Some of my favourites:

1. A Training Course Song (Tune: My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean)

 

We came up to Sandy Beach Campsite,

A Guiding course for to run,

And once we arrived at the Campsite,

We sure had a whole lot of fun.

 

Chorus:          

Camping, camping, it’s good to be camping again, again.

Camping, camping, it’s good to be camping again.

 

The tents were erected quite quickly,

In various sizes and shapes,

They drooped at the corners most sickly

And hung from the ridge pole like grapes.

 

A session of feeding and cooking

Told how to cook food in a hole.

Of course, if you wanted to eat it,

You had to crawl in like a mole.

 

Fires were lit on the roadway,

Trees were chopped down in a rush,

And after some more about kitchens,

We all stomped around in the bush.


With the campfire, this course is ending,

A good one for all it has been,

The lights will be out by eleven

And then not a girl must be seen!

 

2. Aiken Drum - Scotland

 

There was a man lived in the moon,
lived in the moon, lived in the moon,
There was a man lived in the moon,
and his name was Aiken Drum.

 

Chorus:          

And he played upon a ladle, a ladle, a ladle,

And he played upon a ladle,

and his name was Aiken Drum.

 

And his hat was made of good cream cheese,
of good cream cheese, of good cream cheese,
And his hat was made of good cream cheese,
and his name was Aiken Drum.

 

And his coat was made of good roast beef,
of good roast beef, of good roast beef,
And his coat was made of good roast beef,
and his name was Aiken Drum.

 

And his buttons made of penny loaves,
of penny loaves, of penny loaves,
And his buttons made of penny loaves,
and his name was Aiken Drum.

 

And his breeches made of haggis bags,
haggis bags, haggis bags,
And his breeches made of haggis bags,
and his name was Aiken Drum.

 

3. Apples and Bananas

 

I like to eat, eat, eat apples and bananas
I like to eat, eat, eat apples and bananas

A
A lake to ate, ate, ate ay-ples and ba-nay-nays
A lake to ate, ate, ate ay-ples and ba-nay-nays

 

E
E leke to eat, eat, eat ee-ples and bee-nee-nees
E leke to eat, eat, eat ee-ples and bee-nee-nees

I
I like to ite, ite, ite i-ples and by-ny-nys
I like to ite, ite, ite i-ples and by-ny-nys

O

O loke to ote, ote, ote oh-ples and bo-no-nos

U
U luke to oot, oot, oot oo-ples and boo-noo-noos
U luke to oot, oot, oot oo-ples and boo-noo-noos

 

4. Bug Juice (Tune: On Top Of Old Smoky)

 

At camp with the Girl Guides,

They gave us a drink,

We thought it was Kool-aid,

Because it was pink.

 

But the thing that they told us,

Would have grossed out a moose,

For that good tasking pink drink,

Was really bug juice.

 

It looked fresh and fruity,

Like tasty Kool-aid,

But the bugs that were in it,

Were murdered with Raid.

 

We drank by the gallons,

We drank by the tons,

But then the next morning,

We all had the runs.

 

Next time you drink bug juice,

And a fly drives you mad,

He’s just getting even,

‘Cause you swallowed his dad.'

 

Gosh, darn, golly gee
Wish it wasn't so
Oh, well, what the heck
Pass me one more toe.

5. Cannibal Song (Tune -Row, Row, Row Your Boat)

 

Stir, stir, stir the soup
Taste it with a spoon
Yummy, yummy, yummy, yummy
Hope she'll be done soon.

 

Sniff, sniff, sniff the meat
Salt it like you should
Tasty, tasty, tasty, tasty
Humans taste so good.

Slurp, slurp, slurp it down
Never get enough
Hope we trap more humans soon
We're crazy 'bout this stuff.

Whew, phew, burp, I'm full
Think I'm going to pop
Phooey, phooey, phooey, phooey
Guess I'll have to stop.

Gosh, darn, golly gee
Wish it wasn't so
Oh, well, what the heck
Pass me one more toe.

 

I have a dear old grandpa,

His hair is turning gray,

He has a pair of whiskers,

They’re always in the way.

 

Chorus:          

Oh! They’re always in the way.

The cows eat them for hay.

They cover the dirt on grandpa’s shirt,

They’re always in the way.

 

I have a dear old uncle

He dries a Ford machine

He uses Grandpa’s whiskers

To strain the gasoline!

 

I have a dear old grandma

And every night she sleeps

She chews on Grandpa’s whiskers

And dreams they’re shredded wheat!

 

My Grandpa is a swimmer

No bathing suit for him!

He wraps his whiskers ‘round his waist

And then he dives right in!

 

Every Sunday morning

We gather in a group,

To watch old Grandpa’s whiskers

A-dangling in the soup!

