Giddy-up-go (answer)

There's a time to laugh and a time to cry
A time to forgive and a time to forget
Dreams we dream sometimes never die
We carry them on till they become someone else's dream
A friend of mine had such a dream
I met her at a truck stop just outside Phoenix
We both worked there
Her dream came true, I know it
The key to her dream was a little sign that reads
Giddy-up-go
She's a lovely girl, pretty smile
But behind all this I could see a troubled mind
She told me o' when she met the guy that won her heart
And made her life a joy
And before too long more happiness came, a little baby boy
Things wasn't to bad
The job wasn't much
But somehow they got by
And then came the day when he drove home a big truck
And the little boy became so overjoyed
Just like when he saw his first falling snow
He kept shoutin' Giddy-up-go Daddy, Giddy-up-go
Then a dark cloud moved in
A few years later
Not long, after a few visits to the doctor
She said it was just a matter of time
She knew she would have to move to a warmer climate
And this troubled he mind
So without leaving a trace
She took her son, and left town one night!
She settled here
And we became the closest of friends
We talked from time to time and she'd smile
And her eyes would glow
When she talked about Giddy-up-go
Each time a truck would pull in
I could see her stare, and stare
Wasn't long before she had to give up being a waitress here
And she moved on out of town. Not too far
We visited almost every week
The boy had almost grown
He's the spittin' image of his dad, she'd say
The most handsome man I've ever known
Without cab once more, moved away
As I stood close by, once again, she told her story
I could see a tear in her eye
I know my son longs for the road
'N the last request he had: Let him be a truck driver
Like son, like dad
The boy soon left town, I never knew for where
But I find myself watching every truck that pulls around the curve
And Giddy-up-go was the only name that held between the two
And I was hopin' that I could be of help
It became a dream for me too
Just now I froze in my tracks, as I watched two trucks pull in
A big new shiny diesel, and an old one
Wow. I couldn't help starin' as they walked in
Ordered coffee and talked a while
Then I saw them leave, both wearin' such a smile
They walked out to the old truck
And brushed off some dirt
So the name plate would show
And before my eyes, a little sign that read
Giddy-up-go

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


Glory, Glory, How Peculiar

(Battle Hymn of the Republic)

As one woodpecker pecked up the peg, the other woodpecker pecked down
As one woodpecker pecked up the peg, the other woodpecker pecked down
As one woodpecker pecked up the peg, the other woodpecker pecked down
As one woodpecker pecked up the peg, the other woodpecker pecked down

Glory, glory, how peculiar
Glory, glory, how peculiar
Glory, glory, how peculiar
As one woodpecker pecked up the peg, the other woodpecker pecked down

As one sly snake slipped up the slide, other sly snake slipped down

As one blue bat blew in the bowl, other blue bat blew out

As one black bug bled blue black blood, the other black bug bled blue

As one drunk duck dove into the ditch, the other drunk duck dropped dead

As one flea fly flew up the flue, the other flea fly flew down

As one pink porpoise popped into the pool, other pink porpoise popped out

As one brown bear backed up the bank, other brown bear backed down

As one white whale whipped over the waves, other white whale whipped under


God Bless My Underwear

(God Bless America)

God bless my underwear, my only pair
Stand beside them, and guide them
Through the rips, through the holes, through the tears
From the washer, to the dryer, to the clothesline in the air
God bless my underwear, my only pair


God is Great, God is Good

(Michael Row the Boat)

God is great, God is good, Alleluia
Let us thank him for our food, Alleluia

Thank you Lord, for daily bread, Alleluia


God Our Father

(Frere Jacques)

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


Going Camping

(Bubbles)

We're forever going camping
Camping the whole year round
We reach the site, middle of the night
And then we find we've got no light
Sleeping all together, on the stony ground
We're forever going camping
Going camping all year round


Going Down The Valley

We are going down the valley, going down the valley
Going down the valley one by one, one by one
We are going down the valley, going down the valley
Going to the setting of the sun
We are coming up the valley, coming up the valley
Coming up the valley one by one, one by one
We are coming up the valley, coming up the valley
Coming to the rising of the sun

Repeat the first verse several times getting quieter each time as you get further down the valley. Then switch to the second verse and get louder on each repeat


Goodbye Horse

Goodbye horse, goodbye horse
He was saying goodbye to his horse
And as he was saying goodbye to his horse
He was saying goodbye to his horse

Repeat for as long as you can stand it....


Goodnight Ladies/Cub Scouts

Goodnight ladies, goodnight ladies, goodnight ladies
We're sorry to leave you now
Merrily we roll along, roll along, roll along
Marrily we roll along, across the deep blue see

Goodnight campers, goodnight campers
Goodnight campers, it's time to say goodnight
Sadly it is time to part, time to part, time to part
Sadly it is time to part, and to day goodnight

Good night . . . Scouts, good night . . . Scouts
Good night . . . Scouts, we're going to leave you now.
Merrily we Scout along, scout along, scout along.
Merrily we Scout along, on the Scouting trail.
Farewell, . . . Scouts . . . .
Sweet dreams, . . . Scouts . . . .


