Girl Scouts Together

Girl Scouts together, That is our song,
Winding the old trails, rocky and long.
Leaning our motto, living our creed,
Girl Scouts together in every good deed.

Girl Scouts together, Happy are we,
Friendly to neighbors far over the sea,
Faithful to country, loyal to home,
Known as true Girl Scouts wherever we roam.

Whene’er You Make a Promise

This might have very well been one of the first songs I learned as a Brownie.  It’s a classic Girl Scout song that we sang all the way through Senior scouts.  It’s a very short song, but lovely.

Whene’er you make a promise,
Consider well it’s importance
And when made,
Engrave it upon your heart.

Camptown Races

This song is also referred to as Camptown Ladies.  The doo-da is the most fun part of the song, at least for a young girl it was!

The Camptown ladies sing this song,
Doo-da, Doo-da
The Camptown racetrack’s five miles long
Oh, de doo-da day

Goin’ to run all night
Goin’ to run all day
I bet my money on a bob-tailed nag
Somebody bet on the gray

Oh, the long tailed filly and the big black horse,
Doo-da, doo-da
Come to a mud hole and they all cut across,
Oh, de doo-da day

Goin’ to run all night
Goin’ to run all day
I bet my money on a bob-tailed nag
Somebody bet on the gray

I went down there with my hat caved in,
Doo-da, doo-da
I came back home with a pocket full of tin
Oh, de doo-da day

Goin’ to run all night
Goin’ to run all day
I bet my money on a bob-tailed nag
Somebody bet on the gray

B-I-N-G-O

Everyone knows this song.  It’s an old favorite.  I assume I was originally taught this in kindergarten, but we utilized it at camp and in meetings as well .  Repeat and each time you sing the next verse substitute a letter with a clap.

There was a farmer who had a dog
And Bingo was his name-o.
B-I-N-G-O
B-I-N-G-O
B-I-N-G-O
And Bingo was his name-o

She’ll Be Coming Round the Mountain

I loved this song, including the little words in between.  All the words in parenthesis are shouted, not really sung.  We also made up little actions to them, like the motions of a truck horn during the “toot toot”.  Little pantomimes make the song extra fun.

She’ll be coming round the mountain
When she comes

(Toot, toot!)

She’ll be coming round the mountain
When she comes

(Toot, toot!)

She’ll be coming round the mountain,
She’ll be coming round the mountain,
She’ll be coming round the mountain
When she comes

(Toot, toot!)

She’ll be driving six white horses
When she comes

(Whoa back!)

She’ll be driving six white horses
When she comes

(Whoa back!)

She’ll be driving six white horses,
She’ll be driving six white horses,
She’ll be driving six white horses
When she comes

(Whoa back! Toot, toot!)

Oh, we’ll all go out to meet her
When she comes

(Hi babe!)

Oh, we’ll all go out to meet her
When she comes

(Hi babe!)

Oh, we’ll all go out to meet her,
We’ll all go out to meet her,
We’ll all go out to meet her
When she comes

(Hi babe!
Whoa back! Toot, toot!)

She’ll be wearing red pajamas
When she comes

(Scratch, scratch)

She’ll be wearing red pajamas
When she comes

(Scratch, scratch)

She’ll be wearing red pajamas,
She’ll be wearing red pajamas,
She’ll be wearing red pajamas
When she comes

(Scratch, scratch, Hi babe!
Whoa back! Toot, toot!)

She will have to sleep with Grandma
When she comes

(She snores!)

She will have to sleep with Grandma
When she comes

(She snores!)

She will have to sleep with Grandma,
She’ll have to sleep with Grandma,
She will have to sleep with Grandma
When she comes