 

 

I am slowly going crazy

(Left hand cupping right elbow, right hand on chin)

One, two, three, four, five, six, switch

(Switch: R. hand on left elbow, L. hand on chin)

Crazy going slowly am I

Six, five, four, three, two, one, switch

(Switch back)

 

Repeat song a number of times, getting faster and faster

 

8. Great Green Gobs

 

Great green globs of

Greasy, grimy gopher guts

Munched up monkey meat

Little birdies’ dirty feet

French-fried eyeballs

Swimming in a pool of barf

And I forgot my spoon

 

Great green globs of

Greasy, grimy gopher guts

Mutilated monkey feet

Chopped up baby parakeet

French-fried eyeballs

Sailing in a creamy puff

Oops! I forgot my spoon

But there are straws….

 

9. Herman the Worm

 

Sittin’ on my fencepost, chewing my bubblegum

(Chew, chew, chew, chew)

Playin’ with my yo-yo, wee-oo! Wee-oo!

When along came Herman the worm

And he was this big (make a motion as if measuring a tiny worm)

And I said: “Herman? What happened?

“I ate my Mother.”

 

(Repeat verse, with worm actions getting larger and larger for each of the following lines:)

 

“I ate my Father.:

“I ate my Brother.”

“I ate my Sister.”

“I ate my Dog.”

 

(Repeat verse one last time, with a time worm action for)

 

“I burped.”

 

10. Hump De Dump

 

Hump dee dump

Hump hump dee dud-dy dud-dy

Hump dee dump

Hump hump dee dud-dy dud-dy

 

Insert nursery rhyme to rhythm:

Mary had a little lamb whose fleece was white as snow

And everywhere that Mary went....

(Interruption, complete with hip thrust)

UH! Ain't that funky now?


11. I Wish I Were a Little Bar of Soap          

 

Oh I wish I were a little bar of soap

12. If All of the Raindrops

 

If all of the raindrops were lemon drops and gum drops,

Oh, what a world this would be!

I'd stand outside with my mouth open wide, goin'

Ah, ah ah ah, ah ah ah, ah ah ah,

If all of the raindrops were lemon drops and gum drops,

Oh, what a world this would be!

Oh, what a world this would be!

 

13. I’m A Nut

 

I'm a little acorn brown,
Sitting on the cold, cold ground.
Everybody steps on me,
That is why I'm cracked you see.

Chorus:
          

I'm a nut,
I'm a nut, 
I'm a nut, nut, nut-nut-nut.


Called myself on the telephone
Just to see if I was home.
Made a date for half past eight,
Better hurry or I'll be late!

Took myself to the picture show
Sat myself in the very last row
Wrapped my arms around my waist
Got so fresh I slapped my face!

 

Bought some roses at the store.
Told myself I wanted more.
That's why I broke up with me.
Now I am a nut that's free!

Gee, I miss me all the time.
Wonder if I'm doing fine.
Maybe I'll stop by to see
If I have a chance with me.

Coca-Cola went to town,
Pepsi-Cola shot him down.
Dr. Pepper fixed him up,
Now we all drink 7-Up.

 

14. I’m Being Eaten by a Boa Constrictor

There was a man named Michael Finnigan,

He grew whiskers on his chinnegan,

The wind came out and blew them in again,

Poor old Michael Finnigan, begin again.

 

There was an old man named Michael Finnegan,
He went fishing with a pinnegan,
Caught a fish and dropped it in again,
Poor old Michael Finnegan,
Begin again.

He grew fat and then grew thin again,
Then he died and had to begin again,
Poor old Michael Finnegan,
Begin again.

 

16. Miss Suzy Had a Steamboat

 

Miss Suzy had a steamboat

The steamboat had a bell (ding, ding)

Miss Suzy went to heaven

And the steamboat went to...


Hello, operator,

Please give me number 9

And if you disconnect me

I’ll kick you in the ...


Behind the iron curtain

There was a piece of glass

Miss Suzy sat upon it

And cut her little...


Ask me no more questions

Tell me no more lies

The boys are in the bathroom

Zipping down their...

 

Flies are in the meadow

And bees are in the park

All the little boys and girls

Are kissing in the dark, dark, dark!

 

17. Tarzan (Tune: Tongo)

 

Tarzan,

Swingin' on a rubber band

Tarzan,

Fell into a frying pan

Now Tarzan has a tan

 

Jane,

Flying in her aeroplane

Jane,

Hit by a hurricane

Now Jane has a pain

And Tarzan has a tan

 

Cheetah,

Walking down the streeta

Cheetah,

Hit by a cheese truck

Now Cheetah is velveeta

And Jane has a pain

And Tarzan has a tan

 

Shamu,

Swimming in the ocean blue

Shamu,

Smashed into a red canoe

Now Shamu's going to sue

And Cheetah is velveeta

And Jane has a pain

And Tarzan has a tan

 

Monkey

Was swinging from tree to tree

Monkey,

Got stung by a bumblebee

Now Monkey is so funky

And Shamu's gonna sue

And Cheetah is velveeta

And Jane has a pain

And Tarzan has a tan

 

Lion,

Has got to keep on trying

Now Lion loves flying

And Monkey is so funky

And Shamu's gonna sue

And Cheetah is velveeta

And Jane has a pain

And Tarzan has a tam

And that my friend is now the end!

TARZAN!

 

18. The Moose Song

 

A repeat after me!

