Started by a lady named Juliette Low
In 1912 she started this group
In this group you'll find your troop

Girl Scout Octoberfest Cadence

Tune: General Army Cadence

Girl Scouts of the USA!
We are here to shout and say:
Happy, happy Oktoberfest;
Come on in and be our guest.

Chorus: Sound off, 1, 2
Sound off, 3, 4
Bring it on down, 1, 2, 3, 4, 1, 2, 3-4!

We are Girl Scouts, it is true!
We love life, and so can you!
Fun and learning, service too;
Don't have time to feel real blue.

Now my friends and now my foes,
Don't have time for all your woes!
Marching down this old street;
Marching down with dancing feet.

Girl Scouts teach and Girl Scouts learn;
Making campfires that really do burn,
Tying knots and lashing trees,
Studying those honeybees.

Nature's fine and science too,
Gives Girl Scouts new things to do.
Chemistry, and computers, yes;
'Cause learning's what we love the best.

Listen girls, now listen well,
Scouting's great, now come and yell.
Scouting's great, it takes some time'
We even learn to do some mime.

Scouting's more than cookies now;
Planes and trains and cars, oh wow!
History and crafts too,
Makes Scouting fun for me and you.

Join with us and have some fun,
Learning stuff 'til day is done.
Girls you too can be a Scout,
Just like us, come on out.

Girl Scouts Together


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

Girl Scouts together, happy are we,
Friendly to neighbors far o'er the sea.
Faithful to country, loyal to home
Known as true Girl Scouts wherever we roam.

The Scout's Winter Song

Tune of "If You're Happy & You Know It"

If you have a cold and you know it blow your nose.
If you have a cold and you know it blow your nose.
If your really have a cold, then grab just one of those,
If you really have a cold, blow your nose.

If you're a Scout and you know it say 'Do Your Best'.
If you're a Scout and you know it say 'Do Your Best'.
If you're a Scout and you know it, then your deeds will surely show it.
If you're a Scout and you know it say 'Do Your Best'.

If you're in a snowball fight, duck your head.
If you're in a snowball fight, duck your head.
If you're in a snowball fight, then don't freeze up in fright.
If you're in a snowball fight, duck your head.

If you sing our winter song, then do all three.
If you sing our winter song, then do all three.
If you sing our winter song, then the cheer will keep you warm.
If you sing our winter song, then do all three.


Where Every Girl Has a Voice

Words and music by Melinda Caroll

I have my own voice, I dream my own dreams;
I make my own choice, To follow or to lead.
And I want to live my life becoming a part of a better world,
Through the beauty of her every song, through the voice of each girl.

Chorus
And I belong to a rainbow of nations, Peace is the road I am taking.
And I am strong making my own choice, Where every girl has a voice.

I see through a young girl's eyes, I feel through a woman's touch;
I reach across time and space, Toward a vision I hold for much.
And we may look different, But in our hearts our desire's the same,
And the light we may shine in this world is one single flame.

Repeat Chorus

And we belong to a rainbow of nations.
Peace is the road we are taking.
And we are strong making our own choice,
Where every girl has a voice.


Bridge

In the darkest night there'll always be, hope for a new tomorrow.
When voices of this global village lead, here find the dreams we will follow.


Land of the Silver Birch (Canada)

Land of the silver birch, home of the beaver,
Where still the mighty moose wander at will.

Blue lake and rocky shore, I will return once more.
Boom di di eye di, boom di di eye di,
Boom di di eye die boom.

My heart is sick for you, here in the lowlands.
I will return to you, hills of the north.

Blue lake and rocky shore, I will return once more.
Boom di di eye di, boom di di eye di,
Boom di di eye die boom.

Swift as silverfish, canoe of birch bark.
Thy mighty waterways carry me forth.

Blue lake and rocky shore, I will return once more.
Boom di di eye di, boom di di eye di,
boom di di eye die boom.

