Boys' camp song


We are a bunch of boys
Made out of fun and noise
Laughing all our cares away
Why should we not

We'd rather yell RAH RAH
And laugh and sing HA HA
How in the world did we get that way?
We're from Fort Scott!


Oh... we know some other guys
Who are not very wise
And the grumble all day long
But we do not

We'd rather yell RAH RAH
And laugh and sing HA HA
How in the world did we get that way?
We're from Fort Scott!

Three sharp-toothed buzzards


Three sharped-tooth buzzards
Three sharped-tooth buzzards
Three sharped-tooth buzz-zzz-ards
Sitting, in a, deadtree.

Oh look... one has flown away...

Two sharped-tooth buzzards
Two sharped-tooth buzzards
Two sharped-tooth buzz-zzz-ards
Sitting, in a, deadtree.

Oh look... one has flown away...

One sharped-tooth buzzard
One sharped-tooth buzzard
One sharped-tooth buzz-zzz-ard
Sitting, in a, deadtree.

Oh look... one has flown away...

No sharped-tooth buzzards
No sharped-tooth buzzards
No sharped-tooth buzz-zzz-ards
Sitting, in a, deadtree.

Oh look... one has returned... let us rejoice!

The other day, I met a bear


The other day, I met a bear,
A great big bear, in the woods out there.

He said to me, why don't you run;
I see you don't have any gun.

And so I ran, away from there,
But right behind me was that bear.

In front of me, I spied a tree,
a great big tree, oh glory be.

And so I jumped into the air,
but I missed that branch, on the way up there.

Now don't you fret, and don't you frown,
'cause I caught that branch, on the way back down.

This is the end, there is no more
until I meet, that bear once more.

Pooh corner


Christopher Robin and I walked along
Under branches lit up by the moon,
Posing our questions to Owl and Eeyore
As our days disappeared all too soon,
But I've wandered much further today than I should,
And I can't seem to find my way back to the Wood

So help me if you can
I've got to get back
To the House at Pooh Corner by one,
You'd be surprised
There's so much to be done,
Count all the bees in the hive.
Chase all the clouds from the sky.
Back to the days of Christopher Robin and Pooh.

Winnie the Pooh doesn't know what to do
Got a honey jar stuck on his nose,
He came to me asking help and advice
And from here no one knows where he goes,
So I sent him to ask of the Owl if he's there
How to loosen a jar from the nose of a bear

So help me if you can
I've got to get back
To the House at Pooh Corner by one,
You'd be surprised
There's so much to be done,
Count all the bees in the hive.
Chase all the clouds from the sky.
Back to the days of Christopher Robin and Pooh.

It's hard to explain how a few precious things
Seem to follow throughout all our lives,
After all's said and done I was watching my son
Sleeping there with my bear by his side,
So I tucked him in, I kissed him and as I was going
I swear that the old bear whispered "Boy welcome home"

Believe me if you can
I've finally come back
To the House at Pooh Corner by one,
What do you know
There's so much to be done,
Count all the bees in the hive,
Chase all the clouds from the sky.
Back to the days of Christopher Robin,
Back to the ways of Christopher Robin,
Back to the days of Pooh

Riding Song


Blood on the saddle, blood on the ground
great big puddles of blood all around.
Pity the cowboy, bloody and red
The old cow pony just stomped on his head.

I'm a Texan. I'm a Texan. I'm a Texan star and
I come from the West where the broncos are.
I can ride 'em. I can rope 'em. I can show you how it's done.
Come on all you Texans with you six-shooter guns.
Bah, bah, bah, bah. BANG! BANG!

I like to catch brass rings on the merry go round.
The merry go round that's me.
I like to play croquet, embroider, and crochet.
I like to participate in my own way.
I like the hobby horse on the merry go round.
The one that goes up and down...
and when my sweetie in the rear says I like Paul Revere,
I'd like to marry the merry go round.

Titanic


Oh they built the ship Titanic, to sail the ocean blue
and they said it was a ship that the water would never go through
It was on its maiden voyage when an iceberg hit the ship.
It was sad when the great ship went down.

Chorus:
It was sad, it was sad. Too Bad!
It was sad when the great ship went down to the bottom of the...
Husbands, and wives, little kiddies lost their lives
it was sad when the great ship went down.

Oh they were not far from England, they were not far from shore
When the rich refused to associate with the poor,
so they put them down below where they'd be the first to go.
It was sad when the great ship went down.

Chorus

They threw the lifeboats over, into the roaring sea
and the band struck up with Nearer my God to Thee,
Little children screamed and cried as the water rushed over the side.
It was sad when the great ship went down.

Chorus

The moral of this story is full of ginger ale
and if you are rich you should not be so frail,
for in the good Lord's eyes, you're the same as other guys.
It was sad when the great ship went down.

Chorus

Rise and Shine


Chorus:
Rise and shine and give God your glory, glory
Rise and shine and give God your glory, glory
Rise and shine and give God your glory, glory
Children of the Lord.

The Lord said to Noah, there's gonna be a floody, floody
Lord said to Noah, there's gonna be a floody, floody
Get those children out of the muddy, muddy
Children of the Lord.

Chorus

So Noah, he built him, he built him an arky, arky
Noah, he built him, he built him an arky, arky
Made it out of hickory barky, barky
Children of the Lord.

Chorus

The animals they came on, they came on by twosies, twosies
Animals, they came on, they came on by twosies, twosies
Elephants and kangaroosies, roosies
Children of the Lord.

