Shaving Cream

{loadposition ShavingCream}

I have a sad story to tell you

It may hurt your feelings a bit

Last night when I walked into my bathroom

I stepped in a pile of …

Chorus (repeat after every verse):


Shaving cream, be nice and clean.


Shave everyday and you’ll always look keen.

 

I think I’ll break off with my girlfriend

Her antics are queer I’ll admit


Each time I say, ‘Darling, I love you’

She tells me that I’m full of …

Our baby fell out of the window


You’d think that her head would be split

But good luck was with her that morning

She fell in a barrel of …

An old lady died in a bathtub

She died from a terrible fit


In order to fulfill her wishes

She was buried in six feet of …

When I was in France with the army

One day I looked into my kit


I thought I would find me a sandwich

But the darn thing was loaded with …

And now, folks, my story is ended

I think it is time I should quit


If any of you feel offended


Stick your head in a barrel of …

 

Many more verses…


Our leader says Clean is a virtue,


On his face you will see not one zit.


Instead of washing with soap and hot water,

He scrubs with a handful of …

Last Saturday I went out hiking,


I like to keep physically fit,


But when I stopped for a rest break,

My boots were all covered with …

Let’s have a cheer for the camp staff,

They’re definitely our favorite!

But, every night at the campfire

They lead us and sing just like …

I thought I would make me some tie-dyes

And bought lots of colors for it.


But after I dyed all my T-shirts


They all were the color of …

Our leader made us all breakfast


I asked him what food was in it.


He laughed as he gave me a spoonful

And said it was rice, beans, and …

Our 4th day of hiking at Philmont


We were dehydrated a bit


We’d heard that Ponil had cold root beer

But all that they gave us was…

We’d all just descended Mt. Baldy

Our stomachs a bottomless pit

We just wanted Probars and jerky

But Baldy Town made us do …

While hiking, Joe spotted a black bear

He screamed like a girl cause of it


It left but Joe looked quite embarrassed

Then we noticed his pants filled with…

I asked to come out and play baseball

I’d just bought a new catchers mitt;


I asked you to throw me a fastball


but you threw me a big lump of …

Once while I was at the ball game,

The batter smashed out a hit.


But while he was running for second,

He slipped in a big pile of …

Last night we all had a big snowstorm,

And it’s time to shovel, isn’t it?


The only good thing about snow is,

It’s better than shoveling …

The Titanic

{loadposition TheTitanic}

Note: The Titanic (an old song, probably dating from as early as 1920).

 

Oh, they built the ship Titanic
 to sail the ocean blue


They thought they had a ship that the water wouldn’t go through but,

by God’s almighty hand the ship would never land


it was sad when the great ship went down.

CHORUS:
It was sad (so sad)
it was sad (too bad)


it was sad when the great ship went down
to the bottom of the …….


(husbands and wives, little children lost their lives)

it was sad when the great ship went down.

Well the ship was filled with sin


And the sides about to burst


When the Captain shouted:
”WOMEN AND CHILDREN FIRST”


All the wept and children cried


As the waves swept over the side


It was sad when the great ship went down.

CHORUS:

It was sad (so sad)
it was sad (too bad)


it was sad when the great ship went down
to the bottom of the …….


(husbands and wives, little children lost their lives)

it was sad when the great ship went down.


 

It was off the coast of England


Not very far from shore


Where the rich refuse to associate with the poor.

So they put them down below


And they were the first to go.


It was sad when the great ship went down.

CHORUS
It was sad (so sad)
it was sad (too bad)


it was sad when the great ship went down
to the bottom of the …….


(husbands and wives, little children lost their lives)

it was sad when the great ship went down.

Lady Esther turned around just to see her husband drown

as the ship Titanic made a gurgling sound.


So she wrapped herself in mink
as the ship began to sink.

It was sad when the great ship went down.

CHORUS
It was sad (so sad)
it was sad (too bad)


it was sad when the great ship went down
to the bottom of the …….


(husbands and wives, little children lost their lives)

it was sad when the great ship went down.

Well they built another ship
called the US 92


And the bow was painted red and the stern was painted blue

Well they christened her with beer


And she sank right off the pier


It was sad when the great ship went down.

CHORUS
It was sad (so sad)
it was sad (too bad)


it was sad when the great ship went down
to the bottom of the …….


(husbands and wives, little children lost their lives)


it was sad when the great ship went down.


 

The captain faced the bow with a teardrop in his eye


as he waved the last lifeboat goodbye.


He knew he’d made a slip
so he went down with the ship.


It was sad when the great ship went down, down, down.

CHORUS
It was sad (so sad)
it was sad (too bad)


it was sad when the great ship went down
to the bottom of the …….


(husbands and wives, little children lost their lives)


it was sad when the great ship went down.


 

So the moral of the story as you can plainly see


is to wear your life preserver whenever you’re at sea.

The Titanic never made it and never more shall be,


it was sad when the great ship went down, down, down.

CHORUS
It was sad (so sad)
it was sad (too bad)


it was sad when the great ship went down
to the bottom of the …….


(husbands and wives, little children lost their lives)

it was sad when the great ship went down.

The Canoe Song

{loadposition TheCanoeSong}

Oh, I was walking down the road one dark and dreary day,


I came across a billboard and much to my dismay,


The sign was torn and tattered from the storm the night before,

The wind and rain had done its work and this is what I saw.

