These came out of "The Campfire Book" published by Scouts Canada
Train Yell: A chant for the whole group. If you pace it right it sounds
like a train speeding up, and the last line is the train whistle.
Coffee, coffee (four times slowly)
Cheese and biscuits ( 4 times a bit faster)
Fruit and custard ( 4 times getting faster)
Beef and carrots ( 6 times faster still)
Fish and chips (8 times very fast)
Soo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oup! (one lonely whistle)
Two Too Twain - Cast: two children
Jack: Hey Joe, how do you say T-W-O?
Jack: How do you pronounce T-O-O?
Jack: Now tell me, what was the last name of the man who wrote Tom Sawyer?
Jack: Now say it all together.
Joe: Two Too Twain.
Jack: Very good. When you get a little older, I'll teach you how to say
Note: I've found that several of my less literary Scouts have problems with
this as they are not familiar with Mark Twain's writing.
Hope this helps you out.
