All Girl Scouts
I don’t know, but I’ve been told: All Girl Scouts are good as gold! I am one, and say it’s true, Scouting’s great for me and you! Chorus: Sound off: 1- 2! Sound off: 3 - 4! Bring it on down, now: 1- 2 - 3 - 4! 1 - 2! 3 - 4! Daisy has a disc of blue, They are Scouts that are brand new. They are cute and they are sweet Daisy Scouts are fun to meet. Chorus Brownies have a disc of green They are second on the scene. They wear a uniform that’s brown, Their smile song can erase a frown. Chorus Junior level is the next, A yellow disk is on their vest. They say that camping is big fun, They earn badges one by one. Chorus Cadettes are teens that care a lot, Their service projects hit the spot. A white disc is the one they wear The name Girl Scout they’re proud to share. Chorus
Senior discs are red, I know. They are Girl Scouts on the go. With Wider Opportunities, Some Girl Scouts go overseas. Chorus Leaders have no disc at all They come all sizes, big and small. They share their time and talents too. They make Girl Scouting great for you.

Brownie Smile Song
I have something in my pocket That belongs across my face. I keep it very close to me, In a most convenient place. I bet you’ll never guess it If you guess a long long while, So I’ll take it out and put it on. It’s a great big Brownie smile!
Tune: On My Honor Whatever happened to Daisy’s pearls? They were sold one day for Daisy’s girls. And since that day they can be found A glowin’ from Girl Scouts the world around. The price she paid was a string of pearls To keep us going - we are Daisy’s girls. There are millions of pearls cast around the earth And a bushel of diamonds can’t match their worth. And which of us have some of her pearls? And which of us give for Daisy’s girls? And who among us share that glow? Every Girl Scout leader the world shall know. We are Girl Scout leaders, we carry those pearls. We are Girl Scout leaders, some of Daisy’s girls. And we’ll cherish her gesture and cherish her pearls And pass them on to more of her girls.

G for Generosity: Original Version
She She She She wears wears wears wears a G for Generosity an I for Interest, too an R for Responsibility an L for loyalty, for loyalty
The tents they give you, they say are mighty ﬁne, But when you set them up, they fall down every time! The water that they give you, they say is mighty ﬁne, But when you sip upon it, it tastes like turpentine! The co-leaders that they give you, they say are mighty ﬁne, But when the weekend’s over, you’re glad they’re left behind! The ﬁrst-aiders that they give you, they say are mighty ﬁne, But when you break a ﬁnger, they break the other nine! The food that they give you, they say is mighty ﬁne, But then it crawls up to you, and send chills up your spine! They got us out of bed, to take a ﬁve-mile hike, My feet are really hurting, I wish I had my bike.

Chorus: Oh, I don’t wanna go to Girl Scout Camp Gee Ma, I wanna go, but they won’t let me go, Oh Ma, I wanna go home. Girl Scout Camp, Girl Scout Camp The toilets that they give you, they say are mighty ﬁne, But when you sit upon them, a bug ﬂies up your hind! The donuts that they give you, they say are mighty ﬁne, But one rolled off the table, and killed a friend of mine! The biscuits that they serve you, they say are mighty ﬁne, But one fell off the table, and hurt a friend of mine! The drivers that they give you, they say are mighty ﬁne, But when they turn around, they look like Frankenstein! The Leaders they give you, they say are mighty ﬁne, But when you a question, they say, “Get back in line!”