Chorus

It rained, it rained for 40 daysies, daysies
Rained, it rained for 40 daysies, daysies
Nearly drove those animals crazies, crazies
Children of the Lord.

Chorus

The sun came out and dried up the landy, landy
Sun came out and dried up the landy, landy
Everything was fine and dandy, dandy
Children of the Lord.

Chorus

The animals they came off, they came off by threesies, threesies
Animals they came off, they came off by threesies, threesies
They had learned about their birds and beesies, beesies
Children of the Lord.

Chorus

Now this is the end of, the end of my story, story
This is the end of, the end of my story, story
Everything was hunky dory, dory
Children of the Lord.

Chorus

Darlin'


Darlin' you can't love one. One!
Darlin' you can't love one. One!
You can't love one and still have fun,

Birdie song


Way up in the sky
The little birds fly
While down in their nest
The little birds rest
With a wing on the left
And a wing on the right
The little birds sleep all through the night.
SHUT UP!!! THEY'RE SLEEPING!
The bright sun comes up
The dew falls away
Good morning, good morning
The little birds say.

Ain't It Great to Be Crazy?


A horse and a flea and three blind mice
Sat on a curbstone shooting dice
The horse he slipped and fell on the flea
"Whoops," said the flea, "There's a horse on me!"

Chorus:
Boom, boom, ain't it great to be crazy?
Boom, boom, ain't it great to be crazy?
Giddy and foolish the whole day through
Boom, boom, ain't it great to be crazy?

Way down South where bananas grow
A flea stepped on an elephant's toe
The elephant cried, with tears in his eyes
"Why don't you pick on someone your own size?"

Chorus

Way up North where there's ice and snow
There lived a penguin and his name was Joe
He got so tired of black and white
He wore pink slacks to the dance last night!

Chorus

Eli, Eli had some socks
A dollar a pair and a nickel a box
The more you wear 'em the better they get
And you put 'em in the water and they don't get wet!

Chorus

Called myself on the telephone
Just to hear that golden tone
Asked myself out for a date
Said be ready 'bout half-past eight!

Chorus

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

Chrous

Little Bunny Foo Foo


Little Bunny Foo Foo,
Hopping through the forest
Scooping up the field mice
And boppin' 'em on the head

Down came the good fairy and she said...
"Little Bunny Foo Foo,
I don't want to see you
Scooping up the field mice
And boppin' 'em on the head.
I'll give you three chances,
And if you don't behave
I'll turn you into a goon!"

The next day...
Little Bunny Foo Foo,
Hopping through the forest
Scooping up the field mice
And boppin' 'em on the head

Down came the good fairy and she said...

"Little Bunny Foo Foo,
I don't want to see you
Scooping up the field mice
And boppin' 'em on the head.
I'll give you two more chances,
And if you don't behave
I'll turn you into a goon!"

The next day...

Little Bunny Foo Foo,
Hopping through the forest
Scooping up the field mice
And boppin' 'em on the head

Down came the good fairy and she said...

"Little Bunny Foo Foo,
I don't want to see you
Scooping up the field mice
And boppin' 'em on the head.
I'll give you one more chance,
And if you don't behave
I'll turn you into a goon!"

The next day...

Little Bunny Foo Foo,
Hopping through the forest
Scooping up the field mice
And boppin' 'em on the head

Down came the good fairy and she said...

"Little Bunny Foo Foo,
I don't want to see you
Scooping up the field mice
And boppin' 'em on the head.
I gave you three chances
And you didn't behave
Now you're a goon! POOF!!"

The moral of the story is...
HARE TODAY, GOON TOMORROW

Gospel Light


This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine.
This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine.
This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine, let it shine, let it shine, all the time.

Put it under a bushel - NO, I'm gonna let it shine.
Put it under a bushel - NO, I'm gonna let it shine.
Put it under a bushel - NO, I'm gonna let it shine, let it shine, let it shine, all the time.

Don't you dare go "phew" it out, I'm gonna let it shine.
Don't you dare go "phew" it out, I'm gonna let it shine.
Don't you dare go "phew" it out, I'm gonna let it shine, let it shine, let it shine, all the time.

The Camp of My Dreams


The camp of my dreams has been found it seems
on top of a wooded hill.
Each camper there we have learned to love
on top of that wooded hill.
The nature trail has withstood storm and gail
through all of the years gone by.
All I ask of God is that here on this spot
is to come back to dear Fort Scott.

Alice


Alice, where are you going?
"Upstairs to take a bath."
Alice, with legs like toothpicks and
a neck like a gira-a-a-a-a-a-a-afe.
Alice, into the bathtub,
pulled out the plug and then.
OH MY Goodness,
OH MY SOUL,
there goes Alice down that hole.
Alice, where are you going?
Glub, Glub, Glub.

OH MY Goodness,

there goes Alice down that hole.
Alice, where are you going?
Glub, Glub, Glub.

Today

Refrain:
Today as the blossoms still cling to the vine,
I'll taste your strawberries,
I'll drink your sweet wine.
A million tomorrows shall all pass away,
never forgot all the joy that is mine, today.

Refrain

I'll be a dandy and I'll be a rover.
You'll know who I am by the songs that I sing.
I'll feast at your table; I'll sleep in your clover.
Who cares what tomorrow may bring?

Refrain

I can't be contented with yesterday's glories.
I can't live on promises winter and spring.
Today is the moment; now is my story.
I'll laugh and I'll cry and I'll sing.

Refrain
