Hail, Hail, the Gang's All Here

Hail, hail, the gang's all here
Never mind the weather, here we are together
Hail, hail, the gang's all here
Sure we're glad that you're here, too!
Hail, hail, the gang's all here
We're a bunch of live ones, not a single dead one
Hail, hail, the gang's all here
Sure I'm glad that I'm here, too!


Ham and Eggs

Ham and eggs, ham and eggs
I like mine fried nice and brown
I like mine fried up and down
Ham and eggs, ham and eggs
Flip 'em, flop 'em, flop 'em, flip 'em; ham and eggs!

Variation:
Divide group in two and alternatively sing phases between the punctuation.
All sing the last "ham and eggs"


Happy Days Are Here Again

Happy days are here again!
The skies above are clear again
Let us sing a song of cheer again
Happy days are here again
Altogether shout it now
There's no one who can doubt it now
So let's tell the world about it now
Happy days are here again
Your cares and troubles are gone
There'll be no more from now on
Happy days are here again!
The skies above are clear again
Let us sing a song of cheer again
Happy days are here again


Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes

Head and shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes
Head and shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes
And Eye and ears, and a mouth and a nose
Head and shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes

(Touch the appropriate body part each time it's mentioned.
Second time: don't say the word 'head' aloud, but still touch it.
Each verse thereafter, add another body part that you touch but don't mention aloud)


Health and Strength

For health and strength and daily bread
We praise thy name, Oh Lord.


Heart Of My Heart

Heart of my heart, how I love that melody
Heart of my heart, brings back fond memories
When we were kids on the corner of the square
We were rough and ready guys
But oh, how we could harmonize
Heart of my heart, how our friends were dearer then
Too bad we had to part
I know a tear would glisted, If once more I could listen
To the gang that sang heart of my heart

Heidi-hey Heidi-ho!
Iddly-Widdly Woddley Wo
If you heard what I just said
Get on your knees and bow your head


He Jumped Without a Parachute

(John Browns Body)

He jumped without a paracute from twenty thousand feet

And he aint gonna jump no more

She put him on the table when the Vicar came to tea
She put him on the table when the Vicar came to tea

And he aint gonna jump no more

Hey Lollee

This song is meant to be made up by the singers as you go along. But if you decide to play it this way, you might want to sing a chorus between each verse to let the next person think up some lines.

Hey Lollee, lollee
Hey Lollee, lollee, lo
Hey Lollee, lollee
Hey Lollee, lollee, lo

This is a crazy kind of song
Hey Lollee, lollee, lo
You make it up as you go along
Hey Lollee, lollee, lo

When calypso singers sing this song
Hey Lollee, lollee, lo
It sometimes lasts the whole day long
Hey Lollee, lollee, lo

First you invent a simple rhyme
Hey Lollee, lollee, lo
Then another one to rhyme
Hey Lollee, lollee, lo

While you catch on I'll sing a verse
Hey Lollee, lollee, lo
Then you do one that's even worse
Hey Lollee, lollee, lo

I know a girl named Emily (or use another name that rhymes)
Hey Lollee, lollee, lo
She sings "Hey Lollee" in just one key
Hey Lollee, lollee, lo

Tonight we've chosen another key
Hey Lollee, lollee, lo
You won't be hearing from Emily
Hey Lollee, lollee, lo

She sings "Hey Lollee" day and night
Hey Lollee, lollee, lo
It never seems to come out right
Hey Lollee, lollee, lo

I know a man name Mr. Jones
Hey Lollee, lollee, lo
When he sings, everybody groans
Hey Lollee, lollee, lo

The singer you fast the getter it's tuff
Hey Lollee , lollee, lo
To line up makes that you won't muff
Hey Lollee, lollee, lo

Let's put this song back on the shelf
Hey Lollee, lollee, lo
if you want anymore you can sing it yourself
Hey Lollee, lollee, lo


Hole In My Bucket

There's a hole in my bucket

There's a hole in my bucket
dear Liza, a hole

Well fix it, dear Henry
dear Henry, dear Henry
Well fix it, dear Henry, well fix it

With what shall fix it . . .
With straw . . .
The straw is too long . . .
Well cut it . . .
With what shall I cut it . . .
With an axe . . .
The axe is too dull . . .
Then sharpen it, . . .
With what shall I sharpen it . . .
With a stone . . . .
The stone is too dry . . .
Then wet it . . .
With what shall I wet it . . .
With water . . . .
In what shall I fetch it . . .

Home on the Range

Oh give me a home where the buffalo roam
Where the deer and the antelope play
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word
And the skies are not cloudy all day

Home, home on the range, where the deer and the antelope play
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word
And the skies are not cloudy all day

Where the air is so pure, and the zephyrs so free
The breezes so balmy and light
That i would not exchange my home on the range
For all of the cities so bright



Honk, Honk, Rattle, Rattle

It's made of wood, it's made of tin
Nobody knows what shape it's in.

It's a For Oh it's a Ford

Honk, Honk, rattle, rattle, rattle Crash, peep, peep!
Honk, Honk, rattle, rattle, rattle Crash, peep, peep!

Hot Time In the Old Town Tonight

Late last night when we were all in bed,
Mrs. O'Leary left her lantern in the shed.
Well, the cow kicked it over, and this is what they said:
"There'll be a hot time in the old town tonight!"

When you hear those bells go ding-a-ling,
All join 'round and sweetly you must sing.
And when the verse is through, in the chorus all join in:
"There'll be a hot time in the old town tonight!"
(For dramatic effect, shout out "FIRE, FIRE, FIRE" at the end of the first verse)


Hot Time In the Old Town Tonight - (Silly variant)

Ten nights dark when bed we all were in
Old Leary lady hung the shed her lantern in
And when the kick cowed it over, she eyed her wink and said
"There'll be town hot in the time old tonight!"


How Dry I Am (1)

How dry I am, How wet I'll be
If I don't find the bathroom key
I found the key, I found the door
But it's too late, It's on the floor


How Dry I Am (2)

How dry I am, How wet I'd be
If I could find the bathroom key
I found the key, I found the door
...Hiccup... I'm dry no more


How Much Is That Doggie in the Window?

How much is that doggie in the window?
The one with the waggly tail
How much is that doggie in the window?
I do hope that doggie's for sale

I must take a trip to California
And leave my poor sweetheart alone
If he has a dog, he won't be lonesome
And the doggie will have a good home

I read in the papers there are robbers
With flashlights that shine in the dark
My love needs a doggie to protect him
And scare them away with one bark

I don't want a bunny or a kitty
I don't want a parrot that talks
I don't want a bowl of little fishies
He can't take a goldfish for walks


Hymn of Scouting

(The Church's One Foundation)

Oh Father we would bring Thee a Scoutship strong and true
A life of loving service and struggle well won through
A Scoutship that our Founder would surely love to see
Of utter self-surrender and spotless purity
Oh knit us all together as loyal friends of all
And make us every ready to help up those who fall
As Scouts we must be trusted to others to do good
God bless and keep and strengthen the Scouting brother[/sister]hood
So as we stand before Thee we give our promise true
That we will on our honor love God and country too
We'll help all others daily in all we say and do
And live the laws of Scouting as Thou woulds't have us do
And so Thee our Captain, as loyal Scouts we come
And ask that Thou will leads us 'til Scouting days are done
We face tomorrow's struggles strong in Thy strength alone
Look down and bless our Scoutship, for we would be Thine own
