We Change the World

We Change the World

When I learned this song, there was actually American Sign Language that went with it. If you have a copy of the signs that goes along with this song, please share!

Change the world, come with me
Time to let our dreams fly free.
And it comes so easily, that is our way.
Every moment we’re alive, it’s our love that will survive,
In the Girl Scouts, together, We Change The World.

Sisters of every color, and friends from everywhere.
We all make the difference, when we show the world we care.
The Girl Scouts are our family,
And they show us what we can be
And I believe, together, We Change The World.

Change the world, come with me
Time to let our dreams fly free.
And it comes so easily, that is our way.
Every moment we’re alive, it’s our love that will survive,
In the Girl Scouts, together, We Change The World.

In a world with many faces, Girl Scouts find a way
To help in many places, along the trails we blaze.
We’ll light the light and do our share,
Reach out your hand and someone’s there,
And I believe, together, We Change The World.

Change the world, come with me
Time to let our dreams fly free.
And it comes so easily, that is our way.
Every moment we’re alive, it’s our love that will survive,
In the Girl Scouts, together, We Change The World.

Johnny Appleseed

Johnny Appleseed

With this song, we often changed the word Lord to Earth for the various religions and non-religious girls in the group.  It works just as well.

The Lord is good to me, and so I thank the Lord,
For giving me the things I need,
The sun and the rain and the appleseed,
The Lord is good to me.

And every seed that grows, shall grow into a tree.
And one day soon there’ll be apples there,
For everyone in the world to share,
The Lord is good to me.

The Little Green Frog

The Little Green Frog

There are a lot of great movements associated with this song. You can continue to sing the song faster or louder until it gets out of control. We also knew this song sometimes as MMM ACK Since most of the “EH”s were pronounced more like ACK.

  • Make frog eyes with hands next to head and open and close them when saying MMMM, EH
  • Swing hands in circle on hips for TRA LA LA LA LA
  • Honk truckers horn (pull down on an imaginary string with your arm bent 90 degrees) on HONK HONK
  • Lick hand when the Frog gets licked up

MMMM, EH Went the little green frog one day
MMMM, EH Went the little green frog
MMMM, EH Went the little green frog one day
and they all went MMMM, EH

WEELLLL, we all know frogs go..
TRA LA LA LA LA
TRA LA LA LA LA
TRA LA LA LA LA
we all know frogs go
TRA LA LA LA LA
they dont go MMMM, MMMM, EH!

HONK! HONK! went the big red truck one day
SPLIT, SPLAT! went the little green frog
Now the little green frog dont MMMM. EH no more
cuz he got licked up by a dog *slurping noise*

Linger

Linger

Mmm Mmm I want to linger,
Mmm Mmm a little longer,
Mmm Mmm a little longer here with you.

Mmm Mmm it’s such a perfect night,
Mmm Mmm it’s doesn’t seem quite right,
Mmm Mmm that this she be my last with you.

Mmm Mmm and come September,
Mmm Mmm we’ll still remember,
Mmm Mmm our camping days and friendship true.

Mmm Mmm and as the years go by,
Mmm Mmm I’ll think of you and sigh,
Mmm Mmm this is good night and not goodbye.
