Troop 463's Song Book




Make New Friends

Make new friends
But keep the old,
One is silver
And the other's gold.

A circle's round,
It has no end,
That's how long
I want to be your friend.





America
(My Country 'Tis of Thee)

My country 'tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing.
Land where my fathers died,
Land of the pilgrims' pride,
From ev'ry mountain side
Let freedom ring.




Taps

Day is done; gone the sun,
From the lakes, from the hills, from the sky.
All is well, safely rest.
God is nigh.

Fading light dims the sight,
And a star lights the sky, gleaming bright;
From afar, drawing nigh, falls the night.

Thanks and praise for our days
'Neath the sun, 'neath the stars, 'neath the sky;
As we go, this we know:
God is nigh.





Johnny Appleseed

Oh, the Lord is good to me.
And now I thank the Lord,
for giving me the things I need:
the sun and the rain and the apple tree.
Oh, the Lord is good to me.
Amen.





Barges

Out of my window looking in 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 in the night,
I can see the barges flickering light.
Starboard shines green and port is glowing red,
You can see them flickering far ahead.
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?





On My Honor

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 love.

People don't need to know my name.
If I do any harm, then I'm to blame.
When I help another, I help me,
If I've opened up my eyes to see.

Chorus

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

Chorus

Come with me where a fire burns bright.
We can even see better in a candle's light.
But we find more meaning in a campfire's glow
Than we'd ever learn in a year or so.

Chorus

We've made a promise to always keep.
And the day is done before we sleep.
We'll be Girl Scouts together and when we're gone
We'll still be trying and singing this song.

Chorus





He's Got the Whole World in His Hands

He's got the whole world in His hands.
He's got the whole world in His hands.
He's got the whole world in His hands.
He's got the whole world in His hands.

* 2. He's got the wind and the rain in His hands.
* 3. He's got the tiny little baby in His hands.
4. He's got you and me sister in His hands.





God Our Father

(Tune: Are You Sleeping)

God Our Father
God Our Father,
Once again
Once again,
We would ask thy blessing
We would ask thy blessing;
Amen,
Amen.





Kum Ba Yah
(Come with Me)

Kum ba yah, my Lord, Kum ba yah.
Kum ba yah, my Lord, Kum ba yah.
Kum ba yah, my Lord, Kum ba yah.
Oh Lord, Kum ba yah.

* 2. someone's crying, Lord
* 3. someone's singing, Lord
* 4. someone's praying, Lord





Girl Scouts Together

(sung moderately slowly)

Girl Scouts together,
That is our song,
Winding the old trails
rocky and long.
Learning our motto,
living our creed,
Girl Scouts together
in ev'ry good deed.





The Brownie Smile Song

There's something in my pocket
That belongs across my face.
I keep it very close to me,
In a most convenient place.
I bet you'll never guess it
If you guess a long long while,
So I'll take it out and put it on.
It's a great big Brownie smile!





She Wears a "G"

She wears a G for generosity,
She wears an I for interest too,
She wears an R for real-life sportsmanship,
She wears an L for loyalty, for loyalty.
She wears an S for her sincerity,
She wears an C for courtesy, for courtesy.
She wears an O-U-T for outdoor life, outdoor life.
You can bet she's a real Girl Scout!





We Change The World

Words and Music by Melinda Caroll Chorus:

Change the world come with me
Time to let our dreams fly free
And it comes so easily, that is our way
Every moment we're alive
It's our love that will survive
In the Girls Scouts, together,
We change the world

Sisters of every color, friends from everywhere
We all make a difference, when we show the world we care.
The Girl Scouts are our family, and they show us what we can be
And I believe, together, we change the world.

Chorus

In America, we have so much to give
To our sisters around the world who are struggling just to live.
Light the light and do our share, reach out your hand and someone's there.
And I believe, together, we change the world.







Rose

Rose, Rose, Rose, Rose,
Will I ever see thee wed?
I will marry at thy will, sire,
At thy will.




Baby Bumble Bee

I'm bringing home a baby bumblebee,
Won't my mommy be so proud of me,
I'm bringing home a baby bumblebee,
Won't my mommy be so proud of me,
Ouch! It stung me!
(Shake hands as if just stung)

I'm squishing up the baby bumblebee,
Won't my mommy be so proud of me,
I'm squishing up the baby bumblebee,
Won't my mommy be so proud of me,
('Squish' bee between palms of hands)
Ooh! It's yucky!
(Open up hands to look at 'mess')

I'm wiping off the baby bumblebee,
Won't my mommy be so proud of me,
(Wipe hands off on shirt)
I'm wiping off the baby bumblebee,
Now my mommy won't be mad at me!
(Hold hands up to show they are clean)
