I used to love "picture a girl Guide" as a Guide - for one of our entertainments we did a picture a girl guide skit complete with huge amounts of ketchup!

My Guides taught me a new one last weekend -

Willie had a goldfish, a goldfish a goldfish,
Willie had a goldfish, a goldfish he had,

He swam in the morning,
He swam in the night,
He swam in the bathtub and bit off his

Willie had a goldfish a goldfish a goldfish
Willie had a goldfish a goldfish he had!

It left my asst Guider in hysterics!!

our guides, brownies and leaders like this song 1) He Jumped Without A Parachute
Charlie was a parachutist in the RAF,
Charlie was a parachutist in the RAF,
Charlie was a parachutist in the RAF,
But he ain't gonna jump no more

He jumped without a parachute from twenty thousand feet
He jumped without a parachute from twenty thousand feet
He jumped without a parachute from twenty thousand feet
And he aint gonna jump no more

Chorus
Glory glory what a horrible of a way to die
When you’re wearing frilly knickers
And you don’t know how to fly
Glory glory what a horrible of a way to die
And he aint gonna jump no more

They scraped him off the runway like a lump of strawberry jam (3x)
And He aint .............
Chorus
They put him in a matchbox and they sent him home to mum (3x)
And he aint...........
Chorus
She put him on the mantle piece for everyone to see (3x)
And he aint........
Chorus
She put him on the table when the Vicar came to tea (3x)
And he aint........
Chorus
The Vicar spread him on some toast and said what lovely jam (3x)
And he aint.....
Chorus
The vicar threw him up again and flushed him down the loo
And he aint.....
Chorus

I used to sing 'he jumped from 50,000 feet' with the Army Cadets although the chorus wasn't acceptable a guide!!! and I forgot the'clean version!!!
the versus we alittle different to the above too-

'Our sargent major jumped from 40,000 feet..'
'the scrapped him off the runway with a rusty silverspoon...'
'they popped him in a jam jar and then sent him home to mum...'
'she put him on the mantlepiece for every one to see....'
'the pastor came a callin' and had strawberry jam for tea...'

Glory, Glory what a hellava way to die
with a pace stick up your ******(bottom???)
and a bullet in your eye
glory glory what a hellava way to die
and he ain't gonna jump no more

oh you feel naughty posting things like this!!! LOL :D

This is one I learnt as a Guide in mid 80's and have been told it is not PC!

HONEY

Honey can't luv one, Honey can't luv one,
You can't luv one and still have fun,
Honey can't luve one.....

CHORUS
La-de-da, Oh Boy!, Gee Whizz, Hot Stuff, Cluck, cluck (wolf whistle)

Honey can't luv two and still be true.

Honey can't luv three and still luv me.

Honey can't luv four and still want more.

Honey can't luv five and still stay alive.

Honey can't luv six and still play tricks.

Honey can't luv seven and still get to heaven.

Honey can't luv eight and still go straight.

Honey can't luv nine and still be mine.

Honey can't luv ten 'cause there ain't enough men.
I sang that one in america and tried to teach it to my guides on last camp but we sang it

Darlin' you can't love one Darlin' you can't love one
You can't love one and still have fun
So I'm leaving on the midnight train

Oh gee hi Jim Hubba Bubba What a man!

Same endings to each one though although we allowed the kids to change them sometimes.

and the end was "You can't love 10 so kiss me again and to heck with the midnight train"

Tom the Toad
Tune: Oh Christmas Tree

Oh, Tom the toad, oh Tom the toad
Why are you lying in the road?
Oh, Tom the toad, oh Tom the toad
Why are you lying in the road?
You did not see that car ahead
That's why you're marked with tire tread
Oh, Tom the toad, oh Tom the toad
Why are you lying in the road?

I'm not sure if this has already been posted but its one of them echoey songs.

There was a bird
(There was a bird)
With a yellow bill
(With a yellow bill)
It landed on
(It landed on)
My Window Sill
(My Window Sill)
I coaxed it in
(I coaxed it in)
With a piece of Cheese
(With a piece of cheese)
And then I smashed
(And then I smashed)
It's Little Knees
(It's Little knees)

Then you repeat the first 10 lines but with the following on the end

I coaxed it in...
With a piece of bread...
And then I smashed...
It's little head...
(Repeating each line of course)

Theres also instead of 'I coaxed it in'
I put him in
(I put him in)
An electric Toaster
(An electric Toaster)

The Last verse is:
There was a bird
(There was a bird)
With a yellow bill
(With a yellow bill)
It landed on
(It landed on)
My toilet seat
(My Toilet seat)
I pushed it in
(I pushed it in)
And pulled the chain
(And pulled the chain)
I never saw
(I never saw)
That bird again!
(Thats bird again!)

How Lovely, eh?

Theres always Charlie was a pigeon, and Yogi Bear too!

If it's still possible I'd like a copy of an adult song book. Having our first SS campfire and they want to sing songs they didn't/couldn't sing at guides!
