Cub Scout Stew
York Adams Council
There are some rather "complete" actions to this song, so
you need to make sure that there is enough room for the
song and that you explain the actions to everyone before
you begin.
Actions You begin with a couple of leaders at the front of
the room who will sing the song first. At the last word of
the song ("YOU") they will point to someone in the
audience who then comes up to join the group in singing
and who also, at the end of the song, repeats the pointing
Also, when they sing "whip, whip, whip" the singers
should shake their arms and hips (like "cha-cha-cha"?) to
go with the words. (I don't know how else to describe it!)
We're making a Cub Scout Stew (whip, whip, whip)
We're making a Cub Scout Stew (whip, whip, whip)
With Cub Scout potatoes
And Cub Scout tomatoes
And YOU!
The song gets repeated over and over until no one is left in
the "audience" (hence the need for space up front!).
