The Gilwell Song, Spring 2007

Recommended Posts

The old threads are deep in the archives, so...

 

Is anyone up for a round of the Gilwell Song?

 

Here's a Cut and Paste, insert your critter ...

 

I used to be a CRITTER, and a Good Old Critter too,

But now I've finished CRITTERING and I don't know what to do.

I'm growing old and feeble, and I can CRITTER no more!

So I'm going to work my ticket if I can!

 

Back to Gilwell, Happy Land,

I'm going to work my ticket if I can!

 

Ground Rules are simple: Wood Badge Order, Please.

If a CRITTER doesn't step up in 24 hours, you may emulate that critter with "Somewhere there's a CRITTER" instead of "I used to be a CRITTER"

 

So, it's time for the inevitable question:

 

IS THERE A BEAVER IN THE HOUSE?(This message has been edited by John-in-KC)

I used to be a Beaver, and a Good Old Beaver too,

But now I've finished Beavering and I don't know what to do.

So I'm going to work my ticket if I can!

Well, as a FOX, I know I need to wait for the Bobwhites and the Eagles.

 

This thread sure didn't move much from Friday.

Somewhere there are some BOBWHITES, and Good Old BOBWHITES too,

But now they've finished BOBWHITING and they doesn't know what to do.

They're growing old and feeble, and they can BOBWHITE no more!

So they're going to work their ticket if they can!

Okay, now that John-in-KC acted in behalf of all the beloved Bobwhites, I'll continue in Gilwell order and sing for us Eagles (even though Huntr already did - I think he was just overly excited after finishing his ticket the day before)
