Trustworthy Tommy is a song to help Webelos and new Scouts BSA learn the Scout Law. Webelos need to memorize the law to earn the Arrow of Light. New Scouts BSA must memorize it for the Tenderfoot rank. Some boys who have trouble with rote memorization will find that learning the song helps it stick with them. Eventually they should be able to say the Scout Law without the song going through their heads.
Amy wrote me and asked me if I would post a Cub Scout song book she made to fill a ticket for her Woodbadge course. My answer was yes!
ZM sang this song at Webelos camp and LC sang it at Scout camp and they’ve continued singing it since. This song is pure boy humor.
I Like Bananas, Coconuts, and Grapes is a very simple song, which makes it a perfect interlude for a Cub Scout meeting. It is sometimes called The Tarzan Song.
Here’s a song to go with this months aquatics theme. This is a classic camp song. There are lots of variations. If you want to ham it up even more, change your voice when singing the different verses to sound like a mama, papa, lady, etc.
The Fast Food Song is fun for Scouts. It is an action song and would fit in well with a nutrition themed meeting.
Here’s another song which LC sang at Scout camp and ZM sang at Webelos camp. This silly song actully has some real history behind it. Princess Patricia was a member of the British royal family. A Canadian infantry unit was named in her honor. She designed their regimental colors – a red flag with a purple circle in the center. In the middle were the gold letters VP, which stood for Victoria Patricia. The flag was called a Ric-A-Dam-Do, which means “cloth of your mother” in Gaelic.
Webelos need to learn about the Scout Law for their Webelos badge and their Arrow of Light Award. This classic Scout song is a fun way to help them learn it.
Here is a silly song for the Cub Scouts to sing on Thanksgiving. Use this for any of the Cub Scout music requirements
A while back, I posted the Fast Food Song. This week, I have a Star Wars song with the same tune. Sure, Star Wars isn’t science, but it is science fiction and it’s fun. That’s enough reason to use it to add some pizazz to any science themed meeting.
