Beavah

Its time for a round of Gilwell

Recommended Posts

 

"If you don't have a beaver leading, the rest of the critters just wander around aimlessly"

 

Yah, ain't that da truth. :)

 

End of a great summer, lots of time and adventures in da field, 100th Anniversary. More things draw us together than pull us apart, especially our love of kids, the outdoors, and Scouting.

 

Let's hear from everybody loudly and with gusto, if not with tune. :)

 

I used to be a Beavah

and a good ol' Beaver too,

Now I'm finished Beavering

I don't know what to do.

I'm growing old and feeble

And I can Beaver 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.

With gusto Beavah ... being in tune is always optional!

 

 

I used to be a Beaver ('83),

and a good ol' Staffer too ('84),

But I'll always be an Eagle ('72).(This message has been edited by UCEagle72)

ah yes...just what is needed after 14 hours of day one of WE3-23-10! Although, I must say that BEARS are particularly good leaders!

One of my pet peeves ... People don't know the words to the song. None right so far.

Bobwhites, it's your try.

If you're going to sing it, especially if you're a staffer modeling for others, do it right.

Ohhhhh....

 

I never was a Beaver

I never was an Owl

I never was a Bobwhite

I never was a Cow

 

I may be getting older

I may be getting fatter

I may be getting balder

I sure ain't getting feeble

 

I never had a ticket

Don't need no stinkin' ticket

To give me an excuse

To do the things I love

 

I've never been to Gilwell

I hear it's rather flat

I'd rather climb a mountain

The lads know where it's at

 

Canoeing, hiking, camping

and even some backpacking

I'm going to play outdoors

While I still can

 

Back to wilderness, happy land

I'm going to play outdoors

While I still can

Right now I'm a Scouter,

a good old Scouter too.

But since my troop is boy lead

there's nothing much to do.

I'm restless and perplexed,

there must be something more

So I'm going to train at Gilwell when I can

 

Going to Gilwell, I'm a happy man

I going to be a critter when I can

Well, since you've only sung the song a dozen times so far, there's time to fix things before your course is over. You don't need to believe me, so look it up, print it, and share it with whomever is teaching you the wrong words. It's always the same two phrases. Plenty of ways to sing it wrong; one way to sing it right, and you may as well do that now.

 

I used to be a Bear

AND A good old Bear too,

BUT NOW I'VE finished Bearing ....

 

Everybody seems to get the rest of the song just fine, but this is so often learned uncorrectly, and then sung that way for the rest of your life, including as a staffer. May as well get it right from the start.

Good luck with it. No sense in doing it wrong when you can do it right. Be sure to look it up. You'll need to print it, because nobody will believe you.
