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
Just to give credit where credit is due.
Written by Tom Lehrer (math professor formerly from MIT now at Pomona
University CA because MIT wasn't much fun)
Performed on "An evening wasted with Tom Lehrer" I think
You might remember "Silent E" and "LY" from The Electric Company TV show in
the '70's or the songs "Pollution", "The Vatican Rag", and or "Poisoning
Pigeons in the Park"
Funny man but definately not the most PC music you ever heard.
I can post lyrics if there is an interest.
