I have been told that the tune to "I'm Gonna Hire a Boy Scout" is
a Country and Western song:
"I'm Gonna Hire a Wino to Decorate our Home".
Since I don't normally care for either of those kinds of music,
I couldn't say for sure. But I did learn it and Jay & I did do it
this summer at camp, Fri nites, when the families were there.
And yes, a lot of Scoutmasters got their sides elbowed,
repeatedly, by their nearest and dearest as the words were sung.
(This was actually the ONLY time no one complained about my
poor singing ability!)
