With all the talk over things that might not be (politically) correct,
proper, or polite, or apropos for use in Scouting, I'm surprised no one has
mentioned this song yet.
IME, several places have forbidden the use of this song or several of its
verses. In particular, the executioner is a verse not like as well as
several I have not seen here (and some of which I will contribute...)
Just consider yourselves advised that this may cause trouble in your area...
To add to the list:
(most of these were "sung" by a group from OH that attended our camp in NC
this past summer and could be considered a bit "naughty" by some.)
Jockey: Grab the bridle, grab the bit, watch out for that pile
Truck Driver: Here's a curve, there's a curve (points to cuves in road).
There's a set of curves (makes sign intimating woman's figure)
Scoutmaster: Do this, do that, while I sit around and get fat.
There were others but my train is getting close to Chicago now ...