Oh, smoke Coca-Cola cigarettes,

Wrigley spearmint beer,

Kennel-Ration dog food makes your complexion clear,

Simonize your baby with a Hershey’s candy bar,


And Texaco’s the beauty cream that’s used by all the stars.

Oh, plan our next vacation in a brand-new Frigidaire,

Learn to play the piano in your winter underwear,

Doctors say that babies should smoke until they’re three,

And people over sixty-five should bathe in Lipton tea! Hey!

 ______

Created by Marc Downs


Recorded by Jon Klemens


To the tune of “Supercalifragilisticexpealidocious”


Why is it called the Canoe Song?  Cuz we sang it on a Canoe Trip!

Philmont Hymn

{loadposition PhilmontHymn}

Silver on the Sage

Star-lit skies above

Aspen covered hills

Country that I love

Philmont here’s to thee

Scouting paradise


Out in God’s country Tonight

Wind in whispering pines

Eagle soaring high

Purple mountains rise

Against an azure sky

Philmont here’s to thee

Scouting paradise


Out in God’s country

Tonight

 

Philmont Hymn, by John Westfall, scout age 15, while camping at Cimarroncito Aug 17, 1945.

Scout Vespers

{loadposition ScoutVespers}

Softly falls the light of day,

While our campfire fades away.

Silently each Scout should ask

Have I done my daily task?

Have I kept my honor bright?

Can I guiltless sleep tonight?

Have I done and have I dared

Everything to be prepared?

 

Listen Lord, oh listen Lord,


As I whisper soft and low.


Bless my mom and Bless my dad,

These are things that they should know.

I will keep my honor Bright,


The oath and law will be my guide.


And mom and dad this you should know,

Deep in my heart I love you so.

Wild Mountain Thyme

{loadposition WildMountainThyme}

Oh, the summer time is coming,


And the trees all are blooming,


And the wild mountain thyme


Grows around the blooming heather.

 

Chorus:

Will you go, lassie, will you go?

And we’ll all go together


To pull wild mountain thyme


All around the blooming heather,

Will you go, lassie, go?

 

I will build my love a bower


By yon clear and crystal fountain,


And all around the bower,


I’ll pile flowers from the mountain.

Chorus

If my true love, she won’t have me,


I will surely find another


To pull wild mountain thyme


All around the blooming heather.

Chorus

Wild Mountain Thyme, modified from the Wm & Francis McPeake version, published 1957 closely paraphrases the Tannahill version of the song, earliest known publication date 1821; included under Fair Use guidelines, for personal use, not production or commercial use.

Star of the County Down

{loadposition StaroftheCountyDown}

Near Banbridge town, in the County Down

One morning in July


Down a pathway green came a sweet colleen

And she smiled as she passed me by.

Oh she looked so sweet from her two bare feet

To the sheen of her nut brown hair


Such a coaxing elf, sure I shook myself


To be sure I was really there.

Chorus:

And from Bantry Bay up to Derry Quay

And from Galway to Dublin town


No maid I’ve seen like the brown colleen

That I met in the County Down.

As she onward sped I shook my head

And I gazed with a feeling rare


And I said, says I, to a passerby
”Who’s the maid with the nut-brown hair?”

He smiled at me, and with pride says he, “She’s the gem of Ireland’s crown.

She’s young Rosie McCann from the banks of the Bann

She’s the star of the County Down.”

Chorus

I’ve travelled a bit, but never was hit

Since my roving career began.


But fair and square I surrendered there

To the charms of young Rosie McCann.

I’d a heart to let and no tenant yet

Did I meet with in shawl or gown


But in she went, and I asked no rent


From the star of the County Down.

Chorus

At the crossroads fair I’ll be surely there

And I’ll dress in my Sunday clothes


I’ll offer my arm and I will use my charm for the heart of the nut-brown rose.

No pipe I’ll smoke, no horse I’ll yoke


Though with rust my plow turns brown


Till a smiling bride by my own fireside


Sits the star of the County Down.

Chorus

Note: Colleen means young girl, it is Gaeilc or Old Irish, (spelled Cailin in Gaelic) Pathway in the original is the Gaelic word bóithrín, (pronounced boreen), a little road or path. The place names in the chorus mean across the four corners of Ireland, meaning that he did not find a girl as sweet in the whole country.

Botany Bay

{loadposition BotanyBay}

Chorus:

Farewell to your bricks and mortar


Farewell to your dirty lime


Farewell to your gangway and to your gang plank

To heck with your overtime


For the good ship Ragamuffin


Is lying at the quay


For to take old Pat with a shovel on his back


To the shores of Botany Bay

I went down to the harbor, where the big ship at anchor lays

To command a gang of navvys

I was told to engage
I stopped for a bit to take a bite before I went away


For to take a trip on an emigrant ship

To the shores of Botany Bay –

Chorus

The boss came up this morning

He says “Well, Pat you know,


If you didn’t get your navvys out

I’m afraid you’ll have to go”

So I asked him for my wages
I demanded all my pay


And I told him straight I was going to emigrate

To the shores of Botany Bay –

Chorus

And when I reach Australia
I’ll go and I’ll look for gold


There’s plenty there for digging up

Or so I have been told


Or else I’ll go back to my trade

Eight hundred bricks I’ll lay

And eight bob I’ll lift for an eight-hour shift

On the shores of Botany Bay –

Chorus

Note — a navvy , (rhymes with savvy), is British slang for a construction laborer;

a quay, (pronounced kay) is a docking place for a ship;

Botany Bay is a harbor in Australia;

a bob is slang for a British Shilling, worth about 10 cents.