There were the blue lake lies I'll set my wigwam,
Close to the water's edge, silent and still.

Blue lake and rocky shore, I will return once more.
Boom di di eye di, boom di di eye di,
Boom di di eye die boom.


Can A Woman?

to the tune of She'll Be Comin' Round The Mountain. Lyrics by Iris Hirsch

Can a woman fly an airplane? Yes she can, yes she can.
Can a woman build a building? Yes she can, yes she can.
Can a woman fight a fire? Can a woman change a tire?
Can a woman lead a choir? Yes she can, yes she can.
Can a woman be a lawyer? Yes she can, yes she can.
Can a woman fix an engine? Yes she can, yes she can.
Can a woman be a drummer? Can a woman be a plumber?
Can she play ball in the summer? Yes she can, yes she can.
Can a woman be a doctor? Yes she can, yes she can.
Can a woman drive a tractor? Yes she can, yes she can.
Can a woman lead a nation? Can she run a TV station?
Can she head a corporation? Yes she can, yes she can.
Just you wait until we're older then you'll see,
We'll be women in tomorrow's history,
As we grow up through the years, We will sing out loud and clear,
Can we start the process here? Yes we can, yes we can!


A Smile is Quite a Funny Thing

Tune: Auld Lang Syne

A smile is quite a funny thing.
It wrinkles up your face,
And when it's gone you never find
It's secret hiding place.
But far more wonderful it is,
To see what smiles can do.
You smile at one, he smiles at you,
And so one smile makes two.
He smiles at someone, since you smile,
And then that one smiles back,
And that one smiles until, in truth,
You fail in keeping track.
And since a smile can do great good,
By cheering hearts of care.
Let's smile and not forget the fact
That smiles go everywhere.


Boom Chicka Boom

I said a-boom-chick-a-boom! (Group echoes)
I said a-boom-chick-a-boom! (Group echoes)
I said a-boom-chick-a-rock-a-chick-a-rock-a-chick-a-boom! (Group echoes)
Uh-huh! (Group echoes)
On Yeah! (Group echoes)
This time! (Group echoes)
We sing! (Group echoes)
HIGHER!

Each time a leader adds a different variation such as: Lower, Whisper, Louder, Groovy,


The Light of the Girl Scouts

Chorus: I am a Girl Scout, and I carry the light for all the world to see.
I am a Girl Scout, and I carry the light to guide my sisters and me.

Daisies like flowers begin to grow and bloom early in spring,
And as they grow they will learn the joy that Girl Scouting can bring.
I see the light in a Brownie's eyes as she receives her first pin,
Then a Junior girl helps someone, and she begins to grin.
A Cadette girl takes her first step from home to a place she's never been,
And a Senior girl finds her own special world as we build a fire within.
all of these girls and all of these things are part of what we are today;
The things they've taught, the things we've shared, help girls in every way.


Camp/Troop Boogie

Chorus:
Hands up! Cha, cha, cha, cha!
Hands down! Cha, cha, cha, cha!
Do the boogie! Cha, cha, cha, cha!
To the front, to the back, to the side by side!
To the front, to the back, to the side by side!

Ladies and gents and campers too
Camp/troop _____'s got a boogie for you

You gotta turn around, and touch the ground
And step back, and step back and boogie on down

Went to the kitchen to eat a piece of cake
Then I thought about the campers and I ate the whole plate!

Went to waterfront, thought I'd sail
But all I did, was bail, bail, bail!

Went to the nurse, to get a pill
Came back feeling, mighty ill!

Went to the pool, thought I'd drown
Then I thought about the campers and I couldn't go down!

Went to the lake, saw some mosquitos
Came at me like flying torpedoes!

(Actions: Do what the words say. Clap during verses)


The More We Get Together

The more we get together,
Together, together;
The more we get together,
The happier we'll be.
For your friends are my friend,
And my friends are your friends.
Oh, the more we get together,
The happier we'll be.