Ode to the Leaders
Karen Glassman Tune: Battle Hymn of the Republic I was glad to have a girl, since the day our child was born. I thought of all the ruffles--all the frilly bows and fun. I thought of how we’d sit and talk at night when day was done. Wasn’t I the foolish one. She was only half past seven when they called me to the fore. I said, “I’m not equipped.” They said, “Oh yes, you are, what’s more. We will train you in the basic, we’ll outﬁt you for the corps.” And they shoved me out the door. Glory, glory, I’m a leader! How’d I get to be a leader? All I did was have a daughter, is this the price I pay....? They taught me to be thrifty, to be thoughtful, to be true. They taught me how to string beads, like the Native Americans do. I had to learn to dig a trench, and how to use it too. And you should taste the stew! I had to learn to sing songs that I didn’t understand. I learned to dance the polka, and to make a rhythm band. To think of what to do, and to forget what I had planned. And they say Girl Scouting’s grand! Glory, glory, I’m a leader! Me, they had to make a leader. I can’t even build a ﬁre, let alone put up a tent. We went walking in the woodlands, my Girl Scout troop and me. The handbook says that nature has a wealth of sights to see. It’s true — we sure were sights when we were found eventually — And I do all this for free!
I’m not meant to be a leader, I don’t know which bird is which. My wiener forks all burned up, we come home from hikes and itch. The sit upons all fall apart, I showed them the wrong stitch. But no one wants to switch. Glory, glory, I’m a leader! Hallelujah, I’m a leader. Tell me why I should be happy, when no one envies me. But even though I grumble, and I mumble and I shout Though there are days I wonder, what’s the best way to get out. I guess when all is said and done, there isn’t any doubt. I’m glad to be a Scout! Glory, glory, I’m a leader! Someone’s got to be a leader. They can carve it on my tombstone, “Here’s a gal who did her best.”
On My Honor
Cindy Dasch Chorus: On my honor, I will try. There’s a duty to be done and I say aye; There’s a reason here for a reason above; My honor is to try and my duty is to love. People don’t need to know my name. If I do any harm then I’m to blame. When I help another—I help me, If I’ve opened up my eyes to see. I’ve tucked away a song or two. If you’re feeling low, there’s one for you. When you need a friend, then I will come; There are many more where I come from. Chorus Come with me where a ﬁre burns bright. We can see even better by a candle’s light, But we ﬁnd more meaning in a campﬁre’s glow, Than we’d ever learn in a year or so. Friendship is the strangest thing, If you keep it to yourself no reward will it bring. If you give it away and you give it to me, From now on great friends we’ll be. We’ve made a promise to always keep, And the day is done before we sleep. We’ll be Girl Scouts together, and when we’re gone, We’ll still be trying and singing this song Chorus
Once a Girl Scout Went to Camp
Tune: Head and Shoulders, Knees and Toes Once a Girl Scout went to camp, went to camp Went to camp without her lamp, without her lamp And when she saw a spider in her bed, This is what the Girl Scout said, Girl Scout said: “Spider, spider, go away, go away, You are not allowed to stay, allowed to stay This is what my leader said, ‘No two bodies in one bed, in one bed.’” Once a Boy Scout went to camp, went to camp Went to camp without his lamp, without his lamp And there he saw a spider in his bed, in his bed This is what the Boy Scout said, Boy Scout said: “Aaaaaauuughhhhhh!”
Tune: Oh, Tannenbaum Softly falls the light of day, While our campﬁres fade away. Silently each Scout should ask: Have I done my daily task? Have I kept my honor bright? Can I guiltless sleep tonight? Have I done and have I dared, Everything to be prepared?
Tune: Oh, Tannenbaum Softly falls the rain today As our campsite ﬂoats away Silently, each Scout should ask Did I bring my SCUBA mask? Have I tied my tent ﬂaps down? Learned to swim so I won’t drown, Have I done, and will I try Everything to keep me dry?
This Girl Scouting Light of Mine
Tune: This Little Light of Mine This Girl Scouting light of mine, I’m going to let it shine (repeat 3 times) Let it shine, all the time, let it shine. Hide it under a bush, oh no. I’m going to let it shine (repeat 3 times) Let it shine, all the time, let it shine. Don’t you (blow) my little light out. I’m going to let it shine (repeat 3 times) Let it shine, all the time, let it shine.
We are Brownies
Tune: Brother John We are Brownies, we are Brownies, In a ring, in a ring. We are Girl Scout Brownies, we are Girl Scout Brownies Hear us sing, hear us sing. We discover, we discover Things to do, things to do. We are ready helpers, we are ready helpers. How about you, how about you? (point)
