Crest of a wave

We’re riding along on a crest of a wave And the sun is in the sky. All our eyes on the distant horizon Look out for passers-by. We’ll do the hailing when the other people are out sailing We’re riding along on the crest of a wave And the world is ours.

All hands aboard boys, All hands aboard boys The ship is calling for more We’re getting ready now for a steady Pull away from the home shore. We’re off to find adventure anywhere And so we know now

THESE ARE THE TIMES WE SHALL DREAM ABOUT

THERE’S A SONG IN MY HEART.

Saw her lips above the water Blowing bubbles mighty fine But alas, I was no swimmer So I lost my Clementine

The Space Rocket

Rockets have become much more complicated nowadays and we will divide into a few groups, each demonstrating a vital part of a launch into space.

GROUP 1

The rocket must be fueled – up with liquid Hydrogen using a pump whose piston sounds like – “Fish” And at the end of a stroke a valve shuts- “Leake”

– so at one second intervals you shout: “Fish – leake”

GROUP 2

Computers are very simple machines No matter how complicated the problem, All they do is add one and one a vast Number of times, so you shout as fast as Possible to provide the system control: “One and one’s two”

GROUP 3

The rocket must be tracked to see where it goes. You are the Radar and you call As fast and high pitched as possible:“Beep, beep, beep”

GROUP 4

You are the control room and set everything Off by counting down at second intervals: “ 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 ,0 ,Lift off!.”

Group 4 begin: at “*” Group 1 join in. At “6” Group 2 come in. At “4” Group 3 come in. At “Lift off” everyone stops their routine and shouts “POP”

Ancient Britons

(Tune: Men of Harlech)

What’s the good of wearing braces Vest and pants and boots with laces Spats or hats you buy in paces Down in Brompton Road?

What’s the use of shirts of cotton Studs that always get forgotten? These affairs are simply rotten – Better far is Woad

Woad’s the stuff to show men Woad to scare your foeman Boil it to a brilliant hue And put it on your back and your abdomen

Ancient Britons never kit on Anything as good as Woad to fit on Neck and knees or where you sit on Tailors, you be blowed!

Romans came across the channel All wrapped up in tin and flannel Half a pint of Woad per mann’ll Does us more than these

Saxon, you can waste your stitches Building beds for bugs and breeches We have wood to clothe us which is Not a nest for fleas

Roman keep you armours; Saxon your pyjamas. Hairy coats were meant for goats Gorillas, Yaks Retriever dogs and Llamas Tramp up Snowdon with our Woad on Never mind if we get rained or snowed on, Never want a button sewed, Go it. Ancient B’s

I Met an Engine

(Tune Yankee, Doodle) I met an engine on a hill All hot and broken hearted And this is what he said to me As up the hill he started

I think I can, I think I can (Slowing down during this verse) At any note I’ll try it I think I can, I think I can, At any rate I’ll try it

He reached the top and looking back To where he stood and doubted He started on the downward track And this is what he shouted

I knew I could, I knew I could (Get faster and faster) I never should have doubted I knew I could, I knew I could I never should have doubted

My heart is sick for you Here in the lowlands I will return to you Hills of the north

Swift as a silver fish Canoe of birch bark Thy mighty waters Carry me forth

The Scout Hymm

Now as I start upon my chosen way In all I do, my thoughts, my work, my play. Grant as I promise, courage, Lord for me, To be the best, the best that I can be.

Help me to keep my honour shining bright May I be Loyal in the hardest fight Let me be able for my Task, and then To earn a place among my fellow men.

Open mine eyes to see things as I should That I may do my dairy turn of good Let me be ready, waiting for each need To keep me clean in thought and word and deed

So as I journey on my chosen way In all I do, my thought, my work, my play Grant as I promise, Courage new for me To be the best, the BEST that I can be.

There’s a Song In My Heart

Verse

Everywhere I went I used to grumble, I used to complain whenever the rain came down Everywhere I went I used to stumble til somebody picked me up and brought me round. Now I never worry on the journey For my world’s a melody

Chorus

There’s a song in my heart, oh listen to the best of it. Right from the start you can’t believe the treat of it. I’ve got a rainbow shining on my way There’s a song in my heart, a chorus of tuny verse. I’ll learn my part and sing it to the universe. I’ll make each day a wonderful day. For the love and the joy of living For everything that’s underneath the sun. For the stars and April showers. And for life that’s just begun. I was right in the cart, it happened like a miracle – Awoke with a start and found that I was lyrical. Oh let me sing that song in my heart.

Verse

Everybody seems to like a Sunday Does it enhance any romance around? Yet they feel their worst on Monday When back to the mouldy office they are bound. You can overcome this deep depression Join the merry band who sing –

Chorus

There’s a song in my heart …………………etc
