Scouts-L Mail Archive for June of 1999: Song Request
Sat, 26 Jun 1999 17:56:30 -0500
And now for something completely different. Yesterday, at a youth summer
program offered by a local college, I saw some youngsters perform the most
marvelous action song. In keeping with the nautical theme, the song
involved various actions while singing about "bobbin' up and down",
"hitchin' up your pants", "climbin' up the rope", etc. It also had
reference to the "bulldog brig". It was hilarious!
At the conclusion, the crowd scattered with everyone going in a hundred
different directions and I was not able to catch up to the education student
who came up with this ditty. The other staff told me that it was not
written down and it was simply a song that she had sung since childhood.
I've been helping a friend with the program for Cub Day Camp this year which
has a Pirate theme. This song would be perfect! Does anyone know of the
song or where I could get the lyrics. I can fake the tune -- been doin' it
for years a pack meetings ;-)
I'd appreciate any help with this one. Thanks.
