Hallelujah, Iím a Bum

1. Oh, why donít I work
Like the other men do?
How the heck can I work
When the skies are so blue?

CH: Hallelujah! Iím a Bum
Hallelujah! bum again.
Hallelujah! Give us a handout,
And revive me again.

2. Oh, I love my boss
And my boss loves me.
And that is the reason
Iím so hun-gar-y.

3. Oh, the springtime has come
And Iím out of jail,
Without any money,
Without any bail.

4. I went to a house
And I asked for some bread.
A lady came out, says
"The Baker is dead."

5. I went to a house
And I knocked on the door.
The lady came out, says
"youíve been here before."

6. When springtime does come
Oh, wonít we have fun.
Weíll throw up our jobs
And weíll go on the bum.


Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes

Head, shoulders, knees and toes.
Head, shoulders, knees and toes.
And ears and eyes and mouth and noes.
Head, shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes.

(point to appropriate part of body, repeat song,
omit singing a(nother) part of the body on each
repitition, but, continue to point to omitted part(s)
until not singing anymore, only pointing)


Hog Calling Time

When it's hog calling time in Nebraska,
When it's hog calling time in Nebraska,
When it's hog calling time in Nebraska,
Then it's hog calling time in Nebraska,

(also see Lars Calling Time)


Hole in the Bottom of the Sea (follow along)

Thereís a hole in the bottom of the sea,
Thereís a hole in the bottom of the sea,
Thereís a hole,
Thereís a hole,
Thereís a hole in the bottom of the sea.

Thereís a hole in the bottom of the sea,
Thereís a hole in the bottom of the sea,
Thereís a log,
In the hole,
Thereís a hole in the bottom of the sea.

(continue until ...)

Thereís a smile, on the flea,
on the hair, on the wart,
on the toe, on the foot,
on the leg, on the frog,
on the bump, on the log
in the hole in the bottom of the sea.


Home on the Range

1. Oh give me a home, where the buffalo roam,
Where the dear and the antelope play.
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word,
And the skies are not cloudy all day.

CH: Home, home on the range.
Where the dear and the antelope play
Where seldom is heard, a discouraging word,
And the skies are not cloudy all day.

2. Where the air is so pure, the zephyrs so free,
The breezes so balmy and lite,
That I would not exchange, my home on the range,
For all the cities so birght.

3. How often at night, when the heavens are bright,
With the light from the glittering stars,
Have I stood there amazed, and asked as I gazed
If their glory exceeds that of ours.

4. Oh give me a land where the birght diamond sand,
Flows leisurely down the stream;
Where the graceful white swan goes sliding along,
Like a maid in a heavenly dream.

5. I love the wild flowers in this dear land of ours,
And the corlew I love to hear scream;
I love the white rocks and the antelope flocks,
Grazing on the great mountain tops green.


Hail! Hail! Scouting Spirit

Hail! Hail! Scouting Spirit, Best in the land;
Hail! Hail! Scouting Spirit, Loyan we stand.
Onward and upward we're treading,
Always alert to make Scouting ready,
We are prepared
Hail! Hail! Scouting Spirit.
Hail! Hail! Hail!


Hail Hail

Hail! Hail!, the gang's all here,
Never mind the weather, here we are together.
Hail! Hail!, the gang's all here,
So let the fun begin right now.


The Happy Wanderer

1. I love to go a wandering, along the mountain track,
And as I go, I love to sing, My knapsack on my back.

CH: Valderi, - Valdera, - Valderi, - Valdera ha ha ha ha ha
Valderi, - Valdera, My knapsack on my back. (Last line inserted)

2. I love to wander by the stream, that dances in the sun.
So joyously it calls to me, "Come! Join my happy song!"

3. I tip my hat to all I meet, and they wave back to me,
And blackbirds call so loud and sweet From ev'ry green-wood tree.

4. High overhead, the skylards wing, They never rest at home.
But just like me, they love to sing, As o'er the world we roam.

5. Oh, ma I go a-wandering, until the day I die!
Oh, may I always laugh and sing, Beneath God's clear blue sky!


Hello! Hello!
