Camp Fire Songs

Oh Your'll Never go to heaven

This song is a chant and repeat song!, Here are some of my favourite verses

Oh You'll never go to heaven
Oh You'll never go to heaven
On a sheet of glass
On a sheet of glass
'Cause a sheet of glass
'Cause a sheet of glass
will cut your LEG!
will cut your LEG!
Oh you'll never go to heaven on a sheet of glass
'Cause a sheet of glass will cut your leg

I ain't gonna grieve my Lord no more
I ain't gonna grieve my Lord,
I ain't gonna grieve my Lord,
I ain't gonna grieve,
My Lord no more

You'll never go to heaven in a bottle of gin
'Cos the Lord don't let no spirits in

You'll never go to heaven in a violin
'Cos the Lord don't let no fidlers in

You'll never go to heaven in Akela's Car
'Cos Akela's Car won't get that far.

You'll never go to heaven in Akela's Bra
'Cos Akela's Bra won't stretch that far.

You'll never go to heaven on Akela's Knee
'Cos Akela's Knee's too knobbly

You'll never go to heaven in a biscuit tin
'Cos a biscuit tin's got biscuits in.

You'll never go to heaven in a limosine
'Cos the Lord ain't got no gasoline.

You'll never go to heaven in the QE2
'Cos the QE2 ain't got no loo.

You'll never go to heaven in a baked bean tin
'Cos a baked bean tin, 's got baked beans in .

You'll never go to heaven in a jumbo jet
'Cos the Lord ain't got, no runways yet.

You'll never go to heaven with a fat Girl Guide
'Cos the pearly gates, just ain't that wide.
If I get to heaven, before you do
I'll dig a hole, and spit on you.

If you get to heaven, before I do
Just dig a hole, and pull me through.

Campfire's Burning
Campfire's burning, campfire's burning,
Draw nearer, draw nearer,
In the gloaming, in the gloaming,
Come sing and be merry.

This song can also be sung as a round

Everywhere we go
(leader sings one line, group repeats)

Everywhere we go (Everywhere we go.....)
People always ask us (People always ask us ....etc.)
Who we are ....
And where we come from....
So we tell them ....
We're from Reigate
Mighty, mighty Reigate
And if they can't hear us .....
We sing a little louder.....

(Repeat, gradually get louder and move up in volume at each repeat)

until - VERY loudly.....

Everywhere we go....
People always ask us....
Who we are ....
And where we come from ....
So we tell them ....
We're from Ware Reigate
Mighty, mighty Reigate
And if they can't hear us....
They must be DEAF!!!!

Little Bunny Foo-Foo

Little Bunny Foo-Foo
hopping through the undergrowth,
picked up a field mouse and smacked it round the head
and along came the GOOD FAIRY,
and she said
"Little Bunny Foo-Foo,
I don't like your attitude,
Picking up a field mouse and smacking it round the head!
I'll give you 3 more chances,
otherwise I'll turn you into a GOON!"
...
And she turned him into a GOON!

And the moral of this story is

HARE today GOON tomorrow!!!!!

No Flies on Me
Split into two groups and shout this backwards and forwards between the two

Group 1:
There ain't no files on me!
There ain't no flies on me!
There might be flies on some of you guys
but there ain't no files on me

Group 2:
There ain't no files on me!
There ain't no flies on me!
There might be flies on some of you guys
but there ain't no files on me

On top of Spagetti
On top of spaghetti
All covered in cheese
I lost my poor meatball
When somebody sneezed

It rolled off the table
And onto the floor
And then my poor meatball
It rolled out the door

It rolled down the garden
And under a bush
And then my poor meatball
Was nothing but mush

(moral)

If you have spaghetti
All covered in cheese
Hold onto your meatball
Cos someone might sneeze.


Picture a Cowboy
Picture a cowboy, all dressed in red
Riding on his horse when he fell upon his head
There was blood on the saddle
Blood on the ground
And great big blobs of blood all around

Next verse the same as the first
but a little bit louder and a little bit worse

Singin' In The Rain
We're singing in the rain, just singing in the rain.
What a glorious feeling, we're happy again.
Hang About! (Hang About!)
Arms Out! (Arms Out!)
A-root-ta-ta, root-ta-ta. root-ta-ta-TA

Add each of the following, in turn:
Arms Out

Knees Bent
Knees together
Toes together
Bum out
Chest out
Head Back
Tongue out

There were eggs, eggs, eggs with hairy legs,
In the stores,
In the stores,
There were eggs, eggs, eggs with hairy legs,
In the Quartermaster's stores. (Behind the Door)
