Do you know the wonderful song ... My Uncle Roasted a Kangaroo.
It is sung to the tune of the Grand March from Gounod's opera Faust.
The tune is hummed by the group with great vigor. Generally, standing erect
Scout Staves and posed nobly....
MY UNCLE ROASTED A KANGAROO.
WAS THAT A VERY NICE THING TO DO?
GAVE ME THE GRISTLY BITS TO CHEW.
WAS THAT A VERY NICE THING
TO GIVE ME THE GRISTLY BITS OF A KANGAROO TO CHEW.
Repeat with Gusto.
Note: This song was popular for many years with the staff of "Walking Wood
Badge" led by Scouters from Oklahoma City and elsewhere
