Make New Friends

Make new friends
But keep the old
One is silver and the others gold
A Circle’s round
It has no end
That’s how long I want to be your friend.

Brownie Smile Song

I’ve got something in my pocket; it belongs across my face
I keep it very close at hand in the most convenient place
I’m sure you wouldn’t guess it; if you guessed for a long, long while
So I’ll take it out and put it on; It’s a great big brownie smile
Smile, Brownie, Smile
Smile, Brownie, Smile
I’ll take it out and put it on
It’s a great big brownie smile!

Eek went the bug when I sprayed him with the bug spray
Spshhhhhhhhhhhhhhh……………….Eek!

Happiness Runs

Happiness runs in a circular motion
Floating Like a little boat upon the sea
Everybody is a part of everything anyway
You can be happy if you set yourself free

Happiness runs, happiness runs, happiness runs, happiness runs
Happiness runs, happiness runs, happiness runs, happiness runs

The Donut Shop

Well, I walked around the corner and I walked around the block
And I walked right into a donut shop
And I picked up a donut fresh from the grease
And I handed the lady a five cent piece
Well, she looked at the nickel and she looked at me
And she said, “this nickel isn’t good for me
There’s a hole in the middle and it goes right through!”
I said,” There’s a hole in my donut, too!”
Thanks for the Donut. GOOD-BYE!

BARGES

Out of my window looking through the night
I can see the barges flickering light
Silently flows the river to the sea
And the barges too go silently,
** Barges I would like to go with you
I would like to sail the ocean blue
Barges have you treasures in your hold?
Do you fight with pirates brave and bold?
Out of my window looking through the night
I can see the barges flickering light
Starboard shines green and port is glowing red
I can see the barges far ahead. **

Moon on the Meadow

Moon on the meadow, bugs in our ears
smoke in our eyes, wet wood and tears
up on the meadow, water somewhere
we were the only ones there
Wild horses and sunshine dry lakes and creeks
Finding a love there everyone seeks
Hiking through rainbows sunsets and stars
Just finding out who you are
We will return there one lucky day
Our hearts will guide us they know the way
People in cities can’t understand
Falling in love with the land
Moon on the meadow, bugs in our ears
smoke in our eyes, wet wood and tears
up on the meadow, water somewhere
With you my friend I am there

Daisies in the Sun

**May all of your dreams bloom like daisies in the sun
May you always have stars in your eyes
May you not stop running; not until your race is won
May you always have blue skies
A dream is something you can make to keep within your heart
To build on when you’re happy; or when your world’s been torn apart
A dream is something all your own that no one else can steal
A dream is something you can make come real **(Chorus)
You can share a laugh with any stranger you may meet
You can share your money with a stranger on the street
But you can only share a dream when love has set it free
Please won’t you share yours with me **(Chorus)

Percy the Paleface Polar Bear

(Repeat Song)
Way up in the land of ice and snow… where the temperature drops to 40 below
Who’s the friendliest bear we know? It’s Percy, the Pale Face Polar Bear
He sleeps all day, and then at night
He catches a few fish by the pale moonlight
He has no worries has no cares
He’s Percy the Pale Face Polar Bear
Then one day, a hunter came… grabbed poor Percy by the snout
He put him a great big cage…
And he howled and he growled but he couldn’t get out
Now he’s living in a zoo… funny thing is he likes it there to
Because he met his girlfriend there
And she loves
Percy the Pale Face Polar Bear Who?
Percy the Pale Face Polar Bear

Known as true Girl Scouts wherever we roam.

On My Honor

There’s a reason to be here, for a reason above
My honor is to try and my duty is to love
People don’t have to know my name; if I’ve done any harm, then I’m to blame
If I’ve helped someone, then I’ve helped me; and opened up my eyes to see **(Chorus)
Tucked away, a song or two; if you’re feelin’ low, there’s one for you
If you need a friend, then I will come; there’s plenty more friend where I come from **(Chorus)

Come and sit where the fire burns bright; you can see even more by candlelight
You can find more meaning in a campfire’s glow, than you’ll ever find in a year or so **(Chorus)

We’ll be Girl Scouts together and when we’re grown,
we’ll still be a tryin’ and a singin’ our song **(Chorus)

You can plant a watermelon at the top of my grave and let the juice (slurp) run through

Our poor bird; take thy flight
High above the mountains; the trees at night

One For the Money

**One for the money, I’ll sing for a penny; Two for the show, any song that I know
Three to make ready, the wide road is calling to go
As I have traveled all over this land, there is one sad thing I have found
When the wide road calls you leave friends and all; leaving this song behind **(Chorus)

On the Loose

**On the loose to climb a mountain, On the loose where I am free,
On the loose to live my life the way I think my life should be.
For I only have a moment, and a whole world yet to see.
I'll be looking for tomorrow on the loose.

