On My Honor

People don't need to know my name
If I've done any harm then I'm to blame
If I've helped another then I've helped me
If I've opened up my eyes to see

Chorus:
On my honor, I will try
There's a duty to be done and I say aye
There's a reason here for a reason above
My honor is to try, and my duty is to love

I've tucked away a song or two
If you're feeling low, there's one for you
If you need a friend then I will come
And there's many more where I come from Chorus

Come with me where the fire burns bright
You can even see better by a candle's light
You can find more meaning in a campfire's glow
Than you'll ever find in a year or so.

We've made a promise to always keep
And to sing Day is Done before we sleep
We'll be girlscouts forever and when we're done,
They'll still be a'tryin and a'singin this song

Chorus

-- Thanks to Kathy Williams

  Make New Friends

Make new friends, but keep the old
One is silver, and the other's gold.

A circle is round that never ends,
And that's how long I'm gonna be your friend.

Where Have all the Daisies Gone...

This is sung to the tune of "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?"

Where have all the Daisies gone, long time growing
Where have all the Daisies gone, in just a year
Where have all the Daisies gone,
Gone to Brownies every one
They've got so much to learn,
They've got so much to learn.

Where have all the Brownies gone, growing up so fast,
Where have all the Brownies gone, it took three years.
Where have all the Brownies gone,
Gone to Juniors every one.
There's still some more to learn,
There's still some more to learn.

Where have all the Juniors gone, no longer little girls,
Where have all the Juniors gone, middle school's this fall.
Where have all the Juniors gone
Gone to Cadettes every one.
It's groovy, so they say,
It's groovy, so they say.

Where have all the Cadettes gone, young women standing tall,
Where have all the Cadettes gone, high school draws near.
Where have all the Cadettes gone,
Gone to Seniors every one.
We love to be Girl Scouts,
We love to be GIRL SCOUTS!

Can a Woman?

by Iris Hirsch of GS Central Maryland

(Tune: She'll Be Coming Round the Mountain)


Can a woman fly an airplane?
Yes she can, yes she can!
Can a woman build a building?
Yes she can, yes she can!

Can a woman fight a fire?
Can a woman change a tire?
Can a woman lead a choir?
Yes she can, yes she can!

Can a woman be a lawyer?
Yes she can, yes she can!
Can a woman fix an engine?
Yes she can, yes she can!

Can a woman be a drummer?
Can a woman be a plumber?
Can she play ball in the summer?
Yes she can, yes she can!

Can a woman be a doctor?
Yes she can, yes she can!
Can a woman drive a tractor?
Yes she can. yes she can!

Can a woman lead a nation?
Can she run a TV station?
Can she head a corporation?
Yes she can, yes she can!

Just you wait until we're older,
then you'll see
We'll be women in tomorrow's
history!

As we grow up through the years
We'll sing out loud and clear
Can we start the process here?
Yes we can, yes we can!!

On My Honor - Cookie Song

Chorus:
On my honor I will try
To sell Girl Scout cookies all day and night
We'll sell our cookies until they are gone.
Cause there's many more where they come from.

People don't need to know my name
They'll buy my cookies just the same
For three dollars a box, they get quite a treat
When they open their box to eat.

CHORUS

I've tucked away a box or two,
If you buy our cookies you'll have some to.
If you need samoas then we have some,
And there's plenty more where they came from.

CHORUS

We sell our cookies at the grocery store,
and we even go door to door.
Our Thin Mints, they are really great
So freeze them now before it's too late

CHORUS

We've set a goal that we plan to keep,
To sell fifty boxes before we fall asleep
So buy several boxes so when we're gone,
You can still be munching and singing this song

CHORUS

With our profits we have lots of fun.
We sell and sell nearly a ton.
Were going camping, and horse riding too
and we even get to sleep at the zoo

CHORUS

Our cookie sale lasts only two weeks.
But we have lots of fun with the people we meet.
So buy our cookies before we go.
Cause we won't be back for a year or so.

CHORUS

-- Thanks to Debbie, Totem Council

Some Alternative Verses to the Brownie Smile Song

I've got something in my pocket
That I found behind a log
My leader said to put it back
But I want to keep this frog

It's cool and green and slimy
And it wiggles in my hand
I've also got a wooly worm
And a pocket full of sand.