 

There was a moose (there was a moose)
Who liked to drink a lot of juice
(who liked to drink a lot of juice)
There was a moose
(there was a moose)
Who liked to drink a lot of juice
(who liked to drink a lot of juice)

Chorus:          

Singing way-oh, way oh (singing way-oh, way-oh) 
Way-oh, way-oh, way-oh, way-oh (way-oh, way-oh,

way-oh, way-oh)

Way oh, way oh (way oh, way oh)

Way-oh, way-oh, way-oh, way-oh (way-oh, way-oh,

way-oh way-oh)

The moose's name was Fred.
He liked to drink his juice in bed.

He drank his juice with care,
But he spilled some in his hair.

Now he’s a sticky moose.
A moose covered in juice.

All his hair went stiff.
So he combed it in a quiff.

His friends began to laugh.
So he had to take a bath.

As the water went down,
Fred the moose began to drown.
Singing glug-glug-glug-glug

Now let's all count to five.
Fred the moose is back alive.

 

19. The Window (The Second-Story Window)

 

The window, the window

The second-story window

If you don't know a nursery rhyme

We'll throw you out the window!

 

Mary had a little lamb; its fleece was white as snow

And everywhere that Mary went -

She threw it out the window!

The window, the window...

 

(Repeat with other nursery rhymes until you run out! You can also divide your singing group into teams and sing this song as a competition.)

 

20. They Say at Guide Survivor Camp

 

They say at Guide Survivor Camp, the bugs have gone away

But every time you inhale there's something in your way!

 

Chorus:          

Oh, I don't want no more of Girl Guide Camp

Gee Mom, I wanna go

Back where the toilets flow

Gee Mom, I wanna go home.

 

They say at Guide Survivor Camp, the toast is mighty fine

A piece fell off the table and killed a pal of mine!

 

They say at Guide Survivor Camp, the beds are mighty fine

You wake up in the morning with wrinkles down your spine!

 

They say at Guide Survivor Camp, the eggs are mighty fine

One rolled off the table and started keeping time!

 

They say at Guide Survivor Camp, the cocoa's mighty fine

It's swell for cuts and bruises, and tastes like iodine!

 

They say at Guide Survivor Camp, the porridge is mighty fine

You save a little extra and give your shoes a shine!

 

The First Aider that we have here, they say she's mighty fine

But when I broke my finger, she broke the other nine!

 

The tents they have at Survivor Camp, they say they're really neat

But when you go inside them, they smell like stinky feet!

 

The latrines they have at Survivor Camp, they say they're mighty fine

When you sit upon them, they suck in your behind!

 

The showers that they have here, they say are mighty fine

When you turn them on, they squirt out yellow slim!

 

And now I've been to Guide Camp I think its mighty fine

I'm going back there next year to have another good time!

 

21. Three Little Angels

 

Three little angels all dressed in white

Tried to get to heaven on the end of a kite

But the kite tail was broken

And down they all fell

They couldn't get to heaven so they all went to....

 

Two little angels....

 

One little angel....


Three little devils all dressed in red

Tried to get to heaven on the end of a bed

But the bed post was broken

And down they all fell

They couldn't get to heaven so they all went to....

 

Two little devils...

 

One little devil...

 

Don't get excited; don't lose your head,

They couldn't get to heaven so they all went to BED!

 

22. Three Fisherman

 

There were three jolly fishermen.

There were three jolly fishermen.

Fisher, fisher, men, men, men. Fisher, fisher, men, men, men.

There were three jolly fishermen.

 

The first one's name was Abraham.

Abra, abra, ham, ham, ham. Abra, abra, ham, ham, ham.

They all sailed up to Jericho.

They should have gone to Amsterdam.

Amster, amster, shh, shh, shh. Amster, amster, shh, shh, shh.

They should have gone to Amsterdam.

 

You must not say that naughty word.

You must not say that naughty word.

Naughty, naughty, word, word, word. Naughty, naughty, word, word, word.

You must not say that naughty word.

 

I'm going to say it anyway.

I’m going to say it anyway.

Any, any, way , way, way. Any, any, way, way, way.

I’m going to say it anyway.

 

They all went down to Amster DAM.

They all went down to Amster DAM.

Amster, amster, DAM, DAM, DAM. Amster, amster, DAM, DAM, DAM.

They all went down to Amster DAM!

 

23. Worms

Everybody hates me!

Nobody likes me,

I'm going to the garden to eat some worms.

 

Chorus (Repeat after each verse):  

Big fat juicy ones

Long green slimy ones,

And itsy, bitsy, fuzzy, wuzzy worms.

Yum Yum.

 

First you get a bucket,

Then you get a shovel,

Oh how they wiggle and squirm.

 

Down goes the first one,

Down goes the second one,

Down goes the third little worm.

 

Round goes the first one

Round goes the second one

Round goes the third little worm.


Up comes the first one,

Up comes the second one,

Up comes the third little worm.


Everybody likes me,

Nobody hates me!

I'm going to the garden to eat some worms.

She who sings scares away her woes.
