I've been off a few days, but my younger Scouts loved "Grey Squirel" where
the words (silly little tune and words--popular with the 8 and under crowd)
included "grey squirel swish your bushey tail." All of the song had
motions, including picking up a nut, etc. All they did for the line in
question was wiggle the hips a bit. I'd never heard any complaints about
it. In fact, last year I had a Daisy troop who wanted (they brought it up
and voted unanimously) to do it at the parent meeting. The parents loved
it. I'll have to remember that some people would be offended. I just
thought of it as a silly little song about a wild animal.