-- Thanks to Bev

 

I'm a Leader

(Tune: Battle Hymn of the Republic)

I was glad to have a girl because our first child was a son,
I thought of all the ruffles, all the frilly bows and fun.
I thought of how we'd sit and talk at night when day was done,
Wasn't I the foolish one.

She was only half past seven when they called me to the fore.
I said "I'm not equipped" They said "Oh, yes you are, what's more;
We'll train you in the basics, we'll outfit you for the corps"
Why couldn't I have had a son?

Glory, Glory I'm a leader.
How'd I get to be a leader?
All I did was have a daughter.
Is this the price I pay?

They taught me to be thrifty, to be thoughtful, to be true.
They taught me how to string beads like the noble Indians do.
I had to learn to dig a trench, and how to use it too.
And you should taste the stew!

I had to learn to sing songs that I didn't understand.
I learned to dance the polka and to make a rhythm band.
To think of what to do and then forget what I had planned.
And they say Scouting's grand.

Glory, Glory I'm a leader.
Me, they had to make a leader.
I can't even build a fire,
Let alone put up a tent!

We went walking in the woodlands, my Girl Scout troop and me.
The handbook says that nature has a wealth of sights to see.
It's true we sure were sights when we were found eventually,
And I do all this for free.

I'm not meant to be a leader, I don't know which bird is which.
My weiner fork's all burned up, we come home from hikes and itch.
The sit-upons all fell apart, I showed them the wrong stitch,
But no one wants to switch.

Glory, Glory I'm a leader.
Hallelujah, I'm a leader.
Tell me why I should be happy,
When no one envies me.

But even though I grumble and I mumble and I shout.
Though there are days I wonder what's the best way to get out.
I guess when all is said and done, there isn't any doubt.
I'm glad to be a Scout!

Glory, Glory I'm a leader.
Someone's got to be a leader.
They can carve it on my tombstone
"Here's a girl who did her best!"

-- Thanks to "Dusty", Diablo Shadows Association, San Francisco Bay Girl Scout Council

 

I'm a Daisy Girl Scout

(Tune: I'm a Little Teapot)

I'm a Daisy Girl Scout, yes I am
Here is my tunic, here is my pi.
When I do a good deed, hear me shout,
"I'm a Daisy, inside out!"

Daisy

(Tune: Bicycle Built for Two)

Daisy, Daisy, we honor your memory true
We are Girl Scouts all because of you.
We follow the path you started
And live the law you charted.
We grow and grow, for Juliette Low,
America's proud of you.

Make New Friends

Make new friends, but keep the old
One is silver and the other gold.
The circle is round, it has no end
That's how long I want to be your friend.

-- Thanks to Wendy Colby, Daisy Troop 153, Suncoast Girl Scout Council, Florida

Hippopotamus

What can make a hippopotamus Smile?
What can make him walk for more than a mile?
It's not a party with paper hats
Or bags of candy that makes him fat
That's not what Hippos do

They ooze in the gooze without any shoes
They wade in the water til their lips turn blue
That's what hippos do.

Ssshhh (continue in a whispered voice)

What can make a hippopotamus smile?
What can make him walk for more than a mile?
It's not a tune on the ol' violin
Or listening to the whistling wind
That's not what Hippos do.

They ooze in the gooze without any shoes
They wade in the water til their lips turn blue That's what hippos
Yes that's what hippos
Yes that's what hippos DO!

-- Thanks to Chopsticks of Totem Council, (Yeah Camp River Ranch!)

Daisies, Daisies

Daisies, Daisies, that is what we are called.
We are Girl Scouts, though we are very small.
We all learn the Girl Scout Promise.
You can depend upon us.
To "Be Prepared"
and we will share
Girl Scouting our whole life long.

-- Thanks to Donna M. Montgomery Troop Leader of Daisy Troop #5045 and Brownie Troop #5043 at Cesar Chavez Academy in Detroit, Michigan.

Girl Scouts Together

Girl Scouts together, that is our song
Winding the old trails, rocky and long
Learning our motto, living our creed
Girl Scouts together in every good deed.


Brownie Smile Song

I've got something in my pocket, it belongs across my face.
I keep it very close at hand, in a most convienient place.
I'm sure you couldn't guess it if you guessed a long, long while.
So I'll take it out and put it on, it's a Great Big Brownie Smile!
