CAT SCOUTS SONGBOOK

WORLDWIDE WILDCATS ANTHEM

SONG BY BOBCAT MAURICIO

Troop: WORLDWIDE WILDCATS

Copyright: November 2013

 

I like to go camping

Winter, spring, summer and fall.

I gather all my Cat Scout buddies,

And we have ourselves a ball.

 

We go hiking and fishing and swimming

And are always careful that no one goes missing.

We cook s’mores and tell ghost stories

Or share in our friends’ merit badge glories.

 

Refrain

Cat Scouts is the only life, the only life for me

So please join me at Campfire for a cup of nip tea

Where we are comrades, buddies, friends and pals

Whether we are Cat Scout guys or gals.

 

Cat Scouts is the happening place to be.

Cat Scouts is fun for Sammy, Raz, Sushi and Allie.

And troop Worldwide Wildcats is just the best.

We love putting our skills and talents to the test.

 

We’ve earned badges in mammal study, basketry and art

And celebrated our accomplishments together or apart.

It is one for all and all for one

In a troop where we know the fun has just begun.

 

Refrain

Cat Scouts is the only life, the only life for me

So please join me at Campfire for a cup of nip tea

Where we are comrades, buddies, friends and pals

Whether we are Cat Scout guys or gals.

 

Many of us have the Bobcat patch on our chest

And are working hard to make our troop the best.

We are proud to be members of the Cat Scout organization

And look forward to continuing our scouting education.

 

So please come join us everyone.

We know that you’ll have oodles of fun

While learning the ancient and honored Cat Scout way

And having loads of fun each and every day.

 

Refrain


Cat Scouts is the only life, the only life for me

So please join me at Campfire for a cup of nip tea

Where we are comrades, buddies, friends and pals

Whether we are Cat Scout guys or gals.

SO GLAD TO BE A CAT SCOUT

SONG BY BOBCAT SUSHI

Troop: WORLDWIDE WILDCATS

(Sung to the tune of “Angel on My Shoulder”)

 

I’m so glad to be a Cat Scout

I’m so happy to be free

There are noms and story telling

There’s no other place to be

 

I have such amazing furriends

At the campfire we all gather

We learn a lot from being a Cat Scout

That we’ll treasure til the end.

 

(*)

While we brought a lot of treats at the campfire site

We’ll come up with great stories that would scare us much

We’ll hide under the blankies coz we’re scaredy cats

We’ll share a lot of fearful experiences.

 

(**)

I’m so glad to be a Cat Scout

I’m so proud to be a Bobcat (or Tenderpaw)

I’m here to help my fellow Cat Scouts

To be the best that they could be now and

The best they could be til the end.

 

Repeat (*)

Repeat (**)

 

The best they could be til the end… (4x)

But they tell me, Cat Scouts like to party?

Yippie yi yo

You put a Bobcat and Tenderpaw behind

I heard Hooligan shout out

SONG BY BOBCAT WALLY

Troop: WORLDWIDE WILDCATS

(Sung to the tune of “I’ve Been Working on the Railrod”)

 

We love being Cat Scouts

All the livelong day

We love being Cat Scouts

What more can we say?

Making furiends and earning badges

Just some of the fun things we do

We love being Cat Scouts

Join us, please, won’t you?

 

We’ve been working on merit badges

All the livelong day

We’ve been working on merit badges

Though working seems like play

Hiking, nomming and gardening,

Climbing and driving in cars

We’ve been working on merit badges

And we all will be stars!

We’ve been sitting ‘round the campfire

All the livelong day

We’ve been sitting ‘round the campfire

Be Purrpared is the Cat Scout Way

Practicing our paw clasp

And telling stories that scare

We’ve been sitting ‘round the campfire

Join us if you dare!

CATNIP DEW

SONG BY BOBCAT FLEETWOOD CAT

Troop: Whisker Warriors & Steel City Scaredy Cats

(Sung in a Johnny Cash Voice)

There’s a big cat tree down the hall here from me

Where you lay down a crunchie treat or two

Well you go round the bend and when you come back again

There’s a jug full of good ole catnip dew

Chorus

They call it that old catnip dew,

And them that refuse it are few.

I’ll hush my pie hole if you’ll fill up my bowl

With that good old catnip dew.

The old meezer Bill runs a still on the hill

Where he turns out a gallon or two

And the buzzards in the sky get so drunk they can’t fly

From sniffing that good old catnip dew.

Repeat Chorus

My cousin the tortie is a sawed off shortie,

She measures ’bout one foot two,

But she thinks she’s a giant when you give her a pint

Of that good old catnip dew.

Repeat Chorus

My uncle Klaus caught a real mean old mouse

It had beat up a dog or two. When they asked how it happened,

He said it was a lappin’

That good old mountain dew

 

Repeat Chorus

BORN TO BE A SCOUT

SONG BY  TENDERPAW TIGER

Troop: Phanny’s Feline Fraternity

(Sung to the tune of “Get Your Motor Running”)

 

Get your motor purrin

Head out to the campfire

Looking for adventure

And lots of fun to transpire

 

Yeah, scouts’

Gonna make it happen

Across the world in a derby race

Salute all of your friends at once

With a big smile on your face!

 

I like art and campin’

Strolling, nomming, hiking

Singing at the campfire,

And all the friends that I’ve found here.

 

Yeah, scouts’

Gonna make it happen

Across the world in a derby race

Salute all of your friends at once

With some nip treats on your plates

 

Like true kitteh cats,

We were born

Born to be scouts

We can purr so loud

I’ve never been so proud!

Born to be scouts

Born to be scouts

 

No hooligans for miles

Only paw clasps and achievments!

Merit badges are awarded

All your friends give compliments!

 

Yeah scouts’

Gonna make it happen

Across the world in a derby race

Salute all of your friends at once

With a big smile on your face!

Like true kitteh cats,

We were born

Born to be scouts

We can purr so loud

I’ve never been so proud!

Born to be scouts

Born to be scouts
