A Scout's Christmas

By K. Meyers, D. Busker, and the boys of Den 4, Pack 1515, Alexandria, VA
(tune: Jingle Bells)

Dashing through the den,
With a rope held by each end,
Tying a bowline knot
Then showing what I've got.

Whittling with my knife
On a practice Dial soap bar.
I can hardly wait,
Scout camp can't be far.

Bait a hook,
Learn to cook,
Bike ro-de-os.
Neckerchief slides,
Canned food drives,
Learning to take photos.

Pancake mix,
Carving sticks,
Keeps us on the run.
Our families
Make all these
Memories so much fun.

Dashing through the camp,
Putting up the tents,
Popping all the corn,
Blowing that morning horn.

Of scout camp we all dream
We'll soon be old enough
Tigers, Bobcats, Wolves, and Bears
We're made of real tough stuff!

Half-hitch knots,
Setting up cots,
Playing fun new games.
Hammers and nails,
Compass and trails,
Arrow points are the thing.

Santa's coming,
We've been good,
As good as we can be...
Load our stocking
With a pocket knife,
Boy Scouts we want to be!

"I'm A Snowflake" by Karen Rogers

Tune: Clementine

I'm a snowflake, I'm a snowflake,
I'm a snowflake yes I am.
And I'm falling, yes I'm falling,
Right upon your little head.

Oh, I'm melting, Oh, I'm melting
Oh, I'm melting yes I am.
Aren't you glad that I'm not yellow,
But white like I am.

--Thanks to Chuck Bramlet, ASM Troop 323, Thunderbird District, Grand Canyon Council, Phoenix, Az. and the Thunderbird District, TRC, Cub Scout Roundtable resource packet, Nov 9, 1989.


Christmas Time

Tune: Jingle Bells
School is out, we won't pout,
Cubs shout "hip hooray!"
Something Special's coming soon,
And it's Christmas day.

Wrap the gift, trim the tree,
Mind your Mon and Dad.
You'll get presents if you do,
Boy, won't you be glad!

Santa's Coming

Tune: Brother John

Santa's coming, Santa's coming,
Can you hear? Can you hear?
Jingle Bells are jingling, we are happy singing.
Christmas Bells, Christmas Bells.

--Thanks to Chuck Bramlet, ASM Troop 323, Thunderbird District, Grand Canyon Council, Phoenix, Az. and the Thunderbird District, TRC, Cub Scout Roundtable resource packet, Nov 9, 1989.

Randall

Tune: Rudolph


Randall, the red-cheeked Cub Scout
Had a very cold, cold nose.
And if you ever noticed,
You could even say it flows.

All of the other Cubbies,
Used to laugh and point it out.
That Randall, the red-cheeked Cub Scout
Had a very runny snout.

Then one day the Den Leader
Took Randall out of sight (A clear violation of YPT! ;) )
And told him that it's time he knew
How to wipe his nose just right.

Now all the other Cubbies
Think Randall is a "Class-A" Scout.
Cause Randall, the red-cheeked Cub Scout
Finally learned to blow his snout.

--Thanks to Chuck Bramlet, ASM Troop 323, Thunderbird District, Grand Canyon Council, Phoenix, Az. and the Thunderbird District, TRC, Cub Scout Roundtable resource packet, Nov 9, 1989.

Rudy, the Red-Nosed Cub Scout

Rudy, the red-nosed Cub Scout,
Had a very runny nose;
And if you ever saw it,
You would prob ly say, Oh, Gross!

All of the other Cub Scouts
Used to look and say, Oh, Ick! ;
Parents wouldn t go near Rudy,
Cause they thought they would get sick.

Then one winter s Pack Meeting,
Akela said, Sign s Up! .
Rudy, with your nose so wet,
A box of Kleenex is what you ll get!

Then all the Cub Scouts cheered him,
As he blew and blew and blew;
Rudy, the red-nosed Cub Scout,
We will Do Our Best with you!

-- Words by Kelly Parker, CM, Pack 43, Thunderbird District, Grand Canyon Council (Phoenix, AZ)

Tommy the Cub Scout

Tune: Frosty

Tommy, the Cub Scout
Was a very happy boy.
With a uniform of blue and gold
And a Den that gave him joy.

Tommy, the Cub Scout
Earned his badges one by one.
He did his best and met the test.
A good citizen he's become.

He helps out other people when
He sees they need a lot.
He does his chores around the house
And feeds his dog (named Spot).

Tommy, the Cub Scout
Does his duty willingly.
Someday he'll join a Boy Scout Troop
And a fine man he will be.

--Thanks to Chuck Bramlet, ASM Troop 323, Thunderbird District, Grand Canyon Council, Phoenix, Az. and the Thunderbird District, TRC, Cub Scout Roundtable resource packet, Nov 9, 1989.
