Forbidden Song Lyriqs

Without dredging up a long buried thread, there ARE some songs that
used to be sung that were not grossly offensive that have faded into the
mist. While deliberate offense is never acceptable, it seems that plain
vanilla is never the most popular flavor at the ice cream parlor.
For the quiet voices, very late at night around the leaders-only campfire,
I hereby submit my favorite Tom Lehr song:
The Scouting Song
Be Prepared, that's the Boy Scouts marching song
Be Prepared as through life you march along
Be Prepared to hold your liquor pretty well, don't write naughty words
on walls if you can't spell.
Be Prepared to hide that pack of cigarettes, don't make book if you
cannot cover bets
Keep those reefers hidden where you're sure, that they will not be found,
and be careful not to smoke them when the Scoutmaster's around
for he only will insist that they be shared! . . .Be Prepared
BTW: Mike Walton's song is called "I'm for Love" by Hank Williams Jr.
It's available in album format at any music store worthy of the name.