Have you ever watched the sunrise turn the sky completely red?
Have you slept beneath the moon and stars, with a pine bough for your head?
Do you sit and talked with friends, though a word is never said?
Then you've been just like me out on the loose.
**Chorus

There's a trail that I'll be hiking just to see where it might go,
Many places yet to visit, many people yet to know.
So in following my dreams, I will live and I will grow,
On the trail that's waiting out there on the loose.
**Chorus

So in search of love and laughter, I’ll be traveling cross this land.
Never sure of where I'm going, ‘cause I haven't any plans.
And in time when you are ready, come and join me take my hand.
And together we'll share life out on the loose.
**Chorus

Lollipop

Oh, I’d rather suck on a lemondrop than try my luck with a lollipop
‘Cause I always drop my lollipop and it gets all over icky
Ooh, it makes me sick the way it sticks; it get all over my hair and icks

I’ve tried and tried, but still I can’t find, a lollipop (pop) that’s halfway refined
So, I’d rather suck on a lemondrop than try my luck with a lollipop
‘Cause I always drop my lollipop and it gets all over icky, icky, icky….blah!!!

I woke up Monday mornin

And if he hollers, hollers, hollers,

The toast did a flip flop
And landed in the sink **CHORUS

He rode into Chicago just to give the west a rest
He wore a big sombrero and two pistols by his side
And everywhere he went he gave his WAR HOOP!!!!
**CHORUS Oh what a BIG bold man was this desperado
From crippled creek way down in Colorado
And he horsed around like a big tornado and
Everywhere he went he gave his WAR HOOP!!!!
He went to Coney Island just to take in all the sights
He saw the crazy tourists and the girls all dressed in tights
It got him so excited that he shot out all the lights
And everywhere he went he gave his WAR HOOP!!!! **CHORUS
A big Ol’ fat policeman came a walkin down the street
The happy desperado came a strollin down the street
He took him by the collar and he took him by the seat
And threw him where he couldn’t give his WAR HOOP!!! **CHORUS

BINGO

There was a farmer had a dog
And BINGO was his name oh
B-I-N-G-O, B-I-N-G-O, B-I-N-G-O
And Bingo was his name Oh.

It’s a treat to put your feet in the Mississippi mud
Mud, Mud, Mud, Mud, Mud, Mississippi Mud!
I’m southern born, I’m southern bred and when I die,

Today

**Today, while the blossoms still cling to the vine
I’ll taste your strawberries, I’ll drink your sweet wine
A million tomorrows shall all pass away
Ere I forget all the joy’s that are mine, Today
Now I’ll be a dandy, and I’ll be a rover
You’ll know who I am by the song that I sing
I’ll feast at your table, I’ll sleep in your clover
Who cares what tomorrow may bring **CHORUS
I can’t be contented with yesterday’s glory
I can’t live on promises winter to spring
Today is my moment ,and now is my story
I’ll laugh and I’ll cry and I’ll sing **CHORUS

Mmmm Hmmm I want to linger
Mmmm Hmmm a little longer
MmmmHmmm a little longer here with You…
MmmmHmmm it doesn’t seem quite right
MmmmHmmm on such a special night
Mmmm Hmmm that this should be my last with you…
Mmmm Hmmm and come September
Mmmm Hmmm we’ll all remember
Mmmm Hmmm our camping days
And friendships true
Mmmm Hmmm and as the years go by
Mmmm Hmmm we’ll all look back and sigh
Mmmm Hmmm it was goodnight and not Goodbye.

Green Trees

Green trees around us
Blue skies above
Friends all around us
In a world filled with love
Taps sounding softly
Hearts beating true
Girl Scout sisters, sing goodnight to you……..

Day is done, gone the sun
From the lake, from the hills, From the sky
All is well
Safely rest