Goodnight Song

Evening sunset paints the sky
Smoke from campfire drifts on high
Songs and stories we like best
Just before we go to rest
Goodnight to every Cub Scout, say goodnight
To those away and these here in our sight
The fun we've had we will not soon forget
The things we've learned and the pals we've met
And so, goodnight to every Cub Scout, say goodnight
Above may each boy's star send forth its light
While songs and stories shared now wing their flight
Goodnight, sweet dreams, goodnight!


Gopher Girls

Make buck teeth (gopher teeth) sticking out over lower lip while singing:

We are the gopher girls
We go for gopher guys
They don't gofer us
We wonder why!


Gopher Guts

(The Old Gray Mare)

Great green gobs of greasy grimy gopher guts
mutilated monkey meat
dirty little pigeon's feet
All mixed up with a pile of poison possum pus
and me without my spoon
And me without my spoon
and me without spoon
Great green gobs of greasy grimy gopher guts
and me without my spoon
We'll use a straw!


Go Well and Safely

Go well and safely
Go well and safely
Go well and safely
The Lord be ever with you

Stay well and safely
Stay well and safely
Stay well and safely
The Lord be ever with you


Grandfather's Clock


My grandfather's clock was too large for the shelf
So it stood ninety years on the floor
It was taller by half than the old man himself
Though it weighed not a pennyweight more
It was bought on the morn of the day that he was born
And was always his treasure and pride
But it stopped, short, never to go again
When the old man died

Ninety years without slumbering, tick, tock, tick, tock
His life seconds numbering, tick, tock, tick, tock
It stopped, short, never to go again, when the old man died

In watching its pendulum swing to and fro
Many hours had he spent as a boy
And in childhood and manhood the clock seemed to know
And to share both his grief and his joy
For it struck twenty-four when he entered at the door
With a blooming and beautiful bride
But it stopped, short, never to go again
When the old man died

My grandfather said that of those he could hire
Not a servant so faithful he found
For it wasted no time, and had but one desire
At the close of each week to be wound
And it kept in its place, not a frown upon its face
And its hands never hung by its side
But it stopped, short, never to go again
When the old man died

It rang in alarm in the dead of the night
An alarm that for years had been dumb
And we knew that his spirit was plumbing its flight
That his hour of departure had come
Still the clock kept the time, with a soft and muffled chime
As we silently stood by his side
But it stopped, short, never to go again
When the old man died


Green Grass (There was a Hole)


There was a hole
The prettiest little hole that you ever did see

And the green grass grew all around, all around
And the green grass grew all around

And in that hole
There was a tree
The prettiest little tree that you ever did see
And the tree was in the hole
And the hole was in the ground

Continue adding one line at a time....
Now on that tree... There was a branch... the prettiest little
etc...
...limb on the tree
...nest on the limb
...egg in the nest
...bird in the egg
...wing on the bird
...feather on the wing
...bacteria on the feather


Green Grow the Rushes O


I'll sing you one o
Green grow the rushes o
What is your one o
One is one and all alone
And ever more shall be so

I'll sing you two o
Green grow the rushes o
What is your two o
Two, two the lily white boys
Clothed all in green o o
One is one and all alone
And ever more shall be so

Three, three the rivals
Four for the Gospel makers
Five for the symbols at your door
Six for the six brown walkers
Seven for the seven stars in the sky
Eight for the April rainers
Nine for the nine bright shiners
Ten for the Ten Commandments
Eleven for the eleven that went to heaven
Twelve for the twelve apostles


Greenland Fisheries


'Twas in eighteen hundred and fifty three
On June the thirteenth day
That our gallant ship her anchor weighed
And for Greenland bore away, brave boys
And for Greenland bore away

The lookout in the crosstrees stood
With a spyglass in his hand
"There's a whale, there's a whale, there's a whalefish" he cried
And she blows at every span, brave boys
And she blows at every span

The captain stood on the quarter-deck
And a fine little man was he
"Overhaul! Overhaul! let your davit-tackles fall
And launch your boats for the sea, brave boys
And launch your boats for the sea"

Now the boats were launched and the men aboard
And the whale was full in view
Resolv-ed was each seaman bold
To steer where the whalefish blew, brave boys
To steer where the whalefish blew

We struck the whale, and the line paid out
But she gave such a flourish with her tail
That the boat capsized and four men were lost
And we never caught that whale, brave boys
And we never caught that whale

"To lose that whale" our captain said
"It grieves my heart full sore
But to lose four of our gallant sailor boys
It grieves me ten times more, brave boys
It grieves me ten times more"

"The winter star doth now appear
So, boys, we'll anchor weigh
It's time to leave this cold country
And homeward bear away, brave boys
And homeward bear away"

Oh, Greenland is a dreadful place
A land that's never green
Where there's ice and snow, and the whalefishes blow
And the daylight's seldom seen, brave boys
And the daylight's seldom seen


Green Trees Around You


Green trees around you, blue skies above
Friends all about you in a world filled with love
Taps sounding softly, hearts beating true
As Girl Scouts sing Good Night to you
(Then you sing Taps)
