:  Mary Had A Little Lamb

Hanukkah is here at last,
Here at last, here at last.
Hanukkah is here at last.
Oh what fun we’ll have.

We spin the dreidel merrily,
Merrily, merrily.
We spin the dreidel merrily,
Oh what fun we’ll have.

The candles burn so happily,
Happily, happily.
The candles burn so happily,
Oh what fun we’ll have.

Every Year
Baltimore Area Council
Tune:  Old MacDonald Had A Farm

Every year we bake some pies,
Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum.
Coconut and lemon pies,
Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum.
With a big slice now and a glass of milk.
Extra slices if I may.
Every year we bake some pies,
Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum.

Every year we go see Grandma,
Ho, ho, ho, ho, ho.
She always lets us trim the tree.
Ho, ho, ho, ho, ho.
Up go the lights, and up goes the tinsel.
Everyone helps as we decorate it.
Every year we go see Grandma,
Ho, ho, ho, ho, ho.

Be Kind To Your Scouting Friends
Piedmont Area Council
(Tune: Stars and Stripes)

Be kind to your Scouting friends,
That's a pledge from one Scout to another.
Be kind to your leaders today,
'Cause for helping they don't get any pay.
Be kind to your neighbors and friends,
'Cause by caring you follow Scouting's letter.
Scouting and friendship are grand,
And as we grow, the world will know,
We've made things better.

Oh Christmas Tree
San Gabriel, Long Beach Area, Verdugo Hills Councils
 (Tune: O Tannenbaum)

Oh, Christmas tree! Oh Christmas tree!
Your needles falling down on me.
Oh Christmas tree! Oh Christmas tree!
Your needles falling down on me.
“It’s freshly cut,” the salesman said.
But now you’re home, I see you’re dead.
Oh Christmas tree! Oh Christmas tree!
Your needles falling down on me.

Oh Christmas tree! Oh Christmas tree!
You fell over on my TV.
Oh Christmas tree! Oh Christmas tree!
You fell over on my TV.
The cable lines are in a pinch,
I can’t watch Snoopy or the Grinch.
Oh Christmas tree! Oh Christmas tree
You fell over on my TV
Oh Christmas tree! Oh Christmas tree!
There’s something under you I see.

Oh Christmas tree! Oh Christmas tree!
There’s something under you I see.
Is it a present gaily wrapped?
No, it’s a blob of gooey sap.
Oh Christmas tree! Oh Christmas tree!
There’s something under you I see.
